Free Stuff

There's going to be a huge, multi-author contest for free goodies this Halloween. Check out the prizes and contributors at DarkDivaReviews. Yes, I'm among them. I'm in excellent company, don't you agree?

For my part, one winner will receive a free download of any current title available as of October 31st (which will include: Claimed by Darkness) as well as a two pack prize of perfume oils I had designed for me. There's a story behind that and I'll get to it in a second, but "Mia" and "Mia Afterdark" in roll-on application viles will be sent to the winner. Be sure to check out the contest which will begin October 1st.

The story: All perfumes go sweet on me. Sickeningly so and most fragrances make me sneeze. Soap and shampoo have always been my only scent, yet my nieces love the scent of vanilla in my hair. I do also. I had an internet scent wizard create a combination of my favorites using my specified high notes, low notes, and base notes (I'm an instinctive cooker and have an excellent feel for what works together) which she did. I purchased a ready made scent by the perfumer as well.

I loved my fragrance and wear it daily. My nieces and selected males I allow close enough, find reasons to get close for a sniff. I find it amusing actually. One day, I mixed the designed scent with the purchased scent and discovered that I loved it also. I promptly had the perfumer mix my scent to hers and found the perfect percentage to create a new one. Hence "Mia", my regular usage perfumed oil, and "Mia Afterdark" for those naughty sexy moments when I'm still me, just amped up for play.

Both fragrances will be included as part of the winning prize. I hope you like them as much as I do. And for those interested, the perfumer has agreed to make both scents available to others upon request as part of an "exclusive" collection. More on that later. If you order, simply request "Mia" or "Mia Afterdark" in the notes portion of the purchase to identify the scents you like.

Contest sounds great.
Your own specially made perfume scent...actually two of them? How wonderful!

What a fun idea and the prizes...

How neat that you have two perfume scents made just for you.

Thanx! The contest should be crazy-fun. The scents happened kind of by accident. When I tried to come up with something for the contest that was different, I decided this might be a unique offering.
