Today I’m asking for some advice.
As I’ve mentioned before, I have written a book called Ethereal Lives. I currently have a new beta reader looking over it and she raised an interesting point that I must admit, has stumped me.
In the beginning of the book the aliens refer to my heroine as it instead of her. As you can probably guess from the title, I want to know if the “it” should be capitalised.
My beta reader believes “it” should be as they are using the word as a name for the heroine, and she has a good point. However, they are saying “it” because they think of her as an object, not a person, so I’m not so sure.
I’ve obviously tried researching this but have been unsuccessful in finding an answer, so I thought I’d ask you lovely people.
Should “it” be capitalised?
Please leave a comment if you know the answer.
