The last thing I’d thought up for this novel was a proper title. It’s not something I’d ever considered through the whole editing process.
The working title was so horrifically Pseud’s Corner because of the source material; it was never going to stick. I vaguely decided whatever the actual title would be had to be snappy. Not for me The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-time. On the other hand, not a one-word title either because I’m a bit worried I’ll be held up against works with a similar theme. So I thought I’d plump for a three word job, in the form of something like ‘The $adjective $noun’.
(See, if it works for Robert Jordan or George RR Martin, it’s fine by me.)
I just wasn’t coming up with anything good. My dear husband made a few suggestions over dim sum one evening-
Him: Something about selkies would be good.
Him: What about ‘Selkie Moon’?
Him: What’s wrong with that?
