I wrote to him last night to see if he would write back and sure enough, he has! (It doesn’t contain the best of news, but I was still thrilled and grateful for his response.)
He is the author of one book that changed my life…
As well as, two more…
Here is the message:

Nice to hear from you. Congrats on your sobriety and your forthcoming book! That’s huge man. Psyched for you!
I hate to say this but as of June 2018 I had to stop doing endorsements at least through Spring 2019 as my schedule is insane!
I’m terrible at setting boundaries and having to say no, but please know that in no way does this have anything to do with you or your book whatsoever.
For whatever this is worth, I just had to say no to a NY Times Bestselling author whose work I really like… but I literally just don’t have the time right now.
I deeply honor you and your project and wish you all good things moving forward.
Please accept my apologies for not having the time currently to help with this!
