Profits from my books have helped free 161 dogs from kill shelters

My book The Seven Year Dress is continuing to rank in the top 100 best sellers in the kindle bookstore in the literary-fiction-historical, literary fiction, and the young adult categories. I’ve also been ranked by Amazon as top ranking author for two of my books, The Seven Year Dress and To Live Out loud, in the historical fiction category and the Teen/Young Adult category. And  in the literary fiction category for The Seven Year Dress. See photos below.

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 Maggie, Latte, Rocky, Sam, Pickels, Caramel, Peter Pan, Dora, Calypso and sisters Jackie and Mabeline (see below) out of kill shelters. Thus far in 2016, 161 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.

I could not put this book down. It was a real page turner. So sad. Love for my sister Rhonda Lute to read this book.

I enjoyed this book even though unusually through my own circumstances I had to endure a break in its reading. The story is well told, the writing crisp and engaging. There were for my liking, too many historical reference points and I think the story could have survived well without them and subsequently flowed more freely. For me this distracted a little from the flow of the book but perhaps as someone familiar with the history of the period this could be something that is peculiar to me. It is a difficult tale for sure and by that I mean the subject matter, with a unique approach to a terrible period in history that is handled quite well. Overall I can recommend this one. As always my priority is a good story and a book that keeps me engaged and here Paulette Mahurin has delivered in spades. A talented writer with more to come I am sure. Pick it up.

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.
