About Pen Stroke
===============
Raised in the rural community of Ten Bale, Pen Stroke spent most of his early years on his family’s farm. However, his true passion lied in reading and learning and he eventually earned his cutie mark when he discovered he had a natural talent for writing.

He eventually left for Canterlot for higher education and currently is employed as an assistant librarian for the Royal Library, his dream to one day become its head librarian. In the meantime, he works the late evening, early morning shifts while continuing his education.

Pen Stroke is very interested in science and magic, especially theoretical branches. Pen Stroke met Batty when the pegasus was checking out a book during the late hours and Pen Stroke overheard him talking about alternate dimensions, a topic that falls heavily in the theoretical. While he finds Batty’s eccentricities to be tiring at times, he has found a strong friend in the Tramplevanian pegasus, who can always be counted on to make a day more interesting.

While Pen Stroke is a very intelligent pony, he is somewhat shy and has trouble with small talk. As to why he has books on his head, the earth pony finds it a more convenient way to carry books when at work, since he lacks magic and doesn’t like wearing saddlebags all day. Though, since he’s gotten so good at it, there are times Pen Stroke will walk around with books on his head for hours, having simply forgotten that they were there.

(In reality, Pen Stroke is a Wyoming native who is currently studying Computer Science in L.A. California, though he really did grow up on a farm. He and Batty Gloom were already online writing buddies for several years before Pen Stroke found out about Friendship Is Magic from some teammates on a class programming project. He gave it a shot, but was not a true brony until he and Batty Gloom ran into each other again thanks to Equestria Daily. Now, thanks to Batty, Pen Stroke is neck deep in the fandom and loving it.)

Interests

So, as some folks have been messaging over the past few days, a certain website has put up for purchase new copies of Past Sins.

I am happy to say that this is all true, and in a good way. For a little history: The Ministry of Image has been around for 3+ years. They started out primarily doing printings of Russian translations of popular MLP FiM stories, including a Russian translation of Past Sins. Now, they've taken a step to expand their scope to include English versions.

And I am happy to say that Past Sins stands among the stories currently available in English. Furthermore, this 3rd edition features brand new cover art and per-chapter art! So if you've been waiting with baited breath for a chance to purchase Past Sins, that opportunity has arrived.

A few important bullet points:
1) I've asked that this printing to be done as close to cost as possible, and I've been assured by my contact with the Ministry of Image that is true. I am personally not taking any profit from this, and I'm doing it entirely by choice.
2) I have given this group permission to do the printing, but any purchase or shipping issues you experience if you order a book can only be resolved by the Ministry of Image
3) Right now Past Sins is in a pre-order phase. Shipping, I've been told, will begin in September. 
4) The Ministry of Image has a long track record of successful story printing projects, but as always, be careful when shopping online.

And, that's about it. I want to extend a special thank you to the Ministry of Image for reaching out to me and making this possible. I simply do not have the time to ever hope to do this myself, so it takes groups like Equestria Publications and now the Ministry of Image to make projects like this possible. Hopefully, we'll see even more fandom favorites get the printed treatment they richly deserve.
