Today I’m joining in Robert Zimmermann’s Authors We Love meme. I think it’s pretty self-explanatory, but here it goes anyway: we write about the coolest authors ever.
Okay, so what’s better than a scifi vampire novel with zombies? Not much, right? Well, the one thing that’s cooler is the author who wrote it.
Thomas Winship is a New Yorker who wrote the Vaempires: Revolution, the first in the Vaempires series (read my review). It’s about a world thousands of years in the future, where vampires and humans have learned to live in peace. However, a new breed called vaempires has mutated and now feeds on vampires. They lead a revolution when peace talks fail. It’s a great action novel, with tons of great imagery and bad-ass characters. What’s more, though, is that there’s more below the surface—if you care to look, it’s a political and social discussion as well. I love books with layers.
In addition to the main novel, Tom wrote a novella to accompany the series called White Christmas. It answers questions about the main characters that aren’t addressed in the primary novel, which was really neat. Read my review here.
I met Tom when I volunteered as a stop on one of his blog tours. He thanked me for my review and, because I liked the book so much, I pushed him into a conversation. Haha! I’m cruel.
We talked about his series and the direction it’s headed, and I have to tell you, I’m stoked. This is just an exciting series with incredible potential. Frankly, I can see it being a movie. There’s plenty of action, romance, imperfect heroes, and believable villains.
Make sure you reach out to Tom or at least stalk him online. He’s a great guy and a lot of fun!
