Writing changed my life. It can change yours too.

I began writing as a child, but I was terrified to share it with anyone. When I hit my 40’s and the dreaded midlife crisis began I was asking “IS THIS IT?” and truly disappointed with where I’d led myself to. Life was work, watch TV, repeat.

Thanks to my dear friend Lisa Crawford who informed me of self-publishing, I dusted off the novel that’d been sitting in my drawer for twenty years and I was off!

Unchanged since first loaded Jan 2016 http://Cataclysm was my life long project.

Then I began blogging and connecting on social media with other authors. The scariest next step was live interviews! I tell you I was terrified for my first one. I felt like an imposter talking about my new career. However, once I started chatting and learning that everyone else feels the same way, all my jitters fell away. Don’t let fear stop you! Now I’ll talk to anyone about anything, that’s huge for me. A quick 4 yrs. later and here I am doing an interview with the local paper.

Put yourself out there, the worst that can happen is people say no – and they will – however it’s the YES’S that count and those will come too.

Essence Asunder by Feind Gottes

One man.
Two Fiends.
A cold, dark basement. A table of torture devices. A garrote chair.
Jacob Falgoust has woken into his own private Hell where Pain and Misery greet him with open arms.
A reason wrapped in riddles of beauty and pain may be his only chance to escape the suffering. Jacob must find the answer before his very essence is torn asunder.

The Gold Collection by

David Duane Kummer

41ITCunL3IL
Around every corner, another mystery…
In every alley, the unknown lurks…
You were scared of the dark for good reason.

The Gold Collection Box Set is a compilation of all the books I published during high school, including My Abigail, She, She Watches, and Until We Burn. It also includes an exclusive collection of short stories titled As Trees Turned Away. You can buy each of the four novels individually on Amazon, or purchase them all for a lower cumulative price here.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TVQJ9SY

My Abigail–
Abigail had a secret
She was different… but I loved her.
But after it ended, there were no words to describe her. No way to make sense of it all.
Something so sweet, so loving, so gentle… in the end, it was all terrible.

In this gripping, psychological thriller, Caleb meets the girl of his dreams. Abigail is pretty, funny, and she cares about him like nobody ever has. But underneath her appearance is a monster that nobody can control… and nobody knows about.

When he is confronted with the truth, Caleb must make a terrible decision. Will he love the person who’s hurt him? Or will the secret tear them apart?

What even Abigail doesn’t understand is that she’s dangerous. More dangerous than either of them realize. But is it too late to turn back?

Until We Burn–
Cyrus Street never forgot about his home. It was always in the back of his mind, with the memories, the nightmares. Alluring, always pulling him back. There were so many questions unanswered. Something he left behind.

When he finally returns, he’s drawn back into a world even worse than he remembers. Werifesteria, with its dark secrets and murky past, never changed. It remains a cesspool, a danger. There’s something about the town unnerving, yet enticing. It isn’t normal. It isn’t sane.

As soon as Cyrus steps back into it, the murders begin. He’s the only one can catch this madman, if he can only control his mind.

Everybody remembers the fire. Everybody remembers him. But there’s a darkness he’s buried inside his own head. And unless he can remember, the entire town will burn.

She–
She Watches Always.

Small river towns have always had urban legends and teenage boys who love their sister. Even every city has these. But this legend is different, and Michael is unique.

Michael’s only a typical teenager in this small rivertown. Along with his three friends, he grows up and survives school; he laughs at jokes and gets to know the town around him. But everything changes one night when his sister is taken. Everything is different for him and his friends, as their friendly town begins to feel and look more sinister.

With the help of a detective, they uncover secrets and plots that point towards the only hope for saving his sister.

Together, they will search to the ends of the earth, when in reality the answer is close nearby. In their hometown.

Together, they will face the enemy that threatens their town, their lives, and the future of everyone they love. It is the adversary with many faces and none; the foe that cannot be killed and was never born.

They go together.
She waits alone.

She Watches–
She still watches.

The nights grew longer and the streets became empty. There was nothing left in the city. What she had taken, none could restore. The terrible woman of the dark, who lived in the forest, who lived to destroy. She is a mystery; She was always mystery. And now She is back.

When Daniel Smith is lured home 20 years later, he has a family of his own and kids to care for. It’s been a long time away from Hardy, from the town where so much happened. There are demons waiting beneath every sidewalk and home -demons only he knows about.

Friends. Nightmares. Fears. Death. It all rises up from the murky past of the city.

Some things are meant to never come back.

My name is David Kummer, and I live in Madison, Indiana, a small town on the Ohio River. There’s lots of history and creepy places, which have influenced my writings. In my book SHE, most of the places and buildings are based off similar settings here in my home town, although I’ve changed them so you won’t know which ones exactly (if you don’t ask).

I would love to get to know you better, so email me or check out my blog at davidkummer.com. I’m always glad to give out review copies ( most of the time), but love it even more if you pick up a copy to buy. They’re all cheap. Reviews are super appreciated.

You may have read some great authors before and some fascinating books, but you’ve never had an experience like this. Try something and let me convince you.

The Indie Reviewers, once again Free reviews! Which we all need to pimp our books. The one big bonus with finding these reviewers is that most of them have their own blogs and post their reviews on them. This gives you a completely different audience with every single review. The hard part is finding a reviewer who is not so bogged down that they have the time to accept you.
