Alrighty, so, I’ve reached that stage where I’m trying to edit and flesh out my manuscript, etc etc. BUT, this one question has been haunting me for a really long time now.
When designing the title page for a manuscript, I’ve seen a bunch of authors who are getting published and/or who have picked up an agent, post the title page on their social media to their novels manuscript. I normally study the differences to get an idea, and what I’ve grasped is, these authors design their title page in the same structure of course, but it is always with the fonts and designs they want on there. Then, when I look up ways to design a title page for a manuscript, I get all of these “this is a proper manuscript” pages with basic fonts, all in the same exact design, thrown at me, as if saying this is how it should be. So, I’m at a loss.
When querying, are there specific fonts you’re supposed to use on your title page? Are there specific structures to be done with the entire manuscript, font and design wise? And if there are supposed to be “proper” ways, how come most authors get away with it when they send off their manuscript? I’m just genuinely confused at this point lol.
