REVIEWS (emails, etc.):
"Your job is to write the best you can about the things you care
about. However, I thought your parody of Twilight was very
funny. (I have only read the beginning so far.)"
"If you are one of the people who hate Twilight, the Twihard
craze, and how corporations push books down people's throats, then Jess
C Scott's Literary Heroin is a hilarious catharsis that mocks
the overhyped and sexist series. Scott's mockery of Twilight
and even Twilight knock-off writers will have readers laughing
long after they finish the book, all because it is true that there are
a lot of bad books out there that somehow snag major money and acclaim.
If you want to get the Twilight taste out of your mouth, then
Literary Heroin will do the trick!"
"Funny as hell; awesome satirical moments."
"Jess C Scott smartly chooses her words to really give an electrifying
effect to readers...this is a work that will instigate revolution against
literary mediocrity and mundane novels. I highly recommend this to people
who love books and who hate bad literature!"
