comment How does one include sign language in a dialogue?
Okay, I have to ask. If the doctor is relying on the signer's lip reading ability to be understood, I assume he doesn't understand sign language. So why does patient sign their response?

comment I have compiled a poetry book with poems of 4chan users. It has a lot of vulgarisms, is it possible to publish something like that?
Also, the Brothers Grimm lived in a time long before copyright and even if copyright had existed, they works they were compiling and publishing would have been long out of copyright with no discernible author. What you are looking to publish has an author and is very much in the era of copyright.

It is in fact someone else's work. Someone else wrote it. If you publish that work and someone claims that they wrote it (and can prove it, maybe through IP logs or having posted it non-anonymously elsewhere), they would have a very good case for infringement. That is why you would have trouble finding a publisher.

comment First Person Voice - Same as speaking?
@Ralph - I understand that the fictional character is not putting pen to paper (again, because they don't really exist). But whatever term you want to use (writing, telling, narrating, etc), it's the characters voice and POV that must come through. The writer knows much more about the world then they character does (arguably, they know an infinite amount more). But the character is still the one that they reader is supposed to connect with and therefore the author needs to understand why the character is writing (I mean telling) this story and whom they are writing it for.

comment Why does an author need an editor?
And that's why young novelists usually aren't ready to be published...

comment First Person Voice - Same as speaking?
+1 for "write what the character would write". Part of this is also about understanding why the character is writing this story and whom they are writing it for. That will help reveal how they choose to present themselves.

comment How could my friend publish his Steve Jobs biography?
The official Steve Jobs biography is about to come out. There is no way that he would let an unofficial one slide.

comment Writing a book on establishing Cash N Carry business?
You questions don't match (overlooking the fact that your title isn't actually a question anyway). Beyond that, your second question is wildly off topic for this site. Voting to close.
