This does work with CC15, fortunately for my sanity. Thank you, @CarlosCanto, for your plugin!

One of my clients worked with XLibris also, but she felt they were unresponsive and difficult to work with.

Ask your printer. Your printer may have very specific pre-press requirements, or may prefer to do the pre-press themselves.

comment How to write about Autism and Intellectual Disability?
@evilsoup ah, I didn't know that, thanks. I think the general idea of "find an organization of autistics and talk to them" is still valid.

Why don't you try autismspeaks.org? Part of their mission is outreach and education. I think they'd be pleased to help you create a character who was neuroatypical but not cliché.

comment What type of writing is suited to an aspiring professional storyteller?
Hi, and welcome to Writers. Stack Exchange is not like other sites. We are not a discussion board. We require clear, practical, answerable questions which have the potential to help others. There is no way for the community to provide a canonical answer to your question as posted. If you can edit this into something like "These are my strengths; what kind of writing lends itself to them?" we may be able to help you. Otherwise we'll have to close this.

@DA01 that kind of restriction works for general illustration or photography, but not for a logo. I've never heard of restricting logo usage to one medium or one resolution only.

comment This is right. Or that is right?
I kind of agree with you: "this" has an immediacy (this thing right here in front of us) while "that" has some remove (that thing over there). I don't know if there's a single right answer.

Which is more important: the bulleted item/task, or the name of the person? If the point of the piece is the bulleted item, then that should go first. If your readers are looking for the names first because that's more important, then that needs to go first. (Presuming you're in a country where people read left to right.) It's only "equally legible" if you already know all the information. If you're trying to reference something, the item you are searching for should be more prominent.

Can you post a picture of a headline in more context? It's hard to judge from just the headline in isolation; we can't see the overall problem you're trying to solve.
