"I read (Jack in the Box), which I loved. I am looking forward to the other stories. You are not obscene as far as I can see. You write about emotion and you capture it and convey it beautifully. You have something very original and very contemporary."

She felt the cold blast from the sterile air conditioning on her bare arms and thighs, as she ambled down the center of the shopping complex's ground floor. The scene was a swirl of candy bright lights--the Victoria's Secret fuchsia signboard, signboards which lured one to purchase "confidence," or "sexual appeal," or whatever it was that was being advertised--the fluorescent lights in each store, contrasting with the shiny, black-tiled walls and eye-catching speckled marble tiles on the ground.
One could lick the floor--the tiles were spotless, clean like the fake air she was breathing in, like the atoms and cells in her that were decaying in stale neglect.
Jess C Scott is an author/artist/non-conformist. She writes in a diverse range of genres and is a socio-political blogger.
Her erotic fiction has been described as "provocative" and "thoughtful" by discerning readers seeking more than a collection of pornographic sex scenes when it comes to erotica. Jess is interested in passion/intensity/intimacy, and firmly believes there is more to the erotic life than explicitness.
Jess is the founder of jessINK, an innovative publishing company that focuses on meaningful entertainment.
