There’s always more in the pipeline here at Duck Prints Press, and while we’re still putting the finishing touches on our most recently crowdfunded anthology Aether Beyond the Binary, that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped working on what’s coming next! We’re thrilled to be ready to share with y’all the list of 16 authors contributing to our next project – our FIRST erotica anthology! – entitled Many Hands: An Anthology of Polyamorous Erotica. We anticipate launching the crowdfunding campaign for this campaign in the early spring.

Read on to learn all about these awesome writers!

Alex Bauer

Born and raised in the Wisconsin northwoods, Alex Bauer is a part-time author and full-time menace. When he’s not writing, he can be found communing with his animals via prolonged eye contact and inhuman chittering. Summoning him is as easy as leaving a cup of coffee unattended (or rolling a shiny object past his hidey-hole).

He developed a passion for books and writing in early childhood, concerning librarians and classmates alike with the number of books he could devour in any given week. Ever since, he’s endeavored to channel that passion (and his queer experience) into his own creative work.

He is a proud multifandom multishipper. His favorite characters are mostly powerful, wet-cat-energy protagonists who would rather be anywhere else but their current story. While he started out as a Naruto fiend, his current favorite fandoms include Trigun, Bungou Stray Dogs, Voltron: Legendary Defender, and Boku no Hero Academia.

enchantedsleeper is a writer and general fandom enthusiast from the UK who has been knocking around the internet and fandom since 2004-ish. She came to fandom through anime and manga and reading second-person quizzes on Quizilla, before discovering Fanfiction.net and later, AO3. She mainly creates fanfic but has also dabbled in fanart, cosplay, fancrafts, fanvids, and meta throughout her time in fandom.

She previously published an essay in Ofic Magazine, “From Anime to (Quiz)Zilla: A fandom origin story” about her history with fandom and how it has shaped her life. This is her first published original fiction.

Full-time fandom cryptid, Furby enthusiast, and the human embodiment of that one gif of Elmo on fire, ilgaksu was born and raised in an undisclosed location, living in several others, and now currently residing in [REDACTED]. Their interests include collecting haunted toys, using their artistic practice as an excuse to forget to do their laundry, and playing with fictional men like Bratz dolls. They have not unclenched their jaw yet today, but they do remember to drink lots of water.

Mina Kramek

Mina has been looking through archways and in tree hollows for a portal to another world since she was six years old, and discovered along the way that she loves exploring this world almost as much. The first stories she ever told were fairy tale retellings, and she still has a soft spot for them. She’s been writing fanfiction since long before she knew what it was, but finished a story for the first time in 2020 after watching the Untamed three times in a row. Since then, she’s posted about 750k worth of stories on AO3 and modded a Big Bang. She would always rather be sipping wine by a river and learning the history of somewhere she’s never been before, but staying home with her cats, a book, or the occasional crochet project is pretty good too.

When not writing, Cedar can be found making various handcrafted goods or screaming into the abyss about his latest hyperfixation (currently robots).

YF Ollwell (he/him and she/her) is a queer transmasculine writer, artist and graduate student currently located in sunny California. He has been writing both original work and fanfiction for over a decade, posting predominantly in horror and anime fandoms, but has only recently began publishing his original work as well.

When not writing for work or play, YF can be found experimenting with new art modes, watching grindhouse movies, or re-reading The Stand for the seventh time.

Taliesin Owens

Taliesin is a queer author who grew up bouncing around Europe and the US and currently calls Chicago home. They’ve been writing stories since they had to pester their mom to help them transcribe their words on the family desktop computer. After half a million words of posted fanfiction and a lot of kind encouragement from friends and strangers, they are delighted to be making their publishing debut with Duck Prints Press. They work as a stage manager, dog walker, bartender, and hold a Master’s degree in Humanities, with a focus in literature. No amount of school or chaotic array of part-time jobs has yet managed to stop them from reading and writing voraciously. They can also occasionally be found doing calligraphy, baking, getting really excited about Shakespeare, or walking out to look at the lake because everything seems a little better when you can stand at the edge of the water for a while.

Veronica Sanders

Veronica Sanders has a deep love of modern literature that began in early childhood, when she considered Judy Blume, Ann M. Martin (IYKYK), and Barbara Parks amongst her personal heroes. Later, she added Toni Morrison, Amy Tan, and Julia Alvarez to that list, as well as (begrudgingly) a couple of boys, in the form of Kurt Vonnegut and John Irving. Her initial forays into fanfiction began in preschool, making her dolls act out fix-it scenes from her favorite TV shows. Currently, she is the admin for Artificial Queens, a Tumblr blog for RuPaul’s Drag Race-inspired fanfiction. She would like to dedicate this story to all the Blonde + Brunette couples who have inspired her over the years.

E. K. Victor

E. K. Victor, aka Smehur (they/them), is a queer writer, artist and stargazer. They have been writing fanfiction for fifteen years (mostly for Mass Effect, but also The Elder Scrolls and recently Darksiders), and original fiction for about half as long. Working with Duck Prints Press is their first foray into traditional publishing.

In one way or another, Smehur’s fiction is always about troubled m/m relationships where deception, jealousy, mental illness and/or the barriers in understanding between neurotypical and neurodivergent characters are balanced by love, loyalty, or sometimes, obsession. Their favorite trope is second chances.

Outside their creative pursuits, Smehur is a low-energy creature who shies from company and enjoys reading, gardening and gaming. Increasingly, they worry that the world will end before they get to tell it all their tales.

Terra P. Waters

Artwork of a light-skinned person looking toward their viewer. They have light brown, shoulder length hair, and they're wearing a v-cut dark pink top. A pendant with a blue stone dangles on their chest.

Terra is a scientist by day who lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family. She has been writing fiction as long as she can remember, and has always told her partner of 17 years that if she wasn’t a scientist, she would be an author. During grad school, she discovered fanfiction and immediately began writing her own. After many years and several fandoms (including Teen Wolf, Hawaii Five-0, and Stranger Things), she returned to writing original fiction. To date, she has self-published two novellas in a 90s-nostalgia polyamory comedy series, and has drafted two YA/NA sci-fi novels. When not doing science or writing, you can find Terra indulging her yarn addiction and knitting.

Recent Releases from Duck Prints Press!

An informational graphic with 7 rectangular book covers over a simple gradient background from blue to pink. A header reads "November New Releases from Duck Prints Press." The book covers are: "The Lightkeeper and the Sea" by Zel Howland; "Sarisa" by N. C. Farrell; "Pour One Out" by A. J. Ash; "The Wayward Timekeeper" by Terra P. Waters; "Orchidelirium" by Dei Walker; "What Monsters Need" by Lyn Weaver; and "Pretty 7 Days a Week" by R. L. Houck. At the bottom of the graphic, text reads "Become a Patreon Backer and Read These Short Stories and Many Others NOW!"

November marks the first month when all of Duck Prints Press’s new short story releases are direct to Patreon!

How do short story releases now work?

Formerly, we published two short stories to Patreon and between four and eight short stories to our website each month. However, after considering the purchasing patterns of our customers and Patreon backers, we’ve decided to consolidate these releases and only publish short stories to Patreon (and authors are paid a lump sum instead of royalties). We will aim for six stories a month, though may sometimes publish more if we didn’t hit our target in a previous month (for example, we didn’t publish six in October, so we are publishing an extra in November). The level at which each story is released is determined randomly. What level people back at determines how many stories they receive each month!

All Backers: receive one general imprint short story per month
All backers at the $5/month level and up: receive one additional general imprint short per month
All backers at the $7/month level and up: receive one additional general imprint short story + one explicit imprint short story per month
All backers at the $10/month level and up: receive one additional story per month, which may be from either imprint
$25/month backers: receive all short stories we release every month!

Put another way, $3/month = 1 story; $5/month = 2 stories; $7/month = 4 stories; $10/month = 5 stories; and $25/month = 6 stories.

This is in addition to all the other backer rewards we offer, such as behinds-the-scenes access, Discord membership, webstore discounts, free merchandise, bonus stories, and more!

Both of September’s new erotica short stories expand on existing ‘verses that the authors have long been exploring. Learn all about them now!

Title: Just Let Me Lose Control
Series: Welcome to PHU
Author: Tris Lawrence

This is a “canon insert” that takes place midway through the events of Commit to the Kick.

M/M, Friends with Benefits, Loss of Virginity, No-Strings-Attached Relationship

An itch has been growing worse under Alaric’s skin for a long time, and he finally thinks he knows how to cure it: by getting laid.

Title: Want You Both
Series: Pet Names: A Fantasy M x M x M Smut Collection
Author: boneturtle

M/M/M, Fantasy, Waking Up Together, PWP (Plot, What Plot?), Double Penetration

Mithros wakes up to Aren masturbating and Samael still asleep, and need burns inside him.

Surely, Mithros and Aren can satisfy each other without waking up their other husband. But if Samael does wake up, maybe Mithros can finally get what he truly wants.


In addition to these two new releases, we are excited to share that, as of today, you can now purchase every erotica title we’ve ever published by buying our four convenient bundles!

Yep, that’s right – for $44.24 US you can get every erotica short story and novelette that Duck Prints Press has published. That’s 30 stories!

And now is a great moment to catch up on our past releases, because starting in October, we will (mostly) no longer be publishing short stories to our webpage. Instead, all story debuts will be straight-to-Patreon (we may still do the occasional “re-publish” of a former Patreon-exclusive to the website). So, if you want to make sure you don’t miss out on all the short story greatness that Duck Prints Press has to offer, it’s a good time to start thinking about backing us monthly on Patreon! We’ll be sharing more information about these changes in October.

Three New Erotica Stories From Duck Prints Press!

What day is it? Release day! And have we got some steamy new stories for you. Check out our August erotica releases!

Title: Brambles, Pollen, and Other Natural Disasters
Author: A. L. Heard

M/M, Modern, 100% Certified Consensual Sex Pollen, Friends to Lovers, Mutual Pining

When Nick and Brady move into an off-campus house, the landlady warns them to leave the overgrown backyard alone.

Nick expects his long-time crush on Brady to be the main issue he has to grapple with when they live together.

He does not expect the backyard to throw a wrench into their relationship.

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.


Title: Close and Warm
Author: Robin Mal

F/M, Established Relationship, Fluffy Loving Support for a Trans Man’s Sexual Boundaries

T has brought many changes to Max’s life and his body, but he’s been reluctant to explore the physical changes, preferring to focus on what he knows how to do well: pleasure his girlfriend Luoyu.

But when Luoyu announces, during a long, lazy afternoon, that she’d like to give him a blow job, he realizes…maybe he’s ready to let her take care of him.

At least, he’s very interested in trying…


Title: Cecaelia
Author: Dei Walker

F/F, Cruise Ship Hook Up, Half-Octopus Singer x Human Passenger, Consentacles

Halyna originally planned to go on a cruise with her girlfriend, but she’s not going to let the fact that they’ve broken up ruin her vacation, even if it means she’s now traveling solo and nursing a wounded heart.

But she might sulk, a little, over fancy drinks in the lounge.

That turns out to be a great plan, because if she hadn’t been in the lounge, she’d never heard Stella Maris’s dulcet voice, nor seen her sultry, come-hither gaze.


Duck Prints Press has over 25 other erotic stories, set in a variety of genres and featuring a range of ship types, so come on over and check out all the sexy we have in store for you!

Last Day to Buy Our Pride Bundles and Support Queer Charities!

Today is July 28th, which means it’s the last day to buy our General Imprint Pride Bundle and Erotica Imprint Pride Bundle, save money on our stories, and help us raise funds to donate to the Ali Forney Center and Transgender Law Center!

Each bundle costs $19.69, in honor of the year of Stonewall. The Press is donating 40% of our share of the proceeds to the charities, and many of our authors chose to donate part of their share to charity as well, with the result that more than 35% of each bundle sale will go directly to the causes our authors have chosen to support. Thus far, we’ve raised just over $300; we’ll divide our final total in half and make the donations once the fundraiser is complete, and we’ll post receipts for transparency purposes.

The General Imprint bundle includes 14 short stories – 175 pages of very queer fiction – with works by Alec J. Marsh, Annabeth Lynch, D. V. Morse, Era J. M. Couts, J. D. Harlock, Nicola Kapron, Nina Waters, nottesilhouette, Puck Malamud, R. L. Houck, Sage Mooreland, Theresa Tanner, Tris Lawrence, and Violet J. Hayes. Approximately $7 of every General Imprint bundle purchase goes to charity (35%).

The Erotica Imprint bundle includes 11 short stories – a steamy, smutty 151 pages – with works by Aeryn Jemariel Knox, Alec J. Marsh, boneturtle, Dei Walker, Lyn Weaver, Mikki Madison, Nina Waters, R. L. Houck, Samantha M. Piper, Tris Lawrence, and Xianyu Zhou. Approximately $8 of every Erotica Imprint bundle purchase goes to charity (40%).

DUCK PRINTS PRESS gets your eyes on two whole bundles of our publications.

Happy erotica release day, everyone! We’ve got two new short stories for y’all today – and a new book bundle! Today, in celebration for our just having sent out acceptances to applicants to our upcoming anthology Many Hands: An Anthology of Polyamorous Erotica, we’ve got two new poly stories for your delight!

Title: Theirs All Along
Series: Pet Names: A Fantasy M x M x M Smut Collection
Author: boneturtle

M/M/M, Fantasy, Porn with Plot

A Safe Place to Land and Want You Both introduced us to the god Aren and his husbands, the demons Mithros and Samael, and showed us just how steamy things get when the three are together.

In this prequel story, learn how they met, and got together! The god Aren has been sent by the heavenly court to infiltrate the army of the demon king Samael. He’s expecting the mission to be difficult; what he’s not expecting is the sparks the fly every time he’s sparring with Samael or helping Samael’s husband Mithros with his work…


Title: Warm Anything You Want
Author: Tris Lawrence

M/M/NB, Modern, Established Threesome, Temperature Play

On a snowy winter day, Crys is making breakfast and Jake is outside shoveling snow when their third, Win, comes downstairs, and he clearly only has one thing on his mind.

Theoretically, they all need to get to work, but Win is so deliciously hot, and Jake is so deliciously cold, and, well…maybe, if Crys is very lucky, there’ll be a snow delay, and the three of them will have some time to explore this new (temperature) dynamic between them…


And introducing – erotica story bundles!

You’ve already heard about our Pride Bundles – two collections of short stories that we’re selling to celebrate Pride and raise some funds for two great causes. But those aren’t the only bundles we’ve got! We’ve compiled two awesome collections of our erotic short stories, with more to come, to help get you all the delicious feels you crave at an awesome discounted price!

The Spring 2023 Erotica Bundle!

Great Queer Stories for Great Queer Causes

In honor of the 54th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots – June 28th, 1969 – Duck Prints Press is thrilled to share with you how we’re celebrating Pride Month: with queer stories, of course!

Introducing our Pride 2023 Bundles: two collections of short stories, one general imprint, one erotica, each priced at a discounted $19.69, with all purchases benefiting two wonderful queer charities selected by the authors of the stories in the bundles: The Ali Forney Center and the Transgender Law Center.

We’ll be donating roughly 35% of the proceeds from these bundles to charity – the Press is donating 10% off the top, and many of the authors chose to donate part of their royalties as well, bringing the totals to approximately 40% of the list price of the erotica collection and approximately 35% of the list price of the general imprint collection.

How This Works

  • you buy one or both bundles between now and July 28th, 2023.
  • we tally up all the proceeds earned and do some math-e-magic to figure out how much we’re donating!
  • we divide the charity share in half right down the middle and, within the first week of August, we donate raised money to the Ali Forney Center and the Transgender Law Center; then, we post the proof we’ve done so.
  • you get fantastic stories!
  • we all get that happy, glowy feeling of knowing that money has been well-spent on fantastic causes!

About the Press

Duck Prints Press is a queer-owned indie press, founded to publish original works by fancreators. We’ve been in operation for over 2 years, and in that time we’ve worked with well over 150 creators to publish four anthologies and almost 70 other stories, from shorts to novels, and we’ve got more on the works (our fifth anthology is Kickstarting RIGHT NOW, as a matter of fact!). The vast majority of our creators and their creations are queer/LGTBQIA+ (maybe even all, but we don’t out anyone and we don’t ask demography because, frankly, it’s none of our business).

20 of our authors have chosen to include their short stories in one or both of these short story bundles, and these 20 and others nominated charities, then voted to narrow it down to these two! Participation in these bundles was entirely voluntarily, as was choosing to donate shares of royalties, which about a third of the authors have opted to do.

About the Charities

Note: These charities are not affiliated with the Press, do not know we’re doing this fundraiser, have not endorsed this in anyway and are, as such, utterly uninvolved in this beyond being the beneficiaries of our efforts! Text is from the websites of each charity and is being used under fair use laws.

The Ali Forney Center was founded in 2002. Committed to saving the lives of LGBTQ+ young people, our mission is to protect them from the harms of homelessness and empower them with the tools needed to live independently. A 24-hour program, The Ali Forney Center never closes its doors. We provide more than just a bed and food for those in need — from initial intake at our drop-in center to transitional housing and job readiness training, we provide homeless LGBTQ+ youth a safe, warm, supportive environment to escape the streets [of New York City].

Transgender Law Center is the largest national trans-led organization advocating self-determination for all people. Since 2002 we’ve been organizing, assisting, informing and empowering thousands of individual community members towards a long-term, national, trans-led movement for liberation.
