Shelagh: Please tell us about Porcelain.
Jess: Porcelain showcases the variety of styles and genres I’ve written over the past decade or so. It offers a personal draft of my navigation through a world that is fantastical, offbeat, ironic, unexpected, and true. It’s also available as a free ebook/PDF download via my website. 😉
Shelagh: What are some of the genres you write? Do you have a favourite?
Jess: I’ve written (and am not limited to) the following—contemporary fiction, new media (my first book was/is a blog/IM novel), paranormal romance, erotic fiction, YA fiction, poetry, urban fantasy, offbeat fiction, GLBT…I don’t think I have a favourite. I go with the style/medium which suits whatever there is to tell.

Shelagh: Share the best review (or a portion) that you’ve had.
Jess: Review Excerpt of The Devilin Fey:
[The Devilin Fey] was erotic without being pornographic, emotional without being sappy, spiritual without being preachy…just enjoyable reading. Kudos to Jess Scott.” — Paul G. / Amazon review, July 2010
Review Excerpt of Porcelain: “Jess C Scott is a prolific writer…her potential is immense.” — LibraryThing.com review
Shealgh: What is your definition of “good writing”?
Jess: Something that rings true, that people can identify with.
Shelagh: What are your current projects?
Jess: I’ve a contemporary “seven deadly sins” series, an urban fantasy series, and a dark urban fantasy series which I’ve been contemplating on. Need to do lots of planning (along with my summer/fall 2010 university courses!).
