Hello

Like I said, I am new to kindle, new to kindleboards, new to forums and have just published my debut adult book (I publish children's fiction too but the two are so different I feel like it's my debut if that makes sense??)

I have tried a few places, looking to connect with like-minded people, especially other authors, but I tend to get a little (a LOT) lost. For example - goodreads- it is so busy and all over the place I never know what I am doing, who I have replied to or who has replied to me. I am (fingers crossed) hoping this forum is a little easier as a hangout. I don't know any authors in real-life and love the idea of popping in of a night after work and saying hi!

Well, that's me. I look forward to meeting you

Now I might go see if I can figure out how people do that thing at the bottom of their posts

Greetings and Welcome, Ellem! We are so glad you found KBoards, 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 KBoards authors:Official master list of Kboards 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 Amazon Kindle Support (all models) & General FAQs in the forum for 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 KBoards may be answered at Your guide to Forum Speak! linked from Forum tips. If not, once again, ask away! Authors my find their questions about KB answered here: Authors: 10 essential KBoards tips. To keep everything running smoothly, we ask that everyone read Forum decorum.
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 device, 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. :)
