A Psychological Horror to ponder.

Dive into the mind of David Kummer, an up and coming writer who’s not afraid to plunge us into the depth of his imagination.

If you read the works of Ramsey Campbell or Bret Easton Ellis, then give this book a try.  There are mixed reviews on this book, but I personally enjoy a story that brings the reader into the mind of a psycho and doesn’t spell out every step of the way. As a young adult, David Kummer has the chops to bring us there.

Join Cyrus Street as he returns to his hometown, where fifteen years previous the church burned taking many townspeople with it. Now that he’s back townspeople start to die. Through flashbacks, we see his checkered past, his family and the love of his life.

And a darkness that haunts his mind.

Delve into the past, present, and future in Until we burn.

 

 

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

Horror Review “Dreaming at the top of my lungs”

 Twelve Dark Tales From The Mind Of Israel Finn

DTPDiverse tales:

-A man who is faced with the prospect of losing the most important thing in his life—his son—but instead loses his mind. And then finds himself trapped in a waking nightmare with no way out.
-A frustrated man who curses life for having the audacity to pass him by, but discovers how it feels to be truly forsaken when the universe chooses to teach him a horrifying lesson.
-An outcast who must decide between vengeance and forgiveness in a world turned upside down by war and famine.
-A woman on trial in a world where telling the truth is a crime.
-A man who is living with a very odd houseguest, a visitor who has no concept of war
-A boy who lives in constant terror of someone who is supposed to love and protect him, but who has betrayed that trust. A horror story that examines the real-life beasts who walk among us every day.

Israel Finn is a top-shelf author, he fits right in with the likes of King, Bloch, Ketchum, Matheson and on and on!

Many people are leery about picking up a single author anthology – especially one by an unknown indie –  but with this book, you are left wanting more. Each story is strong enough to stand alone. His writing draws you in, cradles you and just when you think you’re safe, knocks you for a loop. They range from phycological to emotional to out of this world. With 35 reviews, most 5 stars, you don’t have to take my word for it.

Reviewers say:

Dreaming at the Top of My Lungs is a cut above.

Israel is a phenom author who will only get even better.

He paints brief pictures of various horrors—monsters, atrocities, and tragedies—that disturb and provoke but never overstay their welcome.

Well written, engaging and at times disturbing.

To say Israel Finn can write is the understatement of the year. His stories will leave your head spinning and you begging for more

I was lucky enough to grab a paperback when it was first released, with this cover. Now I know I have a jewel on my shelf that one day will be highly valued.

 

 

 

 

 

I am anxiously awaiting a novel to drop. Will it or won’t it? Perhaps Israel will comment and let us know. Until then, get your copy today!

Reviews

Why do we need reviews to validate ourselves? We don’t.


When you get a Five-star review you jump for joy, shout it from the roof-tops, you did great! What happens when you get a two star, or even worse a one star, and that’s only because they have to leave a star to review; then they proceed to tear you to shreds.

First of all, neither should matter to you personally.

Take every review and learn from them. The good ones point out what you are doing right, and the bad ones show you what you are doing wrong.

Not every review counts either, your moms Five star — nil. The haters One star, with no insight — nil

As long as you are paying attention, learning, listening, and growing, then you are going to be fine.

Do yourself a favor and go check out the reviews on your favorite books, or authors, even they will have some reviews that make you want to scream WTF!

Be Kind or Be Helpful — Don’t Be a Jerk


The best thing you can do for a writer is leave a review. A positive review, or even a mid-level review with some insight into areas that need work.

If you come across work that is not up to par, the best thing you can do is contact them privately. Talk to them, be kind and use constructive criticism. Help someone improve and grow.

Don’t write a scathing reviewing that just says, “you suck”, or bather on about their lack of character development. This is not helpful and makes you, as the reviewer, look bad.

Even worse are reviews that really have nothing to do with the work, just — “ I didn’t like it.” How is this helpful to anyone?

My mother always said, “If you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Well I can’t agree 100% I think you should say something, in private to them personally.

You never know what others are dealing with on the other end of the computer. Who they are, nor what their lives entail. Reaching out can save a life, or boost moral, or maybe they’ll tell you to it’s none of your business.

Find out, leave a review — or reach out — or say nothing — and move on. Just don’t be a jerk, there are too many out there already.
