Hello from Toronto!

Hi everyone,

I just discovered this lovely community, and I look forward to meeting you all, finding new ebooks, and engaging in some good conversation.

I just bought myself a Kindle. They're new here in Canada. After three years of being jealous of Americans, we finally have Kindle here up north.

I also just uploaded my own novel, the fantasy "Firefly Island", to the Kindle store. "Firefly Island" was published in hardcover three years ago. It's GREAT to finally see it for sale on Kindle, with a new cover and all. (I love how it's only $1.99 now, instead of the $26 hardcover.)

I'll be browsing around this site, and exploring more of MobileRead.com. Just wanted to say hello first!

Daniel

Hi Daniel and welcome to MobileRead. Bad news! We're not allowing any more Canadians to join MR until you stop sending all those damn Alberta Clippers down here.

Shoot. I didn't think you'd fall for that. Oh well, welcome aboard.

Welcome to MR, Daniel, and how exciting to get a new Kindle and have your book in the Kindle store.

It is always great when authors join and participate in our forums.

We are a worldwide forum of many devices and some of us will not be able to purchase your book. Have you considered selling your book in other formats? ePub is a format that is widely used by many devices. Have you looked into selling your book on Smashwords.com, a site that allows customers worldwide to purchase, as there are no geographic restrictions and they sell in a variety of formats?

You can even explore using Calibre and Kovid, the creator, frequents the forums here. We even have a dedicated Calibre forum.

MR has free ebooks that have been beautifully formatted by some very dedicated MR members.
For your Kindle..Mobi / prc format ebooks - download the MobiGuide and get your books via Whispernet..(up on the top left in the blue bar.. click on ebooks.. then in the drop down menu choose Mobipocket download guide)

Some free ebook sites - feedbooks.com This site also has a Kindle Guide to download and you can get their books via Whispernet - there is a video on how to use the guide. Also, manybooks.net and Project Gutenburg

Free and for purchase ebooks smashwords.com and baen.com Plus Baen has a great free library

Here are a couple of book search engines for finding and comparing book prices.. AddAll and Inkmesh.

Please join in the discussions and ask questions if you want to learn or would like clarification. There are many friendly, knowledgeable members who will jump in and answer (or point you in the right direction).

PS Check my signature and click on the links to find more information.

Hi Dreams,

Yes, "Firefly Island" is on Smashwords, too! It costs $1.99 there, too, and is available in epub format.

You can find it at: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/12299

Thanks!

Daniel
