So, I just chose the "Cheesy" icon for this thread. Why? Because there was a drop-down box saying "Message icon", which is an invitation to be annoying, and I had to take it. That pretty much sums me up, which is why I chose "Cheesy".

About me: I'm Australian but live in Poland. No idea why. It just sort of happened by accident. I worked in IT in Australia but now teach English (it's the easiest job for a non-EU citizen to get here without a VISA [I have one now]) and I like to think my highly technical previous life and my highly linguistic/social current life have both helped me out a lot with my writing.

I just published a novel, Equivocal Destines, to Amazon, but I won't drone on about that here. I'll post something to the bazaar later. I= could say a lot about that, but again, not the place.

I'm most definitely a Kindle user, but to be honest, I'm moving way from Kindle. I used to have an actual Kindle, until some moron broke it on the bus, so now I use the software on my tablet. As an author though, I really don't appreciate Amazon's restrictive conditions and practices, so I'll move over to something else sometime soon. I love the hardware, software and selection, but the conditions don't sit well with me.

Something else interesting about me. By far above and beyond everything else - my fiance is a very accepting person, in that she completely understands that I quite probably love my dog Chutney more than even her :) OK, maybe not...

Welcome.
Glad you found your way to the KB.
Hope you find friends here.

My friend Intinst used to post this info, hope it helps:
Greetings and Welcome!! We are so glad you found KBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle, whether readers or writers.(Really, there are many members who are not writers!) We have many areas that you probably will like. Have you been to The Book Corner yet? That's the area for Reader discussions - share your book reviews and recommendations, and new discoveries. That's also where you will find threads about books Recommended by our Members and a Book Lover's Link Threadipedia designed to help both Newbies and Oldbies find some of the various resources, suggestions and recommendations available in the Book Corner and on the internet in general.
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 from the writers point of view. The Bazaar is also where you will locate Bargain Books and even Free Books threads where you can get reading material at low or no cost! The Cafe also has the New KBoards Yellow Pages -- for author (and reader) services.
If you have a question about your Kindle or it's usage, check out 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 KBoards 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: Tips, FAQs and Useful Threads for Authors
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. Also, the Accessories area can be fun. 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 KBoards that I just get carried away.
:)
