May 2027: The United States is now The New United States, a security-obsessed, isolationist state policed by humanoid robots. After over a decade living in a post-apocalyptic, prison-like Los Angles, a man plays The Raffle to gain entry into The New United States. He hopes to reunite with his wife and daughter who flew east before the fateful attack on LA on July 4, 2016, but when security is emphasized over freedom, what will navigating The New United States entail if he wins?
What readers are saying…
“This is a fantastic book! Best thing I have read in over a decade.”
“This is such a great adventure and it’s definitely worth the read. Not only exciting but also thought provoking!”
“The excellent story and character development sucked me right in and I couldn’t get out until I was done wit the whole book.”
The real person behind Randy Smith (a pen name) was born in Downtown L.A. in 1977. An avid punk rock fan, Randy played in several punk bands in the early to mid 90s. In college, Randy specialized in international relations and history. After teaching for a year, Randy moved to Washington, D.C. for law school. Randy has been a practicing attorney for the past sixteen years.
“Randy Smith” was conceived four years ago when his creator quit driving to work and opted for public transportation instead. Ditching his car was a life-changing decision. The long cross-town commutes on L.A. Metro trains and buses allowed Randy the creative space he needed to write “The Raffle” series and several screenplays, including one film now in development. Randy is currently working on writing/screenwriting projects while still working as a full-time attorney and on his other passions: husband, standup comic/actor, law professor, public transportation activist, and podcaster.

Both of us are messed up, both of us pretending.
I’ve played with her, manipulated and bullied her, right up until the moment I realised how much I wanted her.
When I was planning to beg for forgiveness, someone else was planning her demise.
Her crown might have slipped but no one will ever be able to take it away, she’s a Princess, my Princess to the very core.
I’ve spent every moment of the last few years counting down for my freedom, now I want to be caught and bound to her.
Archer’s Creek was where I was forced to come; now it’s the only place I’ve ever wanted to stay.
Can she forgive me or has my past left me beyond redemption.
