Kurt Johnson Book Award

Picone Advisory Group, LLC is proud to announce that our client and author Kurt Johnson has won the 2017 Moonbeam Silver Award for Best First Book.  Entries for this award are submitted from the United States, Canada and six international countries.  The science fiction fantasy novel, Raystar of Terra: Peace. Love. Family. War, was originally published in December of 2016.  The book chronicles the adventures of Raystar, a 13-year-old resident of the sleepy agricultural planet Nem.  Raystar leads a near picture perfect existence until her world radically changes when the pan-Galactic conflict that everyone thought was long over shows up on her doorstep.  The Moonbeam Awards were created in 2006 and are presented by Jenkins Group Inc. located in Traverse City, Michigan.  Jenkins Group has been involved in packaging, marketing, and distributing books since 1988.  We congratulate Kurt on being selected for this prestigious award.
