Conventions news!

Convention season is here again and Blind Eye Books will be busy! To start off we have Yaoi-Con back from its 2013 hiatus. America’s premier boys’ love convention returns to San Francisco September 12-14 and we will be in
the dealers' room.
The following week we have Gay Romance North West taking place at the Seattle Public Library. September 20th is the date to come meet-up with other MM authors, publishers and readers. GRNW’s sophomore year promises to be even more fun than the first with expanded programming, more events and more chances to have fun with fellow writers and MM enthusiasts.
And the weekend of October 11, Blind Eye Books will be at the Seattle Convention Center for our first appearance at Geek Girl Con. As geeks ourselves we’re excited to be participating in this one of a kind event.

We hope to see you there!

"YaoiCon is a one-of-a-kind 18+ convention for fans of all things yaoi. Founded in 2001, YaoiCon has been delighting attendees since with unique programming and a fan-centric atmosphere. From a celebrated Guest of Honor to fan and industry panels to the iconic and not-to-be-missed Bishounen Auction, YaoiCon is THE place for dedicated yaoi fans. Come join us this year at the lovely Hyatt Regency SFO in Burlingame, California, for three days of risque and friendly fun!" ©YaoiCon, 2014

Gay Romance Northwest Meet-Up (GRNW)

Seattle, September 20, 2014


Ginn Hale, Astrid Amara and Nicole Kimberling will be attending GRNW as panelists.

Panel (2:00pm – 2:50pm) – Writing the Rainbow: Exploring Queer Romance Writing (Seattle Central Public Library, 1000 4th Ave., Microsoft Auditorium)




Born to privilege, gifted in languages and spells, Neil Franklin has planned his brilliant future—from academic accolades to a proper marriage—and is intent upon upholding his family name and honor. The sudden death of his parents shatters all of that, leaving Neil and his younger sister beggared and orphaned.

When Neil’s estranged uncle offers him a bargain that will save him and his sister from debtor’s prison or exile, Neil eagerly agrees. Handing over the family grimoire as collateral for their debt, Neil devotes himself to working as a teacher for wayward youths at a charity school high in the clouds.

But Highfell Hall is not the charity Neil imagines it to be and the young men there aren’t training for the dull lives of city clerks. Amidst the roaring engines and within the icy stone halls, machinations and curious devices are at work. And one man, the rough and enigmatic Leofa, holds the key to the desire that Neil has fled from all his life and a magic as dangerous as treason.

The Boy with the Painful Tattoo

by Josh Lanyon

October 5, 2014

Published by JustJoshin Publishing

Book #3 in the Holmes & Moriarity series
Contemporary Mystery, Amateur Sleuth, Comedy

Summary: It's moving day at Chez Holmes. Somehow, against Kit's better instincts, he and J.X. are setting up house together. But while J.X. is off at a writing conference, Kit unpacks a crate that should contain either old books or new china. It doesn't. Within the mounds of green Styrofoam popcorn is a dead body. A very dead body.
There goes the neighborhood.
