The Colt is Galloping

I am so pleased with how my novel The Colt is being received by readers. It is always very inspiring to hear positive feedback and I am so pleased to know that readers have enjoyed it. I’m also pleased to hear criticisms and thoughts on how the story could have been better. That helps me to improve as a writer. I thought I would share some of my favourite reviews here for you to take a look at.thecolt185

4 Sweet Peas From JosieGoodreads at Mrs Condit & Friends

This is my first book by Kalita Kasar and I really liked it, it goes along at a good pace, the characters were well developed, and we get a satisfying ending. She is certainly an author I look forward to reading more from.

I have to recommend this to those who love early eighties gay difficulties, finding support and love, fighting for the right thing against the odds and developing a love that will stand against time.

4 Stars From D on goodreads

What you will also find in this story is love, understanding, hope, and commitment in a time when the world was tilted on its axis because of this deadly disease, how two people survived in these times and how their love rang true.

The Colt

The Colt
Starting at: $6.99
by Kalita Kasar

Also available in paperback from amazon.com

thecolt185 (1)Daytime soap star and part time rancher Marcus Bailey ought to know better than to take in a stray. But there’s something about the streetwise hustler he pulls out of a bar room brawl that makes him throw caution to the wind. Malcolm Quinn, half starved, wary, and bearing the physical and emotional scars of a tough upbringing in foster care, wants nothing to do with charity, nor will he brook anything that hints at pity.

When Marcus offers Malcolm a job and a place to stay, the kid turns him down flat, but all that changes when Marcus’ mare, Sylvie gives birth to a gangly, long eared colt that falls ill soon after birth. Malcolm agrees to stay and help with the foal, never realizing the chain of events that decision will unleash.

Marcus’ jealous and violent partner, Paul Wilson, escalates his abuse of Marcus under the guise of a BDSM arrangement and Malcolm and Marcus are caught up in a rollercoaster ride of violence and scandal. Marcus must find the strength to stand up to Paul and end their relationship, while Malcolm struggles to come to terms with the BDSM lifestyle and become the loving dominant that Marcus needs. Two men from very different worlds, can Malcolm and Marcus surmount the obstacles in their path and forge a future together?

The Colt Accepted!

I have just finished the contract signing process for my novel, The Colt which has been accepted by Torquere Press. It sure has been a while between drinks, as we say down here in Australia, but it is such a good feeling to have the book contracted!

Of course now, the real work begins with edits, marketing information and cover art discussions all lying ahead, but I am excited to get it all happening. What a great start to the new year. There is one of my goals achieved already!

Stay tuned for further news as the weeks progress.

Submissions

After a year that has resulted, for various reasons in some blows to my writing confidence, I have just now hit the send button on a couple of submissions to publishers. I’ve sent out The Colt under this pen name and a hopeful re-release under my Meg Leigh pen name.

I hope I will have some good news soon. Send me a little luck, if you have a moment!

Thanks.
Kal

Re Release: Midnight Blue

Saul Matthews, the son of a wealthy landowner, dreams of breaking free from his father’s over controlling ways and striking out to build his own empire in the Australian bush. He longs for his own land and the space to breed fine horses, rather than following his father into the beef cattle trade.

To achieve his dream, Saul has trained a fine gray thoroughbred horse, Midnight Blue, and hopes to win a local horse race which will give him the capital to put behind his dream.

When the horse is stolen by Bushranger, Daniel O’Malley, Saul gives chase. The attraction between them is obvious from their first encounter, but to act on those feelings is to risk everything, in an era when such ‘unspeakable’ acts were punishable by imprisonment or death.

Available Now $1.99USD From Scarlet Tie Books

Working

I have taken the first steps to blocking out a new story. It might be a novella, it might be more…it may just turn out to be a short story, and the best part about not knowing how long this one will be is that it doesn’t matter. It is nice to feel the ‘joy’ of having an idea at least, after so long.

Here goes!

Sexy Decadence!

As anyone who has read my fiction will know, I like a little bit of decadence in my life. I like men with a sweet exterior and a hot interior and even the most vanilla of relationships needs a little bit of the heat and spice sometimes!

The same goes when I want something sweet to eat. Chocolate is definitely my flavour of choice, but alas, I am not permitted to eat the rich, creamy milk chocolate anymore. This is both a medical and a personal choice. Medical because of the demon cholesterol. Personal because nowadays a lot of milk chocolate products contain palm oil, which is a product responsible for unacceptable amounts of deforestation along with the unfair exploitation of laborers in developing countries.

Hence my need to find a way to enjoy my favourite food whilst keeping my doctor and my conscience happy.

The above photo is it!

I call this recipe Sexy Decadence because that’s exactly what it amounts to. I use locally grown naked ginger and 70% Cacao dark (noir) chocolate to create it. It’s very simple, too.

Recipe:

1/2 block of Lindt Chocolate Noir (70% Cacao)
1/2 Pack Bundaberg Naked (non chyrstalised) ginger.

Method

Using a double boiler, gently melt half a block of dark chocolate. Drop pieces of ginger into melted chocolate and stir to coat.

Place coated ginger pieces onto a cookie tray lined with baking paper and allow to set.

Voila! You have delicious, home-made candy that is sweet with a little bit of spice. Sexy Decadence!

Any left over chocolate after coating can be made into ‘squiggles’ on baking paper and served with vanilla ice cream.

Hop Against Homophobia Contest Winner

Firstly, I would like to thank everyone who commented on my blog post for the hop against homophobia and all those who entered the draw for a copy of one of my books.

Please forgive my delay in posting the winner I have been quite busy with a poultry show and had to wait until that was over before I could draw the winner.

The answer to the contest question is “Chop Chop” which is the name of my beautiful Australorp Rooster. It has nothing to do with what will happen to my lovely boy, but is a nickname he was given as a chick because instead of saying “cheep cheep!” like his brother and sister, he used to say “chop chop!”

I love him dearly and find him to be one of the best pets I have ever owned.

The winner of the competition is: Ashley E.

I will email you your prize Ashley and thanks so much for entering!

Hop Against Homophobia

It really puzzles me that whilst we live in one of the most educated and enlightened ages that mankind has known, we still have to hold events such as this. Think about it. We now know enough about the universe to accept the probability that a god does not exist, or if it does, that it is not that interested in the day to day happenings on the Earth. We know enough to understand that homosexuality is not exclusive to humanity, and yet, we have to spend time trying to stamp out the fear of what is essentially a normal human diversity, much like skin or eye colour or right or left handedness. I am puzzled. That’s all I can say. It’s time we grew up and accepted that love is love.

“There are four questions of value in life… What is sacred? Of what is the spirit made? What is worth living for, and what is worth dying for? The answer to each is the same. Only love.”
Johnny Depp.

If you’d like a chance to win copy of your choice of either The Keeper or Queen of Pentacles, here’s what to do.

Unscramble the letters below to discover the name of my pet Rooster (pictured below) and email your answer to me at kalkasar@gmail.com. All correct entries will go into the draw.

My rooster’s name is?: phco poch (unscramble the words)
