So, the 6th question is “Did you use references from other sources/facts/science when writing your book?”

1) Author #1 : Gilbert Van Kerckhove

My book TOXIC CAPITALISM has over 500 sources of information mentioned

2) Author #2:  Mike Kowis


3) Author #3: Kate Iroegbu

Not really, but when I refer to a quote or statement or view of someone I refer to the individual but I didn’t reference my book as it’s my life experiences really.

4) Author #4: Umm Sulaim

Of course, provided the nonfiction book was not a memoir, sources are necessary, as are facts. However, facts need not be scientifically proven. For instance, I can say I saw a spirit ~mmam. That could be a fact; it could also be an imagination. How do I scientifically prove my experience? Nevertheless, if I say my cousin and I saw an mmam, it can no longer be an imagination, but a fact. The ability to prove the experience to cynics becomes irrelevant.

5) Author #5: Ken Johnson

Yes, I think you owe it to the reader to do a well-researched non-fiction book. Of course, you shouldn’t just restate the works of others. I also think a good portion of a book should be the author’s understanding of a subject, personal experiences, professional experiences, observations, etc. This is what makes the book special and truly the author’s own work. Otherwise, you’d be better served just reading a Wikipedia article.

6) Author #6: Debby Gies

No, all of my stories are taken from my own real life experiences.

7) Author #7:  Pratima Nagaraj

No, I did not. It was a sharing of my story and experiences.

I used the internet to research a few facts in my book and to gain a better understanding of my backstory.

9) Author #9: Errol Baptiste

Yes I do use references from other sources and facts when writing my book.

10) Author #10: Edna Cane-Swannepoel

No, because it is about my life, I already went through it

11) Author #11: Kristalen Babb

The only reference I used was my memory from what all I witness and went through in life.

12) Author #12) Steve Wilson
