EWC Instructor to Release First Western Poetry Book and Novel

Friday, April 12th, 2013 • 12:46 pm

Eastern Wyoming College Instructor John Nesbitt has announced the release of his first western poetry book.  Thorns on the Rose features thirty-two poems of western life.
“I’ve been writing poetry longer than anything else.  I’ve just spent more energy and time writing fiction.  Some of the poems in this book have also appeared in my other works as songs and ballads,” shared Nesbitt.
This book of western poems is available as an ebook at westerntrailblazer.com, Amazon, Smashwords and Barnes and Noble.  It is also available in print at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
In July, Nesbitt’s twentieth traditional western novel will be available for purchase.  Dark Prairie is a frontier mystery and will be the first novel released as part of a new frontier line by Five Star Publishing.  This hard cover book will be available through all the regular retail outlets, including online bookstores as well as physical bookstores such as Barnes and Noble.
Dark Prairie, which takes place in Wyoming in the 1890’s, is a story in which a stranger named Dunbar comes to the town of Winsome.  He is on the trail of a serial killer.  Shortly before his arrival, a young girl named Annie Mora disappeared.  Dunbar brings the guilt to light, links it to earlier crimes, and punishes the perpetrator in mortal combat.
“I am very happy to see Dark Prairie released in this new series.  I have had some of my best success, including some nice awards a couple of years back, with my crossover western mysteries, and this novel continues in that style,” added Nesbitt.
On May 2nd, EWC will host a Business After Hours highlighting new construction on the North Campus from 5 to 6:30 pm.  During this event a book signing will be held by Nesbitt highlighting his new releases and he will also have many of his works available for sale.
Nesbitt teaches English and Spanish at the College.
