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.

    Nice carryover from the Adon and Simon and Marlie story, Gillian. Definitely a singular offering to the BDSM e-book genre. Interesting character development. Original story-telling. Good detail. The 'proofing' could have been a tad better but otherwise a good read. :]

    Hot hot hot, a good backstory and a nice smoldering build-up.

  • Benect's Mistress on Nov. 16, 2011

    Intriguing little morsel you've composed here. I'd love to see what happens next.
  • All About a Kiss on Dec. 20, 2011

    Wow, brave girl. I liked everything but the ending.
  • Sensual Erotica 4: Deeper, Baby! on Dec. 27, 2011

    Two stories, one hotter than the next. A few typos here an there but the stories weren't thrown off by them. Natural pace and flow and best of all, great dialogue and hot coitus. I'm a fan.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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!
  • 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**
  • 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.
