The Pipe Predicament – a Sci-Fi Mystery Story

“Remember what I used to say back on Muapra? Don’t trust nobody.” 


“And don’t you say a word about the double negative. It’s a good motto.” 

Before the argument could continue, Vargi heard the distinct sound of claws scraping against the metal flooring. . . .

The Pipe Predicament Chapter 1: The Muapran Disagreement

Two years ago, I wrote and posted an introductory story about an intergalactic detective named Shera Nox. Now, as I begin to create new stories with Shera and her crew on the Endeavour, I’m reworking the old story and reposting it on Simily! Today, you can read Chapter 1 of “The Pipe Predicament,” the first Shera Nox story – and one amazing perk of posting on Simily is that for every read, I get paid! If you enjoy the story, please feel free to like, follow, and leave me comment on Simily.

Thanks for reading!

Why do I ask for donations? This money all goes towards helping me pay for marketing, book services (editing, cover art, etc.), learning opportunities, and writing-related subscriptions that I have to purchase myself due to being an indie author and a blogger who posts tons of resources and stories for free. Every dollar counts! Thank you so much, and God bless you. ♥️ E.J.
