Author’s Note: “This is a mini collection of short essays on arts, culture, society, and my resistance towards commodity production and 100%-commercialization. Nothing annoys me more than a shallow, obsessive, dangerous, unequal ‘romance’ that’s actually based on lust or physical attraction, a romance that is portrayed as the ideal.
This is a theme that has become very popular in mainstream/commercial YA fiction (mostly due to the commercial success of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga). This is precisely why one of the genres I work in is Young Adult Fiction.
I am open-minded and enjoy hearing different perspectives. Feel free to email me (missfeyATgmailDOTcom) anytime if you’d like to share your thoughts :)”
