J. EVERETT PREWITT RECEIVES FIFTH AWARD

Cleveland, Ohio, October 28, 2016…The Independent Publishers of New England announced that A Long Way Back, by J. Everett Prewitt was a first place winner during its October 2016 publisher’s conference.

In A Long Way Back, Black soldiers thought to be killed in action mysteriously reappear in Cu Chi, Vietnam. A curious war correspondent uncovers an illegal army mission gone awry. The novel is an intriguing glimpse into the Vietnam War, merging the lives of the soldiers and the reporter as they struggle to overcome their fears and face the battles each must fight to survive.

Since its publication, A Long Way Back has received the Seal of Approval from Literary Classics.  The novel was awarded the Bronze Award from Foreword Magazine’s 2016 INDIES Award, the DQ Award from IBPA’s Benjamin Franklin Award, the Silver award from Literary Classics, and was a finalist for the Montaigne Medal from the Eric Hoffer Awards.

Responses to the book have been positive: “…this is an intelligently crafted tale, brimming with both suspense and social commentary,” says Kirkus Reviews. “A Long Way Back is a powerful and compelling novel,” says Literary Classics. “A Long Way Back is an excellent read…J. Everett Prewitt is an excellent writer and his writing style is realistic, intense, and seems to accurately capture the time period and military life…This book does everything well including pacing, character development, and the storyline itself. It is clear that Prewitt is a good author who is well within his wheelhouse on this one…” says Readers Views.

A Long Way Back has also garnered a five-star rating from Amazon.com.

Everett Prewitt is a Viet Nam veteran and former Army officer. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, and a Master of Science Degree in Urban Studies from Cleveland State University.
