Enabler Alert!!!    Your Wish List will grow (don't blame me) !!! 

Someone had asked if there was still a thread for checking out new publications of Christian Fiction.  I don't know if there had been one but decided to start a new one.

Feel free to add your own and I will try to keep the main list updated.


Work in Progress! :P

I know but someone asked for a list so I thought that I would just enable all of us.  Though from the counts on some of the books already, a lot have been enabled for a while.  :P

Updated the list through here.  I found a great source for new releases - Christianbook.com.  It will just take me a little while to get through them.

Coming out in January 2010.  I'll look for some PBS links.


1. A Stray Drop of Blood, by Roseanna M. Whitefrom Whitefire Publishing. Born free, made a slave, married out of her bonds, Abigail never knows freedom until she feels the fire of a stray drop of blood from a Jewish carpenter.

2. A Deadly Wilderness, by Kelly Irvinfrom Five Star/Gale/Cengage. A family that will stop at nothing to protect its secrets and a drug cartel hit man are just two of the pieces to the puzzle Homicide Detective Ray Johnson must solve to find a murderer—and save his own life.

3. Becoming Lucy - The Winds Across the Prairie Series by Martha Rogersfrom Realms Division of Strang Communications. An alleged murderer reclaims his life, but can he reclaim his beloved?

4. Burn by Erin Healy and Ted Dekkerfrom Thomas Nelson. A supernatural thriller about a woman who gets an unwanted chance to extinguish her fiery past.

5. First Impressions by Michelle Sutton from Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc. Playing the role of a saloon girl taught her how to flirt, but it makes a lousy first impression on the man whose heart she longs to win. (No PBS link)

6. Jenna's Cowboy, Callahans of Texas 1 by Sharon Gillenwaterfrom Baker/Revell. Will Jenna's love enable Nate to put the horrors of war behind him and become the man she deserves?

7. Never Far from Home, 2nd in the Miller Family Series by Mary Ellisfrom Harvest House Publishers. Emma's rebellious Rumschpringe may lead to her banishment as friendship turns to love with the English sheepfarmer.

8. Plain Jane by Hillary Manton Lodge from Harvest House Publishers. Girl reporter Jayne Tate finds more than she bargained for when she goes to Amish Country to research a story. (No PBS link)

9. Sworn to Protect by DiAnn Millsfrom Tyndale. Danika Morales has sworn to protect our nation's borders. But that oath has come with a price.  (Publication date is actually April -- Already on Cynthia's list)

10. The Chic Shall Inherit the Earth, All About Us #6 by Shelley Adinafrom Hatchette FaithWords. At exclusive SpencerAcademy, Lissa Mansfield gains popularity when she replaces her nemesis, Vanessa, on the senior Cotillion committee, but graduation and major decisions about the future loom.

11. The Choice, Lancaster County Secrets Book 1 by Suzanne Woods Fisherfrom Revell. A tender story of love and forgiveness, "The Choice" uncovers the sweet simplicity of the Amish world--and shows it's never too late to find your way back to God.

12. The Husband Tree, Montana Marriages series by Mary Connealyfrom Barbour. A tough lady rancher drags a reluctant cowhand on a cattledrive, along with her four daughters.

Yes, the books I listed have already been published -- in January.   I guess you are only including books that have not been published yet == that's why there is no January on your list   DUH.

At least I found more books to add to my WL, if not Cynthia's list.

It just does not like me trying to edit on my work computer.  Here are the ones that I am going to add to the front later tonight.


A good many didn't have descriptions so I have submitted edits to add them.


All moved to the front and combined.

Mine will probably be waiting on me when I get home.  CBD is where I got a lot of these from.  They have a section to look up those are coming soon.  Bethany House had a good site for looking theirs up also.

I was at WalMart tonight.  They had the new Deeanne Gist book "Beguiled"...I had my grubby paws on it, but put it back.  I'm pretty high on the WL so I think I'll wait.
