This is the blurb for my new story called "Hunter" that I plan to begin posting on Tuesday of next week.

Jack was a 14-year-old Arkansas country boy who had to grow up fast. The year was 1911, and he had to provide for his widowed mother. He did that by hunting wild hogs for sale to butcher shops. His mother took him on as her replacement husband. This is the story of how he became the richest man in the county before moving on to other things. The sex is heavy at first, but the story is more of how the boy became a man much more quickly than most.

I should point out that there is a slight flavor of a dialect in the story in that unusual sentence construction is sometimes used for seasoning. Occasionally, you will see "that there" in place of "there" and "what" in place of "that." I am using these because I remember the strain our teachers had in elementary school trying to break many kids from using that sentence construction. I went to many schools in the second grade as my father was transferred from Army base to Army base, usually in the South, in 1942. I never heard these expressions in California or Washington (state, not DC), so they must have been regional.

I hope you like the story and the increased chapter length. Please let me know your feelings about both.
