comment What are the 3 all-time best-sellers in each genre?
@dmm Yes, tagging here is limited to five, as is the case across all SE sites. Can you edit the question to include a list of the genres you're interested in, rather than try to squeeze it all into the tags? I agree that multiple separate questions would make no sense.

comment Publishing an illustrated book- Self-Publishing or Corporate Publishing?
Asking how to find an illustrator (or a writer, editor, etc) is off-topic for this site, but the rest of the question is fine. Have edited the question.

comment How can I catch more errors when I proofread?
Welcome to Writers! There's some good advice here, but have edited your answer to remove promotional content. (If you want to add a URL to your profile, that'd be fine.) While self promotional content can be okay here, I suggest avoiding it for your very first posts. Again, welcome, and thanks for contributing to the community.

comment How do I do literary research on an unresearched topic?
Questions about pure literary topics are closed here all the time; I quoted a bit of your original question, to make it clear that this is related to a writing project.

comment Correcting common personal errors/typos
@JohnSmithers - Agreed, this is a duplicate. Will merge them so we can keep dmm's answer.

comment Is it bad to have sentences that are too long?
Requests to critique or rephrase short pieces of text are off-topic here. Can you provide context for this? If not, I'm afraid we'll have to close. (For example, what text surrounds this? Where is it being used?)

comment Should I italicise when the protagonist quote other character's words?
Either is good, it's a style thing. What's important is that it's clear in context and consistent with the rest of the text. (Consistency = clarity in this case.)

comment How to style a film or book title?
So there's a book title mentioned within a character's internal thoughts? (I can add that to my answer.)

comment Should I italicise when the protagonist quote other character's words?
As an editor, if I saw unitalicized text that was dialog with a tag, I'd put it in quotes.

@CharlesStewart - Would you be willing to turn this into a full answer with a citation?

comment What is the proper format/style for using and properly citing code in an APA paper?
Which part of it? There's nothing here about source code. The computer software part?

comment What is the proper format/style for using and properly citing code in an APA paper?
Do you mean the sections "Electronic Sources" and "Sources Without Page Numbers"? If so, let's quote that here in the answer.

comment Where to check the income of the most famous US fiction writers?
@MonicaCellio IMO, this is on-topic, more or less. But will ping you in chat.

This might be easier to answer if you told us what sort of feel you want to convey.

comment Question re asterisks in MS Word using Styles
This question should be on-topic on SuperUser, but they already have many questions on the MS Word autocorrect feature. This would likely be closed there as a duplicate.

comment Question re asterisks in MS Word using Styles
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about how to use an unspecialized word processor or other software tool. See: Should this site help with specific writing software questions?

comment As an new author, how important is to have a personal website?
An author blog can be a very good thing... if you plan to update it regularly with interesting content. A blog that's updated rarely if ever is probably worse than no blog at all.

Why do you feel dialogue would be a problem?

See BESW's comment below; perhaps this can be edited and reopened?
