Genre indie filmmaker Nathan Wrann has written and released his first original novel, Dark Matter Heart. The book is being released through Wrann’s Dalton Gang Press, an offshoot of his film production company. You can purchase Dark Matter Heart in a variety of formats, including Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble’s Nook and more. (Full list of formats below.)

Dark Matter Heart is a Young Adult Paranormal Thriller and is the first in a planned series of novels starring the character Cor Griffin, a teenage bloodsucker. The official description reads:

A new town. A new school. A new beginning. Seventeen year-old Cordell Griffin and his mother move from Los Angeles to the Pacific Northwest to deal with his “allergies,” and start a healthier new life. Cor has one goal: To blend in and be invisible. Unfortunately for him, no matter how far he goes, he can’t run away from his secrets. Secrets about who he is. Secrets about why he’s sick. And secrets about why so many people he meets end up dead, drained of blood.

In “Dark Matter Heart,” the origin novel in the “Cor Griffin Bloodsuckers” Young Adult Paranormal Thriller series from filmmaker Nathan Wrann, Cor must uncover the mysteries of his past and conquer the secrets of the present in order to protect the girl of his future, and save himself.

Also coming up in the immediate future of Dalton Gang Press is the sci-fi horror novel co-written by Wrann and Heidi Fuqua and a novelization of Wrann’s first feature film, Hunting Season. Plus, there will be a special edition of Dark Matter Heart released that will include the original screenplay that the novel is based on.

Wrann also directed the feature film thriller Burning Inside, which the Underground Film Journal reviewed here.
