LOVE SOMEONE TODAY: Encouragement and Inspiration for the Times of Our Lives

Delilah, Author . Fireside $20 (272p) ISBN 978-0-7432-1078-2

A syndicated radio personality who listens nightly to callers' stories of love and selects music specifically for them, Delilah laughs, cries and counsels from her Seattle studio. Over a lengthy career in radio, she has developed her own style, telling listeners—and now readers—heartfelt, down-to-earth stories from her own life. Her warmth and open-mindedness along with an unusually full life make her more than qualified to convey the principle that "when love is involved, there are no insignificant acts... every time you love someone even a little bit, something gigantic happens." Here, Delilah, a white woman, tells of her wild youth, of family relationships both difficult and loving, addiction recovery, her biracial son from her first marriage to an African-American man, her years of single motherhood, her three adopted African-American children and two more children with her current husband, who is Hispanic and nine years her junior. She writes about losing jobs, money, relationships, friends, homes and a beloved brother who died in a plane crash. Sharing her faith in God without evangelizing any particular religion, Delilah organizes her thoughts around Bible passages even nonbelievers know, such as "To everything there is a season." She muses over birth, death, planting, mourning, laughing, dancing, silence, gathering strength and breaking down. In this wonderful addition to the inspiration genre, Delilah demonstrates her surpassing candor, charisma and intensity without sentimentality. (May)

Forecast:These excellent inspirational stories will likely resonate with the Oprah crowd and garner major nationwide interest. The author's syndicated radio show provides built-in national publicity and a guaranteed readership.
