“We won the IPPY!” Thousands of authors submitted their books to The Independent Publisher Book Awards. We received a medal in the science category, which is fairly unheard of for such a “niche” book/topic. There was fierce competition and we are very proud of this award!

“Pat McMahan’s, “Agates, The Pat McMahan Collection” is an exceptional masterpiece showcasing some of the finest agates in the world. The presentation is simply excellent and exemplifies the multitude of variations in color and pattern which make agate a true prized possession.  Pat’s collection of agates rank among the very best with this book providing the reader an understanding of not only what constitutes a fine agate, but the painstaking effort involved in bringing these incredible gems to light.  If you have any interest in agates at all, I urge you to obtain a copy of this fine book.”
