"Dear Jess, I just wanted to say how much I've enjoyed your writing:
your writing reflects something genuine, something real, about our generation
that few writers have had the talent or the courage to uncover. Thank
"[The Devilin Fey] was erotic
without being pornographic, emotional without being sappy, spiritual
without being preachy…just enjoyable reading. Kudos to Jess C Scott."
"I've just bought a few of your titles for my Kindle. Btw, I'm
actually a very vanilla, 40-something year old. I read your short eBook
on the general topic of erotica. I liked it. I particularly like the
way you maintain a certain level of 'breeziness' so that your reader
never feels like he/she is being taken hostage by the author's agenda."
"There is this incredibly powerful, immutable truth entwined with
sexuality that is mocked and denigrated by the media, everything from
pornography to babies being written off as a nuisance...and erotic literature
is SO important, because I think it's the one venue where these issues
can get a legitimate spotlight and serious discussion. Lumping erotica
and pornography together is so destructive!"
"If you would like to try something different, download a copy
of The Art of Erotic Writing. It'll give you a lot of important
things to consider and think about--intrinsic values that are a world
of difference from the stuff the hype-fueled mainstream media prefers
"[The Art of Erotic Writing] gives a distinction between
relationship focused sex and pornography. That was the motivator to
blog about my slut shaming incidents I encountered in the last few months.
