Overview

G.O.D. is the story of two men, from two different backgrounds bonded by one universal plight – poverty and the need to escape it. Wally’s father is murdered early in his life leaving his mother to care for him alone. Unable to shake the addiction she has developed, Wally’s mother is consumed in the consumption of drugs leaving Wally to fend for himself on the streets of Buffalo, NY. Hamid’s father is executed by a firing squad because of a political scandal leaving Hamid as the sole bread-winner for his family in Helmand, Afghanistan. Though, separated by an entire ocean, Wally and Hamid’s lives are strangely similar and eventually these lives clash in a bloody war sparked by the murder of Hamid’s closest friend Luqman. Bigger than Hamid and Wally’s story however, is the theme of God that permeates the novel and his presence, or lack thereof, in the lives of the characters. G.O.D. is a story of the atrocities that prevail when divine law is missing in the hearts and minds of men.

Meet the Author

Born and raised in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Saleem is the product of a single-parent home. Though surrounded by the evils of the street life he always found an escape in music and literature. Music and books were a fantasy world he could escape to when the pressures of the real world became overbearing. At a young age he began to pen poems, songs, and short stories. This love of writing, and ability to do so, developed over the years and at the age of 21, he began his writing career. After two attempts between the ages of 21 and 24 he figured he had finally gotten it right. The death of his close friend motivated the writer to become more reflective and introspective with his work. This friend, Kareem Williams, became the spirit of the protaganist as well as other characters in his first release GET IN, GET OUT. Once released, realizing the readers may have fallen in love with the character Lexi, the fiance of Marquise, he decided to pen LOVE AND THE GAME, which served as an extended version to GET IN, GET OUT for those who wanted to know what Lexi's fate would be after losing Marquise and being forced to fend for herself. After the critically acclaimed LOVE AND THE GAME, Saleem finished a manuscript he had begun about human trafficking. in CRYING FOR TEARS, Saleem hoped to highlight the parallels between young women who are lured by money to prostitute in an urban setting and the horrific global trade of women for the same reason. Saleem then went on to release the SINCERELY YOURS series, which were anthologies written in order to bring readers closer to the author. SINCERELY YOURS II was released May 12th and another novel titled G.O.D. is slated for release some time in 2012.
