SelahAwards-webLighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas (LPC) landed nine finalist spots for the Selah Awards—the most of any publisher.

Eddie Jones, LPC’s founder and publisher, also earned a nod in the Young Adult Fiction category for his Dead Low Tide (Zonderkidz), as did Ann Tatlock, acquisitions and managing editor for LPC’s historical fiction imprint, in Fiction: Historical for Sweet Mercy (Bethany House/Baker Publishing Group).

The Selah Awards are open industry wide and internationally to authors published by traditional and nontraditional publishing houses during the previous year. Finalists were named in 13 categories this year, including eight fiction categories.

The awards will be presented May 21 in Ridgecrest, North Carolina, at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. Alton Gansky is director of the Blue Ridge conference and Eva Marie Everson is contest director. The 2014 Book of the Year award will be chosen by the contest director from among the top scores/first-place recipients.

HarperCollins Christian Publishers was also among the finalists with the second-most titles at five—three for Thomas Nelson and two for Zondervan. Barbour Publishing was next with three finalists, while B&H Kids, Abingdon Press, Moody Publishers, Kregel Publications, Revell/Baker Publishing Group and Regal also received nods, among others.

Thanks to the support of Crossbooks and LifeWay/Ridgecrest, the banquet will be telecast live over the Internet. Click here to access the live stream during the awards banquet.
