When writing a book review, when titling it, is it best to put the title first or author? Why?
It depends on your opinion, most of us on hubpages aren't published authors, so I am no more right than the next guy, but I would say the title, when you want to see if the lord of the rings books are good, you will look for a lord of the rings review, not a J.R.R Tolkien review, so it makes sense to put the title first, unless your reviewing a biography or autobiography, It really depends on the content in that case.
I would put the book title first if I decided to use both the book title and author's name in the hub title. I've yet to write an entire hub as a book review, but if I did I'd probably choose to title it "Book Title: a review" or something similar so that anyone seeing the title knows that it is, in fact, going to present my opinions about the book before they read any further. The author information can be added as a section within the main text.

Is there a way to italicize a book title in a heading or subheading box on my Hub? I only see the italics button available in the text box.

It would be nice to see some consistency in editing the book reviews we publish on HubPages. When I get a memo that says, "Heads Up. Your article has been snipped," I expect to see a correction for a typo I've made. Instead, sometimes the editor has decided to rearrange the wording of the...

I'm busy working out a plan for my next novel which I aim to start during NaNoWriMo which is next month. I'm trying to think of a cunning attention-grabbing title. So what I want to know, is what kind of a book title will make you reach onto a bookshelf, grab the book to read the...
