REVIEWS:

"This was one of those short but intense stories that illustrates what erotica can be. Yes, there was sex in it (including a pretty intense knife-play scene), but it was really about two friends struggling to find each other and being honest about their feelings. It's also about staying true to oneself, about music."
— Vixenne, Nov 2011 (4-Star Review)

"Jess C Scott is the 21st century Judy Blume."
Amazon Review on EyeLeash: A Blog Novel (from U.S.)

"I'm a hetero guy and the Yin and Julian thing (in 4:Play) even 'did something' for me. . .all things kinky and morally objectionable, I'm game. LOL."
-- DE, Reader/Customer email, Jan 2012

EXCERPT #1 (work-in-progress):

Hideki raised the blindfold over Daniel's eyes.

Hideki was in the thigh-high boots he was wearing earlier, but in a short leather skirt this time, which ended just above the top of the black leather boots.

Daniel felt a warmth in his heart--Hideki was a marvellous sight to behold, breathtaking as ever. But Daniel inched back, throat tight, when he saw the knife in Hideki's hand. It was a medium-sized knife.

But even a small blade could cut deep.

Hey Daniel,

Thanks for your kind comments and words of sanity. I mean I guess I just don't know why I can't be like everybody else, you know, and I mean everyone in all types of creative industries (music, writing, design, fashion, etc).

Gone are the days where people could actually tell good shit from bad shit--no wait, I'm not too sure, maybe people could never really tell the difference. As in, there'll only be a small number of really thoughtful and discerning people who want something more in life, apart from something 'pop' and 'fluff' and mindlessly entertaining.

Do you know why there are so many obese people in the world right now (apart from the prevalence of fast food?)--one need only look at the ancient scriptures of India, such as the following:

An Ayurvedic text comments: "Boredom, mindless entertainment, continuous eating, and oversleeping: these will fatten you up just like a hog."

I hate commercialism. It makes me very tired. I think I'm only going to be buying CDs of dead rockstars from now. A few notable exceptions regarding still-living artistes, which I will check out *when I happen to do so*.

I guess I should've known. I know I should not begrudge other people's success. I know that there's a market for everything. It's more an overall feeling of genuine disgust and frustration.

I guess the question is: why bother to work hard? Why bother to hone your talents? Why bother to be anything, if you can make millions from unoriginal work that's easily digestible, and just as easily disposable (but who care$, coz you already made the million$!!!)?

BUT I guess if I can slowly work on it…have a day job to survive, while I continue to explore the art/music in a way that I want…I won't complain, coz it's just two different camps. The commercial side can roll around and continue to pander crap to the lowest common denominator as they rush to meet their bottom line/net profits..........people like me can choose to sit it out, and not play the game at all.

You don't have to buy into it, if you don't want to. At the end of the day, I still want to be able to have my own life.

I'm not blessed enough to be illiterate/ignorant. I'm not blessed enough to be able to sell my soul and/or artistic integrity, for hordes of quick cash. I'm not blessed enough to ride on the commercial success of a trend or fad that's hot for that day, or week, or year, or whatever.

But I'm blessed enough to have people like you as friends.

Ok thanks for listening to all my nonsensical garbage again…

~ Hideki.

A NOTE ABOUT THE OLD COVER...

I mistakenly used this image for the original cover as it turned up under a search for CC licensed images (when it's actually not CC licensed). Oops!

This is a photograph of two Asian ball-jointed dolls [Jun, the pink and white haired doll, and Zephyr, the blonde doll, who belongs to the owner's close friend]. They are characters in their own stories that have been ongoing for over 10 years.
