Friday November 21st, 2014 marks the release day for the paranormal short story Huntin’ , the latest from author V. L. Murray.
Huntin’ is a thriller which highlights the teachings of the Medicine Wheel as it lures the reader into the world of a young man trying to escape his past.
Here’s an excerpt from the story.
“Usually it was Hawk who called to her from above and helped her on her day’s journey, communicating with single piercing cries whenever she needed guidance. Hawk would appear in her dreams, sometimes showing the future.
He had come two weeks ago as she was dreaming, and told her the story of the hunt camp to come. She sighed again with resolve, knowing what she must do if Spirit was ever to return to her beloved son. Now, Wolf howled once more, and this time Jack looked up as if listening to its voice.
“I think he’s calling to you, my son. Wolf has been around a lot lately.”
A wry smile touched Jack’s face. “Maybe it’s just because he’s being driven out of his habitat by all the construction around here. Maybe he’s just complaining. I would.”
There was no point in arguing. He would understand soon enough. Now, she needed to continue her preparations for their journey. Much food had to be assembled, equipment and clothing, tools and tents. There were lots of things to do. And then there was some personal preparation she needed to finish. She hoped Hawk would come tonight in her dreams and refresh her memory of the future to be. She would find some sage for smudge and make herself ready for the night.”
More coming this week on the story and the author.
