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."

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.
