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.

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!

Kal

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)

Lesbian YA Books

I’ve been following a link trail all across the interenet today, looking at blurbs for Lesbian Young Adult books and found a couple that even have me interested in reading them.

The first is: Annie on my Mind

This is the story of two young girls, each an outcast in her own school circles who meet each other at a museum and become first, friends, and later lovers.

While they have different histories and goals in life, the two girls do share a close friendship that quickly grows into love. Liza’s school is struggling to remain open and she finds herself having to defend a student who planned a poorly conceived program: ear piercing in the school basement. This results in a three-day school suspension for Liza and helps to bring Liza and Annie closer together as they both deal with the struggles encountered by many high school students.
Wikipedia

The second book that caught my interest is: Kissing Kate

Kate was Lissa’s best friend. they’ve shared everything for four years. Then one night at a drunken party, Kate leaned in to kiss Lissa, and Lissa kissed her back. And now Kate is pretending Lissa doesn’t exist. Confused and alone, Lissa’s left questioning everything she thought she knew about herself, and about life. but with the help of a free-spirit new friend, Lissa’s beginning to find the strength to realize that sometimes falling in love with the wrong person is the only way to find your footing.

Both of these stories sound intriguing and have gone onto my TBB list.
