Win Delia Latham's Latest

Today’s guest is author Delia Latham. Today is Delia's birthday and she is on a virtual blog tour today talking about her new novel, Kylie’s Kiss, and giving away copies. She will give away one pdf copy of her book for every six blogs she visits. Last count she had over two dozen blogs scheduled for today. That means she'll be giving away at least four pdf copies of her Solomon's Gate series books to four readers who leave comments at any or all of the various blogs. Winners may choose either Destiny's Dream (Book One) or Kylie's Kiss (Book Two).

Born and raised in a place called Weedpatch, Delia Latham moved from California to Oklahoma in 2008, making her a self-proclaimed California Okie. She loves to read and write in her simple country home, and gets a kick out of watching her husband play Farmer John. The author enjoys multiple roles as Christian wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, but especially loves being a princess daughter to the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. She loves to hear from her readers. You may connect with her through her website, blog, newsletter, or send an e-mail to Delia(at)delialatham(dot)net.

 From the Book’s Back Cover:
On a dare, Kylie Matthews lands smack in the middle of Solomon’s Gate—Castle Creek’s new Christian dating agency—and she finds herself revealing exactly what she’s waiting for in a relationship: “The kiss that steals my breath away.”
What she doesn’t reveal is her lack of self-esteem or her irrational reaction to facial disfigurement. Neither is applicable to her quest to find the perfect match. But that seemingly superficial malady becomes all-important when her first agency-arranged date is Rick Dale—a man who is everything Kylie is searching for. He’s handsome, smart, fun. Rick has it all…including an angelic six-year-old daughter with severe scarring on one side of her face. 

Hard at work founding a therapy camp for young female victims of deformity or disfigurement, Rick wants Kylie to be a part of those plans. She’d love to say yes…but how can she, when every contact with the facility’s guests—and Rick’s own daughter—will make her violently ill?
Kylie is ready to admit their relationship doesn’t stand a chance, but she’s forgotten that God makes a way where there seems no way.

From Jo:

Delia Latham makes her characters come alive. The book’s a page turner as Kylie gets into one predicament after another. I hope the story will help readers to see that one’s beauty truly is what’s inside, which helps mask any abnormalities on the outside.

  1. Hi, Jo! I'm Kylie Matthews, the heroine of Kylie's Kiss, and I'm so pleased to be here today. Delia will be along in a while, but I do know she's honored that you've allowed us to visit today.
    I look forward to chatting with you and your readers, and answering any questions or comments about my own story (Kylie's Kiss) or any of the Solomon's Gate books. Readers, don't be shy! Let's talk... :)

  2. Would love to win the necklace. I believe in the power of anointing oil.

  3. Jo, thank you so much for hosting Delia and me today! I was by earlier and left a comment...I'm not sure what's happening to them, but they seem to be disappearing into Cyberspace. :( I apologize, since it "looks" like we skipped out today, which we did not do! Jo, I'm glad you enjoyed my story. God certainly did a work in me during the course of it, and I will be eternally grateful!

  4. You are entered, Linda! Thank you for tagging along with Kylie and me yesterday! :)

    Jo, thank you for hosting us. I apologize...I realized sometime during the day that your link wasn't working properly, and had to go in and "operate" on it. I still don't know what caused the glitch, but I'm sure it's why visitors couldn't find you. :(

    I'm gathering names for the 1st prize drawing, and will make an announcement within the hour. Readers, remember to keep leaving comments to this post throughout June 30th for the follow-up drawings! :)
