Jyvur Entropy is an American Horror, Romance, Contemporary and Fantasy author. She is most well-known for Combustion, which premiered on wattpad in 2016. It has since gone on to acquire over 80,000 reads, was longlisted for the 2018 Watty’s, and featured twice by wattpad.
Her fantasy novels include Of Time Storms and Tourniquets and Desire and Destruction. These are both romance-fantasy with a time travel twist.
She also has one contemporary novel, Incel. This is her most controversial work. It was removed from wattpad after one warning to tone down the “offensive content.” Jyvur wants any actual incels who have stumbled across her to know that she means them no harm. Jyvur believes incels aren’t the problem; they are the symptom of a much deeper problem, and that’s why she wants to write about them. The book is currently being uploaded to this blog.
Once a radical feminist who believed the very concept of gender needed to be abolished, Jyvur’s identity politics have taken a drastically more conservative turn in the past few years. She is no longer a feminist, although still sympathetic to some feminist causes, and considers herself friendly to MRA issues, despite it getting her labeled a “pick me.”
She’s always been a bit of an outsider in the indie writing community, with one of her earliest controversies being the push to accept negative reviews from readers as part of the artistic process. A strong proponent of the value of criticism and a firm believer that the author is dead, Jyvur made enemies of several big wattpad writers by urging them to encourage readers to share all thoughts on their books, even unflattering ones.
Despite how edgy she likes to pretend she is, she’s also been lucky enough to make some great indie author friends, and she tries to lift them up and support them whenever she can.
Jyvur has a B.A in Creative Writing and an M.A in English Lit. She hopes one day to be a professor for undergrad studies. Jyvur has worked as a department supervisor for Home Depot, a freelance ghostwriter specializing in memoir, a non-profit blogger, and a developmental editor.
Jyvur was raised in New Jersey, where she had an interesting childhood, to the say the least. Jyvur was raised by a single mother who is a Wiccan, lesbian, feminist, who ran a ceramics company out of the kitchen and managed a sex toys store. Jyvur hopes to one day meet someone who had an even more liberal hippy-dippy childhood than her.
Jyvur loves Die Antwoord, but doesn’t speak enough Afrikaans to sing along to the new House of Zef record.
She wrote this whole page in third person to make it easy for interviewers and media to copy/paste. She says you’re welcome.
