For years, Cash Money and his sire Old Money have owned and operated the Silver Saddle Pawn Shop, the only pawn and loan shop in Ponyville. Together with Cash's colt Big Hoss and new hire Derpy Hooves, they buy and sell things of every variety from all over Equestria as well as issue pawn loans to ponies in need. UPDATE: Episode 7: The Silver Saddle crew is back! Business is booming at the shop and the pawnbrokers have become household names, but they still have stiff competition in town. Filthy Rich drops by to ruffle Old Money's mane over an upcoming benefit auction that could make or break their annual profit. Big Hoss has been working his hooves to the bone with repeatedly working the night shift and promoting the family business. Can Cash keep the affairs of his father and son in check while buying a piece of royal history? Also, Hoss digs his hooves in the dirt when a contractor brings in some construction equipment that has seen better days. It shapes up to be a busy day - and night - for the profiteers of Ponyville.

I have some great news for those of you who are following Ponyville Pawn Stars. I have been working fervently on Episode 7. After it goes through the editing process in the next few days, it will be published. Any day now.
This is the first new chapter I've written in almost a year. I've been very busy with all sorts of things in that time, and I've devoted what few extra hours and little extra energy I've had into creating this work. As with all my previous chapters, I'm very excited about publishing it and hearing your reactions to the latest exploits of Cash and his crew.
In addition to making this announcement, I'm also requesting a favor from you. I would like you all to promote this story the best you can and get as many people as possible to read it. My goal is to have it appear in the featured stories list on the Fimfiction homepage. I know it's a tall order, but I would be ecstatic beyond belief if I jumped on my computer one day and found my story prominently displayed there.
If anyone is seriously interested in helping me make edits for the final draft, let me know in a private message. I need people with trained eyes and attention to detail. The sooner we make that happen, the sooner everyone gets to see it.
Hope everyone is doing well.

Judging from the reception I've been getting from Pony Nation, I can tell that it's going to need a lot of work in order to get the idea done right. Some of you fellow writers have given some very beneficial constructive criticism as to how I can improve this work and tell a better story. But instead of tearing my hair out (what little is left, anyway) trying to do that right now, I'm going to go ahead and put it on the back burner for awhile. In the meantime, I feel that you all should know that I'm working on a new episode of Ponyville Pawn Stars right now. I can't say when it'll be finished, but I'm excited about returning to the story that helped me connect to everyone here. Stay tuned.

So, I've been off the radar for awhile due to some significant events taking place in Casa de Wolf, but I'm back again. I've given some serious thought to how Pony Nation has been progressing, and I decided that a serious rewrite is in order starting from the beginning. The new prologue is only the first of several changes coming to the story, as I will be rewriting the first (formerly the old prologue) and probably second chapters to reflect the redirection in my story. I can't say when they'll be ready, but I'll keep everyone posted. Hope you all are having a great summer.

Hmm...I've noticed that the response I'm getting on this story isn't quite what I expected =/. Maybe it's due to the inclusion of a certain alicorn princess, a perceived similarity to another work of human/pony crossover fiction, or something else. Either way, I was not prepared for the response thus far. So I think I will try doing something...
One lesson I learned from good storytelling is that it an interesting story often begins in the middle of an action. The best example of this that I know is in Salman Rushdie's The Satanic Verses, in which the first chapter begins with two Indian film actors falling out of sky after their plane explodes in midair. Captivating, right? I know. What I have in mind isn't something quite like that, but I think it will serve well in creating a better hook as well as familiarizing the reader better with the themes of my story. I will make the prologue and first chapter into the first and second chapters, then begin the story with an alternate prologue. This new passage will be a "flash-forward," which will take place on Earth probably six months to a year after the time in which my story first began. It will also involve a fan-favorite pony...and I think I'll leave it at that.
I may have said too much already. No ETA on publishing, but I am working on it. See you soon.
