    Audiobook Directory

    Over the years, several fandom YouTubers have created audio productions of stories from the Horse Voice bibliography. These are now very numerous, and so for the convenience of listeners, I have compiled them here.

    Many thanks to those who liked my stories enough to create these great renditions.

    You Are Not Alone

    This message is very, very late by the standards of the Internet. But my conscience won't let me rest until I say how I feel.

    A week ago, news broke that former fan-author Jetfire2012 had taken leave of his sanity and picked a fight with an entire crowd... with predictable and well-deserved results.

    Dear Ponies, Allow Me to Play You Out

    Here in Canada, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day. And so for myself and other Canadian bronies, the timing of Pony's finale, almost to the day, is quite fitting.

    But really, who needs a red-letter day for thankfulness? This event may be bittersweet, but we can all be thankful for the good times, for the lessons that help us, for our creations, and for each other.

    My Interview at BronyCon: Slightly Less Cringey Than I Expected

    "Um, uh, uh, er, um, uh, y'know..."
    --Me

    Surprise, everyone! One of my fans, Tyler Hinton, managed to find me at BronyCon 2019 and ask for an in-person interview. The result: About six minutes of me spilling my guts, interspersed with ten minutes of "um's." Luckily, Tyler edited the boring parts out, so my long, rambling answers don't drag on too much.

    "I Cast a Deadly Shadow" Audiobook by Scribbler Productions, et al

    Just in time for Friday the 13th, Scribbler Productions have released the audio production of my contest-winning story, I Cast a Deadly Shadow. Many thanks and kudos to the voice actors: Goombasa, Neighrator Pony, Luna Farrowe, Wubcake, and of course Scribbler herself, for successfully scaring me with my own story.

    Have a listen below, but beware--it earns its Grimdark warning.

Horse Voice at BronyCon 2018 · 6:09pm Jul 14th, 2018

Guess what, bronies.

Against all odds, the Canadian Delegation--GaryOak, Reia Hope, and myself--will be at the big one again this year. Gary's doing three panels, and what do you know, it happens that I'm on one of them.

Research is Magic! -- Saturday, Midnight - 1:00 AM, Hall of the Sun
Panelists: GaryOak, Shakespearicles, GaPJaxie, and Horse Voice
"Doing research is an essential part of writing, and it is important to know your material. Fandom authors are here to help you use your knowledge to draw a reader in."

... And it's at midnight. Dang.

Still, it could be worse. We might have been placed opposite Scribbler. Then we'd end up talking to an empty auditorium.

Now, a lot of people's eyes glaze over when they hear the word "research." This is because modern education trains people to think of learning as a chore. But we intend to break through that barrier, because of two simple truths about learning:

1. Learning is a form of recreation, if you're doing it right.
2. You've already done it, probably without meaning to.

So, if you want to meet me in person, there you go. And this time, it's easier than looking for a weirdly-dressed person in a crowd of weirdly-dressed people.

Bon voyage, everyone!

Here's hoping I can spot your vest at the opening ceremonies again. We'll see about the panel. It sounds fascinating, but midnight... :unsuresweetie:

Just don't mistake him for Jake the Army Guy. That's an oopsie you'll never live down on either side of the equation. :trollestia:

No pressure. That's what Quills & Sofas is for.

Nah, it's easy to tell us apart. I'm the good-looking one. :trollestia:

This man listens to Korpiklaani, obviously he is a gentleman of refined tastes.

I'm really disappointed I won't be able to hang out with you again this year. Have a great time!

Here's hoping I can sneak away to Trixie's party!

Impeccable musical taste =D. And this is one more blog post tempting me to go...

Dang. Not this year for me, I'm afraid. Enjoy the con, and the panel!

Same here. Next year, perhaps. :ajsleepy:

4901249

If not, I'm sure I'll see you in passing as you run around putting out fires. :raritywink:

4901688

Aww. But BC will still be there next year. :coolphoto:

Nice! I'll be going to BronyCon this year too. Hope you have fun!

+1 for good music taste (although I see no Iron Maiden patch, so I'm not sure what's going on there).
