Oh, I saw this on Patricia Lynne’s site and I couldn’t stop laughing.  Then I realised I just had time to join in myself.  And after a traumatic time in the dentist’s chair yesterday, with everything else that’s been going on recently, I thought it was about time I lightened up.

PonyFest is the invention of Rebecca Enzor, and the idea to make one of more of the characters in your book into My Little Pony characters.  I hope you’re laughing!

So… here is what my hard-bitten asteroid miners, Big Pete and the Swede, really look like!!

Pet & the Swede ponies

I reckon that’s a pretty good likeness, even if I do say it myself!

Pete and the Swede are my heroes in The Perihelix, the first of a new science fiction series that will be out in January.  You can get a sampler to give you a general idea of the universe they’re in, or follow their website at Viridianseries.uk.

The Perihelix: two orichalcum miners, three escorts, and a whole pile of trouble as the men get drawn back from the wilds of the Viridian System to face their destinies.

I can’t enter the competition at PonyFest as I’m in the UK, and I’ve broken the rules to let Pete be in a sitting pose anyway.  But you can check out other mad fools/geniuses who have made their characters into ponies by checking the comments in Rebecca Enzor’s post.

    and now, of course, I realise I could have placed them slightly differently….

    A mustachioed pony! That’s so awesome ^_^

    Thanks for playing along even though you can’t win 🙂 If only shipping wasn’t so expensive across the ocean!

      That’s ok, I know what you mean! It did me a lot of good to do something nice and fun today, thanks!

    I’m suffering moustache envy now.

      Pete is aspiring to your mutton chops, David 🙂

    So cute (and the placement is a bit funny, but it made me laugh)! Love the bronies and your descriptions of them.
