Poetry fans, aspiring poets, and/or romantics might enjoy the blog Love Poem for Him, where Joan shares advice about how to write poems for a boyfriend or husband. She also posts videos of love poems for him (including one of my poems), and might eventually post some of her own poems.

Book Announcement: The Misfit of Supernatural High (Supernatural High Series) by Shawn C. Sproatt, illustrated by Anastasia Cooper.

Description: 15-year-old Wanda Windsor is not the most popular student at Hecate High. In fact, amongst her fellow witches, the fairies, the shifters, the vampires, and the werewolves, she's one of the least popular students. However, she never thought anyone hated her enough to try attack her. During her sophomore year someone uses mind control on other students to force them to hurt Wanda, and she manages to just barely escape each attack. Wanda isn't sure who would want to hurt her, but she's fairly certain it has to do with the introverted new student who has visions of the future.

When she isn't dodging death, Wanda spends her time trying to pass Geometry, avoiding (unsuccessfully) the subject of boys, and getting into mischief with her friends.
