Hi everyone! Nice to meet you all, my name is Bethany but fayrlite is fine too. I'm new to Kindle Boards but not to my kindle. Had it for about a year and a half now. I think it has been one of the best buys I've made in some time. I'm on the go most of the time so it's nice to be able to take my library with me.

Currently I'm a student going for my BA in English Lit. and then a MA in Publishing. I'm a returning student so things are a little different this time around. I'm married and have two kids. My little guy is 2 and my daughter is 5. I spend most of my days running my daughter to various therapies for her autism. When I'm not doing all that I'm editing for my freelance editing business (which has allowed me to combine my passion for reading and my ability to read market trends).

I love all sorts of books but have an odd passion for zombie and post-apocalyptic so if anyone has any suggestions I'd love to hear them. Thanks!

Hi, Bethany.

Welcome to the Kindle Boards.

Though I haven't read it, Amanda Hocking has a young adult zombie post-apocalyptic novel called Hollowland.

All the best,
Reussie

Folks,

while new member-authors may certainly tell us about their books as part of the Introduction, a reminder that self promotion in response is not allowed, as this is outside the Book Bazaar.  A general statement that you are an author, too, is fine as part of your welcomes to new members, otherwise, please let your signatures do your promoting in this forum.

Thanks!

Betsy

Bethany--

there are some discussions of your genre in the Book Corner, and there is also a master list of KB authors by genre pinned to the top of the Book Bazaar. Thanks for joining KindleBoards!

Greetings and Welcome, Bethany!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards! 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. :)
