Jess addresses a variety of interview/article topics, including:
* Balancing Art and Commerce
"Hi there. I heard a friend of mine bring up your name over Christmas
and she told me I needed to read your books. Thanks so much and I look
forward to hopefully hearing back from you!"
"Thank you so much for writing EyeLeash:
A Blog Novel. I could totally relate to Jade, sadly my Novan
wasn’t right for me. Can’t wait to read your other books :)"
"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.
"[Jess's writing is] raw sometimes and a little rough around the
edges, but it’s full of brio. It’s very contemporary. It has personality
and energy. It deals with modern issues in a very modern way."
"You have a great web page layout and smokin' work. I have a few
of your pieces on my Nook and I caught my husband reading them the other
day. He does not usually like erotica but did yours. He is very conservitive,
on the outside. He is slowly changing I think."
"Based on the three books I've read, I can say that you're a brilliant
writer. They are not shallow reads. Your books do not only entertain
but they also make you reflect on what is really important in one's
"[Jess C Scott] has a voice that should be heard."
"You know I love your work! =)"
"I have to honestly say I was pleasantly surprised by The
Other Side of Life. Not only was it extremely well edited,
but the plot was more well written than some house published books I’ve
read. Truly, this was an incredible fantasy novel and a series I’m hoping
Jess C Scott keeps up with, because she’s obviously extremely talented."
"...it's one thing to learn about your woman's past,
and it's quite another to be put right there. I had to rush
through the last ten pages like they were on fire. It was one hell of
an experience. I love you regardless."
"Please write more about Singapore's
politics. We need more independent minds that dare to write."
