Praise for Jess C Scott
“[Please] keep up the good work . . . the world can certainly use some more authentic, original work like yours, rather than the same old re-packaged mass-market pulp.”
— TGirl Revelations / Bibrary.com, October 2010
“You pack huge volumes of experience and information into your [work]. You’re impressive, I’ll say that, and edgy and interesting. And mildly scary.”
— T. D. / via e-mail, 2010

Excerpt from EyeLeash: A Blog Novel
EyeLeash is my debut, 65,000-word blog/IM novel—a coming-of-age story set in the digital era. It's more raw and ‘uncensored’ than most mainstream books, but I felt that was what would allow the characters to be believable and relatable.
Summary: 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.

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.
