Before people get on my case on what I am about to say, this is a matter of total preference...

I am hoping that more publishers will start publishing their non-yaoi/non-yuri stuff now that e-readers are becoming more popular. I realize that there are a few exceptions out there, but unless I go on to a site that has scanlations, I feel like my only choices for my particular e-reader are in either of these two realms, and I really have no interest in it.

I'm excited to see that they're putting these two titles out in print format. As much as I love the convenience of being able to read things online/on an e-reader, I much prefer actually holding books in my hands.

That said, I like the cover art for Sleepless Nights. I'm definitely going to be checking it out.

I hope they pass through the "publish yuri stuff" phase that you are assuming first. If they jump straight from "yaoi" to "non-yaoi, non-yuri" without passing yuri and collecting my dollars, I would be annoyed.

Which is your ereader? If I scrape together the bucks to by another ereader, I want to be sure to buy this one that has boatloads of yuri titles available.

You mean, from Digital Manga Publishing, which with their Juné imprint is a leading Yaoi publisher in the US?

Hmmm, good question. No obvious answer comes to mind. Valentine's day?

Every email notice I received from DMP was another offering of BL and/or Yaoi, so I unsubscribed. Are those and Yuri the only titles they're making money off of?

That aside is what raised my original question ... where are all these DMP yuri titles of which you speak? Okazu has started accumulating a list of yuri titles available outside of Japan, and there's 20 in the list at the moment, 8 in print (or in press) in the US: 3 ALC, 3 Seven Seas, 1 Infinity Studios, 1 Viz. And the 3 digital entries for the US are JManga, not eComics.
