Hello!  I was told this was a warm, friendly, enthusiastic message board, so I'm excited to meet people and get talking about books.  I have the Kindle ap on my ipod touch, but I've seen a friend's full Kindle and it looks pretty awesome, I might have to save up for one.

I'm an indie author and have a couple of books for Kindle, but I'll go off and find a book advertising thread to talk more about that!

I'm still trying to figure some stuff out, haven't been able to modify my profile to put in a picture or a signature yet, but I'll get it eventually.

Greetings and Welcome, Ruth!! 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 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. Further questions 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. :)

Nice to meet a fellow kindle author.
Who does your book covers for you? Do you have any marketing advice for other authors?

Sorry to respond so late! I JUST found the button that lets you see replies to your posts. Sometimes I feel so dumb.

I did my own book covers so far and they aren't great. At least (W)hole is pretty eye catching! I started this self-pubbing thing a few years ago and there wasn't the same community then to tap into. For the future I would like to hire cover artists. I have a graphic artist friend at work, so I'm going to see if she will design a cover for me.

I've been studying and reading up on marketing, so I've gathered the resources I've found onto a squidoo page, the link for which is in my sig.
