An instructor at Darton State College is on the list - the hottest new releases list at!

According to a press release issued by Darton State College, Manswell Peterson is an instructor and the program coordinator of criminal justice at Darton State College since September 2011. He landed on Amazon's best-selling author list last week with his latest book entitled Tracks of My Tears.

It took Peterson's new book, which was released on Monday, June 11, just seven hours to reach the number one spot on the "Hottest New Releases" list said Darton in the release.

The book is based on Peterson's childhood and is filled with inspiration and determination. "The book communicates to readers that ones future does not have to be determined by past or present circumstances," Peterson said. "It is proof that faith, perseverance, and resiliency can change the course of ones future."

Darton says that this is Peterson's sixth book; his first book was published in June 2007. Unlike his previous five books, which were romance novels, Tracks of My Tears is Peterson's first non-fiction novel.
