Publisher info

Jason P. Crawford was born in Louisiana in 1981. His writing career began in 2012, when he sat down for some “writing time” with his wife and sister-in-law. He has always been fascinated by the magic in the real world, leading him to focus most of his efforts on urban fantasy and science fiction.

In addition to publishing his own work, he has spent time as a freelance writer, preparing articles and ghost-writing for others. In addition to Chains of Prophecy, Jason has completed The Drifter, a story about gods walking in the world of men, as well as Dragon Princess, describing the Princess Amalia Therald’s true heritage and her struggles to live up to it. His life as a husband, father, and teacher (as well as hardcore gamer) have opened up and nurtured a wealth of imagination and given Jason a tendency to flights of fancy, and those flights give rise to his work.

Smashwords book reviews by Jason P. Crawford

  • Seer's Hope (Book One of The Seer Trilogy) on June 14, 2013

    I rate this book 4.9/5. Here is my breakdown: Characters:5/5. Maree has created and juggled a diverse cast of characters with skill and aplomb. The people in this book are relatable, understandable, and believable. She does a particularly good job at helping the audience understand the frustrations of being blind in the situations Hope finds herself in. Story: 5/5. I settled comfortably into the tone of an epic fantasy, but Maree runs with her characters to make a story all her own. I felt almost no sense of the dreaded deus ex machina; the plot evolved naturally and organically. Well done! Style: 5/5 - this is a hard category for me as I generally only notice writing style if it brings me out of the story; nevertheless, I was pleased by the descriptions and verisimilitude in this story. I particularly enjoyed the depictions of Hope's experiences as a blind woman; it was very well done. Grammar/spelling 4.9/5. Overall fantastic, but I did note a few missing words (often linking verbs). Still better than many novels I have enjoyed. Overall - thank you for a fantastic read. I loved walking with the Dayamari, with Hope and Blayne and Willem and Maya and the rest, and I look forward to rejoining them. Thanks again!
  • A Tale of Two Djinns on July 07, 2013

    I rate this novella a 4.5/5. Here is my breakdown: Characters: 5/5. The characters in Tale are rich and well developed. A novella offers less space for character development than a full novel, but you would never know that from reading this book. Both Mara and Shay are detailed, real people who I could imagine seeing in real life or a fantastically cast film. Motivations and depth abound, even in the background cast. Well done! Plot/Storyline: 4.5/5. This novella is a paranormal romance with a decent level of "heat." While the love scenes are well written and not so graphic as to turn me away from the book, the storyline would have functioned just fine without them. Khan kept me guessing the whole time, and the final reveal of the true villain came as a complete surprise! Flow: 5/5. There was nothing in this story which interrupted my enjoyment in any way. Descriptions were effective without being overbearing, the change in perspectives was handled well from one character to the next, and the story just generally went, just like it should. Spelling/Grammar: 5/5. I don't recall any spelling or grammar mistakes in this story, so, congratulations and huzzah! Overall: 4.5/5. This book had me from the beginning fight scene and kept me through the end. I read it in about an hour and a half, so it's a fast read, but well worth it! I've been thinking more and more about writing a genie story myself .> Jason P.
