A Muslim’s Guide to Publishing and Marketing

I have mentioned A Muslim’s Guide to Publishing and Marketing on this blog before. The author, Linda D. Delgado (known to many as Sis. Widad), is an expert on the Muslim book industry as well as kind and helpful. She has personally answered many of my own questions on publishing and been a great source of support and guidance for members of the Islamic Writers Alliance, which she founded in 2004.

Sis. Widad wrote this book to help Muslim writers sort out the maze of information out there on getting a book published. In detail, she outlines the options available to writers and further explains the inner-workings of the Muslim publishing industry, which operates by different rules than you will find in the world of secular publishing.

Since I am currently reading Widad’s book myself, I will, over the next several months, be sharing some gems of wisdom from its pages. I hope you’ll join me by purchasing your own copy of the book (click on the Amazon link above) and contributing to the discussions after each post in the blog.
