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

“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.”
— e-mail from a reader, 2010


White lilies, the flowers of death, that had surrounded Kurt Cobain on stage along with flickering candles during Nirvana’s final MTV Unplugged acoustic concert—images of this flower took over Nathan’s mind as he made his way down the street to Maya’s apartment. He grabbed the flowers from a florist shop nearby, at the last minute, to present to Maya when he saw her. She liked stargazer lilies anyway.
