Five great ways to respond when someone writes unfairly about you as an author

  1. Write some serious literature, like Tom Wolfe did
  2. Endure a little unfairness, then show the world your talent through your next publication
  3. Stand up for your writing – but don’t use rage, insults or sarcasm
  4. Remember that you invited the opinion of the critic – but you don’t have to allow incorrect facts to be published (so request that inaccuracies are corrected)
  5. If inaccurate and defamatory criticism is presented as fact – and is not genuinely held opinion – and it costs you money, you can sue them
