You can find the full listing of in-stock yaoi titles here; http://bit.ly/InStockYaoi For more info about substituting/adding on, check the "Updates" page!
Vol. 1 Snippet: While out on assignment trying to document the illegal activities of the Japanese underworld, photographer Akihito crosses paths with the dark and mysterious leader Asami. Asami takes Akihito captive, in an attempt to subjugate and possess him. But when the son of the Chinese mafia enters demanding evidence that Akihito may have, will Akihito be able to survive being caught in the crosshairs of a deadly underworld feud?
Vol. 2 Snippet: “Akihito, never forget that you belong to me.” When Akihito’s obsession with the perfect shot lands him out of his depth and deep in a criminal trap, who should come to his rescue but…Asami?! But Asami’s own mysterious past soon surfaces once the tale of his fateful first meeting with the gorgeous (and violent) Fei Long is revealed! When the ties that bind begin to unravel, which of these men will strike up a new allegiance…or choose to stand on their own?
Vol. 3 Snippet: “You’re coming with me…even to the depths of hell.” Akihito is finally ready to let down his guard and face his complicated feelings for Asami. But just as the two men surrender to the sweet push-and-pull of unrestrained lust, Akihito falls for a trap set by the ruthless (and gorgeous) Fei Long! One false move may mean lights-out for both Akihito and Asami. Will they outwit Fei Long and live to see another day…together?
Vol. 4 Snippet: “Don’t tell me you actually believe Asami is in love with you?” The gorgeous and devious Fei Long has kidnapped Akihito and taken him all the way to Hong Kong! Though he’s made to perform debasing acts for his “master” at night, Akihito’s mind is filled with thoughts of the wounded Asami. Will the two men finally be reunited…or is Akihito destined to remain a slave?
Vol. 5 Snippet: “Even if I die, Asami will get me back to Japan…won’t he?” Akihito remains an angry hostage in the hands of the menacing Fei Long, and although his captor has developed an obvious fondness for him, Akihito hopes beyond hope that Asami will run to his rescue! With Russian mobsters shadowing their every move, will these power-hungry men finally draw the curtain on their violent feud once and for all?
Vol. 6 Snippet: “The worlds we live in are just too different!” After his imprisonment in Hong Kong, Akihito returns to Japan with Asami…and slips away to freedom! But when a celebrity stalking case gets the hotheaded photographer mixed up with a pure psychopath, Asami’s underworld influence once again seems to be everywhere…
Vol. 7 Snippet: “If you betray me, I’ll track you down…” Akihito splits his time between being Asami’s cook (and housemate) and working as a daredevil photographer. But what will happen when he catches another man weeping on Asami’s perfectly tailored sleeve? Are business and pleasure about to mix in the worst possible way?

Risks and challenges
The main reason we chose kickstarter to fund restocks is simply to speed up the process and lessen the financial burdens. Under normal circumstances, it generally takes a long amount of time and finances to restock titles/series. However, if we had the initial funds to restock at a highly reasonable amount, it'll be a quick and easy process! Hence, kickstarter is the perfect route to gather funds quickly so that we're able to quickly push out restocks. Additionally, through kickstarter, we're able to make extra goodies like tote bags, stuff??, yaoi merchandise (can never have enough yaoi merchandise!! :D)
Complete transparency: The [Fujoshi Committee] will be ready to answer any questions and concerns you may have regarding this project during the entire duration of the pledging period. If we do reach our initial goal of $45,000, we'll be actively updating our facebook/twitter page every month with information regarding the printing progress/timing and images of the merchandise. Plus, we'll always take any backer suggestions and comments into consideration, so please feel free to message us at any time on here/facebook/twitter.
