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!!
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.
