Monday Spotlight: Mary Abshire
After I read the Twilight series, I recalled hearing about people visiting the town Stephanie Myer put in her book. I don't know enough about her writing, but I wonder if she thought ahead when she was writing the series. Did she think, hey, people might check this place out?
As for me, I'm not curious to know about locations in books. I like to imagine them in my head. I never had the urge to jump up and visit a place in a book, nor searched for the place on-line. Just not me. But with a wealth of information at our fingertips, I knew someone could do check on a place, and probably would.
So, when I sat down to write, I took the above question into consideration. In my books, towns, restaurants, bars, hotels, and the Fort are all real. I altered details of a few locations, such as a bar or hotel, but the actual location is real. So if any one did Google or decide to visit, they would find the location.
So, I'm curious now. Do you ever search or visit places from a book?
