The paranormal beings for today are the Naiad and the Noggle. The Naiad is a kind of Nymph (which could be #3 for today) that has power over bodies of fresh water. The Noggle is a small supernatural horse that has powers. I believe I've heard of the Naiad at some point. I ca't remember where though. The Noggle, however is new to me, but very interesting. I must do more research!
Now for the "N" books:
Nature's Unbalance (The Chosen) by Andrea Buginsky
Neverlove by Angela Brown
No Write to Die by Tom Immins
Nocturnal Embers Anthology by Various Authors
NOIF: A Mind Blowing Short Story Collection by Tuan Ho
"N" authors . . . Luckily I've come into contact with one today. I believe she is the first indie author with a last name beginning with "N' I've met.
And here are the "N" characters:
Nikolaus Jarvings-Mirrors of Anguish by R.P. Kraul
Nicodemus from Flawed: Outsider & Flawed: Protector by Becca J. Campbell (not yet published, link takes you to her site)
