    Question and Announcments! · 10:57pm Jun 11th, 2015

    Hello everyone! It is me, Stahl, here with a possible new story! For those of you who read The Last Pony on Earth, I might be coming with a spin-off for you guys. Now, it isn't really my best work, but I was reading another spin-off a few nights ago and I was like, "I could do better than this..." so I wrote a chapter of my own version of it. But, I'm kinda having second thoughts on it. Mainly because I know for a fact that I probably won't be updating constantly on it like how the original author is doing. As long as anyone that reads it don't mind, I'll probably just post it then. Anyway, what do you guys say? Should I post it?

    Trial and Error · 3:08am Aug 27th, 2016

    Using Lulu.com certainly has a learning curve.

    The proof copy arrived today. And I've learned firsthand that 11x8.5 inches is big. Too big for a storybook. The size is more akin to school textbooks. I will have to scale it down to a more manageable size. Furthermore, the illustrations have been turned black and white. I will tweak the second half of the volume and see how that proof copy turns out before making both halves available. It is quite possible that the inclusion of color illustrations may increase the final price, but I'm not certain if this is true or not.

    The only complaint I have is that it takes nearly two weeks for these copies to be printed and shipped. I will hopefully soon have both halves ready for you all.

    QUESTION: How many of you would want a printed The Snow on Her Cheek book? · 8:54pm Jun 10th, 2016

    So I had this talk with Michael (whom you know as Nighty), and we had a tiny argument about the value of The Snow on Her Cheek and its place in the realm of OctaScratch fanfiction. So many of you know that The Snow on Her Cheek books are a thing. What puzzled me - and Nighty - was whether any of the readers of The Snow on Her Cheek would want a printed version of the story. Nighty claims that people would want to have a copy on their bookshelves, whereas I am sure it is not worthy of being produced for anyone but close friends. Still, I feel obliged to ask you (as if anyone reads blogs on fimfiction): would you want a printed copy of The Snow on Her Cheek?

    100,000 words, prints available, and more goodies inside. · 2:31am May 30th, 2016

    So yeah, things are going absolutely spectacularly for my writing life right now. In order, here's what happened over the weekend:

    1. Memoirs of a Magic Earth Pony officially breached the 100,000 word barrier, which makes me so excited I think I might explode. That's over a year's worth of continual work and I'm damn proud I've gotten this far. Here's to 300,000 more! or however many it takes to detail Starswirl's life.

    2. The prints for Memoirs of a Magic Earth Pony (volume 1) are finally ready! You can pick up a copy here. I will mention that this is just the price of the book's material and nothing else. I'm not making a dime :D.

    New Chapter! and book update · 5:42am Jan 15th, 2016

    The new chapter of Mass Effect: Gathering Storm is out! You can read it here.

    In other news, I've been hard at work at getting ME: Shepard and the Rainbows, and ME: Shattered Record, Broken Wings edited and prepared for a physical printing into a hard cover book. It's going to be a single print run, and only one copy of each is going to be made for my use. You can see pictures of the work I've done so far in the author's note in the above chapter.

    That was a wild ride. Let me bring you up to speed. · 6:59pm Feb 5th, 2016

    So, as most of you know, Memoirs of a Magic Earth Pony was updated last week with a chapter called 'conclusions'. The story isn't finished, but the first volume is. There are a lot of questions that are unanswered, but that's 70 thousand words of Starswirl's angsty teen years.

    So... I have a present for you guys. Here is a typeset version of the first Volume of memoirs along with two cover images (one for paperback and one for hardback). I can't legally sell this for a profit, and getting a batch shipped to me and then shipped to you is inordinately expensive, so I'm letting you guys take the initiative here.

    Big News and the New Year · 10:41pm Dec 31st, 2015

    You may have noticed that a new chapter hasn't come out yet. I have been working on it, but I have only gotten to the point of writing an outline yet, and haven't actually beginning scripting it out. The reason for this is that I am doing a hard edit on the first two books in the preparation of preparing them for a printing. Whether I do this through an actual book printer, or a more professional version on my own (I made a copy of Shattered Record, Broken wings for myself awhile ago, but I wasn't completely happy with the results), I do not know yet.

    I am excited to get both the book work done, and the next chapter out for all of you to see, and I can definitively say that 2016 is going to be a big year for this series, and for myself!

    Happy New Years, everypony! :heart:

    Winning Pony - Print Edition (Part the Second) (UPDATED) · 4:48am Dec 17th, 2015

    Attention readers!

    Look at your screen. Now at your desk. Now back to your screen. Sadly, your desk is not like your screen.

    “Why not?” you ask? Because it doesn’t have this!

    Glorious, isn’t it? And better still: it’s done.

    Or, halfway, at least. As of yesterday evening (December 16), I’ve just ordered a test-print of volume two of Winning Pony, which is going to take another week or two to print, ship, and check. The running estimate of $70 (USD) per person is in play, but once again, we won’t know for certain until we have a concrete number of orders. Due to the cost of international shipping, we’ll be ordering and shipping out both books together, so everyone is only going to have to pay once.

    Cover Art and Book Printing · 10:11pm Jan 21st, 2016

    I've decided that I'm going to try and get cover art made for this series. Markotonc did a wonderful job with the current cover for Mass Effect: Gathering Storm, but it doesn't quite fit the theme that I've envisioned. To that end, I just joined deviantart and started messaging some of my more favorite artists to see if they accept commissions (who knows if that's the correct way to do things, but there you go).

    This actually ties in to the other part of this blog post, the book printing. While I don't know how comfortable I feel coordinating a large book printing, I do know that I'm putting a lot of work into the indesign files and realized that I want to share it with you all. To that end, there's something out there called the Espresso Book Machine. Learn More About it Here.

    The one danger of online fiction · 4:36pm Apr 24th, 2016

    I'm a big advocate of online fiction. "Print must die," I say.

    - Selling people books printed on paper disconnects reader and writer, both by preventing them from talking to each other, and by separating them into two discrete classes (published writers, and readers).
    - Printing books require capital, which makes a few people gatekeepers, fashion-setters, dictators of what gets written.
    - Online fiction can be animated, hyperlinked, multi-media, interactive.
    - Books are cheap enough to read, but still too expensive to try out, use only parts of, or to collect as references. I can only afford to buy about 3 times as many books as I can read. Most of that money goes to rich people who own publishing houses, not to authors. Online books should mean more money for authors and readers. (It might not work out that way.)

    The Snow on Her Cheek PRINTING Blog Number FINAL! · 5:29pm Sep 17th, 2016

    Dear readers,

    I am proud to announce that the printing project has been completed! Out of all the people who have provided their addresses, all but two have received their books: one because their books have been sent to a military PO box so I cannot track them; and the other because of the national post service of their country failing to deliver the package. In the former situation, I did not ask for payment, so I do not worry; in the latter situation, I have refunded the money.

    All the other people who have provided their addresses have received their books. If you don't believe me, just ask any of them!

    Huge thanks to snakeonmoon, the genius crafter who made the books. Thanks to my family for helping me send all the books as swiftly as possible. And, of course, thanks to all who have ordered the books. I am very glad you guys have received them!

    See you in the future!

    It's Here! · 11:51pm Oct 5th, 2016


    Shown here with my girls.

    My copy of Nightmare Nights has arrived! Still strange seeing my story in print. Like, people can actually buy this. Are buying this. And you can too!

    I'm working through a Terry Pratchett novel right now, but once that's done I'm hoping I can get through this bad boy before the end of the month. I haven't read any of the others, and I'm anxious to show my print neighbors some love!

    I start on page 189, for reference :twilightsmile:

    We're working on getting the print featured on Equestria Daily right now! If you'd like to help out, send them a request at Submit@equestriadaily.com! Be sure to include a link!

    The Life and Times of a Winning Pony Print Project – Mk. II · 6:17am Sep 8th, 2016

    Wait, what?

    That’s right! We’re doing another run.

    Woohoo!

    Ouch! My wallet!

    Don’t worry, it’ll be cheaper this time. We’ve combined both volumes from the previous run into one ubermensch-massive tome, which—while larger—will be more affordable all around.

    Awesome! How much is it going to cost this time around?

    Like last time, that depends on how many copies we end up ordering. The current estimate for domestic orders, including shipping and PayPal fees, is $47 USD. (The price for international orders will be a bit higher.) Remember, we’re printing each copy from scratch—these books aren’t going to be mass-produced, which means they cost more per unit to make. The good news is that $47 is a high estimate, and the more people we get on board with this, the more that cost drops for everyone.

    So go spread the word!

    MLP Hiatus End and Cover Progress · 3:11pm May 16th

    I am pleased to announce that my hiatus from MLP is officially over. :yay: The editing is nearly completed, and progress on the character designs and cover is going quite well. We're reaching the final designs for the Main Six, Spike, and the Cutie Mark Crusaders; once do, we're going to design, draw, ink, and color a new cover for the fic. I aim for the new cover to be up on Friday, when we post Chapter Four of Book Two. We'll then get to work on a cover for the ebook and print editions of Book One. Thank you all so much for being so patient, and I'll see you guys later! :twilightsmile:
