The Formula for Setting that Agents, Editors, and Readers Love

What is it about a setting that resonates with agents, editors and readers? How do you choose the perfect location for your story? In this session, we’ll discuss how a well-chosen setting can be a marketing advantage and actually help sell books. We’ll talk about whether you can use a real place and the legal ramifications of doing so. And we’ll investigate why it’s important to think of the setting as a character and how it can be used as an effective plot device.
