Who We Are

Who We Are

Eos Publishing is an independent publishing house with two missions: to publish the very best in women-fronted fiction, and to make it easy for our authors to do so. Our focus is on stories about women, a term we define as “any character who identifies as such.” Biological gender has nothing to do with that. We welcome stories in any genre, about any sexuality, from anyone, as long as the women are center-stage and kick ass. You can read more about our submission guidelines here.

We offer our authors a means to publish a high-quality, well-marketed, perfectly edited book with a professionally made cover, and attractive inlay. We’re a traditional publishing house and we work with a three-step process, which you can read about here.

The Eos team is small and consists of freelancers who are often authors as well. Pairing authors with other authors facilitates the free exchange of ideas. After all, we know how hard it is to write a novel, and who better to understand that than authors themselves?

Meet The Team

May Dawney

May Dawney

Owner & Art Director

May is an author, a developmental editor, a graphics artist, and a marketing and social media specialist. She founded Eos Publishing as a solution to her own desire to publish frequently, but her inability to do so with traditional publishers, whose large overheads and long waiting times prevented them from giving her that option. She still publishes with traditional publishers as well, but enjoys the freedom of indie publishing.

Michele Droga

Michele Droga

Editor

Michele has been an avid reader since childhood, and she never went anywhere without a book in her hand. In grade school, she was the nerdy kid who didn’t want to go outside for recess; instead, she went to the library to write stories. Michele’s keen eye for detail also became obvious: she was the last person picked for kickball, but the first person chosen for spelling bees.

For fifteen years, Michele taught Hebrew School in synagogues. During that time, she discovered the world of lesbian fanfiction, and it changed her life. She joined the online community and met writers from around the world. She began to work as a beta reader and editor, and, eventually, married one of those writers.

Recently, Michele decided to “go pro” doing what she has done for a long time – helping writers strengthen, finesse, and polish stories. She has worked with authors of science fiction, fantasy, contemporary fiction, historical fiction, and short stories.

Michele lives in Tampa, Florida, and still spends most of her time with a book (or e-book!) in her hand. She’s excited to join Eos Publishing so she can use her perfectionism and love of words to help authors build worlds for women.

Editor

C. is a writer, a content and line editor, and at the moment a BSc Student in computer science, because we all need a day job and she wanted to change carriers. She’s been editing and writing freelance for many years, and while she’s a passionate world builder and fanfic writer, she remains a very private person.
