Coming in 2009 from Ted Dekker & Thomas Nelson

Thomas Nelson has some fabulous books releasing in the first half of 2009 and here is a look at just two of them.

Ted Dekker has teamed up with debut novelist, Erin Healy writing Kiss, which looks intriguing and I can't wait to see the extra elements Erin will bring to the story.

Sullivan Crisp returns in Healing Waters and I'll share more Thomas Nelson fiction releases soon.

Kiss by Ted Dekker & Erin Healy

After a car accident puts Shauna McAllister in a coma and wipes out six months of her memory, she returns to her childhood home to recover, but her arrival is fraught with confusion. Her estranged father, a senator bidding on t
he White House, and her abusive stepmother blame Shauna for the tragedy, which has left her beloved brother severely brain damaged.

Leaning on Wayne Spade, a forgotten but hopeful lover who stays by her side, Shauna tries to sort out what happened that night by jarring her memory to life. Instead, she acquires a mysterious mental ability that will either lead her to truth or get her killed by the people trying to hide it. In this blind game of cat and mouse that states even the darkest memories in the face, Shauna is sure of only one thing: if she remembers, she dies.

Healing Waters by Nancy Rue and Stephen Arterburn

Lucia Coffey longs to feel good about herself and her body . . . but she can't get the negative voices out of her head.

Lucia has always lived in the shadow of her sister Sophia, a charismatic ministry leader with a huge following. She doesn't feel worthy of her sister or her husband, and her own dreams of being a dancer have long since gone by the wayside. As her self-esteem and self-worth plummet, her struggle to keep her weight under control soars.

But then she meets Sullivan Crisp, the decidedly unorthodox psychologist who is well-known for his quirky sense of humor and incorporation of "game show" theology into his counseling sessions. He sees the beauty hidden in Lucia and sets about trying to help her find it for herself.

Lucia longs for the faith to walk on water. And with the endlessly creative ways God uses our meager efforts to bring hope and new life, she just might find the path that leads her there.

Kiss will be in stores not until January next year. I'm excited to read it! Although I haven't had the time to read House, also by Ted Dekker together with Frank Peretti, I might secure a copy when it'll be released soon.

BTW House will be in theaters on November 7, check out the House' official website, http://housethemovie.net for the list of cities where it'll be shown.

You've got to see House, it's awesome! All the scenes are very creepy, full of suspense! The casts all performed well, pretty convincing and effective!
