On March 20, 2006 Press Release Newswire reported, "A retired police sergeant and author of several novels, [Linda "Widad"] Delgado became a Muslim several years ago... Taking note of the enormous barriers in the traditional American book publishing world, and the stigmas attached to the subsidy alternatives, Delgado set up her company [Muslim Writers Publishing] as a traditional Muslim publishing business. Delgado uses a team of some of the publishing industry's most respected experts to produce [each] book and jumpstart its marketing. Delgado has established overseas distribution, printing and sales through a network of contacts throughout the Muslim world, and has researched the publishing industry in depth... Books are selected on the basis of literary merit and the author's commitment to help market the book. So far, Delgado has published seven titles with three additional tiles scheduled for publication by summer of 2006."
