Today I’m super excited to host Sara Walsh and her debut The Dark Light on the Bookworms. The wonderful Mia – main character of The Dark Light took her time, drank a coffee with me and chatted a little about her journey!
and… I have a wonderful Giveaway for you at the end!
So, please welcome Mia – our fearless heroine who snatched this awesome boy with the big tattoo on his back ..
Hi Mia! Thank you so much for taking your time to visit me here and answer some of my questions!! Take a seat and make yourself comfortable, Tee or Coffee?
Mia: Coffee! Always coffee. Or a chocolate shake!
Ahhh a my Girl!! !I couldn’t live without coffee!! So Mia, you had quite a journey but now you are safely back home! What was the most frightening that happened to you and what was the best?
Mia :Most frightening was not knowing if I’d ever get Jay back, and realizing that we were both involved in something much bigger than I’d ever known existed. The best part was the people I met. I would have gone crazy without Delane. And then there was Sol…
OoOo Sol!… Mia let’s talk about Sol! What did you think when you first saw this incredibly gorgeous man?
Mia: I don’t think any of us knew what to think when we first saw Sol. We were all laughing and joking about how hot he was, which was definitely true. I’d heard about him, but I’d never expected him to be so… ripped. There just weren’t any guys at school that looked like Sol.
Sol has a very prominent and vivid tattoo on his back. What did you think this means when you first saw it?
Mia: The first thing I wanted to know when I saw Sol’s tattoo was where he’d gotten it from. I mean, it was huge–bigger than any tattoo I’d ever seen. And the colors were so bright. It was totally different. A tattoo that big had to mean something, but I had no idea what it was. I knew I had to find out.
I remember when you found out about Sol’s secret. I was shocked but also mesmerized! What did you think when you found out. Can you share this with us without revealing his secret?
Mia: Sol had lots of secrets, but I think I know which one you mean. I’d gotten to the point where I could almost believe anything, but I wasn’t sure if I could ever believe that. But then everything kind of clicked into place and his secret made sense. It felt right. I just wish he’d have told me sooner. I mean, I couldn’t speak when I found out! But then that’s Sol. He does everything for a reason.
I love the relationship you have with your brother, would you tell us what he means to you?
Mia: Jay means everything to me. Period. He’s the coolest kid ever. All I wanted was for him to stay that way and not have to deal with the crap that I’d had to deal with. If ever I’d start to feel down, I’d just think about Jay and everything would start to make sense.
Was it hard growing up without real family besides your brother? You had to grow up very fast….
Mia: To be honest, I never really thought about it. My numbers didn’t come up on the parent lottery, and I had just had to deal with that and move on. I had Grandma, until she died. Then I had Pete, even if he is completely useless. I can take care of myself, but Jay’s only ten, so he’s more important. As long as Jay’s okay, then everything’s fine by me. It’s not his fault–or mine–that our Dad was a complete loser.
If you would have the chance to go back, never finding out who you are but also never meeting Sol, what would you choose?
Mia: I’d choose to know. And I’d choose to meet Sol. Every time.
*me sighs heavily…*
About The Dark Light
The Dark Light by Sara Walsh on goodreads:
Mia is torn between two guys—and two worlds—in this epic, romantic fantasy.Mysterious lights have flickered above Crownsville for as long as Mia can remember. And as far as she’s concerned, that’s about the only interesting thing to happen in her small town.
That is, until Sol arrives. Mia’s not one to fall for just any guy, but she can’t get Sol—or the brilliant tattoo on his back—out of her mind.
Then Mia’s brother goes missing, and Mia’s convinced that Sol knows more than he’s sharing. But getting closer to Sol means reevaluating everything Mia once believed to be true. Because Sol’s not who Mia thought he was—and neither is she.
