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.

 ***EXCLUSIVE CONTENT***

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. ;-)

  1. No revenge will NOT make it better. Kill them with kindness is the best way to go ;) Revenge can definitely go too far, especially if you are really angry!

    1. Sam definitely learned a lesson a the hard way in how revenge could go too far......

  3. I think seeking revenge is okay - let them have a taste of their own medicine! But of course, it can get out of hand which is never a good idea.

    1. Sam definitely tried to give Jessica a "taste of her own medicine"...until she learned it could definitely get out of hand..fast.

  4. i don't think revenge is the way to go. it can get totally out of hand & can get yourself into more trouble than it is worth. i believe that Karma will get those who wrong others. but that is just my opinion.

    1. So very true. Unfortunately, Sam had to learn this lesson the hard way.

  5. I don't think revenge is okay because it just becomes a domino effect. It can go too far and lead to more problems. It is better to walk away or kill with kindness.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm not a fan of revenge so to speak but Karma can come as often as she wants.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I believe in Karma, I think if someone has done something bad to you, you don't need to seek revenge because the universe will eventually punish that person. it's not your job to punish people, it's Karma's job.

    1. Agreed. It can go very, very wrong. As Sam learns... =)

  8. I think it's really easy for revenge to go way too far, and for that reason I'm not a big fan of it :)

    1. Ohhh..this is sooo true..and too bad Sam learns this lesson the hard way in The Society.... ;-)

  9. I feel like you could watch any episode of Vampire Diaries and see how quickly revenge can go horribly wrong. ...granted, all of that revenge involves supernatural creatures, so... take that with a grain of salt.

    1. It can definitely go horribly wrong! And while The Society doesn't have any supernatural creatures (well, unless you count Jessica haha) Sam still learns it can still get way out of hand...fast!

  10. I know revenge is often tempting and I will admit to entertaining revenge fantasies myself. But I think it should stay there, in fantasies, because there are so many ways it can go wrong and you can unintentionally hurt innocent people in the process.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't think revenge is ever the right thing but sometimes it feels good. :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. revenge is okay depending on its severity for example you can safely carry out a prank as revenge for a prior prank but nothing too serious.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Revenge is alright as long as it doesn't cause serious or permanent impacts.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Revenge is alright as long as it doesn't cause serious or permanent impacts.

  15. I don't think revenge can be justified in normal situations but if someone is pushed to their limits then it I guess it's justified.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Revenge, I believe, is never really okay. However, it feels good at times.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Revenge is okay to a small extent, but more often than not, it shouldn't be considered because it definitely can go too far.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah, I don't think revenge is very healthy. I can definitely understand the desire for it, but overall it really doesn't help anything.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Mmm... as tempting as it is it's not really okay

    ReplyDelete
  20. Revenge is not healthy and it can get really far. It's sad really, because sometimes bullies don't understand that ignoring them is not an invitation to behave even worse. I do understand why some people would try to get revenge, because it would make them feel like they "did" something to stop it and they didn't just take the bullying. Again, it is not a healthy thing to do.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think the need to feel like you should take revenge is normal and can be a bit healthy to focus your anger or ill feelings, but I don't think ever acting on it is a good thing, for you or the person you want revenge on.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I honestly believe that revenge is dangerous and hurtful any way you look at it. It may feel good at the time you do it, but in the end there will always be the feeling of doubt and guilt at jumping to a reaction.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Revenge should always be a last resort. It almost always backfires...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I do not like taking revenge out on someone and yes, it usually goes too far and really can hurt people.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I definitely think it could go too far... so I don't know whether it's "okay," per se.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I once sought revenge to my ex-boyfriend. It's evil, I know, but it felt SOOO good! But of course there should be a limitation to it. Just like that famous declamation piece said: Vengeance is not ours, it's God's

    ReplyDelete
  27. I think revenge should never be used. It doesn't truly make anyone feel better, because in the long run, you're going to feel guilty about it. It only hurts people, including yourself.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't believe that revenge is ever the right answer. And if someone chooses to seek revenge, it can absolutely go too far and it can get there very quickly. I can understand the desire for revenge, though. Most definitely!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Revenge is a dangerous thing. It's better to take the high road.

    ReplyDelete
  30. No, getting revenge does not solve anything

  31. Thank you so much for this lovely giveaway! I made a tiny mistake on the rafflecopter widget- I entered my Goodreads profile link instead of the one to my TBR. Here's my TBR link that shows The Society in it- https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/36220461?page=6&shelf=to-read Thanks again :))

  32. It might make me a bad person but I'm a big revenge person, most of the time people do take it way too far though

    ReplyDelete
  33. Seeking revenge can definitely be tempting and sometimes it's easy to think people really deserve it. But it can go wrong so quickly, so no, I don't think revenge is ever the right answer. Usually it just makes one as bad as the person their seeking revenge against.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    I don't think revenge is ever the answer. It might feel good at the moment itself, but I'm fairly certain that you'd regret it later. And it definitely can go too far.

    ReplyDelete
  35. i don't believe revenge is the answer but hey they wouldn't have made the saying revenge is a dish best served cold if everyone felt the same way. i don't know if i would wait that long though. i do think it can go to far.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks for the giveaway! Revenge is always fun... when you're reading fiction. I mean, just watching someone get bullied for 100+ pages would just get old. And frustrating :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Revenge is sometimes necessary but can go too far.

    ReplyDelete
  38. that's a tough question. there's no doubt there are times when some sort of revenge can be justified or make you feel better but most of the time it tends to get carried away!

    thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I think revenge is a slow process and have karma's help, sekeing to equalize thins is fine... go overdrive no so much, nobody and nothing are important enough to loose youself over

    ReplyDelete
  40. That is a good question. I believe revenge might help you feel better, but how long is it going to last? By taking revenge you'll constantly going to remember the bad things that they did to you and that's going to make you feel even more sad. I believe you should defend yourself and probably take a little revenge and the rest, just let time and karma take the revenge for you. :3

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think that revenge hurts the person who commits the revenge more than the person who is on the receiving end in the long term. So while I believe in standing up for yourself, I don't believe in revenge.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Revenge simply means that the person you're seeking it out on is still claiming victory in your head. Move on.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I believe seeking revenge is usually not the answer for everything because innocent people might get hurt, especially family and friends. Plus, it could make a person change who they are inside and consume them. There are times in which it could go too far and it would be too late for the revenge seeker to take it back.
