Hello all,

New to the Kindleboards, just joined today. Was about two weeks ago or so I was nudged into publishing my books on Kindle and I'm learning of a whole new culture here! I'm used to publishing in paperback and letting someone else do the cover design and promoting and so forth, but I have to say with self-publishing now, I'm having a lot more fun and drive than ever when it comes to my book's success. I'd like you guys to visit my official website: http://www.wix.com/jwholmes2011/jw-holmes-index. It will have links to everything else out there I'm on.

As of today I have only my first title, Vanilla Rains, on Kindle. A popular poetry collection that will be followed here soon (approx. June 27th) by my YA fiction, "A Riff of His Own" and then two screenplays I'm putting to Kindle before I get back to writing any new material. I would love to meet you people and get used to Kindleboard. Looks like a great place to discuss things.

~ J

Greetings and Welcome, J.W. !! 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. Need help setting up your signature line or avatar? This will be just what you need: Creating Signatures - An Updated tutorial.
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. :)
