Okay, here's the thing. I've never been to London, or England for that matter, but my story has the necessity of taking place there for two reasons: First, as it deals with old legends and mythology, I have to cross the United States from the equation and second, other European places will be explored throughout the plot. Now, to jump over this obstacle I'm thinking of creating a fictional city somewhere in East Sussex or Kent, which are located in the southeastern coast, tentatively named Dunport. This is YA fiction, in the vein of Harry Potter and Riordan's work (Percy Jackson, Krane Chronicles, etc.). I've never seen anyone do this before, preferring places like New York or Chicago for this kinda thing. Is it a no-no or could it be effectively done? Waiting for your answers. Pd: I'm practically set to start writing the novel, so this type of quips are thrice annoying. Seriously, even the smallest of details are giving me a headache. Thanks in advance!
