Dear friends, I have signed a book contract with a publishing company to write a book about interventions. I need help because this book is a compilation of stories about addicts and how they get into recovery. I am looking for stories from addicts but also from the family/friend or interventionist who were instrumental in their journey. I want stories of any addiction: alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, food, etc.

The publishers want the book to be one of hope and solutions for famiy/friends who have an addicted loved one so that they may have some understanding and guidance. If you are a recovering addict or a person who has been instrumental to a recovery addict, I would love to hear from you. All people are anonymous. If you know someone who could be of help to me in this area, please give them this information.

If you think your "story" is not exciting enough or book worthy, you are probably wrong. I'm looking for real stories that people can relate to. I have a deadline on this manuscript and so I am anxious to have most of my material by August, 2010. If you are interested in more information or know someone who might be, please answer to this forum or email me from the 12 Step Recovery page on BellaOnline. You don't have to be a writer. That's my job. All I'm asking is that you share your stories with me. It is not only a help to me but a great service to those out there who might need to hear what you have to say. Thank you all.

Blessings,
Kathy

Hi Kathy, I have just reviewed a true story written by a mother about her son's addiction. It is her journey of self development and personal growth from hopelessness and despair, to peace and serenity. Perhaps this may be of interest:

Thanks Joy. I get quite a few books to review although I had not read the one you mentioned. Unfortunately, other books will not help me in writing my own. I have to solicit true stories on my own. And, in all honesty, other recovery writers and professionals have not exactly been right up front with any help I've asked for. Odd to me that folks who should be open to spreaking the message are uncomfortable doing so w/o payment. Oh well, God will provide! But thanks and if you do know someone in recovery, send them my way!

Kathy

Kay,

I would be thrilled to have your story. I am also in Arizona although I know that doesn't mean we are in the same area. I cannot email you because I don't get emails thru this forum. Would you email me please at gratefulrecovery@gmail.com. I would appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you.

Blessings,
Kathy

I think that what God means when He says, all things work together for good to those who love God to those who are the called according to His purpose. He makes good of all the evil in this world. He is Good!

Hi there. I have almost 1 1/2 yrs sober and have thought about writing a book on my story too! But, I am not a writer by any means.
I won't tell my story here but if you still require stories and think you can find a way of helping me share mine, then feel free to email me. I am a Canadian though!! Lol.
So much for anonymity!
