Julie Eshbaugh - Author

Today, I am thrilled to be hosting Julie Eshbaugh on my website for the YA Scavenger Hunt! Julie now lives in Philadelphia after having called Utah, France, and New York City hone. Early on, Julie focused her artistic energies on filmmaking and online video. She made two short films and then spent several years producing videos series for teens which received several honors from the Webby Awards. Creating videos for teens led to writing novels for teens, and Julie has never looked back. IVORY AND BONE is her debut novel.
You can learn more about her writing escapades on Twitter @JulieEshbaugh and on her website, www.julieeshbaugh.com.

Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.

 As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.


IVORY AND BONE looks absolutely amazing, and Julie was kind enough to share some images that she used for inspiration during her writing process as well as the link to her Pinterest board so you could check out even more behind the curtain wonders. How cool is that? So sit back, have a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy. If you are like me, it might be 19 cups of coffee. ;-) 


And don't forget to enter the contest by April 3, 2016 for a chance to win a ton of books by me, Jodie Andrefski, and more! To keep going on your quest for the hunt, you need to check out the next fabulous author,  Marissa Kennerson.  Thanks for playing, and happy hunting!!
