Sabrina is an average young American woman who struggles in the relationship department. However, her life becomes more than average in a matter of seconds when four men in black suits and sunglasses follow her home.
She’s really a faerie princess with a royal family in Scotland, but that doesn’t mean her life is suddenly a real life faerie tale. On the contrary, her life is suddenly in danger and if she isn’t battling the bad guys, she’s running for her life and finding possible romance that might not get the chance to blossom.
This is another book by Jeannette DiLouie, who seems to have a talent for multiple genres. Not So Human puts a new spin on faerie stories with the Human Preservation and Advancement Committee out to get Princess Sabrina and all of faeriedom. The story had me on the edge of my seat when the HPAC followed her home and her best friend, Deanda, tells her they have to pack and leave their apartment. That’s when the run for her life begins. The faerie characters are endearing, the HPAC, not so much.
This story is full of action, suspense, a little bit of humor and a touch of romance. Who could ask for anything more?
Not So Human by Jeannette DiLouie is the first of a four book series of “Faerietales”. I can’t wait to get the rest of the series to find out what happens to Princess Sabrina and a certain male faerie I’ve come to love.
I’ve heard Blitz Poems that were written by young adults. I can’t say they’re a favorite type of poetry to me. Usually, they seem so random. So, I challenged myself to write one because I found the rules/pattern challenging, and because I wanted to see if I could stick with a theme the whole way through the poem.
Therefore, I wrote this Blitz Poem keeping the novel I am writing in mind. Though not all of these things will appear in my novel, they are all from the same time period.
The reason there is no punctuation is because you are supposed to try and read a Blitz Poem all in one breath.

Tracks in the snow
Tracks made by horses
Hearts in love
Promises in the dark
Times of danger
Times of love
Love in bloom
Love in mind
Mind your manners
Mind your own
Land and sea
Winds of change
Winds filled with dust
Dust on your boots
Dust in your mouth
Mouth for kissing
Mouth of the river
River of no return
Return to sender
Home to you
Home in my heart
I’ve been exploring marketing ideas and strategies so that I can plan ahead for when my book is ready to be published and marketed. I came across this interesting post from J.M. Hackman. If you’re interested in marketing your book(s), click the Source link to read the entire article.
What exactly is a street team? Many people don’t know what they are or what they do. Street teams started back in the 90’s with urban record labels. Super-fans would pass out demo tapes…

Smoky blue eyes and a dimpled smile.
Cowboy hat and a cowboy swagger.
Ropin’, wranglin’, and ridin’ for miles;
He’s what made the American West matter.
Sitting tall in the saddle through snow, wind, and rain
Nothing could quench his adventurous spirit.
Blazing trails or following those of wagon trains,
Crossing ground in an undetermined circuit.
He was tougher than leather.
From drivin’ cattle to deliverin’ mail;
Ridin’ and workin’ in all kinds of weather;
The cowboy’s life — an old romantic tale.
