A warm welcome to authors A.F Henley & Kelly Wyre joining us today on their blog tour for new release: “Breaker: Exile, Volume 1”.
Both authors took a moment to share a discussion they had and there is also a great giveaway to participate in!
Welcome A.F & Kelly 🙂
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.
The Character Discussion
Kelly Wyre: So… let’s talk Greek myths.
AF Henley: I do love the Greeks.
KW: …which is a fact, not a myth. Let’s try this again, and see if my co-author gets the clever hint this time. HEY. HENLEY. LET’S TALK ABOUT MYTHS.
KW: Oh forget it. (Do y’all see what I put up with here?) One of the more endearing things about Eddie is how he’s up to date on things out of date. Like the 20th century and also legends of yore. For example, the Ferryman who carts souls across the River Styx and into the underworld. And what is it that Eddie SAYS… Henley?
AFH: *sings* Don’t pay the ferryman… ’til he gets you to the other side.
KW: And Henley’s back, ladies and gentleman! Bravo!
“I ain’t doing this for free.”
Why Eddie assumed the fisherman would be a weathered, wrinkled old man was beyond him. He knew enough about the regeneration qualities of the Cure to know that the aging process and the deterioration of skin and body had been bested. It still seemed odd to be looking into the crystal-bright eyes of a man with flawless, smooth skin when that man made his living from the sea. Santiago, this man was not.
The wind was harsh, the glare of sun coming off the water was intense, and Eddie was more than sure that the whoopsie feeling in his guts was turning his skin gray and green.
“Kid.” The fisherman knocked on the counter that ran alongside him, the sound as hollow and dull as the man’s voice. “You gotta pay me. I ain’t doing this—”
“For free.” Eddie finished the sentence for him. “I heard you the first time. I’m just pondering how smart it’d be to pay the ferryman before he gets me to the other side.” The fisherman lifted an eyebrow, and Eddie gave him a wan smile. “I’m pretty sure that I’m not even supposed to fix a price.”
“Then I guess you should be fixing to get out of my boat and back onto the dock,” the fisherman said without even a second’s hesitation.
“It’s a joke,” Eddie told him. “It’s this old belief thing where—”
“Yeah, I know.” The man snapped. “I can read just fine, thank you.”
Eddie smacked his lips and held up his wrist. “Well, that’s just great then, isn’t it? Where’s your credit scan—”
“No credits.” The man’s expression didn’t change, even with his clipped tone. “Are you crazy or something, kid? That shit’s traceable.”
The fisherman frowned. “And I ain’t gonna have someone tracing you back to my boat, is what I’m saying.” He eyed Eddie from bottom to top, then back down again. “I’ll take those boots, for one. And the jacket as an extra since you’ve held me up for too damn long.”
“But take ’em off, or get out.”
Eddie leaned against the railing of the ship and began to work off his left boot. “Oh, sure, fine. I’ll just walk around with bare feet and arms. It’s not like I’m going to need clothing or anything. I mean, what the fuck, right? I’m going to Exile, after all. It’s probably got, well, I don’t know, magic tailors that’ll spin me a new jacket out of moondust. And who needs boots if the walkways are laid with silk? Yep.” He blew a long breath and tossed the boot in front of the fisherman. “I’ll be just fine without them.”
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.
