Book Tour & Giveaway (US/Int): Read Tom Winship’s Vaempires: Zombie Rising ‘chunk by bloody chunk’
Please help me welcome Vaempires author and fellow sci-fi geek Tom Winship!
Hello everyone. Welcome to the Bloody Chunks Tour!
I’m Thomas Winship, author of Vaempires: The Evolutionary War—a vampire series that explores the question: what if vampires evolved?
For this book tour, I decided to do something a bit different. Instead of sharing excerpts, reviews, interviews, and all the usual accompaniments, I’m giving you the book itself—piece by piece.
Or chunk by bloody chunk! (DVK note: Ewww!)
This tour is the only place where you can read Vaempires: Zombie Rising, the next chapter in the vaempires saga, before its official release!
|The tale of The Evolutionary War resumes in Væmpires: Zombie Rising.
Væmpires have taken control of twelve major cities. Their leader, Vielyn, seeks the atomic weapons that will bring the rest of the world to its knees.
Vampire forces are reeling. As Linq and Ray race to the royal estate to rendezvous with Cassandra and Daniel, the princess is captured and Daniel falls.
With the fate of world shifting to their teenage shoulders, Linq and Ray must deal with tremendous losses while battling a most unexpected—and undeadly—new foe.
This tour wouldn’t be possible without the time and efforts of a very special group of people, beginning with Silvia and Franny at Dark Mind Book Tours and including everyone on the list below. Please show your support by stopping by, commenting, and spreading the word!

About the author
Thomas Winship was born in Middletown, NY (USA) and still resides in Orange County. He holds an MBA in Management from St. Thomas Aquinas College, where he serves as MBA Director and adjunct professor of courses in English Composition, Communications, and Business. He also spent fifteen years working for a global pharmaceutical company, specializing in organizational development, talent management, and training.
|Tom writes in his spare time. His first novel, a mystery/legal thriller entitled Temporary Insanity (a.k.a. Case Closed), was a 2008 finalist in a national contest but failed to garner industry attention. His second novel, Væmpires: Revolution, was published in October and a follow-up novella, Væmpires: White Christmas, was published in December.
He is an avid collector of books, comic books, music, and movies. His interests are diverse: on any given day, Tom is likely to be found watching a horror movie, attending a hard rock concert, or enjoying a Broadway show.
He is currently working on the next installment of the “Væmpires” series, which is scheduled for a 2012 release.

DVK–you are awesome! Thank you so much for helping share Vaempires: Zombie Rising.
Good luck to everyone in the giveaway!
Congrats on the book. Thanks for the giveaway and chunks of the book at a time.
Thank you, Crystal. Good luck!
Thanks for hosting Tom and his book.
Tom, what made you decide to post the book chapter by chapter during this book tour?
And thanks for giving away a copy!
I wanted to do something for the people who’ve been so kind and gracious throughout the last year, and in particular, during my book tours. I wish I could’ve written fifty pieces to share, but I’m not that prolific (plus, who’d want to read pieces for ten weeks, right?). I hope it brings a ton of new readers to these blogs, because they are amazing.
Thank you for commenting, Lisa. Good luck!
Thomas- I think it was smart to provide a copy of the first chapter in your book. I read it and I’m hooked! 🙂 I hope I’m the lucky winner. If not, I’ll be buying the book.
What’s next for you and the readers? Do you plan on writing more about vampires?
Thanks so much for the giveaway!
Thank you, SA! I’m glad you’re hooked. Just follow the tour and you can read the entire thing.
And, yes, the vaempires tale will continue …
i enjoyed the chapter.
Thank you, BN
Thanks for the giveaway. Now I just need to get off my butt and read the first two book in the series which are sitting on my computer. So many books, so little time.
Thanks Kerry. I know the feeling.
This sounds like a really amazing and interesting book. Did you always have the story inside you or did it come to you after being inspired from some other author or event? sdylion(at)gmail(dot)com
I’d like to think it was always inside me … but I’ve definitely been influenced by great vampire stories along the way.
Thanks so much to Tom for asking GT to be part of this tour! Apologies for the lateness of my comment – real life is kicking my ass right now. WTB more hours in the day… so I can get some sleep!
I somehow had the giveaway set to end too early, so I’ve opened it back up to be available for the full length of the tour. Sorry about any inconvenience that caused! <3
No problem, DVK. I’m just happy to be here!
Congrats to Crystal Y. on winning the ebook giveaway of Vaempires: Zombie Rising! Thanks to everyone who participated and a huge shout out to the always-entertaining Tom Winship!
