Hey ya'll. I'm CC James (pen name). I just published my first indie book and I'm so excited I can't stand it. It's a YA paranormal adventure series. I'm also published in fantasy romance as Clover Autrey (real name). I've been around publishing for a while and I'm seeing the same conversations about indie publishing as I saw 5 or 6 years ago about the small digital presses. Vanity presses, lack of editing, blah, blah, blah. While that was true for a few predatory presses, the good publishers rose to the top and are still around as I believe will happen with indie writers. Readers are the gatekeepers.

I'm also the PRO Liaison for my local RWA chapter where I teach monthly courses on writing loglines, synopses, blurbs, query letters, characterization--that sort of thing, which is kind of ironic I suppose. If anyone wants help with their blurb or logline, just ask. I'm happy to help when I have the time.

I'm also a professional reviewer with Paranormal Romance Reviews, though I've been on hiatus with them for a while. I had a terminally ill child and that was one of the things I had to cut out. I'm looking to get back into reviewing and PNR allows us to also review books we find ourselves. For them, they have to be romance with some sort of paranormal or supernatural element. Or you can submit to them directly.

I think that's about all . . .

Greetings and Welcome, Clover!! 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. Need help setting up your signature line or avatar? This will be just what you need: Creating Signatures - An Updated tutorial.
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. :)

Oh, CC, you touch my heartstrings on so many levels. But I sense you're beginning to soar again, and that can only be a good thing!
