Hello everyone in the Kindle Boards!

My name is Stephen, and over the past seven months when I wasn't being a struggling college student, I've been writing a book (it started with NaNoWriMo). It's currently in review and should be available for Kindle shortly, and I also have it under review for a physical print version.

The title of my novel is "Hollenguard." It is a standalone high fantasy story, which is a genre that I have a deep, abiding love of. I'm excited and extremely nervous at starting this whole process, but from everything I've seen on the boards I am in good company. I'm looking forward to sharing my work with all of you and enjoying your work as well.

When my book is available, I'll set up a signature link and get myself posted in the official list of KB authors. But for now I just wanted to say hello. So hello!

Greetings and Welcome, SArthurMartin!! 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. :)

Welcome Stephen.  Always enjoy getting up Seattle way.  I really enjoyed being out in Aberdeen, doing research on a true crime book.  And of course, Aberdeen is the home of Kurt Cobain, who eventually made Seattle his home.  There's just something about Washington state that lends itself to noir stories.  Maybe it's the mists and all the surrounding forest.

Thank you for the warm welcomes. I love the Seattle area and yes, it does lend itself well to noir stories. I may be biased because I've always enjoyed the "Shadowrun" setting, and a particular video game from the 90s set in that universe was dripping with noir. Pretty rare to get that experience in a video game back then, and the feeling has stuck with me ever since.

And it isn't noir, but you did mention the aesthetic of the mists and surrounding forest. The outdoor shots for "Twin Peaks" TV series were filmed not far east of Seattle in the Snoqualmie area. Lends it a nice air of mystery, and if you're looking for that sort of setting I'd highly suggest heading up that way the next time you visit. The falls are beautiful.

Content removed circa September 2018 after realizing this forum was bought by VerticalScope -- a foreign corporation with seemingly suspicious motives and a bad attitude apparently attempting to grab rights retroactively. They can have the rights to this statement!
