One finalist will receive a $500 Amazon gift card and Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and five runners up will receive copies of the book signed by the author.

Zandri describes the tone of his work as dark and atmospheric, in the spirit of movies like Se7en, Millerís Crossing and Basic Instinct. Learn more about Zandri and the Moonlight Rising at Amazon.com.

The deadline for entry is Jan. 7, 2013.
Trailers should be between 30 seconds and 90 seconds long.
Entries can employ live action, animation, or even a text-driven approach.

Hmm Not sure why the Amazon links aren't working but it is Studios.Amazon.Com/contests/36

Interesting, this forum has an auot-change mod on it. This normally only happens when people link "2" links in on for some marketing reason. I will look into this asap
