One of the best books I’ve read! And a good day for dogs.

My book is continuing in the top 1% for sales in the Amazon Kindle Store and is #21 in top 100 for the literary-fiction-historical category. And it is now in the top 100 for the Literary fiction and Teen category. I’ve also been ranked by Amazon as the #58 top ranking author for two of my books, The Seven Year Dress and To Live Out loud, in the historical fiction category. And I made it to the top 100 (#87) in the literary fiction category.

I’m deeply grateful for everyone who has purchased, read, and taken the time to review my book. In the name of tolerance, a special thank you also to everyone who has spread the word to help promote this book.  All profits from my books go to help get dogs like Grayssa, Felina, Alden, Kissy Face, Juanita, and Vida (see below) out of kill shelters. Thus far in 2016, 96 dogs have been freed. Last year 148 dogs were freed.

AND please for everyone who’s purchased a book could I humbly ask you to write a review when you’ve completed the read. I have just found out that Amazon promotes and ranks books according to number of reviews in addition to sales. Every voice helps spread the word and that is an energy that can help a dog.

Paulette’s book brings the tragic truths of the Holocaust for us to learn or remember this most difficult time in history and for some of us, our lives. Like other readers having families affected, my mother and her family lost all. They were not Jews but we’re swept up by the Nazis and her large family was seperated. Paulette has the ability to make this horrific event an interesting historical read but with personalization. Thank you for taking the time to remind us of all who were so sadly impacted and to pay respect to the survivors and those not so fortunate.

Thank you for your endless generosity by donating proceeds of all your books to keep doggies out of shelters.

Well dear friend, I finally got things out of the way, far enough to make room to read your wonderful book, The Seven Year Dress, and what a book it is. Then again with all the success you have had with it to date, and still going strong, I anticipated it would reflect the quality of your talent I enjoyed so in your first three best selling successes, The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap. His Name Was Ben, and To Live Out Loud. From start to finish your writing style and ability to make your reader feel as though you are having a one on one with him or her, immediately captures our imagination, as to actually truly feel the tragedy of those terrible years. A deplorable time that would have a mad man said Hitler chose to impose on our Jewish fellow beings, such monstrous evil as the heinous racism these trapped people were made to suffer.
A fantastic book indeed Paulette. Thank you for writing it…!

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.
