I have decided to debut a short story called "The Wolf Hunter". It's about a man delving into the underworld of a place called Carser City as he searches for his daughter.
I've often been criticized for including too much dialogue in my prose, so I tried something new with this story by not including any quotation marks. It was a challenge, but I think it did improve the overall flow of the writing. Is it something I that want to do with every piece of writing? Absolutely not, but it was a good learning experience.
Outside of expanding my horizons as a writer, I am also releasing this short story as an overture to an upcoming novel called The Animal Inside, which also takes place in Carser City. Not exactly a prequel, "The Wolf Hunter" is meant to serve as background context on some of the events in the novel.
