On Saturday, August 9th, I’ll be signing copies of KHAKI=KILLER at Book World inside South Park Mall. The first two books in the series will also be available for purchase.
“The Color of Evil” series focuses on a young Cedar Falls, Iowa boy, Tad McGreevy, who has a paranormal power to “see” the crimes of those with the color of evil. If Tad has the misfortune to meet a truly evil individual, such as Michael Clay (whom he meets on the occasion of his 8th birthday party when Clay is hired to be a clown at his outdoor birthday party), he wakes, screaming, as he relives the crimes of the person with “the color of evil.”
The problem with Tad’s power is that he doesn’t know if what he sees in nightmares is about to happen or has already happened. He struggles to learn how to use his power to “save” those nearest and dearest to him in Books #1 and #2.
Books in the series have been Stoker honored and have won Pinnacle Thriller, E-Lit, LuckyCinda and IWPA (Illinois Women’s Press Association) awards. In July, the book was featured at International Thriller Writers’ Conerence at the mid-town Manhattan Hyatt Grand Central. Connie will be a panelist at Writers for New Orleans Aug. 28-31, a benefit event for that hurricane-ravaged city.
