Another award for  Federal Prison HandbookWinner of the 2017 I&I Book Award First Place Blue Ribbon, a division of the Chanticleer International Book Awards.

It was said that, “the competition was exceptionally stiff and the process of choosing the few M&M First Place Award Winners from the Shortlisters was tough.” So, a CIBA First Place Win is something we are very proud of.

Congratulations to all the winners. It is an honor to be among such talented authors.
