Hello to you,
I'm new to kindle, and have only just heard of Kindle Board, so this is my first message, and I'm not sure really who I am talking to. My name is Ann Evans and I'm an English children's author who has just discovered how fantastic kindle is for getting out of print titles back on the 'shelves' for new readers to enjoy.
I've always loved writing - and reading, and have been writing for a living for over 20 years.
Some of my early titles have long been out of print, so fairly recently, I took another look at four particular stories (which I'd got the copyright back for) and decided to re-write them, bringing them up to date, giving them a new series name and new cover, and bringing them out as ebooks.
The books - all kids murder mysteries were originally published by Scholastic as 'sealed mysteries' where the last chapter could be 'pulled out' to reveal whodunnit!
Well actually, they published the first three, but sadly the fourth book didn't see the light of day because of an editorial decision. (Ho hum!) So there's a brand new crime story story that hasn't been read - as yet!
I wanted my new series title to reveal they were murder mysteries for younger readers - so I've come up with the series title: Little Tyke Murder Mysteries, and I think Amazon have linked them to the printed titles of Fishing for Clues, Stealing the Show, Pushing his Luck - and the new title is Pointing the Finger. I obviously couldn't re-create the 'pull-out' pages, so I've added a link to a webpage where the young readers can check for clues and red herrings.
I have a website if anyone wants to take a look, it's www.annevansbooks.co.uk
Thanks for reading my ramblings.
Ann

Thank you Mel,
I haven't yet figured out how to add a photo etc to my profile, but no doubt will get the hang of it.
Your books look excellent.
Ann

Greetings and Welcome, Ann!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle. We have many areas that you probably will like. Have you been to The Book Corner yet? That's the area for discussions about books (naturally :D ). That's also where you will find threads about books Recommended by our Members and a list of additional sites for Book Lovers.
Then there is the Book Bazaar where our member/authors post about their books and the Writers' Cafe that has discussions about writing, publishing and many other topics. Here is a link to all the KindleBoards authors:Unofficial master list of Kindleboards Authors. That is also where you will locate Bargain Books and even Free Books threads where you can get reading material at low or no cost! Here is a link to get you started: Master list of free & under $1 titles available from Amazon.
If you have a question about your Kindle or it's usage, check out the FAQ or the forum about Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting . Or, just ask your question. We have many helpful and knowledgeable people here at KB and we feel there is no such thing as a "dumb" question. Questions about KindleBoards may be answered at Your guide to Forum Speak! linked from Forum tips. If not, once again, ask away! To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum. There are a few points there particularly for authors. Further questions concerning KB may be answered here: Authors: 7 essential KindleBoards tips.
Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Be sure and check out the Photo Gallery, where pictures of members, pets, flowers, landscapes or just almost anything interesting can be found.
Have you been to the Accessories area? There you will see information about covers, skins, lights, bags, stands and many other items to allow you to personalize your Kindle.
Looking to just kill some time while you are waiting for your Kindle or if you have your kindle, want to try something different? Try INFINITY Game - Word Association or The "INFINITY" Thread: KEEP POSTING...Ready, Set,... GO!!! in the Not Quite Kindle area.
Sorry for the long post, but there is just so much to do, learn and like about KindleBoards that I just get carried away. :)
