Good Morning to all. I hope you are cooler than us today. I'm a new Kindle author (Iron Branch: A Civil War Tale of a Woman In-Between) and just learning the ropes here. LSU Press published my first non-fiction book last year and will release another (Bayou-Diversity: Nature & People in the Louisiana Bayou Country) in October. I'm looking forward to learning from all of you.

Greetings and Welcome, Kelby!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle. 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 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: Authors: 7 essential KindleBoards tips.
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. :)

Ah, the fan is blowing on me as I type this, Kelby.  And I'm in N.B. Canada.  Welcome to the boards from a fellow author, but of suspense novels.  I wish you much success with your book!

Best, Joan

It's cooler than it has been here in Wisconsin but looks like we'll still be getting into the upper 80's. I'd say I'll be happy when summers over but that just means winter for up here and we get enough of that. :)  Congrats on being published and good luck with your writing.

Welcome to Kindleboards, Kelby. What a great author name! Is it real or a pen name? Either way, it looks nice on a book, right?

Yes, Ebookeditingpro, it is my real name.  There are not many Kelbys out there and far fewer Ouchleys (rhymes with "smooch-lee").  The origin of my surname remains a mystery to the family.  Solve it and I'll send a free copy of my books!  Thanks to all for the hearty welcome.

Welcome! And no, Nebraska is just plain stifling this summer...high heat and humidity. And I KNOW what you are experiencing. I made 5 trips to New Orleans after Katrina to do recovery missions. It's beastly down there. I can certainly empathize! Best of success with your book. You'll find lots of good tidbits here if you skim the threads frequently.
