n a Post-Apocalyptic World, a warrior and his family are driven underground, fighting for their very survival.

When they do emerge, the futuristic planet they discover is very different from the one they left behind. Ruled by an evil presence which dominates and controls what is left of mankind, Earth has been reduced to a violent place of darkness, grief and destruction.

I call him HIM follows the journey of this unnamed warrior as he loses both his family and his mind. As he hits rock bottom, all he can think of is his insatiable yearning for revenge until he meets a young girl called Angelica who shows him the true power of faith. Her youth, innocence and strength of character remind him of everything he has lost and the things that really matter.

But as the armies of the world rise up for the ultimate battle of good versus evil, can Angelica help him regain his sanity and rediscover himself before it is too late?

Author Scott W. Kimak takes the classic theme of good and evil and gives it a modern twist in this inspiring tale of the importance of keeping your faith in the bleakest of circumstances.

Deviously Sincere

by Alayna Hallward

Mystery Thriller

Purchase: Amazon

Release Date: March 20, 2020

The media has compared the FBI's current serial killer to Jack the Ripper. Not because of the way he kills, but because he can evade law enforcement. This killer has an agenda, he believes his acts will purify women right down to their corrupt souls. While his work is well known, the FBI still cannot do anything. That is until Agent Tilda Wain decides to think outside of the box. The best way to catch a serial killer is to seek out the help of another. The only killer that can be of assistance is one that holds the same beliefs. Even though Hyde is their ideal helper, his views and time in the asylum make him unreliable. While Hyde does hate women, Tilda knows a way around such trivial matters. In her attempt to gain more information, Tilda soon finds herself in the line of fire. If she persists in her search, more than her honor will be lost.


The book does contain mild gore as noted in some of the reviews posted online. I will admit that since this was my first book, I did not join the Amazon Kindle program. Despite that, I do have a store ( and I can generate coupons. I also have personal physical and digital copies of my book that I don't mind giving out for free in return for reviews.

As Daniel learns more about the package’s contents, he unlocks the history of three families -- one American and two German – through tumultuous times, from the end of the First World War to the rise of Adolf Hitler, the Second World War, the Holocaust, and through to three Middle East wars. Along the way, he gets entangled in the web of the Mossad, Israel’s top secret spy agency and Naomi one of its beautiful operatives, and is ultimately faced with a life-altering choice – and the opportunity to right the most heinous of wrongs.

Many oSwf us during this world pandemic, stuck in our homes, isolated from other people and sometimes our own families, need to turn to books for solace more than ever.

My book is a true story that follows my journey from sitting on a lumpy futon, overweight, out of shape and picking Pringle shards out of my navel, to me running a 50K ultra-marathon. It’s not a new story it’s just told from the perspective of a “grassroots runner” who just wanted to finish the races I entered.

It’s about my struggles, my achievements, the barriers, the pain, the people I met and how I pushed myself to the brink while trying to achieve things I never thought possible.

Will they heal their hearts or will they break them?

Milano and Veronica were able to solve their differences and live together in Milano’s house. Like magnets, they can never be apart. An attraction so strong and deeply rooted, no amount of bickering or quarrels can tear them apart, nor their desire to be with one another.

However, family interference and the nature of Milano’s job begins to weigh heavily on their relationship and Milano slowly veers away from Veronica. And there are new players in town that add more tension: Milano’s former mistress, Bianca Lesti, and his office secretary, Susan Davis. These women are battle-ready for Milano’s heart.

Will Veronica lose this time? Will she be able to sustain the tempo of her growing love for her man? Will she finally win the coldhearted and invincible Milano?

All these things will be revealed in the continuation of the series VENEZIANI FAMILY (FATEFUL ITALIAN PASSION).
