Manga and Romance Blog Hop

Welcome to the Manga and Romance Blog Hop, celebrating all things Yaoi and MM Romance! The hop will run from today, June 22nd to Sunday June 24th.

For those of you who may not know me, my name is Charlie and I'm an author of MM Historical Romance set mainly in the 1920s and 1930s.

My heroes range from whiskey guzzling, grumpy Private Investigators to refined English Tea House proprietors. From the Jazzy 20s to the Big Band 30s, my fellas get themselves into all sorts of trouble, but I guarantee there will always be a handsome fella at his side--though he might just be the source of that trouble.

There's also plenty of romance, humor, and even some naughtiness. From Prohibition agents chasing down bootleggers, to Legionnaires trekking across dusty deserts, I love writing in these eras long gone. I love the music, the fashion, the movies, everything! You might be asking, what does MM Romance have to do with yaoi? Sure, they are two very distinct art forms with their own sets of rules, but there IS one key element they both share: boys in love.

I know when it comes to my characters, no matter how some of them might fight it, they all give in to love. They might go kicking and screaming, they might just dreamily throw themselves into it without so much as dipping a toe to test the waters, but in the end, they get their happily ever after, and  that's a big part of why I write MM Romance--to see these fellas fall in love.

Now although my writing didn't stem from yaoi, I've always enjoyed reading yaoi manga and watching the animes, with my ultimate favorite always being Junjou Romantica. It's sweet, funny, and I love the artwork--not to mention Misaki is ADORABLE. It's no surprise that my second favorite is by the same folks,  Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi. I've read so much yaoi manga, I've kind of lost count! What are some of your favorites?

Onto the hop!
