Forget unicorns, we're obsessing over zombies thanks to Carrie Ryan's The Dark and Hollow Places and we want to see what YOU look like as a zombie! From now until May 6th to enter the ZOMBIE YOURSELF contest! What could you win? Well, the grand prize winner will receive signed copies of Carrie Ryan's zombie series AND a phone call from Carrie herself! How cool is that?
There are three ways to enter the contest. You can make yourself up to look like zombie, snap a pic and submit that, or if you're a little camera shy you can submit an illustration of what you'd look like as a zombie. Finally, if your both camera shy and aren't quite the Picasso some members are, you can always submit an essay describing to us what you'd look like if you were a zombie (in 200 words or less). Get creative buzzers because Carrie will be choosing the most memorable and creative submissions to win!
