All the kids at preschool picked their favorite colors, and they made a chart to put on the front door.

You saw the spread you'd expect - a few pinks, mostly green and blue and purple, a few hold-outs for red and orange. And my kid, whose favorite color has been black for at least a year, all by herself in that column. My poor mother, who would love to make her frilly, colorful dresses, keeps asking despairingly, "Is black really still her favorite color? Really?"

I think it is telling that Guppy's favorite song right now is Bad Reputation, in all its rebellious glory. We would listen to nothing else ever if she had her way.

My darling little punk-and-black-loving daughter. <3

And my Kickstarter passed 100% Woo! We're working on the second title now, Equine Enchantment, and I released the cover for the third:

(Also, I am mortified to find that I mixed up two of the other Moms this morning during preschool dropoff, and can only hope that they both have Sudden Specific Amnesia and don't remember me opening my mouth.)

You are raising a tiny Joan Jett! THE 80s AREN'T DEAD.

(I have no punk icons, so my cutest Halloween icon will have to do.)

Congrats on the funding! pssst, you're missing an "s" on Wyverns. Unless there is only one! I really love the branding stripe on the cover; it looks spiffy!

OOPS! I was going to double-check that and forgot to. Fixed, and off to fix other iterations of it.

No yellow? My heart, it breaks!

This punk-and-spikes loving Guppy is the same one often photographed in pink-and-pink with an Anna hat with braids, and/or a tutu? Or in a snow white dress? Perhaps she and your mother could compromise on something frilly in black and silver? (Or black and pink, or ...)

Oooh, dragons. Darn it, I was trying not to be tempted. <ponders>

Congratulations on raising your own little baby-bat! Gothlings spontaneously arise and are to be cherished. You'll never have to listen to Justin Bieber with this child, but you might have to listen to The Cure or Bela Lugosi's Dead.

Your daughter has excellent taste in music. :)

I told Kickstarter to "remind me" so I'll see this again next pay period - I'm interested in one of the stretch goals! Or maybe two. I am weak when it comes to equines and dragons. I have a big expense coming up, though, so I won't know ahead of time if I can pledge.  

Love the Guppy story! :D
