Teaser


“These are for the exchange students.” The young woman turned her face toward Daphne, and removed her sunglasses.

Her eyes were completely white.

Daphne gasped and held her hand over her mouth; the corner of the other girl’s mouth lifted upward at the sound.

“You thought I was blind.” Cassandra sighed.


 

My Opinion

This story introduces you to Daphne Gianakos, new student at the University of Florida. Her strange dreams, weird fellow student Cassandra and a mysterious stranger hamper her getting accustomed to her new environment. I cannot tell you more about the story as it would spoil the fun of reading it yourself.

With Seeking the Sun, Jason P. Crawford presents us with an intriguing fantasy story, weaving myth and present charmingly. This story is well elaborated, has a pleasant flow, focuses on the story, disclosing more and more information about its protagonists. Jason P. Crawford describes his characters’ looks in not too much detail, their personalities are more important – you can imagine them pretty well. I was a close observer, following the protagonists and the events. I could easily envision the characters and locations. I had a good time reading Seeking the Sun. It is a fast and entertaining read.

 

About the author

Jason Patrick Crawford is a 33-year-old high school science teacher and father of three children who came into writing at the urging of his family. He discovered a primal joy in the act of creation that he had never experienced before. He has also learned of the amazing community of authors he has joined and is proud to be counted among their ranks.

Jason’s first published work, Chains of Prophecy, is available in most e-book formats. He had the idea for this novel several years ago when he was getting his teaching credential, but had no idea at the time how to make it work. His inspiration for his writing practices is the great Stephen King; his memoir On Writing was an amazing resource and really helped jump-start Jason’s work.

Please take a look at my statement on reading in My train of thoughts on …reading.  Now I am asking you.  🙂

My questions for you bibliophiles:
What about you?  What did you think about Seeking the Sun?  Or – if you did not yet read Seeking the Sun – are you now interested in reading it yourself?

My question for you cinephiles:
If Seeking the Sun was filmed – who should direct it, who could you imagine as actors?

I am looking forward to reading your comments.  🙂
