Aurora Publishing Announces Borders Exclusive for Chika Shiomi¹s Latest
Series, Queen of Ragtonia!
Torrance, CA, March 16, 2009 ‹ AURORA PUBLISHING, INC., the innovative manga
publishing company that debuted its first releases in 2007, announced a
BORDERS EXCLUSIVE  for the release of CHIKA SHIOMI¹S QUEEN OF RAGTONIA, a
chilling and provocative shojo horror/fantasy series currently running in
Japan.  Filled with suspense, adventure, drama and the emotional
rollercoaster a young princess must undergo when faced with a tragic past
and an uncertain destiny, QUEEN OF RAGTONIA makes its highly anticipated
debut in the United States.  After a string of top-selling hit titles both
in Japan and in the U.S. such as CANON, NIGHT OF THE BEASTS, and YURARA,
CHIKA SHIOMI'S QUEEN OF RAGTONIA Volume 1, rated ³T²(Teen) for ages 13 and
above, will be in BORDERS Bookstores in March 16, 2009 and will retail for
$10.95.

CHIKA SHIOMI'S QUEEN OF RAGTONIA is the noted mangaka¹s remake of a
doujinshi

(fan comic work) that she created prior to her professional debut as a manga
artist in Japan.  First appearing in the pages of Shodensha's Mugen
Anthology Gensou Collection under the Japanese title Ragtonia, the fantasy
thriller depicts the riveting story of Princess Falna.  She was the only
member of her kingdom¹s royal family to escape the ruthless Necromancer¹s
bloody attack that took the lives of her family and every one who tried to
protect her.  This turned her into a member of the Ragtonia, a person who
has had a part of their body stolen by the Necromancer. On the brink of
death, Falna is saved when she makes a pact with the spirit of a dead
soldier from her kingdom.  Joining forces with a sword-wielding giant and
possessing the magical demon-busting sword, the Igliese, she begins her
quest to kill the Necromancer, release the Ragtonia and free her country
from horror and destruction.  All the elements of drama, romance, and
adventure that made CHIKA SHIOMI an international success are masterfully
woven together in this compelling new shojo fantasy series.

³CHIKA SHIOMI¹S amazing talent appeals to both shoujo and shonen readers,
and her latest work is sure to captivate fans of all genres in North
America. We are very thrilled with the exclusive deal with Borders, for they
are the biggest supporter of manga and know how manga works very well², said
Nobuo Kitawaki, president of AURORA PUBLISHING, INC. The exclusive will be
for 4 months, and the title is going to be available at any other retailers
in August, 2009.

Deux Press, the yaoi imprint of Aurora Publishing, has picked up the title Cigarette Kisses by Nase Yamato.  Originally, Boysenberry Books, the yaoi imprint of Broccoli Books, was to release this title.  However, with Broccoli Books shutting down, the title will be dropped from their list.  Lucky for all of the Nase Yamato fans, Deux Press (who is already releasing her Take Me to Heaven in January 2009) was able to acquire the rights to the title, and fans can expect the manga to be released sometime in the second half of 2009.
