Rallying the DPP Vote!

Ever wondered how we pick the themes for our anthologies? It’s actually pretty simple. As a team, the people who help run Duck Prints Press decide “the next project will be X type,” where X is general imprint, or explicit imprint, or Queer Fanworks Inspired By…, etc. Then, we brainstorm some potential themes, sometimes with input from other people involved in the Press, sometimes not.

And then?

Why, we have the backers on our Patreon decide!

That’s right – every single backer, from $3/month on up, gets a vote!

And they’re exercising that voting might right now. Yesterday, the poll went up to decide the theme of our next anthology, the third in our Queer Fanworks Inspired By… series. What will our authors and artists be inspired by? The choices are…

  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
  • Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
  • the Women of the Homeric Epics (the Illiad and the Odyssey)
  • the works of the Brontë Sisters (Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, etc.)

Which will be the winner? I honestly couldn’t tell you. The vote’s open until next Sunday, and it’s far too soon to call. We haven’t even counted the dangling chads yet!

What I CAN tell you is that almost 40% of our 62 current backers have voted since the poll went up yesterday, and that if I ended the poll right now, we’d have to have a run-off – because there’s a dead-even tie between the two most popular choices!

So become a Duck Prints Press Patron now, vote for our next inspiration, and influence the future of publishing! YOU HAVE THE POWEEEEER!

The first time Rain had seen the conceptual entity he called Cerberus, he’d been dying. That tracked. Encountering a conceptual entity was usually the last thing one did. Cerberus hadn’t been the one killing him, though. Shattered machinery, Mirror exposure, and his own armour unit had been responsible for that. The metal stabbed through him hadn’t killed him quickly enough. It had begun fusing with his ravaged body while flesh and steel both unraveled into the ever-present glittering haze. He’d been lying on his back, drifting in and out of consciousness, struggling to hold himself together as his very self dissolved at the seams, when he heard it. A voice. A real one, not an echo.

Someone had been standing over him, looking down.

No. Something. A huge black dog made of storm clouds and lightning, eyes and mouths crackling with terrible light.
