Her writing was fiction,

until a killer made the danger very real…

A serial killer’s imitating crime scenes from Addison Keller’s bestselling novel, determined to make her the final victim. But with former police officer Jace Montana and his dog at her side, Addison might just be able to unmask the murderer. With time running out as the killer closes in, she must confront her past and unravel long-buried secrets…and hope they can all escape with their lives.

 

A Work Day at the Beach

By Addison Keller


One of the best parts of living on Long Island is never being more than a short ride (or walk) from the beach! One of my favorite beaches is only a few miles from my house, and it’s never crowded. Before I head out, I pack my kindle (lots of reading choices), a spiral notebook and pen (since my best writing ideas always hit me when I have no way to write them down, and the beach is one of my favorite places to write), sunscreen (wouldn’t want book tan lines across my stomach or lap) in the summer, though I do like to go in the fall and spring too, and a couple of towels (one to sit on, one to keep my bag on so I don’t get sand in my kindle), a diet soda (because I’m addicted), and baby powder (nothing takes sand off at the end of the day like baby powder!)

I drive two miles and park in a small dirt lot, then hoist my bag over my shoulder and walk about a mile on a trail through the woods to the beach. Walking gives me plenty of time to clear my head, relax, unwind, and think about what I want to write (unless I happen to be writing a scene where a killer is stalking a woman through the woods. Then, not so much.) Not to mention, it’s great exercise.




That first glimpse of the water always brings a rush of relief, and I can’t wait to get my notebook out and jot down all the ideas that are usually cluttering up my head by that point.




The first thing I do is take off my shoes and dig my feet into the warm sand. It feels so amazing! Then I set up and start writing. I prefer to do my writing or outlining first, so I can relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility once I’m done. That is,
if I have any time left before I have to start running around, doing chores, making dinner… You get the idea! But back to that peace and tranquility.




As far as offices go, I really can’t complain. Although I’ve never tried bringing my laptop with me, the beach is the perfect place to outline a new story, plot a good murder, or plan a scene. The warm sun, soft breeze, and sound of the water gently lapping against the shore bring me a sense of peace I don’t find anywhere else.

Wait! Stop! Are you leaving the same old comment on all the blog pages? Try switching things up a bit. I love reading your comments, but if its the same thing each time... it feels like spam. And NO ONE likes spam...
