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

  1. Write some serious literature, like Tom Wolfe did https://observer.com/2000/02/its-tom-wolfe-versus-the-three-stooges/
  2. Endure a little unfairness, then show the world your talent through your next publication https://blog.bookbaby.com/2016/02/how-writers-can-respond-to-book-critics/
  3. Stand up for your writing – but don’t use rage, insults or sarcasm https://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/21/books/review/should-writers-respond-to-their-critics.html?_r=0
  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) https://thewritelife.com/respond-negative-review/
  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 https://www.dezeen.com/2014/08/22/zaha-hadid-sues-critic-martin-filler-new-york-review-of-books-over-book-review/
