Hi Fellow Kindle Lovers!

I joined quite a while ago but never got around to posting. I bought a Kindle 3 back in February and it has changed my life! :) I read ten times faster, it seems, and have access to writing that I never had before. I'm also a newly published author on Amazon because of the Kindle, and so happy.
I was born and raised in Hawaii, where I now live in Kona. I have two degrees, an MS in Higher Education Administration, and a BA in English. I loved being an English major- it really taught me a lot. My most favorite time periods are the medieval and renaissance eras. If you know of a good historical fiction novel set in that general era, let me know because I'd love to check it out.

Glad to be here!

Thank you for the warm welcome. :)

Yes, a lot from college has stuck with me, but my memory's getting bad and I'm only 38. lol. Can't wait til I'm 60, I won't remember a thing!
Most of what I recall is how to think critically and of course all the great writing (and why they were great, usually).

Hi Violet,
Nice to meet you and welcome to the Boards. I'm afraid I don't write in the time frames you mention. I write contemporary dark crime and historical family sagas, but they are based in the 1830s. Forgot to say I'm from Scotland, and agree that since getting my Kindle I seem to read more, whether that equates with faster is less certain.

Hello, Violet! If you haven't read Juliet Marillier, you might check her out. Her Sevenwaters Series is excellent, based loosely on fairy tales, but quite amazing. I'm a great fan of hers.
Best success to you in your publishing!
