Out of Chaos is a harrowing true story of choices and consequences.

As a teenager, Elle Mott descended into hopelessness. Her life as a criminal and a vagrant led her deeper into the darkness. Balancing multiple identities, the more secrets she kept, the more lies she needed. She sheds personas, rebelling against who she was and who she’s becoming, but thousands of hitchhiked miles can’t distance her from the crushing expectations of her great-grandmother’s legacy.

Until she surrenders to herself, she will never find her way out of chaos.

Elle Mott is an established writer, living in Northern Kentucky. You can learn more about her on her website, www.ElleMottAuthor.com.

“Elle Mott doesn’t sugarcoat,” Emily Hitchcock, COO of Boyle & Dalton, said. “Instead, she gives us an intimate, unflinching look at transiency, alcoholism, and the chaos of identities constantly uprooted.”

This cozy mystery follows Claire, a spunky but bored ghostwriter living in a small city in Ohio.

First Claire finds cryptic messages written in a foreign language she doesn’t recognize.  Then a mysterious package arrives. When her estranged French aunt shows up on her doorstep only to suddenly disappear again, Claire’s world begins to dissolve.

Amidst her self-obsessed boss, a mysterious oil tycoon, nosy neighbors, and an active police investigation, something strange is happening in town and Claire is stuck in the middle of it.

Francoise Bartram was born in France. She lived near Paris until she moved to the United States to join her husband, a member of the U.S. Air Force. She now lives in Columbus, Ohio.

The manuscript and book concept were developed with assistance from Brad Pauquette. The cover design was crafted by Cate Labish.

“French Leave is the type of book that takes you along for the ride,” Emily Hitchcock, COO of Boyle & Dalton, said. “Claire’s snappy personality leaves the reader drinking wine in the kitchen deciphering clues, dodging bullets, and deep-sighing over family antics.”

PR: “Sister of Saidnaya” National Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jan. 10, 2018

Boyle & Dalton Releases Sister of Saidnaya by Rose Ann Kalister

Zanesville, OH — Boyle & Dalton, publisher of exceptional fiction and non-fiction, has released Rose Ann Kalister’s debut novel: Sister of Saidnaya: A Syrian Immigrant’s Tale to all major paperback and e-book markets.

In 1921, a young Nadra Zahir traveled by boat from the small Christian village of Saidnaya, Syria, to the ports of Boston, and on to Hedley, West Virginia. With little education, Nadra navigates an industrialized nation as a fierce immigrant woman, her potential torn between the expectations of her heritage, and the temptation of independence in the new world.

This book is an eye-opening read for anyone following current events. Nadra’s experiences immerse us in the immigrant experience, her biting wit and tenacity revealing more than a plethora of detached news reports.

Rosalie Ungar, author of In a Heartbeat, praises: “Rose Ann Kalister captures the history of Middle Eastern immigrants in the early 1920s, building a Syrian family saga into a dramatic and delightful story. Sister of Saidnaya portrays Nadra’s hopes and courage in the frequently hostile and often comical world of family and in-laws. I highly recommend this book.”

Sister of Saidnaya is distributed in paperback form nationally, and is available for download on all major e-reader devices.

Boyle & Dalton is an independent hybrid publisher. They vet all submissions for quality prior to publishing in order to uphold the high standard of the Boyle & Dalton brand.

“You go we all go!” Lila said as she stepped closer to Sami.

“I can’t afford to take us and the four girls!”

“Two of them can stay behind. Mama offered to care for them. Sitto is convinced we will return. We can send for them when we’re settled.”

Nadra crept away quietly, but her heart was shouting, take me, please. She didn’t want her big sisters to be left behind, but if someone had to stay, she didn’t want to be the one.
