Miss Delight's Mistake Released Today

Miss Delight and Odyssey universe came out of some of the pieces in my first flash fiction collection. They were unexpected, and a lot of fun to write, and a new writing universe was born. This short story sets the stage for the entry of yet another character, Melerom, whose story is due to release in a fortnight, and it ties it to the universe of "The Reptiles' Blade". "Miss Delight's Mistake" is another short story to choose this setting as its home, and it released today.

People are disappearing on the close archaeological world of Jehornak, including an Odyssey operative’s sister, but that’s not why he’s there. It seems other people have gone missing, too, people with relatives rich enough to pay Odyssey to discover exactly what is happening in the mysterious cavern known as The Ballroom. However, when things go south on the mission, can Agent Delight keep her reputation, and make sure her operative comes out alive

Miss Delight's Mistake is available from Smashwords, Kobo, DriveThruFiction, OmniLit, and, shortly, from Amazon, as well.
