About the Author

David Fingerman

During the summer months when the sun is shining and birds are singing, David is perfectly content to sit in his office, with blinds drawn, typing away at the computer. His favorite day of the year is the first day toward the end of summer that’s cool enough to pull a flannel shirt from the closet.

As a student at the University of Minnesota, David realized that if he switched his major from journalism to speech, he could graduate that quarter. It was a no-brainer. After 24 years of working in the court system, he walked away to write full time – another no-brainer.

Two Degrees Closer to Hell will be his second collection of short stories. He has also written three other novels.

David is married and lives in Minneapolis.

Emilie's Evaluation

Two Degrees Closer to Hell is a single-author anthology of short stories about demons, death, and the unknown where tales ranging from supernatural to science fiction to downright horror fill the pages.

There were a few spelling and grammar errors, but they didn’t hinder my reading much.

I would recommend this collection of short stories to lovers of horror as well as fans of spooky campfire stories. Despite some sexual situations and foul language, I feel Two Degrees Closer to Hell would be suitable for older, more mature teens.

Overall, I enjoyed each short story and each glimpse into the author’s mind. I’m usually a fan of novels rather than short stories because it’s easier for me to connect with the characters. With this collection of shorts however, I found myself at the mercy of my Kindle’s page-turning speed, desperate to read more without pause. I made a small list of favorites including Until After Death Do Us Part, Hell Mouth, Camp Conifer, Freak Accident, Tax Exempt Status, and Mourning a Friend. I loved the imagery and twists in those particular stories. Having never heard of David Fingerman prior to signing up for this tour, I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I can’t wait to pick up more of his works in the near future.

Emilie’s Review of A Night at the Asylum by Jade McCahon

91TENAW1aYL._SL1500_AmazonAmazon UKB&NSmashwordsGoodreads

A Night at the Asylum is the story of the single most important twelve hours of 20-year-old Sara Featherstone’s life. Sara is just a normal girl whose family has a tragic past. That is, until she dreams a very real dream where her dead brother, Tommy, speaks to her cryptically.  In twelve hours she will be faced with a rapid-fire turn of events that include communicating with her dead brother, finding love, watching her friend become the vessel for a spirit guide, and uncovering the twisted truth behind the corrupt cops in her hometown. In just twelve hours, she will find out just who the man responsible for not just the death of her brother, but also the disappearance of her friend’s sister, and all the answers are in the asylum.

I found no spelling or grammar errors and the plot flowed smoothly in time with the urgency of the characters’ situations.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the paranormal, supernatural, horror, and thriller/suspense genres. The content of the book has elements that I feel would appeal to a broad spectrum of readers.

All in all, A Night at the Asylum was an amazing read. I felt the characters’ urgency and enjoyed learning and growing with Sara in just the short time the story spans. I never wanted the story to end and found myself going back to it frequently because it had such a powerful draw.  Mrs. McCahon definitely has talent as a writer and I look forward to seeing more works from her in the future.
