The 2018 Lesfic Bard Awards’ finalists and winners were chosen by a volunteer group of literary professionals, who spent countless hours reading submissions from publishers and independents. Today, we’re excited to announce the winners in our various categories.
The Carly Allen Trilogy is composed of a series of three books titled: Burn Before Reading, I Didn‘t Start The Fire, Burn After Reading. They follow the life of a young lesbian in her last year of high school to college and her new love. Just handing over a complicated break-up, Carly is ready to move on.
You would think this trilogy of books is aimed at a teenage audience, but not at all! Yes, queer teenage girls will love the Carly Allen Trilogy. But if you are over 30 years old, or if you are not necessarily interested by fiction for young LGBTQ adults, you will also be captivated by the story written by author Tina Kakadelis.
The Carly Allen Trilogy is exciting. We always wonder what’s going to happen. It is both a touching and amusing lesbian romance. We fall in love with the characters who are lovely and the author has described their feelings perfectly.
Besides, I leave you in the company of the author, Tina Kakadelis, who is so kind as to share with us what led her to write this story.
Eve Zaremba’s novel “Work for a Million”, released in 1986, follows the adventures of lesbian detective Helen Keremos. Writer Amanda Deibert and artist Selena Goulding from Bedside Press will adapt the book in comics.
