Never trust a demon.

Demon hunter Devon Salomon never expected to break her family’s #1 rule, but five years of servitude to their killers have left her low on options. Her sister is still out there and if she wants to find her, escape is her only option.

Enter Rowan, sinfully attractive demon with his own grudge against the people who enslaved her. He offers her a deal – a chance at freedom and revenge. More importantly, he’ll help Devon find her little sister. Unsure why he would join a demon hunter, and against her training and better judgment, Devon accepts.

While she knows there’s no guarantee her sister still lives, Devon persists against things no human should face. Their hunt unearths secrets affecting both their races, thrusting them into a fight for their lives.

But can she truly trust her newfound companion?

THE LOST TRAIN Anthology is here! Thanks for the great celebration on release day,  September 1st! Now that you’ve seen the wonderful cover artwork, let’s see the full piece and meet the artist behind it…

Minh, aka Minh Ho-Dac Rosen’s painting, Dream Train was chosen for the cover unanimously by the artwork committee on The Lost Train Anthology project. Sheri, the editor and cover designer, worked closely with Minh to combine the bright textural piece with the necessary title elements for a final cover that made them both smile. They were also pleased by the serendipity of Minh’s engine ‘2’ coinciding with FVP’s 2nd Anthology. And the whole group involved in the anthology was delighted with the cover reveal! If you haven’t seen it yet, you can see Minh’s colorful piece, and how it appeared on the anthology’s cover below. And here’s a peek at some of Minh’s other work. Be sure to follow her link to more…

Sheri

Sheri J Kennedy, Editor

The Anthology project brought a talented and prolific group of artists and authors together and provided a chance to work together to send new beauty to the greater community. The result was  incredibly encouraging to all of us who worked on it. Though we were separated physically, we came together online and felt that amazing connection that is so needed right now.

Pepper Allphin -Old Tree 300dpi VERY FINAL

Old Tree – by Pepper Allphin

THE LOST TRAIN Anthology is coming soon. Release is September 1st, and that’s tomorrow! So here’s the last post about the Authors and Artists that were paired to create works for the project…

Sheri J. Kennedy is a FVP Featured Author, and she was paired with Kristin Tetuan. Sheri is also the coordinator and editor for the The Lost Train Anthology project. Sheri and Kristin worked independently due to a tech glitch that kept them from communicating until the final deadline. But coincidentally both of their works were influenced by a Lost Train of Thought, and more specifically by exploration of mental states that lost touch with reality – Sheri’s explored dementia, and Kristin’s detachment from self. Both their works will be in the Anthology, but here’s a peek at some of Kristin’s other work and a snippet of Sheri’s Anthology story. Be sure to follow their links to more…

STORY DESCRIPTION:

Mash-up of Speculative Fiction / Steam Era Time Travel – Thoughts run OFF THE RAILS into dementia and alternate reality. Love stories run parallel through tests of time. Can a steam train break through space-time into dimensions of the mind? Is it true, all you need is love?  By Sheri J. Kennedy & Kennedy J. Quinn * Paired Artists: Kristin Tetuán and Cameron Tower & Ellen Rowan

Snippet of “Off the Rails” by Sheri J. Kennedy (and Kennedy J. Quinn:

“I suppose you’re here to ask my permission to date my granddaughter,” Tom stated.

Barry broke into a wide smile and turned his head to Mrs. Scott. She rolled her eyes and laughed silently, then pulled the door nearly shut as she left. He hoped she mistook his pleasure as agreement with her amusement at her uncle’s mistake. Though she seemed perceptive enough to guess Barry wanted her daughter. She’d been sizing him up since they’d met.

“Uh, yes sir,” he replied to Tom, “among other things.” He remembered his mission and quit talking, to check the man’s reactions.

Without missing a beat, Tom asked, “What other things would you be interested in from an old man?”

Barry noted his tight connection to reality. No sign of disorientation, at least currently – dementia could be a tricky thing. “Conversation.” He grinned. “Believe it or not, some of us ‘kids today’ in ‘the younger generation’ are actually interested in history.”

It was Tom’s turn to grin. “History’s a tangled subject for me. But I guess Marlene thought I’d be a good source for you with all my reading?”

“Yeah, sure.” Barry waited to see where old Tom would take it.

….“It’s the experience of history you gain by talking with a man.” Tom stopped and studied Barry’s face.

Barry nodded, hoping he’d go on.

Tom apparently took the nod as agreement. “Are you sure that’s what you’re after?” He cocked a bushy eyebrow at the boy. “I’ve seen my share of it, to be certain, but my journey’s been more complicated than most. I’m not sure you’d want to jump on that train.” Tom burst into laughter.

Barry gave an obliging snicker, but the old man’s rich laugh grew louder and wilder until he gasped for breath. Barry snickered again but didn’t get the joke. Perhaps Tom was a little off after all. ...Read more…

THE LOST TRAIN Anthology is coming soon. Release is September 1st. Just a couple more posts about the Authors and Artists that were paired to create works for the project…

Jeffrey Cook is a FVP Featured Author, and he was paired with Lesia Tiongson. Jeffrey’s story of tales told in an abandoned rail car inspired Lesia to add ghosts into her mosaic on stone of a train in the moonlight. The resulting artwork and story are captivating! Both their works will be in the Anthology, but here’s a peek at some of Lesia’s other work and a snippet of Jeffrey’s Anthology story. Be sure to follow their links to more…

STORY DESCRIPTION:

Young Adult Fiction – An old train lost on an abandoned stretch of tracks inspires teens to imagine haunting train whistles in the night and other RAILWAY TALES.  By Jeffrey Cook * Paired Artist: Lesia Tiongson

Snippet of “Railway Tales” by Jeffrey Cook:

Angie settled back into her usual pace. She kept an eye on them, making sure Riley’s wandering, or Cam’s daredevil moments didn’t get them in too much trouble. But she let the girls choose the course and fell into step again each time the group moved forward.

Just as Emma called for a break, Riley – who had wandered ahead again – stopped just around a bend. “Whoa!”

“What is it?” called the out-of-breath Emma. She picked up her pace, trying to catch up.

“You guys have got to come see this!”

When they rounded a dense collection of trees, the group spotted the trio of old train cars Riley had found, all as worn down as the train tracks. Rusted links still hooked them together – the cars decorated in badly faded and chipped graffiti, plant growth, dirt, and the general weight of time.

“Neat!” said Cam and Emma in unison, exchanging a grin at the perfect timing.

“Just a minute, girls…” Angie dug a flashlight out of her hiking pack and moved closer. “Hello…hello,” she called out. When there was no answer, she used the light to check under, around, and finally inside the cars that were open. The only residents turned out to be squirrels, so she waved the girls over. “You can look around. Just be careful, okay?”

The trio dashed in and investigated the train cars...Read more…
