The Vampire Jack Townson – Fame Has Its Price 

(Jerome C. Wood, $23.99)

Thursday, April 11, 7 PM | Books & Books, Coconut Grove


Books & Books is proud present an evening with Jack and Shayne Townson discussing Jack’s new book, The Vampire Jack Townson – Fame Has Its Price (Jerome C. Wood, $23.99).

About the Book:

The Vampire Jack Townson is a brutal, unflinching, gut-punch of an urban fantasy novel. Rapid-fire pace and plenty of twists -but not for the faint of heart ” –Jonathan Maberry, NY Times bestselling author of NecroTek and V-Wars and 5-time Bram Stoker Award winner


Trade your entire life for fame, fortune, and eternal beauty. The only thing have to lose is your soul… Magic is real. And real damn scary.

A man down on his luck trips and stumbles into a world of bloodthirsty monsters hidden among the precipices of New York City. A chance encounter with illustrious vampire Alexander LaMont ensnares the clumsy yet hopeful James Donovan in shadow and treachery, thrusting James into his new identity, The Vampire Jack Townson. Will Jack survive the vampiric politics of Manhattan, or will final death come to claim him at the next sunrise?

Welcome to New York. We bite.

Jack Townson’s contemporary fantasy series, The Vampire Jack Townson, is a perilous tale about the dangers of love, deception, and vampiric grit where the action of Jay Kristoff meets the decadence of Anne Rice.


About the Author:

Jack Townson is the FangFam community leader and alternative creator on several social media platforms (Tiktok, Instagram, Twitch), amassing a fanbase of over forty-thousand people and growing with one million likes on the #Fangfam hashtag. An actor, singer, and writer, Jack has been a part of many different projects, being most known for The Vampire Jack Townson original story on TikTok, which delves deep into the secret life of a monster and what it means to find your humanity once more. Jack invites followers to take a look into the mind of an undead bohemian, an artist, and a creature of the night who has found himself trapped in a world of nightmares and a life without sunlight, never to feel the warmth of day or the permanence of true love.

About the Moderator:

Channeling over a decade of experience of film and music into fiction, Shayne’s debut novel, Of Light and Darkness, has landed on coveted bestsellers lists, reaching over forty-thousand readers and has lead to the production of a book trailer starring Michael Welch (The Twilight Saga) and Cassandra Scerbo (Sharknado). In 2016, she founded her speculative fiction imprint, The Parliament House, and in 2021, began the South Florida chapter for the Association of Publishers for Special Sales, hoping to build a community of like-minded storytellers close to home. She strives to write and develop works that appeal to readers who favor a darker fare. Her Of Light and Darkness series is heavily inspired by her own Slavic heritage. Shayne is currently working on developing new dark fantasy works, including two film projects, a few secret novel projects, as well as co-starring in an ongoing web series created by and starring The Vampire Jack Townson on Tiktok.
