Welcome to the Breaker (Exile, Volume 1) Blog Tour and Giveaway! We’re both super excited about this new release and thrilled to be able to share it with you. Throughout this tour, we’re going to be introducing many of the characters within, and associated with, Exile’s bizarre shores, as well as introducing Exile itself. Then we’re going to top that off with a quick little teaser.

However, before we get into any of that we wanted to remind you that we’ve got a couple of awesome giveaways going along with the tour so be sure to read through to the end to find out how you could win either a Silver-plated Starfish Anklet (just by leaving a single comment!), or the grand prize of a signed, print copy of Breaker, a coordinates bracelet with the Believe. Seek. Prove. reminder so you can always find your way back to the island of Exile, and a $20 gift certificate to the Less Than Three Press book market.

Kelly Wyre: Insert something clever, here.

AF Henley: Oh, I’ll—

KW: Don’t say it!

The Character Discussion

AFH: True. We don’t want anyone thinking I’m a weirdo—

KW: You think they’re only going to start thinking that now?

AFH: — we should probably start talking about the next character who is one of MY faves. Rivet. (God, I love that name.)

KW: It really is one of the better ones, absolutely. What’s your favorite random factoid about our mainland dude?

AFH: His entire character just caught me. He’s funny, smart, good with his tools… uh… machinery—

And just like that, we’re back in weirdo land. Not that we ever really leave, I suppose…

Before we leave you to the rest, please allows up to give a great big thank you to Joyfully Jay for hosting us today, and another to you for joining in on the fun. Best of luck with the giveaway and we hope you enjoy the post!

Until next time,

Kelly Wyre and AF Henley <3


Excerpt

“So,” Rivet drawled, his smile growing. “You were going to an island. To figure out your Estrangement.”

“Kind of, yes.” Eddie frowned at Rivet’s expression. “You find that amusing?”

Rivet took a long breath and finally lifted his vapor stick back to his lips. He pushed off the wall, took a few steps, and then turned back. When he answered, Rivet wasn’t looking at Eddie. Instead, he stared at the wall. “What I find amusing is that sometimes when we are in our most need, we manage to miss the things that are right in front of us. We go blindly toward the obvious because we are panicked by the obscure.”

Eddie shook his head. “Huh?”

A smile grew around Rivet’s dangling vapor stick. “I’m trying to say that maybe what you’re looking for is right in front of your face.” He waved at the wall when Eddie continued to stare at him. “Open your eyes, Eddie. The first step is to believe.”

Eddie licked his lips, tried to ease the frown of his face, and kept his voice light. “In?”

Exile Breaker Giveaway“Miracles?” Rivet shrugged. “Magic? New beginnings, bigger dreams, unimaginable possibilities?”

He reached for Eddie’s wrist, caught it even though Eddie tried to pull back, and drew Eddie away from the wall. With one hand, he turned Eddie towards the brick, and with the other he pointed.

Images, letters, numbers, and symbols had been painted on the surface with meanings that Eddie had no way to decipher. Swirls, lines, and circles of red, green, blue, and yellow had been formed into words and pictures that told the tale of a street life that Eddie didn’t know. Graffiti, done in both painstaking ambiguity and haphazard clarity had transformed the simple, crumbling brick into a work of art. And in the middle of the chaos rested the words of a legend:

Believe

Seek

Prove

Eddie turned and looked blankly at Rivet. “You’re kidding me, right?”

Blurb

Exile Breaker CoverIn the wake of several near-cataclysmic events, humanity created the Cure, a DNA-altering antidote to death by disease and old age. But all cures come with side effects: a small percentage of the population develops a wide range of powers, some of which are lethal to others, and some which are lethal to the wielder.

These people are called the Estranged, hunted and shunned, safe only on the Island of Exile. It is here that Kaeva and Eddie meet—and where they set a prophecy in motion, quite possibly sealing their own demise, and even the end of Exile.

Genre: Gay, Urban Fantasy

Notes: contains some explicit content and includes thoughts and discussions of past and potential suicide

  1. Thank you for hosting us! 😀

    That’s where the inscriptions on the bracelet came from! And was Rivet riveting? (LOL) Yep. 101 %. *insert heart-shaped eyes* I imagine him as a sexy god with a husky voice. *happy sigh*

    Why does Eddie look like a gazelle surrounded by lions to me? Only that in here, the lions aren’t there to kill him but to shower him with grumpiness (Kaeva) & affection (Kaeva & the company. :D).

    Rivet & Frost are my favorites so far. (What about the MCs?) You had to ask? *rolls eyes*

    *winks*

    Thanks for coming by to Joyfully Jay, Kel & Henley! <3

    • *laughs* I love that you love the side characters as much as the MCs! They’re oh-so-important too. 😀

      As for Eddie, I wouldn’t worry about him too much. I’m pretty sure he’s in for some fun eventually. XD

      Thank YOU for staying with us on the tour! I’m glad you’re having a good time and I wish you lots of luck with the giveaway. <3

    • I have a super soft spot for Rivet and Frost, myself.

      😀

      Thank you!

    Rivets are the beginning of a sound structure. And that is my weakest attempt … at … that thing …. I forgot the word.

    So interesting character, Rivet. Definitely cryptically fun. Well for other people anyway. I hate statements designed to expand my perceptions. I want clear simple answers to all my questions.

    This makes it sound like an even greater epic adventure. Looking forward to it.

    • What a cool thought, Frost! I love that… the beginning of a sound structure. Talk about your wickedly cool analogy. Uh, I mean, YES that’s what we meant by using the name in the FIRST place, I SWEAR! XD

      Thank you very much for your kindness and your company! <3

    • We definitely like to think of it as epic, that’s for sure. =D

      Thank you for stopping by.

  4. Why is it that I imagine Rivet in tight jeans and black tank shirt? When he pushes of the wall, he blows out some smoke from his vapour stick. And while he is speaking, we are blessed with his deep, calm voice and his obviously smart mind. ???
