y novel is fantasy, set in a Realm that has a King and Queen and Lords and a Council and such. I want to make sure I am using the proper capitalization it titles and phrases when referring to them. Since writing wasn’t my major in college (biology/genetics) I know I make lots of mistakes, but I figured I could start learning a few things on my own so my poor (unpaid) editor doesn’t have as much work to do (don’t you love family!)
Going through forums, I found some tips in a few blogs and websites. Instead of repeating it (and since they really deserve the credit) I’ll list a few sites/blogs below.
“Fiction Q&A: Styling Noble & Royal Title” by Kristen Stieffel
“Ten Rules of Capitalization for Fiction Writers” by Terry W. Ervin II
“A Capital Idea! Knowing When to Capitalize” by Janice Hardy (@Janice_Hardy)
National Geographic Style Manual
I hope some of these help you, as they have me, and now I have them handy for myself.
