chomiji: Yuya and Mahiro hugging each other and laughing - from Samurai Deeper Kyo (Yuya & Mahiro - friendship)

I hope your day is filled with fun, friendship, and tasty treats!

chomiji: Doa from Blade of the Immortal can read! Who knew? (Doa - books)

So you all may recall my post from just about a year ago, regarding [livejournal.com profile] rachelmanija's and [livejournal.com profile] sartorias's unpublished YA novel. It had several gay characters, and the publishers to whom the authors spoke kept wanting to de-gay the book in a very cowardly and bottom-line-watching fashion: "If it only weren't the first book in the series ... if they were only minor characters ... if it were for an older audience ... " (and so on and so forth).

They have sold the book.

To a very real publisher, Viking (Penguin Group), and the editor will be someone they both like and admire immensely, who has no intention of removing the young gay characters.

Sometimes the good guys win!!!
