Hey hey hey!

"I wonder if this new site glitches out special characters, too?” he asked, intentionally using quotation mark to see what would happen.

Same name, same avatar to which I have no commercial rights, since it's a Pre-Raphaelite painting of Medea.

Even when a contract is clearly unenforceable, I won't sign. Especially when it is inapt and a rights grab, I won't sign. I've walked away with zero regrets from several instances of contracts that were rights grabs, or loyalty oaths, or attempting to control my future actions.

In this situation I have little to lose, since I don't use my real name here and I sign up to websites using an email address that does not connect to my main one. But having little to lose isn't the point.

The emojis are a little...busy.

Edited to correct parallel construction. I should know better.

Old KindleBo- oops, I mean Kboarder of seven years standing. Decided to try the anonymous thing. New name, new avatar. Nobody knows who I am :)  Strange feeling. Not sure how long the anonymity thing will last.  Till I need feedback on a book cover, I suppose...

All the cool kids seemed to be coming over here, so I waltzed over, too. I shortened my name and gave myself an avatar this time.

What are all the emoji in the editor??? ICK!!!! Is there a way to turn that ### off?

Reporting for duty. Same name, different avatar - figured I'd give you all a break from my ugly mug.

I was one of those waiting to see what would happen over on kboards - then Helena happened. Although I haven't requested that my account there be deleted, I'm not keen on being overly active on a forum where the owner's response to a valid concern is 'so sue me'.

Nice to see so many familar names - hope many more join and this becomes the kboards that once was.
Sam! Welcome, welcome! We've got a shovel and a bucket for you. (Wait do kBoards jokes carry over to here?)

Using same name as at kboards (though I think I capitalized it here). Recently known there as unknownwriter.

Just a note to folks, please remove the kboards affiliate code from your signatures. Why give them any chance to make more money off you? I think Timothy has his own code, use yours, or don't have one. It's easy enough to remove, if you copied over the links from kboards (as I did, once I found them again using the Link Maker).
I write various flavors of speculative fiction. This is my main pen name.

Gene! We need links and stuff so that people can read your superb work.

Don't be mad, but I still haven't read Unfiction. I've got it, so I guess you got paid and stuff. Is there a Fixer sequel on the horizon?

Hello, I was a KB member back in the halcyon days of 2011 but started lurking again this summer when I launched my book cover design empire. So I guess that makes me an emperor?

Anyway, hi. I'm Steve *gleefully waves*

Holy cow, I need to figure out how to resize the book covers in my sig. The new ones I just added to the old code showed up GINORMOUS.

I hope it didn't scare anyone who saw it before I hurried up and deleted my sig.  :icon_redface:

ETA: Figured it out. I just had to put a lower number as the last element of each URL.

I didn't post often enough for you to know me from a can of spam, but I was a major lurker and I'm glad to see you here Becca  Grin

Hey, Becs.  I saw you registered earlier, but I wasn't sure if you'd post or not.  Glad to see you did.   :kiss:

Thanks Cranky and Jeff! :mhk9U91:

I stand corrected on the lack of a kissie emoji. Um ... love how the guy's eyeballs pop off ...  :icon_eek:

I'm here. Not that anyone knows me, but hi!  :banana:

Hi Susanne!  :smiley:

<waves> Figured I'd better stake out a place here, in case I get tossed out on my ear over there.

My god, Timothy, the emojis ...  :shocked:

I'm responding for two reasons.

One to say ... So glad to see you here, Becca.

Two ... I just had to see these emojis.   :Tup3a:

Hi Maggie Ann! Only one question: why thumbs-up once, when you can, you know, do it four times in slightly different ways?

I am here. I don't intend to give up the other place, unless I get thrown out. I've already shocked a moderator into putting me on post review. I hope the mods here aren't so easily shocked. :banana-riding-llama-smiley-em

I know what you mean. I got banned over there for using the word "snowflake" in a post.   :banana:

Thanks for the new forum, Timothy. I was mostly a lurker on kboards but it has been so important in my writing journey. I'm anxiously watching for more of those who posted (or used to post) frequently over there to show up here. I've learned so much from them, and enjoy their kindness/snark/humor/wisdom/courage and their willingness to share real life experience as successful authors.  (Amanda, Rosalind, Monique, Patty, Wayne, PhoenixS to name a few.) Timothy, EB, Pauline and Boyd are other favorites and they're already here!  :roll:  (I know I'll think of more people I should have included, but these are the ones who came to mind first.)
