If you’re an author, traditionally or self-published, do you need more exposure for your book?

Probably, and a Recommended Recovery Book post can offer that to you.

It’s my way of getting valuable information out to people who are still struggling with their addictions. It also allows you another platform to promote your book.

Submissions are simple:


  1. Send me a link to your book at
  2. Send me any reviews.
  3. I would also like a detailed summary of your book. I’ll decide about its posting to the site from this summary, along with the reviews.


  1. You must be one of these, or all three: owner/author/publisher of the book.
  2. The book will go through a vetting/review process, and you will be notified as to whether it will be posted on the site.
  3. Please include a short summary of your book for readers. It must be 150 words or less. Make it count. This is your time to shine and catch the reader’s attention.
  4. Include a high-res book cover (300 dpi) and a link to the book, your website, blog, or any pertinent marketing information. This is not a part of your 150-word summary; however, please keep this section as concise as possible.
  5. Please provide a recent headshot (JPEG); professional, not a family vacation photo, and 200-word bio.
  6. From Addict 2 Advocate is not responsible for any disparaging comments, poor reviews, or trollish behavior toward your book from exposure to the public on our site. However, I do monitor comments, and I will delete derogatory remarks.
  7. The guidelines for ‘Recommended Recovery Books’ may change at any time.
  8. From Addict 2 Advocate reserves the right to remove books from the site at any time for various reasons.
  9. Showcased books will rotate out every few months.
