kris & tam’s yaoi version of pass-the-parcel

Here’s the deal. Tam and I were discussing the impact of toy poodle flu on our reading habits. I mentioned I’d found that pretty pictures of boy love held my interest and asked her if she wanted to try some. Tam replied “I’ll try anything once”. I said “*no shit* yay” and sent a yaoi 101 (or yaoi for virgins) care package to Canada.

Now Tam is stuck with yaoi manga and novels that she wants to get rid of in favour of much needed bookshelf space and I’m ready to send off another package to her… so what to do??

“Can we give them away?” thoughteth us. This was followed by much shruggery before we decided why the heck not.

Half-arsed Rules

It’s first come, first served with dibs only allowed for one book per person (got to at least try to even up the odds a bit ;)). If there are any left overs after 24 hours then by all means double dip!

Don’t forget to put your email addy in the comment because there is no bloody way I’ll be wasting my valuable reading time trying to follow you up. Also, we won’t tell people who you are, where you live, blah, blah. Tam promises not to show up on anyone’s doorstep in the dead of night and I already have one stalkee on my list (ie Sean). Another person would be sooo passé.

Anyhoo, once you’ve finished the book, it’s up to you whether you keep it or pass it on. If you want to share the love or hate (it’s a mixed batch so consider yourself warned!), you can either let me know and we’ll have another giveaway here or you can send it on to someone else yourself.

Below are the covers and blurbs so peeps can make an informed decision:

Luckily, Kazuto had his wits about him to stipulate only a month of servitude…This fall-in-love-with-my-master story full of titillating love arrives in Kae Maruya’s highly-anticipated debut comic!

There’s no telling what hanky panky they’ll be up to!

Caged Slave

Afterwards, he accepts to meet him again in the same room the following week, despite the fact he doesn’t even know his name. As their secret encounters continue, he finds himself falling in love and is worried that it may not last. Simultaneously, he’s scouted by a business-talent head-hunter and receives an interesting work offer. But when he goes to meet them… his new boss is none other than his secret lover! (This is a novel.)

Saihoshi

The spoiled Prince Anel must travel without military escort to a neighboring kingdom where tensions run high. Sastre, an honorable Guardian, is brought in to be Anel’s only protection for the journey. Anel is enchanted by his noble bodyguard, but Sastre becomes more interested in Kaleth, the spirited servant and lover of Prince Anel. Kaleth is forced to disguise himself as the prince to be a decoy for his enemies. Sastre duty is to protect Prince Anel, but in his heart he’d rather keep the decoy safe from harm.

Oh, and to make it even funner, if you intend to pass it on write your name and location inside the cover that way people can see how far and wide the books travel. Well, I think it’s fun. *pouts*

Are you ready??? GO!!!

Any minute now. No rush. Did we mention it was free stuff??

Where’s Jen when you need her.

    Kris, I've got Hanky Panky but I don't know who it goes to now. Help?

  2. Kris says:

    Hey Lily, why not see if Tracy wants it?? If she doesn't maybe you can put it up for grabs on your blog? I think you have some different readers to me and there might be someone who wants to play pass-the-yaoi with us. 🙂

  3. Ok, so I just found out about this awesomeness… and I assume the ball is still rolling?

    Yup, it sure is Miranda. I will send you an email and include the rest of the group so as to get the ball rolling. 🙂

  5. Hi Kris. Wow I'd really like to join in the fun but I'm all the way in Hicksville, South East Asia where all the mail in the village go to that guy who owns the “restaurant” (used loosely here) down the street.

    salina *pouts*

  6. Kris says:

    That's such a bummer, Salina.

    Let me know regardless if you want to take the 'risk' of dealing with postage and I'll see what we can send out to you. Let's face it I myself live in the back of beyond, although luckily I have my own postal address. LOL.
