Mildred Made it To #1 in Indie Book Top Ten – profits going to animal rescue

I’m extremely grateful for all the attention the book is getting. The best news is my husband just wrote out a check to send to Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center, where all profits are going from sales of the book. It’s the first and only no-kill animal shelter in Ventura County, CA.

A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who spread the word, bought a book, wrote a review or supported this effort in any way.

Here’s to tons of wagging tails arriving in their forever homes.

TOP TEN INDIE BOOKS: May 4th

 

The Top 10 is based on the number of sales and click-throughs from INDIETRIBE to Amazon in the last week. Whilst every click through does not lead to a sale, it is certainly evidence of a high level of interest, so the 10 authors should be justly proud that their books are being noticed. We monitor click-throughs and do not count multiple click-throughs from one computer.

I suppose the best way of aiming for this Top 10 list is to make sure readers keep tripping over your book in our Book Store, Showcase, News Flashes, One-liners and Blogroll. Give your book the best chance you can.

To buy these books now, either click on the FRONT COVER to buy from Amazon.com or the TITLE to buy from Amazon.co.uk

IF YOU DO DECIDE TO BUY BOOKS, PLEASE BUY THEM WHILST YOU’RE LINKED THROUGH TO AMAZON FROM INDIETRIBE. THIS WILL HELP US TO ACCURATELY COMPILE THIS WEEKLY LIST.

Anyway, with no further ado, please welcome this week’s Top 10

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    Beautiful Juliette, and once again CONGRATULATION! What a magnificient accomplishment. Makes one proud to have, at least, an internet friendship with you dear lady. Maybe some day I will get back to California, where I lived in the Beverly Hills area for some 5 years, and we can get to meat in person. Jean-Jacques

    • I would love that. You and your wife would be more than welcome in our home. I grew up around that area, West LA, and went to UCLA so know the area well. We’d probably have a lot to chat about. And, thank you for your continued support. I really appreciate it. You’re a wonderful writer/poet and I really enjoy reading yours. Paulette🙂

  10. Angeline M says:

  13. That is so awesome. I have to believe God has also made that possible so the animals can be helped. He has made you one of His animal angels
    Blessings

    • Yes, the shelter had a lot of adoptions this last week which was wonderfully exciting that fury friends get to go to their forever homes and it also makes room for new ones to be rescued. I’m thrilled about that. And, thank you so much for your wonderful support here.🙂

  22. BeWithUs says:
