Reactions to Nixon’s Gamble and How Writers Give Credibility to Sources - video

Author Ray Locker experienced two different types of resistance in response to his controversial nonfiction book, Nixon's Gamble. He received direct resistance from individuals that were featured in the book who claimed to have their own version of events. He also received indirect resistance from certain media outlets who chose not to review his book. He highly recommends proper citing of sources when writing nonfiction, especially when the topic has been heavily researched by the writer or contains sensitive material. This can help establish credibility with all parties including agents, publishers, media and audiences.
