FICTION - Steamy short stories and/or serials no more than 15K words MAX.

Subgenres I love to read:
~ Contemporary
~ Paranormal (shifter and/or vampire only. Similar to Lynsay Sands, J.R. Ward, or Shelly Laurenston)
~ Suspense
~ 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 style stories.
~ No large age gap (not a fan of 20+ year differences)/Sugar Daddy/Sugar Baby.

"Celise is one of the most professional, most engaging, and most entertaining people and businesses I've ever worked with. I would suggest her services to anyone who wants a polished and sparkling manuscript."
