Re: CreateSpace, LuLu, SmashWords...Which One?

If you ever want to see your book in a brick and mortar then you need to accept returns and CreateSpace doesn't.

Re: Self-publishing marketing w/out blogging?

I personally don't think blogging is a requirement and it is possible to promote without having your own blog. I don't blog myself because I already have multiple ones for my "real life" persona and didn't want to do another. Regardless of whether you blog or not, you will want a website of some kin...

In this weekend's episode, I talk about the the who idea that writers "should never pay anything" and how that isn't necessarily true when doing indie publishing. http://www.spreaker.com/user/anmanatsu/s2-e19-never-pay-well-except to listen at Spreaker or http://anmanatsu.com/lw.cfm to get to via iT...

Re: What are the rules for using Trademarked names?

In general, as long as it is a positive reference, it's fine. It's considered incidental use. You couldn't use their logos or the like, but just mentioning them is fine.

Here is a pretty good article on it: http://www.rightsofwriters.com/2010/12/ ... in-my.html

Re: Ugh spam

Yay, was starting to wonder if the forums had been abandoned. :-(

Re: What would I need?

Ah, that does clarify. :-) I didn't mean to sound accusatory; sadly there are many who would have no problem violating the law. For the unauthorized items you are seeing in Mexico, I have heard in various forums and seem some articles that suggest that copyright infringement is a rampant issue there...
