    Fair question — and to put your mind at ease, there's just been the two free comics links sent out so far. πŸ™‚

    But it's always been our intention to offer more free comics which is why I wrote the high-school BL story Tough in shorter 35-page chapters so that I could have more free comics to send out and in more regular intervals. While I might try making some of the later chapters of that story for-pay downloads to help offset costs, the first chapters will definitely be free. And I'm working with a team of artists on that comic who are fairly quick. The plan is to have the first chapter come out this Spring with a new chapter available for download every 4 months or so.

    I haven't given any specific dates for the release of that first chapter because I don't want to make any promises I can't be sure I'll be able to keep (high quality art takes the time it's going to take, y'know?). And I haven't sent out extra emails because, well, I hate spam and if I'm not offering something really awesome to my subscribers, then I don't want to bug them. (This may be foolish — I probably should send out emails every now and then just to remind people that work is on the way, but I figure my blog serves that purpose and did I mention how much I hate spam? πŸ™‚ )

    I humbly ask for your patience. We are very hard at work on our comics. I spend hours a day, every day working on our stories and with our artists — we have very good stuff coming. If you like what you are seeing here on our blog and what you see in the downloads you've already viewed, then I promise the new stuff we're working on you'll like even more.

    All we want to do is give fans like you the best, smartest, sexiest and most fun yaoi you've ever seen. It's taking a bit longer than I expected to get thing finished, but once our production workflow is set up, things should run more smoothly. It's my deepest hope you and all our other supporters will find our work worth the wait. πŸ™‚

    Alex

  2. You said that you have only sent out two free yaoi. I only received A Shot in the Dark and the sneak preview of Artifice. Is the sneak preview part of what you have sent out or am i missing something?

  3. @Itasasu

    Nope, you aren't missing anything. πŸ™‚ Right now, though, we are coloring the first chapter of Tough — that chapter should be done by end of April and that will be another free comic, Then, God willing, we should be coming out with future chapters on a fairly regular basis, ideally every 4 months or so — and I know for sure right now that PDF downloads for Chapters 2 and 3 will be free for subscribers as well — so there should be some more good stuff soon.

    I hope you enjoyed what you've seen so far and that you'll like what we'll be sending out in the near future. Look for another free comic in a few months — the work on Tough is something we're very proud of and I hope you'll like it. πŸ™‚

  4. Hi, I checked out "Shot in the Dark" and it was fun! πŸ™‚ There was a nice dash of irony, a witty screw-ball villain, some good action and the romance was just right.

    That said, will Artifice be sold as an "online subscription webcomic" or will it be published as a book? I do hope that I can get it in the former because it can be a real hassle to deal with the customs and censorship board.

  5. @Yuri21

    Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind reaction to "A Shot in the Dark". It made my night. πŸ™‚

    "Artifice" will absolutely be available as a download as well as being available in print form. As I've said (somewhere else, can't remember now), the plan is to have it be the first "for-pay" download. I'm still deciding on the logistics for that, but the current plan is to absolutely have both digital and print versions of "Artifice". And I'll definitely let the Yaoi 911 News & Downloads subscribers know when it's ready.

    I hope you'll enjoy our other upcoming free comics for Tough as much as you enjoyed "A Shot in the Dark." Please come back here and let me know what you think of those as well.

    Thanks again for taking the time to comment,

    Alex

  6. @Alex:

    "Thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind reaction to “A Shot in the Dark”. It made my night. :-)"

    Awww, sure no problem! πŸ™‚

    I'll be looking forward to the news about Artifice, then. *grins*

    Oh, I just saw Tough(the first 12 pages) and you really captured the whole "homophobic" thing very well. Why do some of those boys have to look so pretty though for a bunch of gay bashers? πŸ™ And the poor gay man… why's he so quiet? I got a guess about it… Don't tell me he's mute?

  7. @Yuri21

    Why do some of those boys have to look so pretty though for a bunch of gay bashers?

    Heh. Well, this being a yaoi book, it is important that the boys be pretty — even the evil ones. That said, I've been surprised with the reaction people have had to Kevin and Bruce — all the women I've shown the comic to have just loved those guys to pieces. Kevin, in particular, is quite popular. If there's enough demand, I might just have to have a bad-boy side story… We'll see… πŸ˜‰

    And the poor gay man… why’s he so quiet? I got a guess about it… Don’t tell me he’s mute?

    LOL! That's awesome! That would be some good drama and it would be fun to be vague here and say "You'll have to just find out" – but I don't want to be that big a tease. πŸ˜€

    No, he's not mute. He just knows he's not going to be able to talk his way out of this situation – and doesn't want to give these jerks the satisfaction of him playing along. Instead, he's trying to think of some way to escape – and that's where all his brain power is going.

    But I like the way you think! Tough looks to be the most "traditional" yaoi book I'm going to make and having a mute character would definitely fit into that. But no – Rob just knows there are some situations you can't talk your way out of….

    Thank you again for your great comments. πŸ™‚

  8. Awww, a bad boy story would be good. One which focuses on either Kevin(that's the leader, right?) or Bruce or both. Ahhh… I'm too greedy. But what wouldn't be the fun in having some closeted characters? But Kevin is some eyecandy all right.

    Oh well, you evil evil boys… I wonder what kinda punishment would be right for them. Hmmm… maybe being hung from a rope while a pack of ravenous monkeys screech and eye them. Nah that's too much of a punishment. :p

    That's true. Why bother talking your way out unless you're Mr Diplomat or know some martial arts? Think Rob, think! And don't get hit: it's bound to hurt like hell. πŸ™

  9. @silverstone

    Thank you for your interest in our comics. πŸ™‚ When you sign up for the Yaoi 911™ News and Downloads mailing list and click on the confirmation email that is sent to you, you are sent an email with links to our free downloads. I don't see your email on the mailing list, though. Did you fill out the form on THIS page? If you did, could you please try filling in the form on this page one more time, just to make sure there wasn't a computer glitch?

    If, after you do this, you still have not received the links, please let me know. I'll do my best to help! πŸ™‚

    Thanks!

  10. I'm sorry to hear that! But I do see your email on the the Yaoi 911™ News and Downloads list so I know you filled out the form on this page. Maybe my email service is being slow (or maybe the Welcome Email wound up in your spam folder – adding our email address announce_list at yaoi911.com to your Address Book should solve that problem, if that's what's going on. πŸ™‚ )

    In any case, I have just sent the links directly to your email. I really hope you enjoy them!

    Cheers,

    Alex

  11. hey, im just new in this yaoi thing i haven´t gotten the free story, maybe i dont know how to look 4 it. i'd aprecciate if u could send it to me. mail it at [EMAIL REMOVED TO PROTECT COMMENTER]. please! and let me know everything about yaoi,i just bought some stories and they were awsome, those stories allow myself to express what i really feel. i love yaoi.

    hope the hear from u soon.

    bye!!!!

  12. @akizuki

    The link to the free comic would have been sent to you in the Welcome Email after you subscribed to the mailing list on this page. It usually takes about an hour or so for my email service to send you the Welcome Email after you've confirmed your subscription.

    I do see your email on our list so just in case it somehow got lost in the Internets, I've sent you the links directly as well.

    I hope you enjoy them! πŸ˜€

  13. @JRBrown

    Yep – I was the one who created and listed the Japanese version of "A Shot in the Dark" (you can also find the link for the Japanese DLSite on the bottom of our Japanese language page). Thus, yes, I do get a (very tiny) cut.

    I created Japanese version of the story to test the waters and see how well a Japanese e-comic might do. (Although, I'll admit that I also made it to have some of our work to share with Japanese creators whom I admire. πŸ˜€ ) I had planned to translate all of our comics into Japanese, but right now I'm not sure how economically feasible that is. If there were huge interest I would definitely do it, but right now the response (while positive) has been mild. If interest increases, though, then I might reconsider.

    I do thank you for bringing it up here, though. It'd been a little while since I checked out the English language DLSite and I notice that someone has recently posted a new comment on the comic — and that was fun to read. πŸ˜‰

  14. ALex:

    I just wanted to thank u, i got the comic and i enjoyed it! please let me know where i can find more information ans stories, is it true that i can find Naruto but in Yaoi Version?

  15. @boi3324

    Gosh, sorry to hear that. I've sent the links directly to your email address. Just in case, double-check your spam folder to make sure emails from us aren't getting filtered so you won't miss out on future comics that we send. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for your interest in our work!

  16. I really enjoyed A Shot In The Dark and I am hoping you'll do a sequel or even a prequel. The characters had quite a bit of depth for such a short story. I also like your site. I found it a while ago and just came back while looking through my bookmarks. Keep the great yaoi coming, please.

  17. @starchaser27

    Well, heck — thank you very much for the props! Always nice to hear back from folks who enjoyed our work. πŸ˜€

    And…. the first chapter of Tough is very , very close to being ready to send…. I don't dare to give a date at this point, as life has a way of, well, getting in the way….. but it's close, so be on the lookout for it in your Inbox this Fall. As for a sequel/prequel to "A Shot in the Dark", I've always said that if there is enough interest, I'd do it. I'll consider this another vote in favor. πŸ™‚

    Anyway, thanks for taking the time to let me know your thoughts! I hope to see you back here soon! πŸ˜€

  18. I've been advertising for you again Alex, just so you know~! ^_^ I know I've been MAI for a while, I just kind of found myself drowning in school work… Then again, that's what happens when you get sick for two weeks and a half… Ugh, all that make up work was killer! But I should be back more often now! You are still as awesome as ever~! ^_^ Yeah I know, I'm a kissass, but I'm an HONEST kissass. I missed this cite more than you will ever know. How have you been though?

    Good to talk to you again~

    Jade "Ris-chan"

  19. @Ris-chan

    Hey Jade — good to hear from you — and glad to hear you've recovered from your illness. πŸ™‚

    And thank you for putting out the word on our comics! Pages 1-24 of Chapter One Tough (and all of Ch 2) are now colored, so we're finally getting close to sending the next one out — very exciting. Been working hard on getting everything lettered (all the words in the word balloons and sound effects and so forth…) So, that's what I've been up to — dotting all the "i"'s and crossing all the "t"'s getting that first chapter ready for our 10,000 strong mailing list. It's a lot of work but very satisfying. πŸ™‚

  20. @Alex Woolfson

    Heh heh, yeah, upper respriatory infection, no fun >_< I likes to breathe! XD

    No problem! I was thinking of Advertising on GaiaOnline for you, but I don't think any advertisement I could make would do you justice.

    Awesome possum~! I look forward to seeing that on the shelf! I'll ask for it for my birthday XD (Yeah, I know, I should buy it myself, but I'm saving up for Collage). Catch yah later~

  21. @Alex Woolfson

    Yeah, upper respiratory infection, no fun… I like to breathe XD I've always gotten sick easily though so I'm used to it I suppose.

    No problem~! I'm just looking forward to you publishing them so that I can get the books~! Maybe for my birthday~! I'll get my family or friends to buy me them (I would, but I'm far from rich so… It wont work >_> )

    I would advertise for you on GaiaOnline (since that's my favorite place in the world to be) but first off I can't access it from school, and second, I don't think I could create a banner worthy of your site and books and all… T_T Sorry~!

    God I missed you and this site~ ^_^ Sooo much more relieving than sitting hitting my head on the desk (just kidding, just kidding). Seriously though, I'm more than willing to advertise, because you are totally awesome~! ^_^

    Laters~!

    Jade

  22. Hi Alex, Karla and Winona – Just a quick note: D/L'd "A shot…" loved it! (just one crit tho' – more kissing pleeze! ;-)) I loved the story and artwork (I especially loved the mixed race pairing – Ethan reminded me of my Koran bf)…
    I am a pro artist interested in refocusing my career in graphic novels. Everything I've seen on your site is really impressive and inspiring.. You've got a new Fan – Thanx!! -RC- ^_~

  23. @RadCelt

    Thank you so much, RC! Glad to hear you loved it!

    And yes, I like the mixed race pairings in couples as well, mainly because not every gay guy is white or Japanese, you know? Glad you saw your bf in Ethan — he must be a very sweet guy. πŸ˜‰

    (BTW, I think the request for more kissing is completely reasonable — and, well… the first chapter of Tough which we're sending out on March 1st also is low on the kissing. ::hides in corner:: You see, we're setting up the characters and stuff and want to give readers something to look forward to. But let me tell you that Chapter Two — which is already finished and will be sent out on May 1 — more than makes up for it! Lots 'o kissing. I don't think you'll be disappointed! And Artifice, our first graphic novel scheduled to be released this fall, has kissing and, well, more. I don't think you'll find anything to criticize on the kissing front with that one. Not at all.. πŸ˜‰ )

    Also glad to hear that you found this site inspiring for your own work. We need more talented people creating great guy-on-guy comics. Good luck with the refocusing and when you get your own site set up, please shoot me a link!

    Take care!

    Alex

    1. Oh, Adobe — don't you be hating! πŸ™‚

      Sorry to hear that you're having trouble. Here are two things to try:

      First, I know this might sound silly, but some folks have gotten confused by it. Adobe Reader only reads PDF files. The comic is a PDF, but in order to send it to you safely over the Internet, I had to compress it as a ZIP file. You have to open the ZIP file first to get the PDF. Mac computers automatically open ZIP files, but some Windows PCs don't. If yours doesn't, you need a ZIP application. A good, open-source, free one can be found here:

      http://www.7-zip.org/

      Once you have the ZIP file open, you will see the PDF file. If Adobe won't read it, Adobe Reader might be corrupt or out-of-date. Downloading the latest version fixes most problems. You can download the latest version here:

      http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.h

      Please try those steps and let me know if they fix the problem.

      And thank you very much for your interest in our work! πŸ˜€

  24. Hi – I am a newsletter/download subscriber. I got the notice email that 'Tough' Chapter 1 was available, but getting the comic has been 'Tough' in its self. I was notified I'll get a email with a link, but that didn't happen – I can't seem to get the comic – can you help? :-{ thankx!

  25. @personifyingowned

    I totally understand. You should only include the information that you feel safe sharing. And I'm glad you asked — it's a good question.

    The reason I ask you to enter your first and last name is so we can include them when we send you our emails. It's to help you remember that you actually wanted to hear from us and that we're not just some strangers. (It also helps to keep our emails from accidentally winding up in your spam folder — your email program doesn't like it when you're just addressed as an email address. It makes it seem like a bot just scraped your email address off of a web site.) And we don't give out subscriber information to anyone else, ever — it's just for us and our email service.

    But if you don't want to use your real name, that's absolutely, totally fine — it won't hurt our feelings. Just promise you won't think we're weird when we send you emails calling you "Naruto Uzumaki". πŸ˜‰ (Just be extra sure to add our email address to your address book so we don't get marked as junk by your email program. And it's a good idea to choose a name that will help your remember that you actually signed up with us and that we're not spam — that's really the whole point of the name thing — so best not to just pound the keys at random, better to choose something personal that a spammer wouldn't use. And BTW, you can always change your name later — an "Update Your Profile" link is at the bottom of every email.)

    Fair enough? πŸ™‚

  26. @RC

    Hey RC! Sorry to hear you've been having trouble. I think I know what happened and I'll do my best to help out! πŸ˜€

    I do see you on the newsletter list, but I also see that (based on the time you posted this comment) you actually hadn't received our newsletter yet — what you had received was an emailed version of the blog post I put up in advance of sending out the newsletter! (I can see you actually signed up for *two* Yaoi 911 lists — our News & Downloads newsletter and our emailed blog posts mailing list). That's why there wasn't a direct download link in that email.

    Right now, my email service provider is sending out the actual Yaoi 911 News & Downloads newsletters with the download links to everyone on the list. They space them out over 48 hours, so I'm not sure when you'll actually get yours, but it should be before March 1st.

    But all that's just explanation — let's get you the comic!

    You actually don't need to wait for our newsletter to download "Tough". Our comics are made available at our new Store as free downloads for subscribers as soon as I post on our blog. If you're a subscriber, you can create a new account at our store using your subscriber email address, Add To Cart a free comic and when you Checkout, you'll be able to download it for free. The link at our Store for Tough is here:
    https://store.yaoi911.com/free-comics/tough-chapt

    If you don't want to have to wait for the Newsletter to get to you with the links, you can go there right now and download the comic. But the Newsletter with the links should be sent to you soon — so if that feels like a hassle, not to worry, direct links are on the way!

    (And in the future, I think I'll do this a little differently. I had expected our emailed blog posts to go out tomorrow night, not tonight –so I goofed a little bit. I'm very sorry for the confusion!)

    Please let me know if that solves the problem!

    Alex

  27. @Nanani

    Gosh, I'm sure you aren't doing anything wrong — but if you're clicking the links in the blog post, the only one that will let you download the comic, is the one linking to our Store.
    https://store.yaoi911.com/free-comics/tough-chapt

    Because you’re a subscriber, you can create a new account at our store using your subscriber email address, Add To Cart a free comic and when you Checkout, you'll be able to download it for free.

    But not to worry, as a subscriber, direct links to the PDF file are on their way to you! We have over 11,000 people on our list so our email service provider takes about 48 hours to get through them all. But everyone on the list should get an email with the links by March 1st. So, the links are on their way! πŸ˜€

    If there is any other way I can help, please let me know!

    Alex
