Yaoi-Con!


I have no idea why on Amazon this says Art Not Final because I own this book and I can tell you that this is indeed what the cover looks like. Strange. But anyway, as this is currently my favorite manga, the cover for Your Love Sickness is here to announce that yours truly is going to Yaoi-Con again this year. And I can't wait! It was so fun last year, I had the best time. Meeting fans, meeting authors, and buying way, way too many books. I realize that I've bought a ton of them this year:
The notables have been:

*Your Love Sickness by Kuku (loved it-I've read it a gazillion times, the fox gods are so great, especially Aura)

*Intense Rain by Fuwa (which has been out awhile I guess but I just discovered it)

*Cute Devil by Madarame (non-con in this so if it's not your kink beware)

*Scarlet by Madarame (upping the ante on the non-con to actual pain, I didn't like this one and I'm pretty forgiving)

*Endless Comfort by Sakura (really good, sweet and hot and the non-con is not between the two main characters. It's about getting over heartbreak as both characters need to forgive themselves, one for what he thinks are his failings and another fro thinking he was weak. It's really great, totally fleshed out story with growth. Can't say enough good things about it)

*Croquis by Takanaga (I enjoyed, it's light and fluffy)

*Stray Cat by Halco (I really loved this, it's about Kaoru who is a stray cat himself, gets described like one a lot and about Yohei who loves him. There's a scene where Kaoru is saying why dogs are better and Yohei says that that to earn the lvoe of a cat and the fact that they're all independent and different is why he loves them, why he's a true cat person. It's why he can love and keep Kaoru. It's so cute, and then one night they get their signals crossed and Kaoru ends up wearing cat ears...if you love yaoi you should pick this one up.

At the con hopefully Finder 4 will be out by Yamane, I have the other 3 and I really hope there's closure. Although waiting for The Crimson Spell volume 3 is driving me nuts too. I realize that, holy crap, I own a lot of yaoi. Oh, I got Yellow 2 Omnibus as well. Got it the second it came out. But all this is to say that I hope to see you all at Yaoi-Con! I can't wait!

Yaoi-Con 2011 will take place October 21st through 23, 2011 at The San Francisco Airport Marriott hotel in Burlingame, California.

  1. YC was a great time! Very cool to meet you. :)

    This year, I'll be going to GayRomLit in New Orleans, which I think is a week or so before YC.

  3. Ooooh, the envy!
    Would love to go to Yaoi-Con too :(

    Now, regarding Yamane's Finder, if you don't want any spoilers, don't read this next one:

    I'm sorry to tell you, but there won't be any closure until volume 5!! But when it gets there, it's so good :D
    I'm currently eagerly awaiting for volume 6 :)
