Shifting Hearts
Re-release of The Wolfs Maine

Shifting Hearts

(Re-release of The Wolfs Maine)
Avalon felt like her life was set on repeat. Every new day was just like the one before until Avalon's friends talk her into venturing out and leaving her dead end relationship behind. Little did she know that she would meet her soul mate face to face and that he would ignite a desire in her that she never knew existed.

John had been watching over Avalon ever since her parents died when she was three but she had no clue. She had only been talking to him online for a year. She slowly learns that there is a whole world and a whole story she had not known about involving every one she knows and cares for.

Her boyfriend Nicholas is not the man she thought him to be, if he is a man at all and John seems to be more than he lets on as well.

Avalon soon discovers the hidden truths but can she handle it? With Nicholas seeking vengeance can John and her friends help her?


"Nicholas! Have you lost your mind?!" He walked over to stand in front of me.
 "Why of course not Ava. Isn't that what you let him call you?"
 My heart was beating out of my chest.
"What are you talking about?"
"Why the man you are seeing. You let him call you Ava right?
"You can't keep things from me Avalon. I know it all."
I had no clue what to say, none at all. Do I confess or lie? I might as well confess since he seems to know or is he just playing me to get answers? What do I do?
"What are you thinking about now? What to tell me? How to tell me you’re seeing someone else and want to leave me, that you know damn well I won't let you do? Want to tell me that is who you were with all day today when you should have been at home?" All I could do was stutter.
"Who? What? How?" His hand was reaching up and wrapping around my throat as he got closer to me and whispered in my ear.
"Because my dear I know it all. I can find out anything. You just ended your own life." I gasped as he threw me towards the broken wine rack that I fell right on top of. Glass punctured my hands as I hit the floor. He started towards me but I couldn't get up, all I could do was crawl my way backwards.
My life was over. Nicholas was surely going to kill me; I could see it in his eyes. He was towering over me all 6'4” of him, he bent down and clasped my throat in his hands. As I looked into his eyes all I could see was rage. It almost looked as if his eyes were turning red. He was beginning to squeeze my throat tighter, I could feel the panic throughout my body but there was nothing I could do.
He had me pinned to the ground, I couldn't move and now I couldn't breathe........

GilesFest 2013

Please join me in welcoming the lovely and talented GL Giles to Exile on Peachtree Street! GL has dropped to let us know more about her release, Water Vamps, released as a 2nd Edition via Black Wyrm Publishing. Here's some insight into this imaginative and very original YA novel:

Water Vamps by GL Giles
Cover Art by Victor Sweatt

Take a both fun-filled and treacherous ride into the waters surrounding the peninsular city of Charleston, South Carolina with G.L. Giles’s water vampires. Slake your thirst for different vampire species and subspecies at the same time! On dry land, you’ll also experience a part of Charleston, South Carolina (set primarily in the 1980s)---from White Point Garden to The Battery to the surrounding marshes, complete with plough mud and fiddler crabs---atmospherically rich with the inherent tapestry of the Carolina Lowcountry and then embellished with a healthy dose of dark fantasy! With several species of vampires in the mix, conflicts naturally arise. Add to that, some of the various species of vampires, as well as some of the humans, also have potentially fatal run-ins with some of the specters and shape-shifters found in this young adult novella as well. More than just peppering the plotline are the mostly human protagonists, Robyn and Marion, who are like contemporary versions of Robin Hood and Maid Marian in many ways---that is, with Robyn being a female and Marion a male in Giles’s mythology---and the ‘young love’ version to boot, as they’re middle school kids. Yet, unlike other children their age, they have special ‘gifts’ and a lot of responsibility for those so young in years. You see, they have the distinct burden, squarely placed upon them, of being the only ones who can save their older counterparts from another place and time: Setiana and Vasario.

Look at just a few excerpts from the reviews of Water Vamps. This is what readers are saying about Water Vamps and GL Giles...

"A new kind of vampire is created in Water Vamps and Giles fascinates readers with those differences."

"I think (Bram) Stoker would be well pleased to see this 'new breed'.

"Anyone who writes like this and can create such a unique twist on the vampire mythos makes me happy to read more and anxious to see what she writes next."

You can connect with GL Giles at the following social media sites. Be on the lookout for upcoming news on her next release! She's definitely one author you will be seeing more of in the future.

Love Is Never Past Tense

Love is Never Past Tense

The events described in the book occur amidst complicated changes in the political and economic system of the former Soviet Union. This is a period of great turmoil for the country and the people. A period of many broken destinies, and uprooted lives.

 The book weaves its story within the discord of the country. Fear is growing, an animal fear. There remains only one way--emigration. An evacuation without bombing and without the ability to come back, the author writes. You cannot give a better definition.

The rest you will need to read. Because of this, the book delivers multifaceted, versatile content in huge volume to the reader’s range of vision. In some special moments, the author makes us breathless, frantic with worry, and hoping to relax if a satisfactory solution of the situation arrives.

The Book Blast will have a tour wide Giveaway for all blogs

From August 26th through 31st Love is Never Past Tense will Blast across the internet.
