Halloween Contest!

It's one day late! Sorry, sorry, for those of you who were eagerly awaiting this announcement.

Welcome to my 100th blog post over here at Love Between The Pages! Can you believe it? I can't. Who knew I had that much to say?

To celebrate both this milestone post and the Vegas Magic series out at Cobblestone Press right now, I'm holding a contest.

But first, the books!

The Vegas Magic series is set in, no surprise, Las Vegas and centers on the Crypt casino on Halloween night. What could go wrong at a party where the creatures of the night are free to strut their stuff? A dangerous question to ask.

Playing with cards was never this much fun. Stacking the Deck is coming Friday!

Want to know what you could win?

-Three imps (sample vials) of Halloween/Samhain-themed perfume from BPAL in the following scents:
  * Samhain: Truly the scent of autumn itself -- damp woods, fir needle, and black patchouli with the gentlest touches of warm pumpkin, clove, nutmeg, allspice, sweet red apple and mullein.

  * Dia De Los Muertos: A joyous celebration of La Catarina, La Flaca, La Muerte… Glorious, Beautiful Death. In Mexico, death is not something to be feared or hated; She is embraced, loved, and adored. La Muerte is fĂȘted, as the celebrant "…chases after it, mocks it, courts it, hugs it, sleeps with it; it is his favorite plaything and his most lasting love." This is a Mexican paean to La Huesuda: dry, crackling leaves, the incense smoke of altars honoring Death and the Dead, funeral bouquets, the candies, chocolates, foods and tobacco of the ofrenda, amaranth, sweet cactus blossom and desert cereus.

  * Sugar Skull: Vibrant with the joy and sweetness of life in death! A blend of five sugars, lightly dusted with candied fruits.

-Two scented wax melts from Dark Candles in the following scents:
  * Autumn Harvest: Spicy blend of cinnamon bark and clove bud on a dry down of musk.

  * Jack O'Latte: Pumpkin Spice flavored Latte, the perfect coffee-inspired scent to carry you into the fall season.

-A $5 Gift Certificate good for purchase of any book at Cobblestone Press

How do you win? Simple! From October 20th to 5pm PST October 31st, just email me with the answer to this question: If you were stuck in a casino full of monsters on Halloween night, which of the Vegas Magic heroes would want to keep you company? Jake, Grant, or Alec?

I'll choose a winner Halloween eve! Good luck!
