Author Gary Jonasabout this book: Night Marshal is a vampire western. Jack Talon, an infamous gunslinger and former US marshal arrives in a small Colorado mining town in the old west and must face off against a vampire. This action-packed novella is the first in a series I created as a shared character. I had other writers pen sequels to this story. There's a box-set available of the first three books, so feel free to grab that if you like. But I'm here to talk about the first one because that's the one I wrote.

My original plan was to write this as a screenplay. An artist friend wanted to do it up as a graphic novel, but that never got off the ground, so I wrote it as a novella. It was too long to submit to any short story markets, so I released it as an ebook and paperback myself. This new world of publishing is truly amazing. I worked with one of the top editors in the field on this book, and I learned a lot from her. This was also the first time I worked with my current cover artist.

Jack Talon is loosely based on Doc Holliday, but I didn't want to be limited to Holliday's life, so I changed some key details, while still honoring the homage to the infamous gunslinger. But mostly, I just wanted to write a vampire story set in the old west because it was fun.

I hope you enjoy the adventure.
