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.

“A woman on a fresh start, a new horse, a mysterious cowboy, quirky friends – what better combination for a romance novel? Carly Kade takes riders on a galloping ride through the eyes of Devon Brooke. Devon has a great sense of humor, and she experiences a new self-awareness through her adventures in this story. The author’s character development allows readers to get to know each one, while still leaving questions about what they don’t know about them. I highly recommend this book as a fun and entertaining read for everyone – not just horse lovers.”

Carly didn’t sit still for long before penning a sequel to In the Reins. For a sneak peek, see the Cowboy Away book trailer here.

She is currently writing her third book, which will conclude the series. But she is also working on a spin-off about one of the characters who readers have responded well to. Authors love readers’ feedback!

To find out more about Carly and her books, please see her website at www.carlykadecreative.com.

While there, you can also follow her, see her fun videos, and read her entertaining blog. Keep creating, Carly!

Creating Your Story Mountain

    I like to share, particularly when I’ve invested time at a conference and gained information of potential value to others. So, read on, and consider having saved yourselves several hundred dollars and a few hours of your lives. In your chairs, I’ll bring you highlights of a lecture and exercise during the American Horse Publications’ 2012 Seminar in Williamsburg, VA.

Jody Jaffe and John Muncie’s dynamic “Better Story Crafting” session at the annual seminar provided tips I thought worthy of repeating.

As career journalists and writing professors, including workshops through their company, The Comma Factory, Jody and John’s discussion focused on the journalistic side. But as reflected in the couple’s own words in the conference program, “Good writing is good writing, regardless of the subject.” I believe the tips I’ve pulled out below apply to all writing, whether it be a blog post, fiction, journalism, or even a personal journal. I tend to like visuals, and points I can easily remember, which may explain why I connected so well with the workshop’s main point:

When writing a story, you are developing a mountain your reader is climbing. [Read more…]
