Review

2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist, self-help category
2013 USA Best Books Awards Finalist, Health: Addiction/Recovery category

From the Author

Indie Author Land interviewed the author:
"Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud: Relapse and the Symptoms of Sobriety rolls out the latest scientific research about relapse and the disease of alcoholism without reading like a text
 book. It weaves a stunning personal story of relapse together with facts about why nine of ten sober alcoholics go back to drinking at least once. The book introduces the Symptoms of Sobriety which are indicators that relapse is imminent, four key stressors that lead to relapse, and success factors in keeping a relapse at bay. It is geared toward the alcoholic and the family and friends around him who may be wondering why anyone would return to the misery.
 
Indie Author Land: How big a problem is alcohol abuse?
Stevens: Alcohol use disorders cost the U.S. $220 billion annually. Other countries have problems as significant and financially draining as ours. Alcohol is the third-leading cause of death in the U.S. and worldwide. The book is relevant to everyone because we're ALL paying the price -- through courts, healthcare, lost productivity.  Getting people sober is important: Keeping them sober is what this book is about.
 
Indie Author Land: Who needs to read this book?
Stevens: Eight percent of the population is alcoholic -- some practicing, some in recovery. Beyond those men and women are, on average, 8-10 people directly impacted by the alcoholic's drinking and/or relapse. The book is targeted toward those around the alcoholic, to give them answers, as well as the alcoholic who wonders what is behind relapse.
 
Indie Author Land: Have you written any other books on this subject?
Stevens: What the Early Worm Gets was released in 2010 and takes a critical look at the differences between alcohol abuse and the disease of alcoholism and the difference between treatment and mistreatment.
 
Indie Author Land: What qualifies you to write on this subject?
Stevens: A lot of popular addiction and recovery authors and TV celebs have great credentials, but few have had to eat their own cooking. I have. For almost two years, I drank alcoholicly, secretly downing two liters of whiskey a day, every day. So when I talk about recovery, I  can relate precisely to the reader's condition and the range of emotions. Charts don't just have peaks and valleys to me as they do to a clinician: I've lived on those peaks and in those valleys.  And I've done extensive background research, not intending to replace what is out there, only to add to it.
 
Indie Author Land: Is there any book out there like this one that we might have read?
Stevens: A Million Little Pieces is similar to intensity to parts of Every Silver Lining
... except this book is non-fiction.
 
Indie Author Land: Ha ha. That book did cause a bit of a furor, if not always for the right reasons. What has the reaction been to your book?
 Stevens:  Response to the book has been growing.  I'm reaching two audiences:  Those who have or know someone with the disease; and professionals/paraprofessionals in the treatment business.  The reviews have been very encouraging.  Each of them have been five-stars, and I think it is hard to get someone inspired enough to comment on a sensitive topic, let alone give it top ratings.  Many of the comments reflect an appreciation for my writing style (which I appreciate) and also how the information was presented in such a personal and reader-friendly way.  I didn't want a "clinical" read as one reviewer called it.  It stands out among both audiences as thorough, helpful and anything but clinical or dry. 
 
Every Silver Lining Has a Cloud was just recognized as one of four Finalists in the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the self-help category against some really good works even I have read, so the book is getting a growing -  and appreciative - following.
 
Indie Author Land: What's next?

Stevens: I'm presently very engaged in my reporting and in promoting this book, but I have a start on a third self-help book addressing the stigma of alcoholism in society.
I've also written two children's titles I want to get out before Christmas. They don't  have anything to do with alcoholism.  They're fun, engaging books that can be read as bedtime stories or can be tackled by young readers."
