Can I use short attributed quotes and suggest books in my Hubs?

    I'm new to Hub but have been a published writer for eons.  I love to put an appropriate quote in an article or suggest a book or two for further reading--of course these are books in which I have no financial interests.

    I will be most grateful for any help.  I want to start off right with HubPages and respect all its policies.

      Amazon capsules are good for suggesting books and I use that method, often combined with a book review. Quotes I use are usually far under 200 words and never over 250, but some authors would like you to contact them for permission even for short quotes. Never hurts to contact them - I've made many friends that way.

      Best success to you!

    Welcome to Hubpages.


    Some hubs with quotes.

    Book recommendations.  I would put the book recommendations in an amazon capsule, so you can earn some $$$!

    I would have to say yes to both questions.

    Many thanks to you all for the comments and links!  I'm trying to learn a lot quickly; the Learning Center is one of the best I've come across, but I'm sure I miss some things.  I'm busily working on my first Hub and can't wait to put it out there.  Right now I feel a bit like the new student at school, but this seems such a friendly place, I suspect I'll soon be a active part of the community.

      Word Wise - HubPages is just like any other writing outlet.  You can quote anything within legal bounds.  If you cite correctly, do not directly use large parts of someone else's material, and credit authors, you should be ok.
