MEET DELIA

WHO'S DELIA?

unmatched, Salvation Army-furnished bedroom. It was the most elegant item I had ever owned, and I was one proud little lassie.  (Ahem ... surely someone  else remembers those dollies?)​

Winning that contest made a profound impact on my young psyche - enough so that I never stopped writing. From those first little songs and poems and (very bad) short stories, I graduated to Staff Writer for a large daily newspaper; freelanced for an upper-scale regional magazine; and finally began writing fiction...which was my goal all along.

Be sure to bookmark my site (go on - do it now, while it's on your mind!), and visit often.

If you enjoy good, clean, homespun Christian romance, you're in the right place.  Kick off your shoes and sit a spell....
Oh, there you are - I'm so glad you found me! Please make yourself at home, and let's get acquainted. I'll go first... :)

A born-and-bred California gal, I grew up in a little community called Weedpatch. Nope, that's not a typo. It's a few miles southeast of Bakersfield, and in the...well, I won't say how many years since I left there... Weedpatch has even found its way onto a map or two. I live in East Texas these days, but California will always have a piece of my heart.

Writing has been my passion since third grade, when I won an essay writing contest and took home the coveted prize: a beautiful bed doll with an overstuffed pink, quilted satin skirt. Remember them? Huge, padded skirts, some (like mine) with flat cardboard bottoms to accommodate display. The doll's feet were hidden away somewhere in all that finery, never again to see the light of day.  These fancy ladies were most often used as centerpieces for beds, and that's where mine went - smack in the middle of my unimposing bed in my

Official Bio

Delia Latham and her husband Johnny live in beautiful East Texas, where a shamefully pampered Pomeranian named Kona allows them to share her home. Delia enjoys her many life roles as wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend—but above all, she treasures her role as a princess daughter to the King of kings. She writes inspirational romance that almost always includes a touch of the divine in the form of angels or angelic activity, thus her tagline of "Heaven's touch in earthly tales."

A former newspaper Staff Writer and frequent contributor to her hometown’s regional publication, Bakersfield Magazine, Delia has also freelanced projects to public relations firms and magazines; compiled, edited, and designed cover art for various Kindness Incorporated projects; and sold greeting card verse. Many of her short stories, articles, and devotions can be found online. When she's not writing, she designs cover art and marketing materials for other authors.

Would you like to be a Messenger?

Do you love to read? Do you enjoy Christian and/or sweet romance? How about angels? Miracles? Second chance and redemption stories? So do I...and those are the things I write about. 

I wonder if you'd be interested in joining my street team, The Messengers? Let's talk about it...

What's a street team?

An author's street team members help spread the word about upcoming releases and events. When I have a new release coming up, you'll help me get a little buzz going about it by posting memes, tweets, etc., and talking up the book to your reader friends. One of the really important things a street team member does is to write short reviews and post them to various websites where books are sold, reviewed, discussed, or otherwise brought into the eye of the public -- sites like Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, my publisher's website, etc.

What's in it for you?

  • You'll get free electronic copies of the book, either shortly before or immediately after it's released. I will, now and then, run some kind of contest in which you might win a signed, print copy, as well.
  • You’ll also get free bookmarks, postcards, and from time to time, other swag that I might happen to order.
  • You'll have the opportunity to offer feedback on future stories. Sometimes I'll take a Messenger poll about a character's name, the title of a book, what each person would do in a given situation, etc. This is fun!
  • When a Messenger goes above and beyond, I might even dedicate a book to that special angel, or mention him/her in the acknowledgements of an upcoming book.
  • You’ll have access to a secret Facebook group  where I’ll post news about upcoming releases, and info for you to share on your social media networks. Also, that's where we can chat about books, romance, angels, the ridiculous stuff we see online...whatever comes up, as long as its clean and edifying.
  • If you have a Facebook group or blog, and would like to give away one of my eBooks, give me a holler. Chances are, I'll be able to accommodate.

Sound like fun? Want to give it a try? Here's what I'll need from you:

  • A commitment to funnel your enthusiasm into sharing my new released and event information with friends through social media.
  • A commitment to post at least (2) two photos of book covers when you receive them.
  • A commitment to post a book review on Amazon (fair and honest reviews, of course), within a reasonable time frame of receiving the book. Reviews posted elsewhere are awesome and appreciated, as well.
  • A solemn promise NOT to share your free copies of my eBooks. They are meant for you and you alone. I appreciate your dedication to respecting the work I put into writing by not making it free to the general public.

Still in? Wonderful! Fill out the application and let's get started. 

Naturally there are only so many free books in this world, so not every reader can join. I’ll only be accepting applications for a limited time, and while I appreciate your interest, please understand that requests to join The Messengers are considered on a case-by-case basis.  

I want in!
