I have never read a more riveting story in my life… An inside look at hell

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  Cesar, Jensen, Gilbert, Mello, Meeko, Munchkin, and Hardee (see below) out of kill shelters. Thus far in 2016, 112 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.

The Seven Year Dress was a great book. I don’t know how she could have survived her like in the concentration camp and losing her family and best friend.

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.

    • It’s my pleasure to help the dogs. And I work along side of a group of wonderful compassionate animal loving friends who also help with pledges, fosters, their rescue groups, and those kind enough to adopt a dog, or two, or more. Your pawkisses add to this wonderful energy. Many pawkisses right back to you. 🙂 ❤
