Bestselling author Ted Dekker signed a multi-book deal with Worthy Publishing that gives Worthy the print rights to three young adult books. Eyes Wide Open, the first book in a series of three, will be published in January 2014.

In December of 2012, Dekker self-published a free electronic version of the first installment of Eyes Wide Open, a move that generated over 503,000 downloads and resulted in e-book sales of over 107,000 copies for the full version of Eyes Wide Open. Worthy said its publication of trade editions aims to expand the series well beyond the reach of digital-only readers.Due out next are Water Walker in March and Hacker in May.
