Duck Prints Press LLC is thrilled to announce our third title – a modern-with-magic novelette by Nina Waters, with three full-page illustrations by Nikki O’Shea!

Fortunately, Harriet isn’t alone.

“Puppetry” is a story about aging, changing, growing up, asserting independence – and finding someone worth spending a lifetime of lifetimes with.
