Publishing Announcement — Mons Graupius

CoverWe’re excited to announce the release of Mons Graupius by M.G. Anderson. This beautifully written tale follows Moira Fiorelli, an upper-middle class girl in post-war Edinburgh, who yearns to become a mountaineer — a bold choice at a time when there are very few women climbers. On her route to her summits she faces the ups and downs of romance, falling precipitously and disastrously for the most unsuitable man possible.

Find a copy of Mons Graupius here, or ask for it at your favorite bookstore.

Mons Graupius mixes eloquent prose, a spitfire snob of a female protagonist, and harrowing mountaineering adventures–all set in the summits of Scotland.

“A highly entertaining read. The beguiling shifts in the narrative … give the writing a distinctive voice, characterised by sustained wry humour which kept me chuckling from page to page. These are juxtaposed with lyrical descriptive passages which transport the reader to magical – sometimes nerve-tingling – sojourns in the high and wild places of the Scottish mountains and the Alps.”

–Amazon.com reviewer

Mons Graupius was vetted for quality before its acceptance as a Boyle & Dalton book.  All books accepted by Boyle & Dalton undergo a complete production process, just as if they were accepted and published by a big five publisher.

“I was hooked. Each of Navarra’s ways was solidly argued and seemed to illustrate the very purpose of the work, and it did so brilliantly. The author’s writing style maintains a balance of informality and reason that makes reading The Joy of Argument both a pleasant and an enlightening experience.”
Jack Mangus, Readers’ Favorite

“A decidedly simple guide to argument, written with understated style.”
Kirkus Reviews

“With precision and clarity, Albert Navarra proves that argument does not need to be a damaging expression of conflict, but a powerful tool to express ourselves confidently, to achieve our goals, and to open up communication with others in a positive way. Navarra knows his subject and provides easy to understand, simple tools that anyone can benefit from.”

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.

For submission information, or to schedule a media interview, please contact Boyle & Dalton via email, or phone:

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.

-Dorothy Stoneman, Founder and CEO, YouthBuild USA

Dean talks about complicated issues like fatherlessness with honesty and purpose. He unflinchingly examines difficult aspects of his life with the clarity of acceptance and forgiveness. Sometimes heartbreaking, often inspiring, What If I Had a Father? is a powerful tool for those who are struggling to find meaningful leadership in their lives.
