Welcome.
« on: September 16, 2018, 01:11:30 AM »
Welcome to the forum.

This is a place for writers to discuss anything about writing, and readers to discuss books. To this end, various areas have been created to keep things on topic. Anything else can be discussed in the Off Topic areas.

The forum has 2 aspects to it. Public areas, and Member only areas.

In Public areas, everything you post will be indexed into Google and other search engines.

In Member only areas, post should be private. (If anyone discovers they are not, let me know.)

Choose wisely which area to post in. If you make a mistake or change your mind about where you made a new thread, contact me or a moderator to get it moved. If it appears obvious it is in the wrong place, it probably will be moved. If it gets moved and this bothers you, by all means ask us to move it back.

The only real rule here is to BE NICE. Although some areas will have their own rules, such as to avoid over-promotion and spam.

There is a moderation statement here, please read it. http://thehunterlegacy.com/authortest/index.php?topic=9.0

If you want to make suggestions for forum layout changes, use the area for this purpose.

If you have a problem, let me know. I cant fix what I dont know about.

Please bear with us as the forum goes through its birthing pains.

Timothy, thanks so much for taking the time to do this. Given that kb evolved from kindle to writerly discussions, it was high time the Writer's Café was organized. Seems like VS did a favor. Onwards!

I've campaigned there several time to get the writers area expanded, but they ignored all calls.

I feel sorry for those professionals who "gave VerticalScrape the benefit of the doubt." It looks like I -just- made the cutoff to have my account deleted. I suspect that this forum may be the future home for many kBoards refugees.

GEEEEEZ, I get distracted by hurricane Florence, come back, and bedamned if a hurricane didn't hit online, too. AND looks like I missed out on the opportunity to delete my other profile which is just the cherry on top.  :shocked:

Loving the smileys, though.  :icon_rofl:

Hello good  people.   :mhk9U91:  I hope you folks don't mind someone stepping out of writing lurkdom to sign on this board. 
 
Work and life events had me step back from the writing world for two years or so, but I've got some actual me/writing time again and here I am.  E-pub closings have left me with a sizeable backlist I'm staring to revise and hope to get back out there sooner than later.  I hope to make some new writing friends and absorb some of your self-publishing wisdom.

Thank you so much for creating this forum and giving us a new home. Even though I was largely a lurker at KB, it's still great to have this new place that happens to be run by an author, which makes me feel more at home. Cheers! :)

Thanks for doing this Timothy. I'm not a huge poster over on KB, nor prob will I be here. I'm a - prefer my paid forum with team of awesome mods kinda gal. But I'm happy there's a place if KB sinks into the ocean because despite it's many faults its needed. Thank for taking this on! Grin

Good to see some avatars I recognise  :cool: . I'm only posting so I can try out the smilies  grint:banana: . Please don't have too many. I used to correspond with a friend via Skype text and emoticons. We gave up using the emoticons because there were simply too many and it wasted time looking for the ones we wanted, and I didn't know what many of them were supposed to be  :undecided:

Exactly my thoughts. :D So: Hello everyone! Hope you don't mind another lurker joining you.

Also Thanks @Timothy for setting this up. I am so glad this community (and its wisdom :angel:) won't be lost.

I'm here. I made it. I loved WC for the mods and the authors so when you guys decamped, I followed. Many good people still there but I'll probably lurk. This will be my third time trying to settle into a forum that doesn't melt down on me. (first AW and now WC) Third time's the charm, right?
Thank you Timothy for making this happen and when we all get our bearings, hopefully a "many hands make light work" sort of thing will happen.

Thank you for creating this, Timothy! 

I'm mostly in Lurk Mode lately due to health issues and work, but I was watching the whole Kboards debacle and promptly deleted my signature, all pictures and blurbs, and have been slowly overwriting my 1100+ posts there.

It's nice to have the signature back AND be able to include all three of my pen names.

Finally got around to registering here. I didn't post a lot over at the other place, but I plan to get more involved now. Good to see all the familiar faces whose posts I learned so much from over there.
