Hi everyone, my name is Shane, and No, I am not the singer...

I am a writer of Science fictions stories trying my best to fill the minds of people from all over the world with my lovely imaginative stories from the deepest recesses of my mind.

Now, I bet you are all wondering if I have a kindle....(Hides under the table)... Well, I would like to get one at some stage and have you ever heard of an author who does not have a Kindle.... I feel very.... Embarrassed. But someone pointed me to these forums to promote my work, and although I like to do that, I thought I would post this little message of Welcome.

So please welcome me with an open heart and enjoy the stuff I will have to write.

I do have a website that operates the same as these forums, but its mainly a home for everyone to see what I have done, and a limited resource for other websites and such. You are welcome to visit.

Anyway, I'm off to see how these boards work and perhaps post some of my work in the proper places.

P.S, I must say, I do like the way the kindles work, it does not look like a LCD screen or normal screen, but its more like text on paper…

Hi Shane!  Welcome to you too!  Here's to our new journey as we start out.
Hi Shane and welcome to KB!

Such a warm welcome, I feel loved already, Thanks everyone. ;D
Welcome Shane.
Glad you found your way to the KB.
Hope you find friends here.
Welcome!  Is there a singer names Shane Ward?.. I must be out-of-touch...not familiar with the singer.
Best of luck with your Sci-Fi...Without a Kindle how do you read e-books?  Some read them with their phone but I never could.

Hi Shane!!  8) Hope you do well with your writing!!
Welcome Shane!

I actually don't have a Kindle, so don't feel bad. (I have the Nexus 7 that runs a Kindle app... *ducks* Will I get tossed from the boards for admitting that?) I do, however,  have a lot of respect for the Kindles as I've seen them in action. Nice tablets!

Good luck with your writing!
Greetings and Welcome, Shane!! 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:8 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. :)

Yeah, there is a singer called Shayne ward and I am pretty sure I can sing better than him, but I don't want to ruin his reputation so I decided to be a writer and try and acheace the same level is John Grisham or David Baldacci, but on a Science Fiction genre ;D HAHA...

Thanks (intinst) for all the information, I'll keep note of that post so I can prowl around the boards more when I have more time.

Welcome to KB!
Okay, so I was ready to add myself to the big list of kindle authors when I came against a huge brick wall that I have no idea how to climb over. It seems this website has something called a "KB Books" section that lists all the books available for people to buy from amazon or other places. My question is how do I setup an account and list my books on this. I'm sure there must be instructions somewhere, but I can't seem to find them, thats how new I am to this...

However, asking this question, I feel very embarrassed at the answer. But I should ask anyway because this brick wall is still there...

Many thanks.
Hi Shane,

Welcome to the boards!  Nice to meet you.  Probably better to ask the question in the Book Bazaar, you'll likely get more answers.  Enjoy the community!  :)

Welcome! I hope you make a lot of new friends here! :)
