Merry Meet everyone!  Maggie Shayne here, posting an intro as per instructions, and I hope I'm doing it right!  Anyway, I'm new here (obviously!) and eager to try to learn my way around.  I've published 51 novels over the years for many publishers, am currently with MIRA books, and am just now getting a few backlist titles up on Kindle and elsewhere.  Learning the ropes there too.  I live in a very rural farm town in Southern Central NY near Binghamton/Syracuse/Cortland with my man, two giant English mastiffs, a little English bulldog, an arrogant cat, a cocky bearded dragon, and a saltwater coral reef aquarium.  It's a lot!  Great to be here!  Am I allowed to post my website in my intro?  I won't, just in case. (I did read the rules for authors posting, which scared me silly, to be honest!)  Anyway, waving hello as I poke around the neighborhood.

Greetings and Welcome, Maggie!! 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. :)

Thanks for the welcome!  Gosh, look at all your neat little graphics and covers and links at the bottom of your posts!  I will eventually learn how to do that, I vow!

Welcome Maggie!  I'm from upstate NY myself.  (Batavia, inbetween Rochester and Buffalo.)  I'm green with envy over the 51 books and the saltwater aquarium.  I've never had the time/knowledge/space/money to fit one into my life.  Do you love it?  I do have a koi pond, which is a nice compromise.

I'm impressed, Maggie.  That's quite a body of work.  I'm a baby compared, although one of my books is the Kindle book of the Day. -:)  I'm from Canada, love my Kindle.

I'll look for your books.  Mira is a great imprint.

Almost enough reason to avoid posting an intro.

We have no auto-respondy welcomey things. ;D All welcomey things are posted by real people. Don't be scared.

Welcome, Maggie Shayne! I saw your book on Smashwords today and went "Hey, there's Maggie Shayne"!

I saw you speak at the Toronto RWA a couple years ago!

Welcome, and happy kindleboarding!
