Selena – the first five chapters

As I’ve said before, Selena: Sea Nymph is my first foray into the paranormal and fantasy arena. I have intentionally avoided reading mermaid or similar stories because I’d prefer my creative notions are not influenced by other authors.

In a relatively short time, I’ve revised the original blurb and the introductory chapter. My Work in Progress for this tale now boasts the new blurb and the first five chapters. I have enabled ‘comments’ for the blurb and all of the chapters, a decision not made lightly.

If you’d like to read and comment it is not a prerequisite that you either read or write sci-fi, fantasy or paranormal. You can use the links from this post, or select chapters from the Work in Progress menu.

Why am I taking such a step so early with this story?

There are authors who are comfortable writing one genre, their work is well-received, and therefore this produces a win-win situation.

I thrive on pushing myself, stretching the boundaries of my creativity. On many occasions, for me, a single image will inspire a new short story or novel, and so it joins my shortlist.

I’m hoping that any responses to these early chapters are encouraging, but we shall see.


Chapter 1 – Realisation

Chapter 2 – Friendship or Alliance?

Chapter 3 – Negotiations

Chapter 4 – Friends or Foes?

Chapter 5 – Dangerous Assumptions
