Equestrian Author Spotlight Podcast – Believing In Horses!

Valerie Ormond and Believing In Horses

I was so happy Carly Kade included me in her wonderful lineup of equine authors for Episode 42: On Believing in Horses, Local Media & Telling Military-Related Stories with Valerie Ormond (Equestrian Author Spotlight Podcast).

Watch on YouTube, listen to the audio version, and see Carly’s superb interview style. The show notes contain some interesting side tidbits, too.

Thank you, Carly, for this opportunity, and for inspiring me to begin my third book in the series. More about that later….

Help for Homeschoolers!

I want to offer help to parents struggling to homeschool their children, a job most parents are not trained to do. My solution also helps parents fill a void for their horse crazy kids missing their horse activities due to the current COVID19 shutdowns.

Teacher’s Tack for Believing In Horses is available for free here as a PDF file. This teacher’s guide accompanies my book, Believing In Horses, an inspirational story about a strong-willed girl in a military family who commits to saving unwanted horses. My brother, Eddy Ormond, developed learning plans and fun activities, complete with a full homeschooling module to accompany the book. [Read more…]

Equestrian Author Spotlight: Meet Valerie Ormond

Thank you to Carly Kade Creative for this wonderful interview and sharing my story with her many readers and followers. Here is Carly’s beautiful post, and please take a look at some of the great equestrian authors she has featured since starting this series in 2016. I’m honored to be in their company! #authorsunite

In this 40th Equestrian Author Spotlight, I talk with fellow equine author Valerie Ormond. Of course, we discuss the best topics on earth — writing, books and horses! In the interview, horse book lovers will meet the horse that inspired her to write horse books with an important message. She says, “I believe self-doubt is the single biggest obstacle to people achieving success. One does not have to be rich, famous, brilliant, or beautiful to be successful. It takes belief, and determination, to make a difference.” I couldn’t agree more. Happy reading!

Carly Kade Creative


I had a chance to visit in person with Carly Kade during the American Horse Publications 2018 Conference, and I don’t think I know of anyone with a more appropriate business name than “Carly Kade Creative.” She does it all – writes, creates videos, does graphic design, takes photographs, and has amazing marketing talent.

I first met Carly virtually when I featured her post on book reviews, which then led me to learn more about her award-winning equine romance novels. Here is my review of her first book, In the Reins. [Read more…]

Tips for Writing a Book

I hope you enjoy this video and interview as much as I did. Carrie Green, Founder and Director of the Female Entrepreneur Association International, generously allowed me to share this with my readers because so many people tell me they are overwhelmed with the prospect of writing a book.

Please watch this short video if you’d like to see the process broken down into four easy steps – no strings attached! Morgan Gist MacDonald makes it seem so easy and manageable that I may just write another book. 

Here is the full blog post with additional details and a giveaway, too.

I hope these talented entrepreneurs inspire at least one person out there to start writing a book – now go do it!

Author Pays It Forward for Other Authors

I hope you will stop by and check out my guest author interview on Cheryl Holloway’s Blog – she asks great questions! Besides offering writing tips based on her career as a writer, Cheryl hosts authors from around the world to help them gain exposure. In her words: “On this blog, I ‘Pay it Forward’ to other authors by spotlighting them with a Guest Author Interview. I only ask that they too ‘Pay It Forward’ to any other author.”
