A Muslim's Guide to Publishing & Marketing

There are many books to help new authors, but I have only seen one written exclusively for Muslims. Not only does Linda D. Delgado (a retired police officer who embraced Islam and formed the Islamic Writers Alliance and Muslim Writers Publishing) explain the differences between traditional, self and subsidy publishing, she also gives us insight into the world of Muslim publishing and compares the methods used in the Muslim and non-Muslim book publishing industries.
Do you have a marketing plan? Do you understand the ins and outs of printing, fulfillment and distribution?

Read this book before sending your manuscript out to publishers. Learn more about the book and view sample pages here:
