I'm going to shamelessly self-promote today. It is my blog, after all, and it's faintly Hellenic. Very faintly, but still. Yesterday, I pre-launched my very own Publishing house, Eos Publishing.

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.

Eos is the rosy-fingered Goddess of the dawn. She and her siblings Helios (the Sun) and Selene (the Moon) are numbered amongst the second-generation Titan Gods within the Greek pantheon. Eos rises into the sky from the river Okeanos at the start of each day, and with her rays of light dispersed the mists of night. Her life story is one of great love, great sadness, and great adventure. She had many lovers, stood up against Zeus, head of the Olympic Gods, and was cheated by him into receiving immortality without eternal youth. She loved, lost, and eventually swiveled into a grasshopper.

She was also her own hero.

She lived.

Eos was depicted either driving a chariot drawn by winged horses or borne aloft on her own wings. She doesn’t rely on anything or anyone to provide for her–a rarity in ancient Hellenic mythology.
Through her trials, tribulations, and victories, Eos represents all we look for in both our authors and the stories they write: independence, courage, strength, and a desire to conquer.

I look forward to this new adventure, and the first manuscripts are already in! If you want to keep updated (and maybe support me a little), find and follow us on social media: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.
