a TM must be associated with a particular class or goods or services, so any evidence of use in commerce has to relate to that class that you applied for. Also, the evidence should be submitted with the application. At this point you do not need to do anything unless you are asked for additional evidence of use in commerce.
and you are right that book titles cannot be trademarked
also, there is no general trademark for a word or phrase on various objects....there must be some class of goods/services
in other words, the trademark cannot exist as just a word or logo that can be applied to anything
They have not asked yet, but if they did, would a seminar itinerary on the topic do? And an additional itinerary on "More About Socialcide" suffice?
That may help, but they may want evidence showing national usage / across state lines. Your evidence may satisfy that but I woulnd't know
technically the commerce must be interstate commerce
so the evidence must also be such....but website evdience can often be used
