Hi all,

I'm Keri Stevens. I got a kindle for Christmas because Santa thought that if I was going to be an e-pubbed author (Stone Kissed, Carina Press) I ought to be able to read my own book.

Now I have 300 books on the kindle, who-knows-how-many in my archive, and my kids will have to pay their own way through college because I'm a one-click addict.

Hi, Keri.

Welcome to Kindle Boards!

I was also just got my Kindle too (after publishing 3 books!). It sure is wonderful.

Much success to you.

(I just followed you on Twitter.)

Thank you for the welcome! I feel like I've just walked into NOLA during Mardi Gras, and people are throwing books instead of beads. :)

Greetings and Welcome, Keri!! 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. :)

Wow! I went to the library to sign up for summer reading and came back to such a warm welcome. Thanks especially to IntInst - I'm about to go link crazy figuring this out.  And yeah, NapCat -- E's & A's are my kind of people.

I see a lot of Scotland and England on the board - do you get the same selection at kindle.uk that we get here in the US?  After a couple of glasses of Wein or Bier I might be inclined to find out if there's a German Kindleboard (Kindelbrett?) too...

Thank you, Teresa.
I must admit I'm curious about the spork!

I did a youtube spot for National Library Week if people want to see how I look, sound and talk with my hands. I even worked my Kindle into the clip:


So excited we'll get Kindle lending in the fall.

Hi Keri!

Your very pretty!  Make sure you let your readers know that they dont have to have a kindle to read your books. add the link to the free apps for pc mac iphone etc that amazone offers. I've found it really helps sales.
