How to Find a Setting for Your Book

Susan Uncategorized


When I’m picking the setting for my book, I choose places I’d like to visit or something that holds a particular story element—like Alaska and being lost in the mountains, or Kellogg (PJ Sugar’s town), a cute hamlet outside of Minneapolis on the lake. I like to invest myself into setting, so I usually travel there so I can get a great feel for the place. Then it’s easier to make it come alive.

If you could set a book anywhere, where would you choose?
