Hey, I have never published anything . :eek:  Well, a few poems in an anthology at Uni. But we had to buy several copies each to pay for printing..I don't think that counts. I read about Kindleboards in a magazine I don't want to advertise here. I read an article about how to self publish and will be searching the site for conversations about how people have gone with that.
YES i have a kindle. The cheapest little black and white guy. He has won my heart because he just travelled through Europe with me and was never a burden. ALst time i travelled six years ago i carried Lonely Planet Books the size of ponies in my backpack. Now I travelled with three lonely planet books and about eleven novels- which weighed as much as a sandwich ( vegetarian).

I have written an historical romance set in gloomy times of WWII. It's autobiographical. But its my grandmother's story. MAybe that means it's not autobiographical?

I want to delve into erotic fiction or romance..what do they call it " Bodice rippers" but with cynical twist. I read you can't be both romantic and cynical. I am living proof that you can.

So some websites about self publishing cynical rather than cheesy romance? Anti Romance? Ideas !?

Hello, Antoinette. Welcome to Kindle Boards. I hope you like it here.
Greetings and Welcome, Antoinette!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle, so our forum is for both readers and writers. 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! 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 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 from authors concerning KB may be answered here: Authors:8 essential KindleBoards tips.
Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Do you have a Kindle Fire? Join in the conversations or ask questions in the Fire Talk area. 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!!! or one of the other threads 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. :)
