REVIEWS:

"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 you."
-- reader/customer email, 2010

"Ever since I came across Jess C Scott's teenage blog novel, EyeLeash, I've known that some very talented writers will emerge from the epublishing revolution."
-- Joseph Grinton, October 2011

"Just read Real Love Versus Romance...loved the ideas & compilation of ideas...great!! :) i agreed with many of the points of how romance has been commercialized for effect instead of portraying the actual depth of true romance...i roll my eyes at what is considered "love stories" nowadays...even being a guy (haha), i can appreciate a story that portrays real love & shows depth in what romance is (means)..."

EXCERPT [Introduction]:

. . .The impetus for the Bad Romance anthology actually stemmed from the severing of a pseudo-relationship I'd been in for about ten years. I've always found the concept of the "seven deadly sins" intriguing--much more intriguing than the seven heavenly virtues. That being said, I'm currently working on a seven virtues short story collection in order to "cleanse" my mind from the material in Bad Romance.

Bad Romance is pop culture inspired (it's contemporary, realistic, and makes many media references). I've had a longtime interest in pop culture and the mass media. I've always been aware of the massive influence and power of the media, and it's both amazing and troubling to see real values being compromised in the name of commoditization (where literally life and everything is a popularity or hype contest, regardless of any intrinsic merit or a work's true underlying substance). I do find the "sheeple programming" of media conglomerates to be disturbing.

I wove in the theme of "star-crossed lovers" to the stories to keep to the "bad romance" theme. Often, it is the "bad" person in a relationship that drags the other person down with them. . .
