Who the hell is KJ Kron?

So, who the hell is KJ Kron?
Well, he has sat at the top-of-the-pile on Slush Pile Reader for most of the last year, and he also did his stint on HarperCollins’ Authonomy. On February 1st, unless an earthquake or volcano washes us all away, Slush Pile Reader will offer and publish his novel, St Peter Killed God.
In his own words about his journey:

I’ve read over 850 books on authonomy and Slush Pile Readers and I feel very ADD. But that was the old way of making it to the ED as I tried to read ten or more a day spending way too much time on-line. My attention span must be shrinking as I wonder how good these books are all the way through. It helps / humbles to read all these stories. No wonder why it’s so hard to break through – there are so many talented writers out there and so many intense stories. But the problem I have is simple: are these writers able to keep it up throughout their books. 

There are scores of fantastic books I’ve read during my stints on authonomy and slush pile reader, but I’ve only bought and read three of them all the way through – partially because they were published. There are so many that I’d love to buy and read – man, it’ll be a long time before I’m hurting for a good book to read. The three I read are impressive all the way through and I higly recommend all of them.

I feel an interview coming on….
