comment Using dashes in writing dialogue
This is a question that has an answer if you are looking for an approach based on prescriptive grammar. However, as a stylistic issue it's not so clear!

comment Text referencing protected, trademarked™ and copyrighted© names, what is the correct procedure?
I'm not sure why my answer wasn't good enough, given that it answered both of your questions, but the above information on (c) is correct. (c) Facebook is an entirely different issue than TM or R, the first... the latter two refer to the term Facebook (and the logotype), the former refers to a product that is owned by Facebook. Facebook (tm) is about the logo and logotype; @ Facebook would be about, for example, their documentation, etc.

comment How many short stories make a collection
I think you're going to have to consider the number of stories as a function of the publisher you find. There's no real average to be had. Publishing your stories individually will hopefully open the doors to publishers willing to print a collection. I'd package up your collection with the stories you feel necessary and then, when you work with the publisher, discuss including more. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but it is such an individualized process.
