In Response To: Family Authors/Should There Be Limitations On What We Write? ()
If this family authors book was seen at a book store and you read it, unless you knew a lot about the area or the author , what she wrote would not be hurtful to anyone. Before this book was published her editor knew the legal guidelines to follow. That's the reason there were no 1st or last names other than her siblings. This is a true story of her life. All those people in the book, still living have never picked up any book and read it from page 1 until the end. Of course they are going to go straight to the pages that have their names without reading anything completely before and after. I have demons in my past and present just as she did. I have not yet put it to paper because it could hurt my mother. Anyone one else I could care less. So when and if I do, it will be done at a much later date. Sometimes you have to be selfish and decide 'it's my time now to go forward'. I feel everyone should do what they individually feel is correct. We all need to feel at peace.
