• "Starlight Glimmer and the Secret Suite" and "Ponyville Confidential" get Covers


    Starlight Glimmer's big chapter book solo act is coming out in August, and now has a cover. We don't have a synopsis for it, but the previous title of "space-time suite" seems to hint that it could have something to do with SHATTERING THE BOUNDS OF REALITY. Fingers crossed! Order it on Amazon over here.

    And joining that, the Ponyville Confidential book joins it with it's own cover. Get the details on that one below the break!





    Description:

    Beloved by young girls around the world, Hasbro's My Little Pony franchise has been mired in controversy since its debut in the early 1980s. Critics dismissed the cartoons as toy advertisements, and derided their embrace of femininity. The 2010 debut of the openly feminist My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic renewed the backlash, as its broad appeal challenged entrenched notions about gendered entertainment.
    This first comprehensive study of My Little Pony explores the history and cultural significance of the franchise through Season 5 of Friendship Is Magic and the first three Equestria Girls films. The brand has continued to be on the receiving end of a sexist double standard regarding commercialism in children's entertainment, while masculine cartoons such as the Transformers have been spared similar criticism. The high-profile fans known as Bronies are also discussed, covering the media's problematic reaction to them and the Bronies' response when the My Little Pony cartoons didn't conform to their expectations.
    Get it on Amazon with an October 19th release date!

    Thanks to The Illustrious Q for the heads up.
