Lately, I’ve seen some self-published books in which the author got a little carried away with how wonderful these big letters looked. Instead of just using a drop cap at the beginning of the chapters, I’ve seen books where every text break in the book—and I mean a lot of them—had a big, ornate, or very bold drop cap. There must have.   Why do old books use one letter and a long dash for some names? I'm reading Jane Eyre and have seen this twice already, and I believe I have seen it in Sherlock Holmes stories as well. Instead of a proper name, there's a letter and a long dash, like "L".

  A proposal begins the process of showing that you know how to write a book. Address the letter to a specific person. If sending something to The Steve Laube Agency, simply address the appropriate agent. Would it be possible to send the covered letter instead via email with the attachments for the book proposal and sample chapters? Reply.   That said, if you then throw that letter away, instead of put it back in your mailbox with a note like “return to sender” or “wrong address”, well, now you did just commit a crime via intentionally obstructing the delivery of U.S. mail. Another caveat to all of this is if someone gives you permission to open their mail, even though you.
