Mr. or Mister, Missus, Mrs.
I guess it's about abbreviations. Jonas Watcher: The Case of the Bourbon Street Hustler in written circa 1930. So Mizz is out or is it Miz.? When identifying characters, Mister Smith, or Mr.Smith, which is preferable? Both are correct, so is there a protocol? Is it personal? The book is being setup for proof in Create Space, but before I actually order printed paperbacks, to distribute to my readers and editors, I thought I would throw this out?
I would think that you would probably want to find an etiquette book from the 1930s, to find the correct way of addressing people of various stations of life. And, since your story looks like it's set in New Orleans, you would also want to research how people were addressed there, since the language and customs are so unique.
here we use Mr for man, Mrs for married woman, Ms for single lady, M/s for company
I thought Miss was a single lady - and Ms. was for 'Mizz' the ones who were single or seperated but did not want it to be known which.
I don't think I should use Ms or mizz, the genre is 1930, so Miss works for me. So Mr without the period would be acceptable?

I believe that most women want and enjoy true intimacy, and most would want that intimacy on a long-term basis with Mr. Right. But when there is no Mr. Right, how many women are choosing Mr. Right-Now?
