I've tried resetting it by holding the power button for 20 seconds, but I haven't been able to get past the splash screen.

it maybe in fastboot mode, try restarting KFU a few times, or try command prompt
fastboot reboot-bootloader
if fastboot commands work you can flash Twrp manually

I tried fastboot, to no avail. Then I ran KFU and during it, Windows said that the ADB device had been recognized, and then the installation of TWRP supposedly went through (have not been able to check it). Then I tried installing FFF, but got the < waiting for device > that was the original problem. This was back on the original computer (Windows 7), but will try on the Windows 8 computer now that the Kindle is back on.

Hmm, the boot logo is still the same. I'm going to try and install TWRP again.

So this is what seems to work the best for me (even though it doesn't work). With the Windows 8 computer, the Kindle is recognized in the ADB devices. I can run KFU and it actually is able to communicate with the device, but then the Kindle stalls when trying to reboot in fastboot mode. I cannot do anything with it in Windows 8. So I connect it to the Windows 7 machine, where I cannot install TWRP, but I can reboot it into normal mode, so it is not bricked, and it is still usable.

As far as I can tell, it never even got to the point where it would have started installing TWRP.

try manually reboot to bootloader with
[fastboot] stock 6.2.1 fastboot mode without rooting or cables
if that works manually flash TWRP with Fastboot.exe

I think my issue was the computer not recognizing the device once it was in fastboot mode. I reinstalled the drivers (which I had done before), but this time they worked on the Windows 8 computer, so I was able to get TWRP and FFF on the device. I am working on getting CM11 on it currently. Thanks for all the help so far!

I got it all working: TWRP, FFF, and CM11. As far as I can tell, there are no issues any more. I haven't tried ADB after putting CM11 on it, but I'm not going to worry about that since I already have the recovery and bootloader installed.
