Duck Prints Press Titles Now Distributing through Ingram!

We’re really super-duper thrilled to share that, for the past several months, we’ve been working on setting up wider distribution of Duck Prints Press titles, and as of December, part of our catalog is now available through a number of partners thanks to Ingram’s distribution services. You can now get select e-books through Apple, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and many other platforms (but not Amazon, because Reasons).

Even better, you can also get the offered titles through many library systems! Does your library work with Bibliotheca, Baker & Taylor, Overdrive, Proquest, or any of a number of others? Well, now you can get our books that way, too!

Currently, we’re only distributing two titles: Add Magic to Taste and To Drive the Hundred Miles by Alec J. Marsh – an erotic novella we released in December. However, we’re hard at work adding additional titles; And Seek (Not) to Alter Me: Queer Fanworks Inspired by Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” Commit to the Kick by Tris Lawrence, and A Glimmer of Hope by Nina Waters will all be available by the end of January.

We also expect to list future anthologies, novels, and novellas for distribution. We’re still considering if we should offer our short stories – if the amount of demand is worth the expense of listing them – so if you’ve got an opinion on whether you’d like us to make those more available, we’d love to hear from you! Our inbox at info@duckprintspress.com is open any time.

Easier Than Expected by Samantha M. Piper

so he won’t fly away by Tris Lawrence

Alaric has been named heir for his Clan community, but that hasn’t fixed his relationship with his father or resolved the issues that come with having a very human partner in Chris. His first official political Conclave is complicated, his anxiety heightened under the weight of expectations. Maybe Chris can anchor him so he won’t fly away…

In the Moonlight by E. V. Dean

Remy slips her oversized sunglasses over her nose. The afternoon sun has taken a deep dive and hangs low above the horizon. Not yet subdued in its oranges and reds, its sharp rays shine straight through the windshield into her eyes. She should have been more firm about taking off early if they wanted to arrive before nightfall, but she just couldn’t bring herself to deprive Julia of her well-deserved sleep on her day off.

At least it’s not much farther now, and the plan is to have the red wine from the cooler and some quick snack for dinner on their girls’ night in. They don’t need daylight for that. And they’ll have four full days to enjoy sunbathing and swimming in the picturesque lake that awaits them.

Clerical Error by Dei Walker

“This is not how I envisioned escorting a cleric going.” The moss and vines covering the weathered stone of the temple swallowed Lilya’s voice. One of her hands dropped to rest on the hilt of her sword, seeking reassurance from the presence of the familiar weapon. Her other hand held a torch aloft; she’d thought it redundant given all the holes in the temple roof, but she’d brought it anyway. Light streamed in through the cracks and gaps, but inside was dim enough to prove her cautiousness right—the torch was necessary. The smell of pitch and tar filled her nose, replacing the heady smell of flowers that had suffused the temple before she lit the torch. Looking around, she tried to find her charge.

Urchin Juiced by Xianyu Zhou

There were tales about sordid encounters between mers and landfolks. Yun had heard plenty of them, each one more daring than the previous. While he had never considered actively seeking out interested landfolk—there were islands and beaches where such activities were popular—he’d still wondered if such relationships would truly be as pleasurable as the stories made them out to be.

The tales that he preferred involved landfolk watching as a mer pleasured themselves, and then as a reward for the show, bestowing precious things upon the mer. Logically, even if Yun liked owning things, he was in the middle of a journey; anything he possessed would be a hassle to carry with him until he found a more permanent resting spot. He’d prefer that they offer him a feast of landfolk food. But the landfolk who he had seen earlier didn’t seem eager to watch—not that they’d seen him—unless…
