After much discussion, Jordan and I have decided to suspend our BL coverage at YaoiSuki indefinitely. Between my new job and apartment, and a score of complications for Jordan, we simply no longer have the time to dedicate to our regular news and reviews lineup (a fact no doubt noticed by many of you).
The site will continue to be here for those who wish to go through our past reviews, check on some news item that happened, con coverage, forums, etc. But neither of us will be updating for the foreseeable future.
Will we ever come back? That I don't know. We've loved running this site for the last two years (we even missed our 2nd birthday this year-- that's how bad we are now!), and we're sad that we have to set it aside now. So it's certainly not impossible that we'll be back! But for the time being, the site will remain silent.
If you want to keep up on yaoi-related news, I've extracted a promise from our oft-mentioned friend gia to cover the BL news as much as possible, both on her current site at giapet.net and at her upcoming site (I *will* make a quick post when that's going). She does a fantastic job with news coverage in general and I know she follows BL as well, so I'm sure she'll do a boffo job.
I also want to make a quick shout-out to the publishers, especially Digital Manga Publishing, DramaQueen, Yaoi Press, Central Park Media, Deux Publishing, Iris Print, Boysenberry, Yen Press, Kitty Media, Blu Manga...oh wait, that's pretty much all of them, isn't it? Each and every company embraced us and offered information and review copies and we were continually (and pleasantly) surprised by their support.
...Well, I guess that's about it, so...thanks for all the good times, guys. You are the ones who made all the work we've done over the last two years fun and worthwhile, and we'll miss you. So don't be a stranger, ok?
♥ Jen and Jordan
