Hey everyone!  New Kindle owner, writer, and KindleBoard forum poster.  Right after I published to Kindle, I ran out and bought one, and man do I love it.  I don't think I ever want to read a print book again.  

I read every genre, but have a soft spot for PNR and fantasy.  The series I'm currently working on I would classify as paranormal romance light - that's light on the paranormal, heavy on the romance.  

Happy to be here and looking forward to meeting everyone.

Greetings and Welcome, cdhussey!! 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. :)

I'm with you. I got my Kindle for the same reason and was really surprised how much I enjoy using it. When I was setting up my website, the tech
I was talking with (he was a student in law school) told me his friends that read won't have anything to do with hard copies anymore. Interesting.
I see you promoted your book, wasn't sure that was allowed. Good luck with it. And if you find some good places to get a review, please share!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

Marla_m, Goodreads is an excellent place to solicit reviews.  There are many willing readers/reviewers.  Of course, reviews can be good or bad.
