Jessa Callaver

Biography

Jessa Callaver is a novice American fiction writer. She has published four erotic short stories, and is currently in work on a number of projects including a contemporary romance novel - her first.

The guiding influence behind her work has been the question 'what if?' After that, all bets are off and fantasy reigns supreme. You will no doubt find smart wistful female protagonists in her books; women in different stages of life, of different dispositions and design, women seeking answers both within and without. And, being a woman of curious disposition herself, you should expect nothing short of a bumpy ride.

Her work is available online at Barnes & Noble, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Diesel, Apple and Sony e-bookstores.

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords has been seminal. I honestly cannot say that enough. I came here as a new writer who had never formally published anything, on- or offline, seeking authorship and with no idea as to how to begin. Within weeks, I'd learned how to format, proof, select and upload cover images, and as on my way to having my work distributed to well-known and respected e-bookstores. For those of us starting out without agents and publishing houses behind us, that's just a huge accomplishment in and of itself. And thanks to SW offering a wealth instructions, accessible and available support contacts, style guides and just all-around assistance to help navigate through not just the site but through self-publishing, it's not impossible. That was what I found when I came here and what keeps me coming back. Smashwords helps keep you informed and updated as a writer, author, reader, self-publisher, and part of the indie e-community. Even when I didn't know what the heck I was doing, SW and the resources it provides, made me feel as if I could still do it, on my own and be successful. And it remains a good resource. However 'paid advertisement' it might sound, I'm truly grateful to have stumbled across this site and to have had it as my launching pad.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Just being able to let go while, ideally, touching other readers with what has touched you. To have an idea that percolated in your head come to full form, often not knowing where it will lead or where and how the story will end is a true gift. As stressful as it can be, writing is also a release. It gives my conscious and subconscious mind a voice, for better of for worse lol And to be able to share tiny pieces of myself, my mind, my creativity, my heart with other readers and book lovers, hearing people connect with and find entertainment in what I've written, that's where the true joy lies - in the mutual 'you too?', that moment of a shared escape enjoyed by us both. Nothing like it.

  • If It Isn't Love? on Dec. 29, 2011

    Funny, cute, humorous and original one-liner after one-liner AND a hot sex scene to boot. Now if only we could use this as a sort of instructional for men struggling with the same affliction as Derek. lol A Great read!
  • Cherry on Jan. 16, 2012

    A near perfect piece of erotica. Loved the language, the dialogue, the action. Only wish it had been a bit longer - that we hadn't left them so soon.
  • My Sexy Man on Jan. 28, 2012

    Very cute short. Quirky, clever, curt yet complete, with a nice dose of linguistic titillation.
  • Rook: Allie's War Episodes 1-4 on Feb. 27, 2012

    Redfield meets Tolle meets "The Matrix" and "Star Wars" - those were my initial thoughts and impressions of Book One of Rook: Allie's War. Perhaps in part because as I read I realized how visually stunning this book could be as a film. Taking us years into the future, we first meet our heroine, one Alyson Taylor, staring down the barrel of policemen's guns, a shard of glass fashioned as a weapon in one hand. From there, both she and the reader are forced to abandon all concepts of reality as they descend into a deeply complex, deeply controlled, internally-at-war society where factions of hyper-conscious creatures called 'seers' look to use Allie to shape the face of humanity. With our protagonist, we're pulled between worlds, countries, languages, space and time, delving into layers upon layers of the Seer culture. Though the reading trod rather heavily in the beginning, with some well-written yet onerous 'galactic prose,' once the story begins picking up speed, it never stops. Despite all comparisons, Rook made for in fact a unique story, with original twists and turns, and language that could, at times, be described as poetic and lyrical. This is a book for sci-fi fans of all dispositions and a journey for which I'm happy to have climbed on board. An intriguing and definitely recommended read.
  • Shield: Allie's War Episodes 5-8 on March 06, 2012

    A worthy sequel to "Rook," Andrijeski's vivid descriptive language take us back into a world of human-Seer conflict, where one woman holds the key to inter-species transformation. In "Shield," we find Allie, known among Seers simply as, the Bridge, coming to terms with her existence, trying to understand and prepare for a destiny she hardly grasps or believes in, and in the midst of it all, attempting to mend the wounds of a troubled relationship with her Seer mate, ex-traitor, Dehgoies Revik. And from there, things slowly but devastatingly fall apart and the reader is steeped ever deeper into the building storm and a world on the brink. The intricacies of this future are spell-binding, mind-boggling, so seamlessly elaborate at times you find your imagination panting to keep up with the scenes and images Andrijeski creates. A real pageturner and a book that ended far too soon. An EASY and ENTHUSIASTIC 5-sar review! J.C. Andrijeski's the real deal.
  • Shaken and Stirred on March 06, 2012

    Sable Jordan's writing shines brightly in "Shaken and Stirred." A Beautiful work.
  • Wallbanger on March 11, 2012

    Another exciting installment in the Kizzie Baldwin series. In "Wallbanger," we find our heroine, Kizzie, forcibly thrown into an uneasy partnership with our favorite crafty villain, Xander Duquesne. Together they seek to fulfill their individual (often opposing) missions while trying to keep a dangerous secret weapon out of the hands of a murderous madman - all the while struggling to keep THEIR hands to themselves. This sexy thriller will leave you panting, on edge and hungry for more. I love Sable's writing style, easy sense of humor, strong female protagonists, expertly-crafted and unpredictable story lines and this book beautifully showcases all of those facets of her talent. Can't wait for the next book!
  • Sword: Allie's War Episodes 9-12 on March 24, 2012

    Another thrilling ride with an ending you will never see coming. I'm on Book III and can't help but feel as if I've hardly delved into this story; as if, however good, the best may be yet to come in this series! In this installment we see our protagonist, Alyson, confronted with the violence and brutality of the human-seer war. Thrust into this confusing and never clear-cut reality, she is forced to make a decision between her beliefs and her loyalty to the man - now the man AND the boy - who holds her heart; to maneuver between what is right and what is wrong as the lines grow ever-blurrier around her. A thrilling read and a cliffhanger if there ever was one. Can't wait to see what happens next!! Kickbutt series!
  • Fire on The Beach on March 28, 2012

    A sweet sensual romp. Wish it had been longer and there had been more context given re: their friendship-relationship before this point.
  • Banging In The New Year on March 30, 2012

    Some typos but otherwise a nicely written quickie. :)
  • Stewardess on April 24, 2012
    (no rating)
    The writer gives an original tone and feel to the male Dom female sub story. Thoughtful, titillating and well written overall.
  • My Hubby Made Me an Internet Whore on May 16, 2012

    Sexually, a tad overwhelming for me personally (not into gangbang scenes), but there's nothing like a true writer and a well-written story. (Minimal typos/errors)
  • In the Seminary Library, an Artistic Seduction on May 19, 2012

    A sensual homage to lady lovers of libraries and our fantasies of what might occur amidst the stacks. A valiant effort, I only wish there'd been more to the story and an ending that didn't feel so abrupt and incomplete.
  • The Fake Husband on May 20, 2012
    (no rating)
    Wonderfully written and sensual. Nice work.
  • Molly's Lips: Club Mephisto Retold on May 22, 2012

    The harsh BDSM scenes were a bit too much for me at times (not a BDSM reader in general). But the writing and storyline were so original I had to give this 5 stars - even with not having read "Club Mephisto." I just enjoyed the complexity of Mephisto and Molly's relationship and, again, of the tale itself.
  • Shadow: Allie's War Episodes 13-17 on June 05, 2012

    *SPOILER ALERT* Another exciting volume in the Allie's War series. In "Shadow" the reader is allowed a deeper look into our broken hero, Revik's, mind and past, as what is left of the Seven attempt to break his light from the parlous clutches of Salinse and the Dreng. A slight departure in style from the previous books, Book IV is a strong follow-up to Book III in both voice and in its nuanced introduction of 'the Shadow,' an ominous new menace in possession of a bio-chemical threat that could end both human- and Seerkind. As ever, there is vivid imagery, unpredictable twists and turns, and a seat- and mind-gripping ending that will leave you running to pick up the next installment. A recommended read!
  • Hot Proposition on June 07, 2012

    great read!
  • Thomas on June 19, 2012

    True erotica, in every sense.
  • Office Romp on June 22, 2012

    Didn't do it for me. Too left foot right foot in the descriptions; and once the sex began....not enough smooth flow to the sex in particular and writing overall. Would have liked more dialogue as well, perhaps to help spice up the moments. Just my feeling on it. Good premise though. Keep at it!
  • Bound by Night on July 06, 2012

    Beauuutiful tale, beautifully written. Only wish I'd be allowed to know more about what Daghan was.
  • Yes, Dear Master: Volume 1 on July 12, 2012

    A hot and steamy start. I did feel that some of the descriptions of Mr. Davis and what kind of man he was could have been pruned a bit and I would've liked to have known more what incited her to dress more provocatively. Really liked the originality of what you told us of our female protag. Just one reader's two cents.
  • Hidden on July 28, 2012

    3 & 1/2 stars. Great cover. Not much description and the story IMO pushed the suspension of disbelief a bit but a sexy first installment.
  • Perfect Strangers on July 28, 2012

    Would have liked more backstory but otherwise a sexy romp. (3 & 1/2 stars)
  • The Druid Series 1: Reapers on Aug. 18, 2012

    Was quickly drawn in by this read without the text impeding the entertainment or the read. Very fast pace. Though some of the scenes were a bit too graphic for my taste (i.e. the 'double rape' scene), the dialogue was a bit drab and certain words felt overused, overall, I'd say the author has a genuinely addicting series here. I hope it gets the readers it deserves!
  • Touched on Nov. 01, 2012

    **3.5 STARS** I would've have HAPPILY given this book 4 & 1/2 stars if it weren't for the consistent errors, missing words and misspellings throughout the text. The style and voice were unique, the story captivating and though we didn't get to really visualize the characters' aesthetics, well, we didn't need those details as they were complex enough without a face. Nicely layered. Great story.
  • Knight: Allie's War Episodes 18-23 on Nov. 17, 2012

    Another exciting installment! Can't wait for the next chapter!
  • Obsessed, Possessed on Dec. 04, 2012

    Loved the language. Loved the read. Can't wait til Book II.
  • A Different Kind of Fairy Tale on Jan. 03, 2013

    4 &1/2 STARS Engrossing all the way through. Great twists and turns, natural dialogue. Some typos throughout, but they didn't throw off the story too much. Good read!
  • The Wild One on Jan. 19, 2013

    **4.5 Stars** Ms. Harmon has earned a new fan. Her proficiency with plot twists and turns, attention to detail down to the blade of grass and mortar block is stunning. An exciting tale and enjoyable ride. Will certainly be reading more of her work!
  • Trapped in Amber on March 06, 2013

    Nicely weaved.
  • The Culling (Alien Apocalypse Part I) on March 16, 2013

    This was an intense read. I am always blown away and entirely amazed with Andrijeski's ability to describe a world of her own making - to pull the reader into every fiber, fabric and frown, to have you sensing every molecule, trudging through every hard-walked bend in the road, right along with the characters she creates. And "The Culling" was no different. Dropping you into the thick it from page one, Andrijeski takes no mercy on her characters and I admire her for that. It helps craft the exciting story, nail-biting scenes and vivid atmosphere you find in her books. Another lustrous offering! ****4 Stars*
  • The New Order (Alien Apocalypse Part III) on March 20, 2013

    Twist, turns, entirely unforeseen upheaval. I actually found myself hiding my eyes behind my hands at times in the middle of the scene. lol An intense and exciting chapter and I can't wait until volume IV.
  • Sexy Vignette: Love and Sex on March 21, 2013
    (no rating)
    Sadly, I think too many girls' first times go down somewhat like this. Nice recreation.
  • Stray on March 29, 2013
    (no rating)
    I liked the unpredictability in this short, though a little confusing in spots. The dialogue felt too rushed at times and the way the character spoke came off as formal in some places, but I liked the messiness. Liked us being dropped into this woman's world and just taking the ride with her, with, as in life, no guarantee for a happy ending - even for the deserving. My only real problem was Jane coming across like a doormat. Of course, not every woman is meant to be her own heroine.
  • A Bride of Stone on March 31, 2013

    Now that's good erotica!
  • Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center on April 24, 2013

    A thoroughly entertaining, well-written, sizziling page-turner. Hot, steamy and palatable even for those like myself who aren't ardent fans of the BDSM lit-erotic genre. Exciting scenes, unique twists and turns, a great read 'til the end. Though the affinity the female protagonist, Brie, enjoyed from her 'supporting cast' seemed a bit over the top at times, I liked what this author did; making the BDSM world her own while still maintaining the basic foundation and authenticity of the realm. Well done, Red!
  • The Color of Lies on May 21, 2013

    This was an exciting read from start to finish! Loved the characters - Sarai, Brooklyn, Oscar - and am Anxiously awaiting a sequel!!
  • Outsourced on June 15, 2013

    Sexy smart and sensual. Very nice.
  • Ultimatum (The Devil's Kiss #1) on July 12, 2013

    Well-written, original in its BDSM storyline, told in achingly descriptive detail, a female protagonist you could identify and sympathize with... Great short!
  • Britannia: Book One on July 21, 2013

    **4.5 Stars** What serendipity in my having stumbled upon this series. I love the way the author can draw you in the world she so carefully creates. The lush language--every sentence flowed like prose--the multi-faceted characters and engrossing storyline. Such a wonderfully rich creation, this tale. Cannot wait to read Book II!
  • War: Allie's War Episodes 24-27 on Aug. 11, 2013

    Another riveting ride and a dramatic, cliffhanger end that will make your jaw drop. Well done, JC.
  • Sake Bomb on Aug. 11, 2013

    I've always loved the easy sophistication of Sable Jordan's writing. The most intricate and web-like plots, the riveting detail, seamlessly smooth twists and turns, all creating a tale that just keeps you guessing and glued to the page--and hot and bothered to boot. Sake Bomb was no different. Loved this volume of the series. An exciting read, a tickle, a tease and well worth the wait. **Highly recommended**
  • Bound By Lies - The Billionaire's Assistant on Oct. 03, 2013
    (no rating)
    First, I found this book by way of a 'BBW' subject search. *This is NOT A BBW book* however and that tag really needs to be removed. I'm all for dominant male protags, the read was clean and the sex was titillating, but for me, the basic storyline just felt too far-fetched to suspend my disbelief.
  • The Date on Nov. 09, 2013
    (no rating)
    I chose this title first based on the BBW ascription and...at first, I was intrigued. Then appalled, curiously titillated, disgusted, sickened, shocked, offended and repulsed. And yet I couldn't stop reading. One minute I thought the story was cruising in one direction, just to be immediately jarred onto an entirely different course. Did not anticipate AT ALL what I got with this one. From the characters to the dialogue to the themes, certainly the most singular erotic title I've read in a long time. Much to be said for that.
  • The Scorpion Series book 2: No Boss on Dec. 01, 2013
    (no rating)
    Visceral, thrilling, prosaic in spots. An addictive series. Just needs a betareader or editor's touch.
