Woot! You’ve finished writing that book and you’re ready to strut on down to Publication Station.

Or are you?

At some point, you’re going to have to take a step back and have another set of eyeballs well, eye-bang your material. No author wants to lose a reader or receive a DNF rating due to sub-quality work. 

If you decide to become a member of the                              Book Club, know that you will be working with someone who has been an avid reader of adult romance fiction for over thirty years (and HELLA LOVES this genre) or has a personal interest in the non-fiction topics mentioned below.

I’m your last line of defense before you send your book baby off into the Big Wide Publishing World. Let’s make sure your mistakes don’t cockblock your progress. 


I like my heroes flawed and drop-dead gorgeous, my heroines strong and feisty (even if that doesn’t happen until the end), and the sexy times hot enough to make me change my underwear (it’s happened).


I specialize in steamy short stories and/or serials up to 15K words MAX. If your manuscript doesn’t fit within one of the below categories, then I will not be a good fit for you.

Subgenres I love to read

  • Contemporary

  • Paranormal (shifter and/or vampire only. Similar to Lynsay Sands, J.R. Ward, or Shelly Laurenston)

  • Suspense (similar to Anna Hackett or Susan Stoker)

  • Interracial/Multicultural

  • Erotic (no BDSM, same-sex, menage, or reverse harem)


  • M/F couples in the primary hero/heroine roles (but I'm an ally for LGBTQ+ supporting characters).

  • No end-of-book cliffhangers (as in "Find out what happens in the next book!"). I want a HEA or an HFN (Happy For Now).

  • I like Light MC. No dark motorcycle club Sons of Anarchy kind of shit.

  • No large age gap (not a fan of 20+ year differences)/Sugar Daddy/Sugar Baby shit.



Do you write non-fiction?

While my specialty is short story indie romance fiction, I'd be open to reading non-fiction material up 15K words MAX on the following topics:

  • Natural healing (in all its many forms)

  • Plant-based diet

  • Living abroad (particularly from a BIPOC point of view)

  • Sustainable lifestyle

  • Tiny house living

How I Roll

My goal is to build long-term relationships, which is why all prospective GoddessBoss Book Club members are required to submit your complete book file. This will allow me to determine the status of your material and the type of services you really need. Check out the GoddessBoss Book Club page to see the books I've edited.

  • ​Books in a series or anthology collection are considered individual submissions.


  • Additional read-throughs will be considered a new project and charged at original rates.

  • If I'm intrigued, I'll send you a draft quote based on the word count you provided in the inquiry form. I say "draft" because I know that by the time I get the actual manuscript, you might've written more.

  • You like what you see? Coolio. I'll send a contract and invoice for a 50% deposit. This gets you on my schedule.

  • After editing is complete, you'll receive the invoice for the final payment. Once it's been paid, your file will be uploaded to your secret-coded folder for your review.


*I do not accept work that contains graphic or disturbing content.


**I do not offer Rush options.
