Author/Publisher Testimonials for Jason's Work
"Hey Jason, I just finished listening to it for the second time, and while I've already given feedback on what a marvelous job you have done in the narration, I need to push that a little further. In particular, you took the climax, Chapter 35 (which admittedly displays remarkably fine writing!) and you turned it into something way beyond fine.....let's say "stupendous." Your dramatic reading, pacing, emotion, skill with the accents, etc. etc. and etc. are absolutely eye-watering. I was pacing my back deck and almost jumping up and down with excitement while listening (good thing it was dark and no one saw me). I forgot that I was the writer and I forgot that I knew what was going to happen while listening to your incredible interpretation. It's hard for me to express how pleased I am with your outstanding execution. I wouldn't trade you for Laurence Olivier himself."
Steven E. Maffeo, Author of "The Russian Who Saved the World"
" Jason, thanks much for all your good work. My wife and I went to Fayetteville this weekend, and on the drive back we listened to your performance. My wife really liked it -- and she can be picky when it comes to stuff like that. We really enjoyed listening to the book (all the better since the Razorbacks won the game!). Thanks much for your professionalism. I'll certainly keep you in mind for any future projects."

"Mr. Markiewitz narrated a book for me called The First Consulting Detective, a short set of three stories. Jason did a wonderful job and I was very pleased with the finished result. His accents were spot on, and the range of accents brought the story to life. As a work partner, he was quick, efficient and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend him and would definitely work with him again in the future."
Tracy Traynor, Publisher of "The First Consulting Detective"
"Working with Jason Markiewitz on my book "The Walking Y" was an absolute pleasure. It was a team effort, and we reviewed and approved chapters very quickly. Jason brought my characters to life in a fashion that exceeded my expectations. These characters required him to credibly switch from young teenage girls and boys to gruff adults or an Irish immigrant to a polished politician, and he held true to those voices all the way through the book. We had an open dialog that enabled us to stick to the timeline with minimal corrections with the highest quality end product. I am seeking to create more time so that I can finish my next book to - again with pleasure - work with Jason. I know other authors who were not so fortunate in bringing their books to narrators; however, I can state that Jason is a true professional, and I very highly recommend him."
