@NeilFein, if you ask me if I would transfer my comment to a meaningful answer, then that answer is: yes.

comment Story resolution issue - A symbolic gift for two new friends
The only way to make the reader understand this symbol is by introducing it during the story. It doesn't matter what it is, but it must have meaning to the protagonists, then the readers will get it. It can even be a rusty nail. If Ashley stepped into it and Anna removed it and attended him, that could be a symbol of their friendship.

comment Experience Dealing with Chinese book printers?
Have you considered CreateSpace? I've read that Lightning Source is not recommended for newbies, because of a lot of hidden costs along the way. Dean Wesley Smith made a few posts about that (but they could be outdated in the meantime).

comment Attributing Quote to Fictional Characters (Who are based on real people)
Tell me if I get this wrong, but you are not really attributing to a person here. You are citing a source. Your source then have to care about the correct attribution. I'm aware that a book source does not look as cool on a poster than a person's name, but well, it would be the correct way imho.

comment Do publishers use LaTeX to produce books for the blind?
From the software side a spot is a spot. And if I get Braille correctly, then there is only one depth for a spot (not several embossing depths which carry different meaning). So Latex and the Braille package don't care at all. It only matters if you send the output to a printer or a embossing machine. But I have no idea how a embossing machine looks like or works. Google?

I would have assumed, that difference between printing and embossing is made by the hardware you use for the job. If the dot of the Braille syntax is reproduced as a toner/ink spot or an embossed point depends on the machine/printer. Or I get this question wrong.
