Hello all. I've been here for a few months, mostly just keeping a low profile and reading posts. I am attempting to write a book that I hope to get going as a series eventually. It's fiction. Half or more of the book is going to take place on Earth, in a small town. The rest of the plot takes place in small increments in another world. I'm having a small problem figuring out where I want to put my setting. It will be a small town in either Kentucky or Ohio (probably Ohio.) My question is, should I use a fictional-made up place for a setting or should I use a real small town. I know it's probably a silly detail that most readers will more than likely overlook, assuming it even gets to see publication. I never quite notice in books that I read if the setting is an actual town or not, but in my mind they usually pass for real even if they aren't. Thanks.
