Featured Author – Kaamil Garyson

Today I’m excited to introduce to you, Kaamil Garyson. He’s from Atlanta, Georgia and is a self-published paranormal and dark drama author. So for all you paranormal and dark drama fans out there, stick around with the rest of us and learn about Kaamil.

Kaamil Garyson is a self-proclaimed workaholic. He normally puts in 16 to 18-hour days writing, studying, and networking. You can tell by looking at his picture that he’s all about getting the job done. He is a student of the game who offers a plethora of free short stories, poems, and screenplays on his blog This is a great site, so please stop on by and find out more about Kaamil. He is also forming an author services website called Authors of the Free World that will be launching soon

Kaamil’s Motivation for writing Nemesis

Nemesis is a paranormal story of the feminist movement, demonic influence, and a selfless Soldier's love and perseverance. As a Wounded Warrior, Kaamil initially wanted to write a memoir of his experiences in Iraq after serving two tours. However, his PTSD made it too difficult to write of his most harrowing moments, particularly the night an IED blast changed his life and military career forever. After dabbling with short stories, Kaamil decided to create a character that is loosely based on his military life, both in garrison and in theater. Soon after, Kaamil learned of the religious reasons he suffers from sleep paralysis. Supposedly, it is a succubus named Lilith who targets sexually weak men. He learned of this from a self-empowered woman in his hometown. Nemesis was born...

I would like to take a moment to personally say how honored I am to have a military man as our first featured author. Thank you, Kaamil for your service and sacrifice in protecting our Freedom. It is truly appreciated.

Motivation to Self-Publish

I believe in the notion of controlling my own destiny. Before becoming a writer, I spent the better part of 12 years as a music producer, running my own indie label. I have always believed in entrepreneurship. Simply put, there is little a publisher can do for me that I can't do for myself while keeping all of my rights. The self-publishing industry is still in its infancy, and I'm stoked to be a part of a booming industry before it even reaches its fullest potential!

Nemesis is still a WIP and will be available soon as an ebook at all the major outlets (Amazon, B & N, etc.). Depending on demand, I might print-on-demand a few hard copies. 

Nemesis Synopsis


Lilith, a she-demon hell-bent on a new world of feminine rulership, seeks to devour not only US Army Soldier Dustin Chase and his infant son, but also all sexually weak human males. The selfless Dustin can protect himself and his son from Lilith, but she is not working alone.

I want to thank Kaamil for his time and participation in the Pay It Forward. Keep your eyes and ears open for Kaamil Garyson’s dark paranormal, Nemesis.
