Where Sabrina Reigns, Queen of the Colony

I'm recovering from the weird, weird world of Salem MA after attending the literary festival last weekend. I'm surprised there aren't thousands of novels set in that town. Interesting characters haunt every corner. History and tragedy and cheesy tourism come together in a rich slurry. It reminds me a tiny bit of New Orleans, though I'm sure I'd get a lot of flack from either set of locals about that.

I can't imagine actually being one of those locals, or spending enough time there to use it as a primary setting.

But it could be a place where one of my characters goes for the day and encounters...

Guess I'd better save that for the book.

  1. Sort of like Savannah, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. One feels either that they're in a fascinating place with history and colorful locals, or that they're suckers in a tourist trap.

    Thx for the comments. There is a new post in the works soon.
