Publishing Spotlight — Dealing with This Thing Called Life

Ebook_Cover_SumlinChristopher Michael Sumlin’s inspiration is contagious. He finds life lessons in trials, in moments of stress and anxiety, and in those happy moments that many of us take for granted.

While encouraging his friends and colleagues, Chris discovered a hole in the market where self-help books for young people should be. Determined to create a tool to help his peers, Chris wrote Dealing with This Thing Called Life. Through relatable anecdotes from his own life, Chris encourages, entertains, and motivates men and women alike to bust negative thinking and persevere toward greatness instead.

…before you know it you feel like you are with the author at a coffee shop listening to his stories. I am encouraged, empowered, and motivated by this book… I was able to finish it in one sitting, but I know I will be able to refer back to it to remind me of the pearls of wisdom found in his book.

–Patricia de Souza, Professor, Claflin University

Dealing with This Thing Called Life was released by Boyle & Dalton in spring of 2016. Like all Boyle & Dalton books, Dealing with This Thing Called Life was vetted for quality prior to acceptance.

Publishing Announcement — The Black Lens

We’re excited to announce the release of Chrisopher Stollar’s thrilling novel, The Black black_lens_front_coverLens. Told through the eyes of a fierce female protagonist, Stollar’s book delves into the horrors of the sex industry–and how close to home traffickers can prey.

In a dark world of meth addiction, trailer parks and abuse, Zoey has seen it all. But when she and her disabled sister are forced into a small-town sex ring, the teenage girls find out just how brutal the world can be. And when someone kills her mother as retaliation for a failed escape attempt, Zoey decides to fight back.

Teaming up with a photojournalist, Zoey exposes wealthy and powerful men who play in the dirty, back-alley world of modern slavery. The price for her cooperation is freedom. The cost of failure is her life.

The Black Lens is both compelling and heart wrenching. It shows the realistic, complex components of human trafficking in the United States. I know only too well how easily this can happen and how hard it is to escape. Excellent writing!”

— Theresa Flores, survivor of human trafficking, founder of TraffickFree and best-selling author of The Slave Across the Street

Stollar is a former reporter with a master’s degree in journalism. He spent over three years conducting research on sex trafficking for The Black Lens, which included interviews with prostitutes, police officers and social workers.

PR: “What If I Had a Father?” National Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Feb. 3, 2015

Boyle & Dalton Releases What If I Had a Father? by Mike Dean

Columbus, OH — Boyle & Dalton, a publisher of exceptional fiction and non-fiction, has released Mike Dean’s debut memoir: What If I Had a Father? The Man I Never Knew, to all major hardback, paperback and e-book markets.

Two people shape a child’s life: a mother and a father. Dean grew up in Columbus, Ohio with his mother but not his father. The one big question in his life was the root of nearly all of the decisions he made growing up — “What if I had a father?”

The absence of a father threw Dean into a statistical framework that has been proven to lead to a life wasted. By God’s grace, with some powerful relationships and the consistent guide of a national organization, he overcame those challenges. The biggest question of his life became a tool to fix his brokenness and live the life of abundant grace God intended.

Dorothy Stoneman, founder and CEO of YouthBuild USA, praises: “Mike Dean tells the story of his childhood with an open heart, a questioning mind, a poetic spirit, and deep empathy and compassion for everyone he has encountered.”

What If I Had a Father? is distributed in paperback and hardback form nationally, and is available for download on all major e-reader devices.

Boyle & Dalton is a hybrid publisher based in Columbus, Ohio. They vet all submissions for quality prior to publishing in order to uphold the high standard of the Boyle & Dalton brand.
