Hello All,

I am so thrilled to have found this board and to embark on membership. My first book, Happiness as a Second Language, will be going to e-press in a couple of weeks, and I have many, many questions for the people here.

Just a little about myself: Started life as a corporate securities lawyer and investment banker, transitioned from that into a somewhat successful screenwriting career, wrote a book about learning how to be happy, wasted two years with a book agent who went nowhere with it, fired him and decided to self publish. So...here we are.

Scary? Yep.
Super excited? You bet.
Open to any and all insight/knowledge/opinion? Oh, hell yes!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone here better.
Feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn, http://www.linkedin.com/in/goalkeeper
And I hope you'll check out my blog, Speak Happiness. http://speakhappiness.wordpress.com/

Greetings and Welcome, Valerie!! 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. :)

Welcome, Valerie.  It seems there's something about being in the legal profession that leads one to writing. 

Best of luck on your journey.

Nice blog Valerie! I know you'll be successful in life if you're always seeking happiness. You'd probably interested in my new book The Nexus Complex: A Personal Guide to Truth. One of it's focal points is what happiness is according to the actuality of Truth...and how to achieve it. Anyhoo...I wish you the best of luck and I'm here for any advice. I did a ton of research the last couple of years before publishing and I'd be happy to help!
