Should I Use Real Places in my Story?

For those of you who missed last month’s Facebook live Ask the Editor video, I’m sharing it here today.

Never mind that I couldn’t seem to say my name that day–the hazards of live video. 🙂  The question is “Should I use real restaurants, stores, and places in my story?” 

Do you have a question for the editor? Post it in the comments below and watch my Facebook page for the next live Ask the Editor.

Want to get published but don’t know where to start?

Maybe you have a finished manuscript or just an idea stuck in your head. Email me today at Deb [at] DebraLButterfield [dot] com, and let's discuss how I can help you reach your dream of publication.


  1. Thanks, Debra. Good advice.

  2. Thank you so much. You answered my questions as to using real places in my story!
