• BABSCon Got a Very Special Somepony: G.M. Berrow! (Plus, Hearts & Hooves Day Contest!)

    It's that day again everypony! You can start your Hearts and Hooves Day off easy and snuggle up to your special somepony while reading a good book from G. M. Berrow, who will be at BABSCon this April. Plus BABSCon has their H&H yearly photo and art contest, giving away two pairs of 3 day passes!

    Check it out the full release after the break!

    On the day to celebrate love, what better way to show our love for you than to announce that we have My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show writer and licensed novelist, G.M. Berrow joining us this April 22-24?

    It’s true! The writer of one of the best Pinkie Pie-centric episodes yet, “The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows,” will be a Guest of Honor at BABSCon. Her novel credits are already extensive—Pinkie Pie and the Rockin’ Ponypalooza Party, Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell, plus titles for the rest of the Mane 6, Princesses Celestia & Luna, and Discord. Oh yeah, she also wrote all the Daring Do titles! Her next two books, Lyra and Bon Bon and the Mares from S.M.I.L.E. and Daring Do and the Eternal Flower, will be published between now and BABSCon 2016, so be sure to have copies of your own to get signed!

    Berrow joins Lauren Faust, Nicole Oliver, Kelly Sheridan, Josh Haber, Katie Cook, Andy Price, and Jenn Blake among our Guests of Honor, so don’t miss out. Register for BABSCon 2016 now!

    But wait! There’s more!
