San Jose, CA—It's not "American Idol," but it's all in good fun, and with zombies making a comeback, it's a chance for zombie fans with a fair singing voice to strut—or shamble—their stuff. Damnation Books is looking for someone to sing the theme song for the video trailer for I Left My Brains in San Francisco by Karina Fabian.
I Left My Brains in San Francisco is the second novel in the Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator series. Neeta Lyffe is an exterminator with an unusual specialization—destroying zombies, the latest and most dangerous of the world's household pests. The first book in the series, Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator, won the 2011 Global eBooks award for horror and was an eFestival of Words runner-up. In the second book, Neeta takes on a hoard of zombiefied environmental terrorists targeting the Bay Area.
Fabian, who writes comedic horror, wrote the theme song using music by Kevin MacLeod on http://incompetech.com. The details of the contest, plus the music, lyrics, and a demo of Karina Fabian singing the song can be found at http://fabianspace.blogspot.com/p/are-you-next-zombie-idol.html. Contestants need to create their best interpretation of the song and post it in the comments section on YouTube, or post a link in the comments section of the blog.
Entries will be judged on singing quality, and the winner must produce an .mp3 or .wav file in order to receive the grand prize, including both books, a Napalm Sticks to Zombies t-shirt and a $25 gift certificate. One in ten entries will also receive a copy of I Left My Brains in San Francisco, and especially creative video entries may receive prizes as well.
The contest runs until November 1st, with the winners posted by November 15.
