Want Free Marketing, Book Sales, And A Book Review? Submit Your Book to The Book Club!
If you have a mental illness, brain illness, or identify as neurodivergent, and you’d like to submit your book to the Writers With Mental Illness Online Book Club and subscription service, please don’t hesitate to fill out the contact form below. It can be an effective marketing tactic for your book, and all readers are encouraged to leave reviews. This could be a great way to get engaged readers interested in your book and build a fanbase. If your book is chosen, you have the opportunity to participate in the Facebook group discussion and connect with readers by sharing your writing process, responding to comments, and the like.
Frequently Asked Questions:
- Is it really free?
Yes! It doesn’t come without some effort and communication on your part, though. While the book club is free, I like to offer an exclusive email list for book service subscribers with fun facts and other insider information about your writing process, your story, and the like. I encourage you to participate in the Facebook group, as well, but it is not required at all. If you still feel inclined to help out in some way, I would love if you’d consider signing up for the $1 tier of Patreon, which helps me keep the book service afloat! A lot of the books I send out cost more to buy and ship than I charge on Patreon. The $1 tier helps subsidize this cost.
- Are you interested in any particular genres or authors?
Memoirs about bipolar disorder have been very common so far. It’s not that I won’t necessarily choose a book like this (I have a mood disorder and memoir is my favorite genre, so I love these), but to make room for other genres and conditions, your book could be pushed back to a month later in the year. I especially am interested in books of poetry and books of essays, as well as authors of color and/or members of the LGBT+ community.
- How do I submit my book?

Recommend A Book:
If you have a book recommendation to add to our online book club, please reach out! The goal is to send out mental illness books that readers will love. Help us do that by recommending books that touched your heart or changed your perspective. There are many books that don’t get mental illness right. Even authors with mental illness sometimes accidentally glamorize mental illness or stigmatize it. Those books that do get it right can be life-changing for struggling readers with mental illness. The goal is to send out books like these.
You can sign up for the book subscription service now on Patreon. At any time, patrons have the ability to cancel their subscription.
