Jack and Anna are dead. Not romantic vampire dead. Not even night-of-the-living dead, but really dead.
At least Jack is. Anna might just be having a near-death experience. It’s surprisingly hard to tell. Either way, they’re on a path through the afterlife; where Death wears a polo shirt, factories manufacture broken things, and forests try to trap you. To make it through, they have to stick together.
But sticking together would be a lot easier if they weren’t both keeping secrets. Anna is awesome at pretending everything is fine…until she isn’t. Meanwhile, Jack is afraid he’s gone crazy and this whole adventure is part of his delusion.

Emma G Rose intended to become a kick-ass girl reporter like Nellie Bly. Until the Christmas Eve she stood on a riverbank waiting for rescue divers to pull a body from the water. She stopped waiting and wandered off to explore the world instead. People who keep track of this sort of thing call her writing speculative fiction. It’s a fancy name for what you get when you mix up a dash of sci-fi, a dose of fantasy, and a sprinkling of humor, then add in one of the big life-shaping questions. You know the ones. They usually start with “why.” As in: “Why are we here? What did this happen? And why should we keep hoping for the future?”
When she’s not writing fiction, she’s crafting blogs, ebooks and other marketing text for clients of her Freelance writing business. Emma lives in Hampden, Maine with her dog Teddy. Nothing’s Ever Lost is her first (published) novel.
