TheKingStevenJames-webSteven James, Tosca Lee and other authors received nods in The Christian Manifesto’s 2013 Lime Awards. For the first time, the Lime Awards also included nonfiction titles. The awards are broken into 11 fiction and six nonfiction categories, and winning books are nominated and chosen by reviewers at The Christian Manifesto.

James won the Crime & Legal Fiction category for the second year running with the most recent book in his “The Bowers Files” series, The King (Signet Select), beating No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Michael Connelly’s The Gods of Guilt (Little, Brown) and A Matter of Trust by Lis Wiehl with April Henry (Thomas Nelson).

Ted Dekker co-author Lee won the Biblical & Historical Fiction category for her portrayal of Judas in Iscariot (Howard Books). The Outcast by Jolina Petersheim (Tyndale House Publishers) won the Amish Fiction category, and Janice Thompson’s Icing on the Cake (Revell/Baker Publishing Group) took home the Contemporary Romance prize.

In nonfiction, Holley Gerth’s You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream (Revell/Baker Publishing Group) won the Christian Living category. Fight by Preston Sprinkle with Andrew Rillera (David C Cook) won the Social Issues category, while Richard Jesse Wilson’s Psalm 23 (Zonderkidz) won the award for Children’s Non-Fiction.
