PHOENIX - Dec. 11, 2018 - PRLog -- The EQUUS Film Festival has named author Carly Kade as the 2018 WINNIE Award winner in the Best Equine Romance category for her novel, Cowboy Away. The award was presented in New York City at the sixth annual EQUUS Film Festival. Carly received her first WINNIE Award in 2016 in the Best Western Fiction category for In the Reins, the first book in her series.

The EQUUS Film Festival is the leading showcase for domestic and international equestrian content including feature films, shorts, documentaries, music videos, commercials, training, educational materials, art and literature.

"The EQUUS Film Festival brings the storytellers of the horse world together through films, videos, art, music, and books," said Carly Kade, author of the In the Reins book series. "I am honored that Cowboy Away, the second novel in my series for horse lovers, has earned the 2018 EQUUS Film Festival Literary Award for Best Equine Romance."

A deeply romantic and suspenseful sequel, Cowboy Away follows horse trainer McKennon Kelly as he hits the road with nothing but his memories, a pistol and hope to put his demon to rest. He's a cowboy caught between his present and his past who learns that sometimes one has to go backwards in order to go forward. In the follow-up to In the Reins, readers start exactly where the first book left off, take a deep dive into the history of the Green Briar gang, meet some new characters, and follow the enigmatic Quarter Horse trainer into his tumultuous past.

Praise for Cowboy Away:

"Sequels can be difficult to write, but not for Carly Kade. Cowboy Away is fantastic and without a doubt one of the best sequels I have ever read. This follow-up to In the Reins brings McKennon's and Devon's story full circle, yet leaves you hungry for more! I very highly recommend this equestrian romance!" - Laurie Berglie, Maryland Equestrian Lifestyle Guide

"Carly Kade hits another home run with her sequel to In the Reins. As much as I enjoyed the first book, I like this one even more. She strikes the perfect balance between making her characters human and revealing their flaws, while still allowing us to love them and root for their success. I loved the backstory she developed for McKennon - he's even sexier in this book than he was in the original." - Amy Elizabeth, Author of the Aspen Eyes Series

"If you love horses, then I give Cowboy Away five blue ribbons, and if you love the romance genre, then I'd give it five golden hearts. And if you love both those things ... that makes it a solid 10!!!" - Sarah Evers Conrad, Equestrian Journalist, Lexington, KY

"Her books are one of the most realistic love stories I've ever read, and has me cheering them on from my perch. While you don't have to be a horse lover to understand the book, equestrians will be pleased to feel the authenticity of horse training, ownership, and competition that is such an important part of Devon and McKennon's lives." - Heather Wallace, Author of Confessions of a Timid Rider

Not your typical romance, the In the Reins horse book series is for readers who enjoy equestrian fiction with a message. Carly's novels are available now in audiobook, paperback and eBook on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Google Books and Kobo.
