Biography

PLEASE NOTE: all stories published before the 2016 are under construction.
_______________________________________

My name changes a lot but generally it is L'Poni. I just like to write stories taking place in my fantastic world of Space/Alien Dragons and other creatures. I specialize in bite-size fiction and all of my stories range from poetry and flash fiction. They don't take too long to read. I also sell print versions of them. I'd love to have my own panel someday at Comic Con/Comiket and see my stories turned into anime series and live action movies.

Please support me by buying my e-chapbooks. $1 or more can go a long way~ feedback is also appreciated if you like my work. I want to continue to share my writings with the world.

Smashwords Interview

Why do you write short stories?
I write short stories and poetry because its more fun. I've tried writing novels in the past and failed miserably (The Dragonboys is the only exception). Short stories and poetry are easier, more fun and straight to the point. I also get to add my own bits of Clusterfudge (my made up word for distorted poetry) to my writings.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The Rebirth of Heaven (not currently out yet) will mark my return to the publishing world. Its release will mean something grand. I can't say much, yet.

Smashwords book reviews by L'Poni Baldwin (Poni)

  • The Letter on Nov. 25, 2011

    this is a truly good short story. It's stories like these that make the short story genre shine.
  • The Dragon-Queen of Venus Rescaled on Jan. 28, 2012

    I thought this would be some kind of terrible erotica, but surprisingly it was a military survival story. It was the cover that made me reluctant to read the story, but I'll read anything about a dragon. The eroticaesque cover does not do the story any justice. I suggest the author change the cover. This was a strange story and reminded me of military games like Halo and the survival game Left 4 Dead. I don't really see the creatures as dragons (nor is there any utterance of the name), but all in all this was a good read, albeit a bit slow.
  • Grace on April 30, 2012

    This is why I love short stories. It's short, sweet, and a little bit sensual. I kinda wish it were 3k words longer, but it's perfect at it's current length. This is my favorite story! And I am wondering why you removed me from your favorite authors list (I'm just wondering. Feel free to reply in a review).
