The novelist hard at work
Jinxx lives the quiet life of a typical handicapped math genius until she accidentally causes a miracle.
It wasn’t one bit her fault, either! She was just trying to save brother and herself from the lynch mob they stumbled across. She didn’t mean to cast a light so bright it blinded everyone for leagues, she was just frightened. After the massacre at the Trade Faire and the shooting of the Striver girl, it was hard not to be afraid. It didn’t matter what she intended to do, though. The pilgrims, clerics and soldiers came and her mentor, Mr. Osmacadía, stopped letting her study whatever she wanted so she could learn how to control her spells. Everybody wanted to control her.
Now Jinxx has to worry about spies, the horrible Colonel Ugostugu, the nice but tricky high clerics, all of them trying to use her. Worse, Mr. Osmacadía is talking of disappearing and everyone is threatening to kill her brothers if she doesn’t cooperate. Broken girls aren’t supposed to save the world and Jinxx isn’t sure that being smart is enough.
About London Crockett
London retains a day job that has nothing to do with writing, but has written a previous (unpublished) novel and published several short stories for a now defunct website. London cares deeply about typography (see day job), tries to eat organic, healthy food, cycles, obsessively collects and listens to quality tunage of the obscure varietals and reads mostly things unrelated to The Forty-seven Words of the Broken Girl or Jinxx Relinkerys.
