2021 Finalists

2021 EIE Award Finalists

Christian Editor Connection’s Excellence in Editing Award celebrates books that are superbly written, well edited, and published by a Christian publisher or self-published by a Christian author during the previous year. Our judges evaluate the entries based on organization, plot and character development (for fiction), flow, clarity, tight writing, accuracy, consistency, lack of typos, and proper use of industry-standard guidelines for punctuation, usage, grammar, and spelling. The competition is fierce.

We are pleased to announce the following Finalists for the 2021 Excellence in Editing Award:

Occasional Moments of Happiness: A Memoir by Shana Donyaei

Published by Banner Publishing

Edited by Dori Harrell (freelance)


Refresh Your Faith: Uncommon Devotions from Every Book of the Bible

    by Lori Hatcher

Published by Our Daily Bread Publishing

Edited by Rachel Kirsch (freelance)

These books will advance to the final round for review.
