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: Damn. Now THAT’S how you sentence.
AF Henley: Yes. Well. Onward.
The Character Discussion
KW: So… Eddie…
AFH: No. Kaeva.
KW: I saw you totally spell that wrong the first try. Remind me why I have to name my characters things we absolutely can NEVER spell?
AFH: You’re a Sadist.
KW: Oh. Right. True that. Anyway. So Kaeva. KAY-va. For those playing the how-the-hell-do-you-say-it-home game. He’s…. um… Cranky? Generally cranky. Yep.
AFH: I would be too. Care to share why he’s so cranky?
KW: All kinds of reasons, really. Death, mayhem, abuse, oh and those years of enforced celibacy. Lack of blow jobs will do you in every time.
AFH: Good to know that the first teaser is going to be one positively brimming with joy and happiness…
KW: You’re the one who invited me along on this tour thing. Just sayin’. Ahem. Also. HI GUYS. UNICORNS. RAINBOWS. FLUFFY THINGS. And a guy who can break people with a single touch. Tough to be Kaeva. I feel for the man. I really do. OH! And let’s talk about the fact that he doesn’t… actually… SPEAK.
The blanket crinkled as Eddie hurried to follow. “So that’s your name then? Kaeva? That’s a nice name.”
Kaeva rolled his eyes heavenward. Footsteps thumped behind him as Eddie tried to catch up. “Would somebody really shoot me?”
“Yes,” Kaeva said. If patrol found some unknown wandering the shore, they likely would shoot first and ask questions later. Kaeva failed to mention it’d likely be a stun or suppressor round, not kill ammo. The less likely Eddie was to wander off by himself until he was Exile-approved, the better.
“I kind of thought the point of coming here was to avoid being an intake due for processing. The whole free bird experience thing, right?” He fell in step with Kaeva. “Look, I get you’re not exactly thrilled with, well, who knows? Me? Life? The fact you’re here? But help me out, will you? I’m not looking for the two of us to share some kind of bonding experience, but some information would be cool.”
Kaeva came to a halt, and Eddie stumbled to a stop next to him. Kaeva scowled at Eddie, deliberately took several steps away, and channeled calm. He tried to remember when he’d been an Exile intake, though most of that was a blur of pain and suppressors. Not to mention a far less organized system. Back then, people showed up and staggered around the island for a while until somebody found them at gunpoint, usually, and hauled them to the Kings. With the Barrier reinforced and expanded and with Lake and the other seers’ skills online and honed, now the island usually had warning.
“C’mon. Something. Anything. A sentence. A word.” Eddie shuffled from one foot to the other.
Kaeva ground his teeth. The more he attempted to locate the patience hiding in the furthest recesses of his emotional range, the more he wanted to get the hell away from this kid. Goddamnit, but he hated dealing with people.
“First rule,” Kaeva said at last, “don’t come near me. You touch me, you die…”
Breaker (Exile Volume 1)

In 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

Henley was born with a full-blown passion for run-on sentences, a zealous indulgence in all words descriptive, and the endearing tendency to overuse punctuation. Since the early years Henley has been an enthusiastic writer, from the first few I-love-my-dog stories to the current leap into erotica. A self-professed Google genius, Henley lives for the hours spent digging through the Internet for ‘research purposes’ which, more often than not, lead seven thousand miles away from first intentions but bring Henley to new discoveries and ideas that, once seeded, tend to flourish. Henley has been proudly publishing with Less Than Three Press since 2012.
