Tour and giveaway: AF Henley and Kelly Wyre: Breaker (Exile, Volume 1)

exile-breaker-header

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 Teaser

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

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

  1. Congratulations on the release! Kaeva sounds like a really interesting character… I’m sure I’m going to enjoy this blog tour! 😉

    • Hi there,
      Thank you! We rather adore the silent-yet-deadly Kaeva, ourselves. *wink* Hope you do enjoy the tour! Thank you for commenting. 🙂

    • Thanks, we hope you have a great time with it. It’s an honour to have you join us. 😀

      As for Kaeva, I remember that the first time I heard his story I wasn’t sure if I was more in awe of the fact that he had managed to live with himself, or nervous with the fact that he’d found the fortitude to keep going. Then I realised that there’s an awful lot of softy underneath the hard exterior so that’s cool.

      Thanks for stopping in and commenting! Good luck with the giveaway! <3

  2. So Kaeva. KAY-va. For those playing the how-the-hell-do-you-say-it-home game.

    yep yep…definitely need to know how to say it!

    • ’tis very important. *sage nod*

      😀

      Thank you for stopping by!

    • It was a hard one to get used to typing as well. My fingers did not want to put the letters in that order. XD I considered putting in a shortcut so that anytime I typed Ka, Kaeva would auto-populate. Then I realised that Kelly would be doing the pre-edits so I didn’t have to worry about it… *ducks shoe* But in all truth, I love the way the name rolls off the tongue, though.

      Thanks very much for hopping on the tour with us! I hope you enjoy it, and wish you lots of luck with the giveaway. <3

  4. Congratulations to both of you on the upcoming release!

    Oh, how many kings, emperors, popes would not have gone to war with the right blow job at the right time. 😉

    “First rule,” Kaeva said at last, “don’t come near me. You touch me, you die…”

    Why do I have the feeling that the unspoken words here are: ”Keep talking, you die.” I love how much difference we can already see between Kaeva and Eddie. ☺️

    • Well… one thing we both learned along the way was how much Eddie likes to talk. Actually, I’m not even sure it’s a like thing. It’s more of a, can’t-stop-if-I-tried thing. XD

      Thanks for joining the tour, my friend, and also for your kind thoughts. We’re really excited about it. <3

    • I think at one point Kaeva actually does more or less tell Eddie that. Or at least heavily imply it.

      And then of course he realizes he loves the chatter and the chatterbox and all is rainbows and sunshine out of everyone’s asses but for a while there is really was touch and go-er, die, rather. 😜

  5. I love that that last sentence is read like a threat, but is meant as a necessary warning. Must be fun to learn the truth in the context of the story. Very much looking forward to this one.

    I personally never play the “how the hell do you day that name home game” I just mispronounce it in a new way every time I read it. I figure I will get it right at least once before the book is over. XD

    Thanks for sharing you guys. I look forward to the tour.

    • Without saying the name of the series, I did that with an entire cast of characters because even once I *did* hear the correct pronunciations, my head couldn’t process them to those sounds when I read the letters. In my defense, they were all foreign and had a lot of dot-dots and accent marks. XD

      Thank you for joining us! I hope you enjoy and best of luck with the giveaways. <3

  6. Shirley Ann Speakman

    Congratulations AF and Kelly on your upcoming new release the book sounds fascinating and I’m looking forward to meeting the characters and reading the teasers.

    • Thank you so much for the lovely comment! We hope you enjoy the tour!!

    • Thank you for all your kind thoughts, Shirley! We have *so* *many* teasers for you this tour so I hope you enjoy them all. 😀

      And it’s always great to catch up with you. Best of luck with the giveaway! <3

  7. “So Kaeva. KAY-va. For those playing the how-the-hell-do-you-say-it-home game.”
    Definitely needed the help with pronunciation, lol. Thank you for providing it. Sounds like such an interesting book. Great to see you two come together to churn out another book =D

    • Thanks, H.B.! Great to see you again, and I’m glad you’ve jumped on board with the tour. 😀

      One of the best things about this name, for me, was how easily it fit with the character. There’s something both hard and soft about it, I think (and that is SO Kaeva). And there I was almost spelling it wrong again. XD

    • We had way too much fun with this one.

      Thank you so much for stopping by!! 😀

  8. IDK why commenting here slipped on my mind. Well, the excerpt’s great; showing the immediate attraction between Eddie & Kaeva. LOL! Alright! They’re not exactly thrilled on each other’s presence or at least based on Kaeva’s. Looks like Eddie’s in for an adventure.

    Thanks for coming by to Hearts on Fire, Kel & Henley! <3

    • Thank YOU for joining us, James! Glad you’ve stopped in here and I’m even more excited to hear that you enjoyed. 😀

      They are both definitely in for an adventure. And as long as we keep all the kitchen knives away from Kaeva… who am I kidding? He’s dangerous enough all on his own. XD

  9. This is 100% my jam! 🙂
