THE LOST TRAIN Anthology is coming soon. Release is September 1st. But you can hop on board here at FVP’s website in the next weeks to learn more about the Authors and Artists that were paired to create works for the project.
Tommia Wright Madison Wachter
Tommia Wright is a FVP Featured Author, and she was paired with Madison Wachter. Madison painted independently, but added some stars and moon phases in response to requested elements to relate to Tommia’s short story. Both their works will be in the Anthology, but here’s a peek at some of Madison’s paintings and a snippet of Tommia’s Anthology story. Be sure to follow their links to more…

A remarkable coffee shop turned intergalactic train, offers escape from a dystopic earth. An eclectic mix of vibrant souls seek tracks to a more hopeful future on THE L.O.S.T. TRAIN. By Tommia Wright * Paired Artist: Madison Wachter
Snippet from “THE L.O.S.T. TRAIN: An Unexpected Journey” by Tommia Wright:
When Andy strolled by, Roberta frowned and tried again. “What’s going on and who exactly are you?”
“I told you. Andy Colleagues. Consider me your guide, storyteller, translator, mate, and for the moment,” he smiled as his hands rushed over a series of levers and buttons behind the counter, “mini-conductor.” Looking behind her, she saw all the new arrivals sitting in booths that weren’t there before, and the door to the street had vanished.
Andy came around the counter and handed her a fresh cup of tea. Welcome to the L.O.S.T. Train. Well, the Galaxy Lounge until your sleeper is ready.”
Roberta wondered if she should have something stronger to drink. “I think one of us has lost their mind.”
Andy’s shoulders fell. “Oh dear. Rather fumbling through this again, aren’t I. The L.O.S.T. Train is for Liberation of Stranded Travelers. That would be you and many of your lot here. And before I forget, in case anything should happen, here is your Whistler’s Walker and Lean-Tow.” Read more…

Thanks, Mari! 🙂
Thank you, Mari!
I love the way that authors were paired with artists. Beautiful work from Madison, and congrats to Tommia on the coming release.
Thanks! It was fun to work together and discover each other’s work. When I wrote the post about Madison I looked through her website, rather than just seeing the piece that is published, and was amazed at the beauty of her body of work. The piece in the book is lovely too. It was so kind of her to contribute it to support the project and North Bend Art & Industry. The original pieces that are pictured in the Anthology have been donated by the artists for NBA&I’s fundraising auction.
I love it when artists collaborate. There’s so much opportunity to be creative and think outside the box. 🙂
