There are a couple of things you can do for this. Start your own personal blog. There are lots of free services like Blogger (you'll need a Google account to use this), Wordpress.com (careful, NOT .org), Tumblr, etc. Publish with a free fiction-posting service, like Wattpad. Work with an artist to create a web comic in which you are the writer, and the ...
I love Medium. It's a great site to read short and long essays.
After looking at the copyright pages of several books, there is no standard for placement of library of congress numbers that is broadly applied. In several cases books by the same publisher did not use the same layout. Therefore with confidence I can not only say 'I don't know,' but I can also say 'No one other than god and the publisher can know.'

While a title cannot be copyrighted, an author might choose a title for her work that infringes on a registered trademark. Different rules apply to trademarks, but that doesn't make their use as a title legal.
Are you capable of writing with proper grammar and punctuation and you think this "unorthodox fashion" is more appealing for some reason? Or do you not know how to use proper grammar and punctuation? If you don't know how, I'd say, "learn". There are times when it is effective to break the rules. But if you don't know what the rules are or what the purpose ...
Short answer: Write in the character's voice and develop your own writing style. Long answer: If poor grammar and technique are intrinsic to the character/narrator, editors will tolerate it to a point (to what point exactly, though, is a risk you take as a writer). If poor grammar and technique are intrinsic to the writer's abilities, they will most likely ...
Give me a break - this isn't a "knowledge" issue - if you can write about "the convoluted intricacies of writing techniques," you can at least put a question mark at the end of your sentence. If you chose to use a non-standard style, you'd better be damn sure you use it WELL. In this case, I don't see how your style added anything to your post, so, no, I ...
I had trouble just following this post. Generally, if the book is good and able to hold it's own, if can succeed even without an orthadox style of writing. Otherwise, it won't do well.
Some publishers have their own layout applications. Amazon has their own applications for design and layout for books of a graphical nature or that have specialized layout (they support many platforms as well). They also work with a print business that can make moving your work to a print version a little bit easier and allow you to reuse your existing ...
I say submit your poems. Give editors a chance to buy them. If the chances are slim, so what? As far as I can tell, the only harm in submitting is the time it takes to research the markets, and whatever anguish you might feel when an editor chooses not to buy. If those things aren't bothering you, go ahead and submit. The big advantage of submitting is ...
I kicked a soccer ball around in the park yesterday and now I'm trying to decide if I should go pro or get a college scholarship. Any ideas? Or, slightly more directly... if you've only written two poems until now, probably your two poems aren't much good. I guess it's not impossible that they are, but for most people, writing is a skill that needs to be ...
If it is something as simple as a novel you can actually use a word processing program. (I know of people who produce relatively complex magazines using Word. My wife has written several books using Word.) Open Office and Libra Office are both free and will produce pdfs if you want someone else to print it. You need to check the layout on the pdf that is ...
You need a desktop layout program, such as Adobe InDesign or Quark XPress. Don't use Word; it's a word processing program and not meant for layout. You could possibly use LaTex, but I don't know much about it.
