Author Stephen Mark Rainey and filmmakers Mat Smith and Myron Smith are teaming up together in close collaboration to bring you something very special… the Horror novel, “Young Blood”.

We are pleased to announce that the manuscript is now complete! This campaign was created to raise funds to order paperback copies of the novel and the promotional material for the first printing. 

Any pledge, no matter how big or small, will go a long way to help bring this project to life. Everyone who pre-orders a copy of the novel will have their name or business listed in the acknowledgements section of the book. We are also offering pledge packages that include the films of Mat and Myron Smith or a copy of The Monarchs by Stephen Mark Rainey. 

Stephen Mark Rainey is author of the novels Dark Shadows: Dreams of the Dark (with Elizabeth Massie), Balak, The Lebo Coven, The Nightmare Frontier, Blue Devil Island, and The Monarchs (now available from Crossroad Press), five short story collections, and over 90 published works of short fiction. 

Mat Smith and Myron Smith are the writers/directors of Young Blood Evil Intention and Invasion of the Killer Cicadas. 

Here a brief synopsis of the story: Raised in a torn home with dysfunctional parents, one girl discovers she has a special ability to make big changes, with even bigger consequences. Anavey Winchester, with the loyal assistance of her innocent little sister Anastasia, form an army of young blood-thirsty vampires to kill all the adults. With people disappearing everywhere, it seems Anavey’s dreams might become a reality. Will Anastasia escape the cult before it’s too late?
