Add Magic to Taste Merch Reveal 1: Key Chain!

We’ve got a lot of amazing merchandise planned for the Kickstarter of our first anthology, Add Magic to Taste, which is an anthology of 20 stories about fluffy queer relationships growing and developing in magical coffee shops, tea shops, bakeries, and the like!

We’ll be posting teasers of our stories and reveals of our planned merchandise over these last few days before the Kickstarter launches on July 15th, with more to come after the campaign goes live, so stay tuned.

First up?

Key Chain!

This absolutely adorable piece by @foxyjoy-art (Twitter, Instagram) will be featured on a 2″ x 2″/5 cm x 5 cm printed by Stickermule!

How can you get your very own key chain of this precious pixie and delicious donut?

  • Back our Kickstarter at the $35 level or higher (you can learn more about our backer levels in our FAQ, or wait until the campaign launches on July 15th)
  • Support our Patreon at the $25/month level (and while lower backer levels won’t get you the key chain, they WILL help support the Press, and some also include other Kickstarter-related extras!)

(you can also buy us a ko-fi or three if you want – it won’t yield key chain but we’ll appreciate it a lot. <3 )

Interested in Add Magic to Taste, Duck Prints Press, and our upcoming Kickstarter? We’d love to have you along for the ride – so give us a follow on social media and keep your eyes open, ‘cause there’s a lot more amazing things to come!

The Kickstarter for Add Magic to Taste launches on July 15th, 2021!

Duck Prints Press, LLC, is thrilled to be working with author Tris Lawrence (@tryslora) to bring her trilogy, “Twinned,” to a wider audience, by publishing the e-book version of the first book in the series! If you love college settings, sports AUs, a huge splash of magic, found family, and queer characters from across the L.G.B.T.Q.I.A. spectrum, this series is a must-not-miss!! This full length (160k words!) novel includes laughs, grief, adventure, fear, with incredible characterizations and an ending that will leave you wanting more.

Summary:

For eighteen years, Alaric has lived under the cloying politics of family and his Clan community. His freshman year is supposed to be a chance to explore a world where Clan and his shapeshifting Talent isn’t central to his life. But when his inner bear bursts forth during his first football game, endangering those around him, Alaric realizes that it’s not so easy to ignore his past, or his own internalized anger.

In his quest for anger management, Alaric begins to train in taekwondo, and makes new friends in both sports. He finds that he is creating his own small community, where Clan, Mages, other Talents, and even humans come together and build their own found family.

When Alaric receives news that something has happened to his brother Orson, he must return and deal with his Clan and his place in their world. He discovers that old prejudices are still strong between Clan and Mage communities, but that both may be in danger from a creature long thought to be only a legend. Alaric must figure out how to move forward and prevent a war and protect both his home and newly built communities, his found family with him every step of the way.

Price: $6.99
