Hi everyone,
I'm Cody Young, I write historical romance and YA fiction. I have a kindle book of my own at the 'review' stage. I'm not sure how long it takes but don't expect it to go live til Monday. Not sure how this forum works really, any advice?

Welcome. One of the mods should be by at some point and they'll leave a huge note about all sorts of cool sub-topics to check out.

I just recommending exploring different threads. This place is 'huge' (in a virtual sense) with all sorts of discussions on everything from the nitty-gritty business of "What price should e-books be?" to just people talking about their favorite television show.

Hello Cody,

This area is the place for meet and greets, and a good place to start interacting with new folks. The Book Bazaar area is a good spot for specific promo activity. I don't venture out much further other than that, but just those two locales seem to help. 

Anyway, greetings, and welcome to Kindle Boards!

Well, I'm not a mod but Greetings and Welcome anyway, Cody!! 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. :)

Hi Cody!  I would take yourself over to the Writer's cafe or interact with readers at the Book Corner.  Welcome to the Kindle boards and good luck with your book!

Hi, Cody. I write historical suspense, as well. I agree that the Book Bazaar will give you some threads that often provide interesting marketing tidbits. It's good to poke around regularly. You never know when you'll pick up the tip that solves a problem for you.
Monday will be an exciting day for you, seeing your book live on Amazon! Congratulations!
