The Book Shelf is Missing Your Book!

By: Marilyn L. Davis

We want to promote your book and we don’t expect you to pay us. How’s that for straightforward information?

We know what it’s like to sit and write and wonder if anyone will read our creative efforts. We know what it’s like to be a fern at the bottom of the redwood forest. But through hard work, good writing, and social media shares, we attracted readers, followers, and the attention of other sites. In fact, we made The Write Life’s list of top 100 writing sites in 2016,  and we’re one of their eleven sited writing communities for 2017.  We also made Positive Writer’s  top 50 in 2017.

Those awards certainly mean something to us and about us. But just as importantly, they mean that we have credibility in the writing world, which can translate to exposure for you. 

Because we wanted to create a collaborative site, we created the Book Shelf, Two Drops of Ink’s way of showcasing authors; giving them another avenue for potential revenue.

Our part is done. Now it’s up to you.

If you are an author, traditionally or self-published, do you need additional exposure for your book? Probably, and the Book Shelf can offer you that. The requirements are simple.

  1. Read the submission guidelines for The Book Shelf.
  2. Submit.
  3. If your book or reviews of your book are accepted, you get exposure, and we get to reinforce our tag-line, Two Drops of Ink: The Literary Home for Collaborative Writing.

In a time of seemingly little cooperation between people, this joint effort may just prove that teamwork, mutually beneficial practices, and partnerships can and do work.

Hope to be reading about your book soon.


Two Drops of Ink: The Literary Home for Collaborative Writing


Marilyn L. Davis

Marilyn is a recovering addict with 28 years in abstinence-based recovery. She opened and ran an award winning women's recovery home from 1990-2011. Closing the house gave her time to write for a larger audience at From Addict 2 Advocate, where she is the Editor-in-Chief. She is also the Assistant Editor at Two Drops of Ink, encouraging other writers to share their creativity and talents. She believes in the power of words and knows that how something is said is just as important as what is said. She is a charter member of the Cult of the Paper, which just means that she's been reading for a long time. Also, she is not embarrassed to profess her love of words, wit, and wonder. Her writing at Two Drops of Ink tends to be encouraging, full of alliterations, humor and as one fan put it, "Generous advice and common sense." She is also the author of Therapeutic Integrated Educational Recovery System (TIERS). She is the recipient of the Liberty Bell Award, given to non-attorneys and judges for their work within the Criminal Justice Systems and in 2008, Brenau University created the Marilyn Davis Community Service Learning Award, given to advocates in wellness, mental health and recovery.


  1. Hi, Lynette. We are hoping that authors respond with as much enthusiasm as you! Seriously, thanks for commenting and I’m hoping to get some quality memoirs reviewed – we both like that genre so much. Would you have any suggestions? I know you have a wealth of knowledge about them.
