Kiana Davenport and Ian Fraser are two writers who prove that self-published Kindle books aren't all like the bottom of an agent's slush pile. Both already earned their writing credibility the hard way, which helps, but I suspect they'd excel anyway because they are the kind of writers who won't let a work out until it's truly ready.
Fraser's blog is also an interesting read. Today I was reading a previous post about the grotesque in literature.
Davenport has a new book out that I plan to read soon. I'm looking forward to it.
