Your Favorite eBook Forum/Marketplace for Authors

Just a simple question. I'm starting to get into writing ebooks and would love to know what some of your favorite eBook forums/marketplaces are for writers/authors? (besides this one of course)

Thanks!

Whispering - you mention KUF - they are very friendly. KUF are the UK version of Kindle Boards. Both of these are specific to Kindle readers (in case you hadn't twigged *winks* )

Not forums but if you are serious about the business side of commercial writing in the ebook age you should check out: http://kriswrites.com/category/business/

Ms Rusch has a series of very educational weekly columns there.

Case in point, this week's column on the difference between working to be a published author and building a writing career:

Interesting post - it set me thinking! Somewhere along the line I've stepped over from a one book to a career writer - it's just that the bank manager hasn't noticed yet!
