Jade Ashton is a sassy virgin. In her private blog, she vents about “fitting in” a world where superficiality reigns supreme.

Suddenly all logic flies out the window when she meets Novan: the former geek, who’s morphed into a delicious songwriter-musician.

They decide to be “friends-with-benefits.” But it’s Novan, with his poems and riddling passages on his own blog — which *isn’t private* — that backs out.

EyeLeash captures self-discovery in the 2000s, and showcases the colorful, intricate drama in two youths’ relentless search for themselves — and what’s really in their hearts.

"Jess C Scott is the 21st century Judy Blume."
Amazon Review, 2011

"When I first heard of a “blog fiction” novel, I immediately thought it would be another IM fluffy rom-com, like TTYL by Lauren Myracle. But [Ms. Scott captures] perfectly the John Hughes-like angst every teenager goes through like any real teenager would — through the internet."
Review @ Opinionated? Me?

"Though this book is far different from the fluffy Twilight series, don’t be surprised if Jess C Scott’s books spark the next reading revolution. Scott’s original voice and style don’t just tell a story, they tell the way of teenage life."
– YA Author, Kasey Dallman, May 30, 2010

"…Jade is not infuriatingly self-deprecating the way Bella Swan (main character from Twilight) is, among many other differences. She's got confidence, and it's refreshing to read a book about a girl who actually thinks she's got a good body. I think that's so important."
UnlikelyAristotle, August 2009

"I started reading 'EyeLeash' last night and didn't get around to [some stuff I had to see to]. Got too 'into' the book. I love the energy of it, it sweeps the reader along."
– Award-winning author, Kate Walker, 2012

Hey Novan :) I was thinking abt what you said. Since you asked for it, I’m sending you a copy of my personal blog. I know I said I didn’t blog, but I do — just that it’s a private one. So it’s very personal. Rants raves and everything else.

I guess you’ll learn quite a lot about me, so it’s quite a big risk I’m taking. I mean I understand if you never want to speak to me or see my face again after this. But if anything’s going to happen, this is what/who I really am…so if I don’t hear from you, I’ll know it was a mistake.

I’d just like to request that you respect my privacy and not let anyone else know about this blog of mine. I believe I can trust you with that. All said, attachment is with this e-mail.


P.S: I stole your poem’s titles for the attachment. Hope you don’t mind.



Monday, January 2, 2006 – 11.11am is evil. I think I have to spend more time with my real-life friendships. Simple as that.

Writing online testimonials and comments for people is stupid.

No one being able to figure out that “you’re” is different from “your” is stupid.

Blogging awful poetry, daily events nobody really cares about, or ceaselessly complaining/rambling on the same old things, is stupid.

Now I blog too, but this is a private one. Unsearchable on Google, and password-enabled. So it’s just me. I can be as boring and mundane as I like, talk to myself if everyone online has the (Away) or (Busy) sign on, and not worry about stepping on anybody’s toes.

Let’s see what I’ll record here over this year.

+ Here's an excerpt of the first IM chat in EyeLeash: A Blog Novel.
