Would you read a story set in a rural city in the Midwest?

Posted on Updated on

I recently wrote a book set in a small college town in the Midwest. While reading another authors’ comments about what type of book the public would read, he out and out stated that no one wants to read about The Ozarks or any small town. Not only did his comment bring me pause, upon further thought, I wondered if what he said was indeed true.

If a story is good, why would anyone care if it was set in New York, California or in the Midwest? Have we come so far from ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, that we now judge the setting of a story with such scrutiny?

I’d like to hear from others and especially the readers of the world to hear your take on his comment.

This is my first blog with WordPress, so I hope to hear from many others.
