"No, it is a lengthy legal process to file for a Federal Trademark. However, one can establish usage without filing a claim by using TM to warn the public.  Yet with an ISBN, my books are copyrighted, thus the name and characters associated with…"

Shawn Lamb replied to the discussion 'Anyone Had Any Luck With Review Blogs/Sites?' in the group Small Publishers and Independent Authors
"To begin with, the necessity for reviews can become a vicious cycle, especially if one feels "desperate" as you say. When my 1st YA fantasy was published, I followed the advice of my publisher and hired a publicist, and she arranged a…"

"From my experience dealing with agents and publishers, once a book is "published" it's considered "dead" in terms of traditional - unless it goes best-seller like Locke and Hocking. It needs to capture the attention of…"

Glencoe, a novel by Shawn Lamb - book trailer

Through the turbulent 17th Century, Scotland survived civil war, five kings and embraced the Reformers. But what were such troubles to a young bard returning...

Shawn Lamb commented on the group 'Small Publishers and Independent Authors'
"Celine, I think the reason is simple to explain the difference. When a person buys a book, they are 'invested' in it from the start. This makes them more likely to read, comment and pass the book to others because it has 'value'.…"

Shawn, just saw your post on the "Show Me Your Novel" thread in the novelist group. Congrats! And can you please post about it in the "Our Published Novels" thread instead. The Show Me thread is for chatting about WIPs (without jpegs); the Our Published for works already out there. Thanks!

Meg

Shawn, I accidentally deleted your post about Back to the Books on Pub Ind News. Sorry. New ipad --> getting used to the touch screen and accidentally bumped the little delete x.

Shawn, with apologies, the novelist group intro at the top says please do not post big images on the wall, and asks that folks put discreetly sized covers in the "Our Published Novels" thread. I've taken your post down but would be happy to have you share the news without the large cover jpeg.

 

Best,

Meg

Thanks, Shawn.

I just had a visit to your website. Very enjoyable! I like the medieval feel to it--the typeface, the flag, the colors. Definitely my kind of stuff!

Shawn hi!

Your in line for the Wednesday October-12th guestblogger spot on my blog-let me know if you are still up for it ASAP please. We had a big problem last week with people not confirming and needing to get a fill in last minute. So Im telling people a couple weeks ahead now so that doesn't happen again.

Your question should you decide to accept is- What was the biggest adjustment your family had to make with you being a writer and why? 

You can of course title it what oyu like if you could somehow incorporate the question that would be great and also is it alright if I use your profile pic in here with your piece?

Please confirm with me one way or the other at sammispals@yahoo.com   this is also the address you will have to send the post once done as I will have to paste it into the stupid blog myself since blogger is uncooperative with people.

Thanks, Samantha
