Hello the Kindle Boards Community! :)

My pen name is Adrian Howell, which doubles as the main character of my PSIONIC Pentalogy: five novels that follow the life of a telekinetic teenager through a dark underworld of warring paranormal factions. (I liked the idea of publishing under my character name since it allows the fiction to read a little like an autobiography.)

The real me, having grown up in the American Midwest, currently lives and works in Japan.

Though I started writing in 2008, I had decided not to publish any of my novels until I was done with the series, so now I suddenly have five books on Kindle but I am still very new to this publishing world.

With all the Kindle formatting, Create-Space-ing, and everything-else-ing, it took a while to get myself registered here, but now I regret not coming around sooner. This looks like a great place to be.

I will get around to posting my books in the bazaar and combing through the rest of forum later, but for now I just wanted to say hi.

Please do find me here if you have a few minutes to spare: http://adrianhowell.blogspot.jp/

Greetings and Welcome, Adrian!! We are so glad you found KindleBoards, an independent resource for people who own or have interest in Kindle, so our forum is for both readers and writers. 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! 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:10 essential KindleBoards tips.
Another popular place is Let's Talk Kindle, where all things in the Kindle world are posted about. Do you have a Kindle Fire? Join in the conversations or ask questions in the Fire Talk area. 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!!! or one of the other threads 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. :)
