    Carly-Rae’s show is fabulous, fun, and super casual. She made this nerdy introvert feel right at ease, and at home. It was more like talking to a friend at a sleepover than a boring old Q&A session.

    Melissa Muldoon


    Working with “Hey, it’s Carly Rae” was an excellent experience. She did a fantastic job promoting my three novels, Dreaming Sophia, Waking Isabella, and Eternally Artemisia. She was efficient, responsive to my emails, and delivered everything she promised and more! I appreciated the effort she took to read my books, write authentic, heartfelt reviews, and then promote them on her social media bringing my books to the attention of a wider audience. She is a savvy marketer and goes the extra step to take photos of herself dressed up to match each book’s cover. Her presentations are unique and bring each book to life. Thanks, Carly Rae. I will use you again!
