Author Interview & Giveaway: Vigilant by Sara Davidson

Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for Vigilant, the first book of The Night Guardians series by Sara Davison, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK Title: Vigilant 
Series: The Night Guardians, Book 1  
Author: Sara Davison 
Publisher: Mountain Brook Ink 
Release Date: June 1, 2019  
Genre: Inspirational Romantic Suspense

She must choose between the man who represents the law and the one who may have taken it into his own hands.

Neglected by her parents for most of her life, Nicole Hunter keeps everyone, especially men, at arms’ length. So when Attorney Gage Kelly walks into the diner where she is waiting tables one evening, she fights her attraction to him with everything she has.

Gage and his brother Holden grew up in an abusive home, and Gage has baggage of his own. But the connection between him and Nicole is too strong to ignore, and Gage manages to convince them both that their relationship is worth the risk.

Then children begin disappearing in the night.

When Detective Daniel Grey starts to close in on the child snatcher, and enlists Nicole’s help, she faces her deepest fear. Everything and everyone she has clung to so tightly could be ripped from her, leaving her completely alone.

Except for one.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am a follower of Jesus Christ and am blessed and proud to be a Canadian, born and raised in Ontario. I dated my husband Michael for ten weeks before we got engaged, and we have been happily married now for twenty-three years. We have three kids, two boys aged 15 and 20 and a 19 year-old-daughter. I have had a life-long love affair with reading and writing, and spend most of my time during the week either writing or editing my own or other people’s books, along with mentoring new writers.

What do you do besides writing?

In my spare time, I enjoy meeting friends for coffee, spending time with my family, watching movies, walking my dogs, going to one of my book clubs (I belong to three) or writers’ groups (two), or being involved with the women’s ministry at my church. I am also a big sports fan (Go Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, and Raptors!) and my youngest son and I love watching or going to live games together.

Do you have images you can share that come close to how you picture your characters? Do you like to find visual inspiration for your characters before or during your writing process?

I don’t usually, but for Vigilant, I actually have come across pictures that reminded me of the three main characters—Sienna Miller for Nicole, Adrian Grenier for Gage, and Brant Daugherty for Daniel.  

What are some songs that you listened to or inspired you while writing your book?

Normally I wouldn’t have an answer for this one, as I can’t listen to music as I write and don’t normally associate music with my stories. However, “Worn” by Tenth Avenue North has always moved me, and every time I hear it I imagine it in the background as the last scene of Vigilant plays across the big screen (I can dream, right?)

What message would you like readers to ultimately take away from the book?

The main message I always want readers to take away from my books is that, whatever they are going through, whatever challenges or tragedies or suffering they are or have endured, they are never alone. Life is hard, but God is so good, he loves us so much, he showers us with grace and mercy, and he promises that he will never leave us or forsake us. That theme runs through everything I write, so hopefully readers will pick up on that and gain hope from it.

What can we look forward to coming from you in the future?

I have three books coming out in the next year or two. I have submitted book two of The Night Guardians Series, Guarded, to my publisher and am about half done writing book three. I am also privileged to be part of an amazing group of authors that is putting out The Mosaic Collection, a series of contemporary Christian novels. Those books will release one a month beginning August 2019. My contribution to the series, the romantic suspense novel Lost Down Deep, will come out in February 2020.
