West Springfield, MA, May 11, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- From bestselling educator and author, Umm Juwayriyah (Maryam A. Sullivan), comes an exciting new way to stay up-to-date with English #MuslimFiction through #MuslimGirlsRead Fave Books Google App.
The app is a database that is rated E for everyone and will serve to connect Muslim authors and readers from all over the world with new and old Muslim fiction. The app can also save favorite books and link readers to purchase books as well.
"Selling fiction is hard. Selling Muslim fiction can sometimes be three times harder," author Umm Juwayriyah stated. "The app is your one-stop shop for all kinds of Muslim Fiction from mainstream and indie authors alike that you might have difficulty finding elsewhere. #MuslimGirlsRead Fave Books app is also a means to shine a light on #BlackMuslimReads as well because works of fiction by Black Muslims is not always valued in international Muslim or non-Muslim spaces."
Proceeds from the downloads are intended to expand the app with more technology and support the #MuslimGirlsRead Ramadhan Muslim Fiction fundraiser that provides #MuslimFiction to American inner-city Muslim schools.
