Scott Whitmore interviewed by fellow author Kevin Rau

Recently 40 West Media author Scott Whitmore had the pleasure of being interviewed by Kevin Gerald Rau, author of the H.E.R.O. series. Kevin (follow him @kevin_rau) is a full-time computer program and system administrator, he does the art work for his superhero characters, which look super-cool as you can see by the picture above of Rampart.

“H.E.R.O stands for Homeland Extraordinary Response Organization (H.E.R.O. and the series is about the superheroes of Metrocity. You get all the great benefits of a novel – the dialog, thought process, quirks, interpersonal relationships and so on, plus all the action of a comic book (without the pictures).”

To learn more about Kevin and his H.E.R.O. novels, take a look around his website.

“Carpathia” gets first review

Author and blogger C.C. Cole was kind enough to read Carpathia, and write a 4-star review on her blog and Amazon.com, which included the following:

“The characters are interesting, well developed, and the action picks up and moves at a pace with enough surprises to keep the reader’s attention with minimal confusion.  For readers that like manly heroes, beautiful women, vampires, werewolves, steampunk backdrop with the added interesting element of dirigibles in the air!”

“Carpathia” now available in paperback

Prefer your books the old-fashioned way? As in … a real book? No problem. Carpathia, the debut novel by Scott Whitmore, is now available in paperback at Amazon (click here) for the low price of $8.

Carpathia tells the story of Daniel Jameson’s search for revenge against the vampire that killed his fiance. After spending years trying to locate and destroy Prince Radu Zeklos, the vampire that killed Amanda, Jameson finds a solution to his problem when in the summer of 1882 the King of Romania decides to host an international race of “self-propelled ground machines” through the Carpathian Mountains.

Four nations — Germany, England, France and the United States — are set to take part in the race, and Jameson finds allies in Major William “Stump” O’Brien, the American team’s military liaison, and Olivia Lowenby, the daughter of the man responsible for building the English vehicle and a woman who also desires revenge against the vampire for the death of her brother.

Initially opposed to the race because if successful it will destroy the “traditional way of life” for Romania’s vampires and werewolves, Prince Zeklos has changed his mind. He too seizes the contest as an opportunity to achieve something he has spent years dreaming of: the creation of a new nation of the undead, Carpathia.

With airships battling in the skies and humans fighting undead creatures on the ground, “Carpathia” is filled with action and plot twists as Jameson and Zeklos maneuver to achieve their very different goals.
