Hi,

New to Kindleboards but been publishing on Kindle for a few weeks. I love my Kindle 3 and am thrilled to have my first novel out in the wild on the device. So far, the experience has been good with sales in all three markets and still no marketing done.

I'm originally a New Zealander but now I am Swiss. My first book, The Spanish Helmet plays out in both countries but with British and Spanish heroes (two interwoven threads). I love my home in Switzerland and intend to stay on here. The next novel will be based solely in the Swiss Alps. Very inspirational landscape.

Happy to have found Kindleboards and look forward to meeting a few fellow authors and readers.

Greg

Greetings and Welcome, Greg!! 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. :)

Congratulations Greg. 

You should go to link-maker on the list at the top of the board to put links to your books in your signature.  People will be able to find them easily then.

Hi Greg:

Just recently joined the Kindle boards myself.  Congratulations on your book.  You're definitely in a beautiful part of the world.  Should be very inspirational for new projects. 

My new e-book, a mystery, is set in 19th century Yosemite.  So some pretty awe-inspiring scenery around there as well. 

Best,

Robert Scott
