Add Magic to Taste’s Kickstarter is Live!

A photograph of a woman with reddish hair and white skin looking at the viewer. She's wearing a black choker with chains and a semi-transparent black top, and she holds a raspberry-and-frosting topped cupcake in one hand and an old book in the other. Text over this photograph reads: Add Magic to Taste. A Brand new anthology featuring queer tales of food, fluff and magic! Back our Kickstarter now! Ingredients: Sugar, Flour, Butter, Almonds, Cream, Raspberries, Sprinkles, Magic! [end text]. At the bottom of the image is the logo for Duck Prints Press, the slogan "we print diversity," and artwork of the press mascot, a white duck with orange feet and beak.

Duck Prints Press LLC is thrilled to announce that the Kickstarter for our first anthology, Add Magic to Taste, is now live!

For Add Magic to Taste, 20 authors have come together to produce new, original short stories uniting four of our absolute favorite themes: queer relationships, fluff, magic, and coffee shops! Our diverse writers have created an even more diverse collection of stories guaranteed to sweeten your coffee and warm your tart.

Love wlw? So do we!

Love mlm? We’ve got you covered!

Love genderqueer characters? Raise those trans, enby, agender, and other flags high!

Love aces? Same, and we don’t (only) mean playing cards!

Love poly relationships? Hey, we’re sharing a brain!

We won’t say this anthology has it all – there are too many identities in the world for us to fit all of them into one anthology of 20 stories – but if you want some queer fluff and happy feelings, you’ve come to the right place. Add Magic to Taste features characters of different races, ethnicities, sexualities, romanticisms, gender identities, religions, and home nations, united by the common theme of finding someone (or more than one someone) to enjoy a muffin and a cuppa with – for today or for a lifetime, romantically or otherwise!

Each story is never-before-published, approximately 5,000 words long, and features each author’s unique take on our theme. Our beautiful digest-size trade paperback book features cover art by Liz Lee Illustrations (@lizleeillustration on Tumblr – with the potential for more art – see our stretch goals!) and formatting by Hermit Prints (@hermitwrites on Tumblr).

Interested? (OF COURSE YOU ARE!) Learn more!

The Kickstarter for Add Magic to Taste will run through Saturday, August 14th at 11 AM EDT – so follow us here, check it out, and if you want to support an awesome group of writers creating an amazing collection of fluffy queer stories – back our project!
