Don't know if this is allowed or not, but since it is just an FYI, hopefully it is okay.  

June is currently running a Kickstarter for 4 yaoi Manga by Sakira: Wild Boyfriend, Boyfriend in Heat, Sailor Men and Don't Rub Yourself Against My Ass! The kickstarter has been funded, so these WILL be printed and all stretch goals have been met as well.  Lots of add on goodies are available to different pledge tiers (posters, postcards, swag, etc). However, these titles will not be available afterword according to June. At this time the ONLY way to get them is to go through this kickstarter campaign as they will only be printing the number of books to go to the kickstarter backers!  So this is your only opportunity to get them!  In addition, there is a mini-restock of sold out, out of print yaoi mangas available to the kickstart backers ONLY.  Titles include Seven Days (both books), That Was Good, Hey, Sensei!, Hey Class President, all 8 volumes of Tyrant Falls in Love, No Touching at All, and more. A rare opportunity to get these hard to find out of print mangas (that tend to go for hundreds on Amazon!).  The campaign ends FEBRUARY 4th, so if you are going to participate you only have two weeks left. Find all titles and details at: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitalmanga/publish-sakira-bara-yaoi-titles?ref=email

Thank you so much!!! After debating for days if I was going to throw in, I am so in on this lol! I figure if I don't end up loving the yaoi I'm getting I can always pass them on through here or to friends etc. =) Thanks for the tip off!

You're welcome!  I'm a backer myself and have ordered a bunch (there goes the tax refund!)  As a die hard yaoi fan I try to keep up when things are available. Thought others wouldn't mind knowing about it before the deadline. I personally love Sakira, her stuff is more bara (no girly ukes) but not overly (some bara goes a bit overboard on the macho uke trope IMO).   And they are funny!  So I'm really looking forward to getting them. I've also ordered several of the restock books, so many titles that are so hard to find!  I'm really excited to get them.  I've had a lot of people tell me they are happy that I posted this, so I plan to post more as they come along as FYI's.

That would be awesome! I don't often have time to keep up to date especially when it involves shelling out cash but hey like you said that is what tax returns are for. =3 I haven't read any Sakira stuff so I was a little wary just because I'm so picky about yaoi T_T It's like an ocean of it and I catch hold of the few fish I like and that seems to be that... Idk I think you are on to something there though - I think that seeing the super macho uke thing is a bit off putting ( at least for me..) sometimes :/ For me yaoi has to have good plot and good characters and the right pace of romantic involvement lol! I'm super picky >.< But I'm still glad to have had the chance to look over the list - That was the really exciting bit to me~ finding manga that is so far out of print and learning about special reprintings D= ooohhh man~ lol! I've even gone out of my way to contact publishers and authors ( I mean in a polite way.. not a stalker-y pestering them way... ) to see about finding books or if series are going to continue. ^^ Keep up the good work lol! =) I look forward to hearing about anything else you uncover like this =3
