Lit-blogger reviewers offer the authentically different and new when they review books outside the tops-down conglomerate stream. Otherwise, what they're doing is no difference at all. A good start for them would be to review the two new titles from ULA Press. (www.ulapress.com)
OUR WRITERS ARE DIFFERENT
Our writers don't come through the standard MFA feeder programs. They represent an entirely new way of finding and creating writers.
Author Wred Fright, for instance, of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus, is a long-time zeen writer whose novel first appeared in serial form as a long-running zeen. A very popular zeen, within the underground, which received rave reviews from zeen review publications. Among thousands of zeen writers, Wred's work stood out. He built his own audience. We offer his novel now to the general public-- those who to their own detriment have never heard of the print underground. Wred isn't a "failed writer" at all, but within the literary realm he was spawned in, a very successful one who now wishes to broaden his audience.
Literature will progress ONLY if it seeks new writing, new ideas, new ways of creating and promoting the art-- which is what the Underground Literary Alliance is about. Contact our Jeff Potter, tell him you're a blog reviewer, and he'll gladly forward to you review copies of our books. www.literaryrevolution.com
