“We are truly over-the-moon to sign Chris Kassel,” said Corron Power. “I knew he was a gifted writer, because I religiously read his on-line column, and have a number of his books,” she said. “But The Jinx Fragment blew me away! Chris has a marvelous way of telling a story: You feel as if you are sitting on the porch listening to him. You can see the characters, hear the sounds, and breathe in the environment — as if you are right in the thick of it. Combine that with illustrations from his son Jesse who is equally gifted? It’s a prodigious synergy.”
Set amid the decay and decadence of urban Detroit, The Jinx Fragment borrows elements from classic horror and places them in the hands of a couple of high-school aged teenagers from different backgrounds. While penned for young people, Kassel’s latest novel also appeals to adults. It is smartly written with an eye toward the reader who loves characters, words and “other worlds” where Kassel says, “The supernatural becomes the natural.”
Said Chris Kassel of the venture, “I can recall only handful of truly standout moments in my thirty years as an author: The publication of my first novel, the purchase of my first computer—when they were still known as ‘word processors’—and meeting Amy Corron Power. Her ability to critique, promote and infuse projects with a sense of excitement that is virtually irresistible to the readership is unique among anyone I’ve worked with. Frankly, I can’t envision a future writing books that succeed without her in my corner.”
