Today is our October release day, and we’ve got three short stories out! Two are former Patreon stories now released in our store, which means you can back us on Patreon and read them both, or you can buy them individually by visiting our website! The third is a Patreon-exclusive. Going forward, most of our short stories will publish directly to our Patreon account, and will not become available to on our website as stand-alone purchases. So, if you love Duck Prints Press and want to get access to all the great short mostly-queer stories that we have to offer, there’s no time like RIGHT NOW to become a backer. $3/month backers get access to 31 short stories immediately, and backers at higher levels can get even more!
So back us out on Patreon and read to your heart’s content! (or visit our webstore and buy the stories you want the most!)
M/M, Modern High School Setting, Mutual Pining Idiots to Lovers
Brady Jensen is excited to attend this year’s Halloween festival with his friends. It’s got hayrides, a corn maze, oodles of pumpkins, lots of fun things to do…and it’s got a haunted house.
Brady is not excited for the haunted house.
But at least his crush Nick is there to give him something to think about other than his fears…
This story is an alternate universe take on Nick Porter and Brady Jensen, the main characters of A. L. Heard’s novel “Hockey Bois.” No knowledge of the source material is needed to enjoy this story.
F/NB, Coffee Shop Meet-Cute, the Ennui of Modern Wage Employment
Zoe hates her part-time job in telemarketing, but at least it pays the bills while she’s in graduate school, and at least it’s just down the street from the adorable Corner Café. When she stops in for pick-me-up and gets trapped in the café by a rainstorm, though, the last thing she expects is some company while she drinks her cup of rose chai latte.
