    My name is Nota. I am an astrologer at Elsaelsa.com

    I saw you on late night republic recently and thought “I’ve GOT to see her chart!” I would love to write an article about you for our blog.

    If that interests you, please let me know. notatirem@gmail.com

    I already have a rough chart drawn up for you based on information from the fan site you have linked on your blog. If I had a birth time that would make it more accurate.

    I will not share any of your personal information on the blog. All I would include would be a picture of your birthchart with a quick personality profile.

    If this is not something you would like to take part in, I completely understand.

    I hope to hear from you. 🙂

    You can find me on twitter @NotaTirem

    Hello Rev Jen.
    Just stumbled across your videos on You Tube. And then found out that you wrote a book about an Elf. Just wanted to share my book about Vampires who save Christmas. Enjoy.

    Reverend Jen – would it be possible for you to send me an email? I’m wanting to ask permission to use a short passage from one of your titles in a project I’m currently working on.

    YOU ROCK!!!
    I discovered your book on the nett a while back and decided to give it a shot…since than I read it twice, got your other book and I am gearing up to get the DVD’s (gearing up, since I am still relishing the stories I read and imagining things my way).
    Reading your stories is refreshing, inspirational (even though some of them are insane) and super fun. They remind me so much of hanging out with my friends in the 90’s and early 2000.
    Before the everybody is always connected time. ….
    Anyway, just wanted to say, hello and thanks for being you!!
