September Author Interview Answer #6: What was the best and worst criticism that you have received for your work?

Hello everyone, I hope you have enjoyed reading the fifth post in this interview series. This is the continuation of the interview with author Debby G. Kaye and Linda Gray Sexton. Please check their bios out via the links you can see below.

Let’s check out the answers for question #6 from them.

“What was the best and worst criticism that you have received for your work? ”

Author #1 D. G. Kaye

The best criticism came from my brother, when he told me that I held back a bit from going into more detail about my mother. I couldn’t bring myself to do so while she was still living, but I understood what he was conveying. I thankfully haven’t received any real criticism other than two bad reviews on Amazon. It is inspiring to know that I’ve connected with readers with the subjects I write about.

Author #2 Linda Sexton
In one review The New York Times Book Review called my writing “purple prose.”  In a review in the daily New York Times, Michiko Kakutani called it “powerful and affecting.”  Just two examples off the top of my head.  No one has ever quibbled with what I am trying to say—rather they either praise or denigrate the way I am trying to say it.
It takes courage to write the truth! You both have what it takes to write memoirs! Congratulations for that!
I’ll be posting the answers to the seventh question next: “How do deal with people who disagree with your thoughts and views and how do you defend your point of views? ”
