In September, Be Beautiful set to release Selfish Love: Book 1 and Kizuna – Bonds of Love: Book 2 priced at $15.99 SRP each.

New York, NY (June 30, 2004) – Be Beautiful is pleased to announce its September graphic novel releases: Selfish Love: Book 1 and Kizuna – Bonds of Love: Book 2. Be Beautiful is a brand new graphic novel imprint devoted to romance and relationships aimed at a post-shoujo audience, which includes college age and older female readers. This alluring imprint will release books written and illustrated by some of the most talented female Japanese artists of our time.

Both books are examples of "yaoi"- a popular Japanese publishing genre created by female artists and writers for the enjoyment of female readers, usually featuring relationships involving impossibly beautiful men, and diverse interpretations of the “pure love" concept. Be Beautiful graphic novels offer beautifully illustrated stories of romantic fantasy similar to traditional romance novels.

Be Beautiful books will often contain explicit content, so they are meant for readers 18 years of age and older. These books will be published in a right-to-left page presentation, as the creators originally intended.
