Very excited to become a member of a fantastic looking forum

Hello all,

As per the helpful suggestion I received upon signing up, I wanted to take a quick minute of your time to introduce myself and say how thrilled I was to find a community built around a new fascination of mine - Mobile reading/The New medium for the literary world.

My name is Joe Keppler, I'm a long time home building professional. I've been fortunate enough to work at nearly every level and position in the industry. But in between all of that, during a pretty hectic schedule, I've crammed in as much reading time as humanly possible.

I am a fan of various genres and sub-genres, but I'd say that thriler-fiction and, perhaps oddly enough, autobiographical non-fic are my most obsessed over genres.

Somewhere along the way, many years ago, I began to write my own short stories. I think my desire to write manifested itself from being inspired by so many great writers as well as my rising need to tell some of the "stranger than fiction" stories that I experienced on a daily basis in the home building world.

I've already taken up enough of your time, so I'll just mention this briefly: I am completely taken with the idea of e-readers in all of their shapes and forms. This is a wild thing for someone like me to admit out loud however, because I could certainly be counted among those that swore allegiance to the physical, traditional print medium. But thanks to some excellent conversations I've had with people about all that this new medium could mean and afford to all of the fantastic, as-of-yet undiscovered writers, I am happy to say that I am a complete convert.

I look forward to discussions with all of you about the "new revolution," and once again, I appreciate your time in welcoming a "newbie."

-Joe

Hi, Joe, and welcome. Like you, I swore allegiance to print books, but ebooks have won me over, especially since I've had books published with an epub. Good luck with your book.l

Wow!!! Ha, I apologize here for not saying thank you for all of the welcomes sooner.
I'm admittedly a little new at posting and then checking for replies to things on message boards. My son would be all over me for not checking sooner.

But thank you all for making a guy feel welcome. This is yet another reason why I'm excited to jump into discussion here. I can tell there's going to be a lot of great feedback.

So thanks again very much, and please excuse my lateness. And DixieGal, apologies again up front if I'm posting this the wrong way here, but my book can be found at:

http://stixnbrixbook.com/ - Website I had created for the book (Working on the Kindle link here.)
and http://www.amazon.com/Stix-N-Brix-eb...3362072&sr=8-2

The last one is the Amazon link to the Kindle copy. Kind of an ugly looking address once it's pasted in! But there it is.
Oh and if you'd like to read the first 5 chapters, you can do that here: http://joekeppler.com/Downloads/Docs...viewforweb.pdf

Thanks again! I'm off to find a topic to discuss... Suggestions most welcome.

Hi Joe, you may be better served by dropping this info into the Author Self Promotion Threads, more members seem to hang out in there than in here .... Good luck.
