Setting: Sixth Circle

Hey guys, whoever reads this. We know we have only been posting teasers, so we want to try something new.

One of the most important parts of a story is setting. Setting affects the mood and tone of the story. For example, I'm sure everyone is familiar with the Legend of Sleepy Hollow? Would you think it would be as scary if the story was set in sunny Southern California? Setting means time, place, and customs too. For example, Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Would some of the main topics in the story be viewed the same if the story was set in 2009? Your answer would be know, I'm guessing, since, well, the customs have pretty much changed from since then.

Setting is essential to a good book. And if the setting and the plot ties together--which they usually do--I call that a good book.

So to tie things up with our current WIP, we are posting pictures of the settings in Sixth Circle. :D

Here it is:

This is the town of Goldwater. Small but filled with so many secrets.

Welcome to Strathill. A community, a school, and a dangerous place to be.

There is something off about Brystol Lake...

Woodsworth Pines. Nothing but woods and...something completely frightening.

Sparrow Claw. The highest point in Goldwater. Wanna know why its called what its called? Because only the Sparrows get away alive. Careful, don't trip.
