    Bronycon 2019

    The last Bronycon...

    It was fun. Certainly fun, though also a bit of a LineCon 2019, too. Had a bit more than 10k attendees. That's a good numerical sendoff.

    Wanderer D

    As most here who have read my stuff know, I'm good friends with another author here named Wanderer D. Many may have read the crossover chapters we wrote for the Sweetie Belle Chronicles.

    My Little Vacation

    Finally out here after a long day of flying and driving at old Lake Tahoe for a couple days of skiing and maybe a gamble or two at the casinos nearby...
    As a few know, this means no weekend updates of Platinum Crown, so just FYI
    But I should be back on track the next week, I think.

Best Night Ever - in book form! · 6:04pm Jun 18th, 2019

It has been an eternity since I last posted, I know (well, like 2 years), but I have an interesting announcement!

If you look here, you'll see that a number of stories are being published as hardcover books. This is part of Aquaman's Golden Oaks Bookstore, in the final Bronycon this August. They're wondering how much to print of each entry, though, so if you are interested (ordering online or picking up in person) why not go over and give them a vote, so we don't run out of any of these cool books.

TBNE itself was reformatted, with some very minor grammatical and formatting tweaks and corrections, for this professional printed version. I think it looks pretty sweet, and we've got a redone cover and more.

EDIT
Yes, I do plan to be at this last Bronycon. Hope to see you there!

Looks snazzy. Were the non-formatting fixes put in the digital version as well?

Love the new cover art.

Holy crap you're alive!

still reminds me of the one direction song

Congratulations. It makes me happy that your story has become an official book. Hope we see more of you this year.

Oh my gosh, I loved this story! I doubt I can make it to Bronycon, but I definitely hope that I can pick up a copy of this online. ^_^

Now, the real question: will you be at Bronycon to sign my copy?

I will be there.

That should be doable in the future, similar to how I applied some fixes to the fic in 2012.

What does this mean for This Platinum Crown? Is that one basically cancelled at this point, or is it just collecting dust but not over yet?

Oh, the classics are coming out!

There is actually a relatively small amount of TPC to finish, and if I can, I am to have it finished by the time Bronycon comes around. Even if that means putting other things on temp hold. I'd be very embarrassed if I go to the last Bronycon ever with it not done, especially since it is really, really, really close to done, and basically in the narrative climax.

TBNE and TPC are without a doubt, my favorite fics on this site. I can't wait to see what you have in store to wrap up TPC!

That's really great to hear. I've kept the last few chapters unread in a bid to stave off dissapointment.

Looking through the highlander thread, there really is a case to be made that TBNE is the best season 1 fic. I can't wait to reread it in dead tree form near a fireplace.

:pinkiegasp:

Whoah whoah!. Best news in some time!

5076529
Huzzah! Now I just need to re-read it all in time to refresh my memory

Ooh Climax of a great fic for climax of series. Very nice. I would be happy to beta again if you need it.

I won't be able to make it to Bronycon unfortunately. Do you think it might be possible to have a copy shipped, should you have any left after the con?

Only just saw this blog post now and I'm in Australia, so I can't even swing past the con to grab the book. Any chance I'll be able to grab a copy and have it shipped?

5076529
Pleeeeeeaaaaase! I'm so happy to hear that man! Cheers!

PC

Ohh damn! Any chance of online orders for TBNE (and perhaps TPC?) later? That'd be one of the crowns of my collection! :raritystarry:

Any plans on selling the leftover copies online?

5076529

Well, it seems I'm going to be embarrassed.

I do have 10k words of TPC done... and this is like the next chapter, but it is hardly done like I imagined it would be. Damnit.

Just received mine from Lulu ( I live in Australia as well). It's pretty decently priced and %10 off on lulu at the moment!
