Lords and Ladies and Sirs, oh my!

Attention British authors (and authors from other countries, too): please to learn proper usage of your own aristocratic titles! The wife of a knight is never, ever Lady Firstname (“Robert Galbraith,” I’m looking at you*), ever!** Even in 2013! Georgette Heyer could learn them, Dorothy L. Sayers could learn them, a Yank (me) could learn them for pity’s sake, it’s not beneath you. There’s even a handy chart.

That being said, I’m available for consultation. I charge only a free copy of the ebook.

*Awesome book. Review to come. Rantage about the general situation also to come.
**Unless of course she is the daughter of an earl/marquess/duke, which did not appear to be the case here.
