Book Blog Tour: The Color of Evil and Giveaway Ends 7/9! #spon

Posted by on June 24, 2012

Connie Corcoran Wilson, Author of “The Color of Evil”

Tad McGreevy has a power that he has never revealed, not even to his life-long best friend, Stevie Scranton.  When Tad looks at others, he sees colors.  These auras tell Tad whether a person is good or evil.  At night, Tad dreams about the evil-doers, reliving their crimes in horrifyingly vivid detail. 

But Tad doesn’t know if the evil acts he witnesses in his nightmares are happening now, are already over, or are going to occur in the future.  All Tad knows is that he wants to protect those he loves.  And he wants the bad dreams to stop.  

This is a terrifying, intense story of the dark people and places that lurk just beneath the surface of seemingly normal small-town life.

It’s been awhile since I sat down to read a horror story, but this one was different.  This one made me want to keep reading wanting to know what would happen next, and who would be affected.  Connie Corcoran Wilson did a great job of connecting the characters involved, and by the end you truly had your favorites.  But yes, there are a few gruesome parts.

This book really gives light into the possibilities of what a serial killer is capable of, in the creation of “Michael Clay” aka Pogo the Clown, and what extreme they will go in order to keep their freedom.

This book was also a fairly easy read, in which, Wilson gave insight into each of the character’s involved.  And it only left me asking, “Where will Tad McGreevy take us next?”  This is only the first in the trilogy she has written about Tad McGreevy and the small Cedar Rapids, Iowa community he resides in.

And now you have an opportunity to win a book of  your own:

    Dear Jamie:
    I’m glad you enjoyed the book. Technically, it’s my very first novel (although I co-wrote “Out of Time” for Lachesis Press in 2008 and did most of the work). I hope someone (other than me or Teddy) leaves a comment, as I’d like to have a new reader to send a book to, in either paperback or E-book format.

    The book recently won the Gold Medal in the E-Lit category and was part of the Silver Feather Award given by the IWPA (Illinois Women’s Press Association).

    Thanks, again, Jamie.

    Sincerely,

    Connie (Corcoran) Wilson
