My novel: Finding Jamilah & The Story of Yusuf

my bookHere it is, ladies and gentlemen! In the flesh! I’m so thrilled to see my book in my Sydney family home. So exciting!

It’s been one incredible journey, and I’d like to thank everyone who’s supported me through it: my amazing family, my awesome friends, near and far, and my publisher, MyLegacy Publications, for bringing my story into print. Alhamdulilah, it’s wonderful to see my dream of being a published author come true. Truly, Allah is Most Generous.

The number one question I’ve been hearing is: “How do I buy your book?” Good question. For now, I’m planning to sell copies of my book at my book launch in Sydney. I’m currently in KL, Malaysia, and plan to be in Sydney between March 23-April 6.

Stay tuned for updates on my Sydney book launch, and I hope to see you there!

Finding Jamilah is getting published!

I have wonderful news! Finding Jamilah is going to get published! Yesterday, I met with Belal Taha from MyLegacy Publications to hash out the details. Stay tuned for a print edition with a brand new cover.

Belal told me that he bought my eBook, really enjoyed it, then he contacted me about putting it in print. As a self-published author, this is a dream come true. The world of self-publishing is a tough one – finishing my story and putting it on Amazon was the easy part, but marketing it, getting it into print and into bookstores was the hard part. I’m really glad that now I have a publishing house to back me up, and to help me get my story into homes around Australia, and elsewhere.

For all aspiring authors out there: Believe in yourself, believe in your story, and keep writing! Thank you MyLegacy Publications and to my family and friends who believe in my story. May this be the beginning of many, many more.
