Thank you for starting the Muslim Writers Club and coordinating the open call.
I have thus far emailed 60-odd agents and the vast majority of those who have responded agree that my book is a good idea but they don’t specialise in non-fiction + current affairs and therefore are unable to help.
In fact from the email exchanges thus far, I gather this open call seems to be more for fiction works by Muslim authors but where does an aspiring non-fiction author with a timely book go to, given the evident lack of interest thus far?
Of course, I realise its only been 2 months and most authors have to wait much longer to get published however could I please suggest you kindly consider putting out a call in April for literary agents that are interested exclusively in non-fiction works by Muslim authors?
