Zombie competition for Higson fans

Puffin is offering Charlie Higson fans the chance to appear as a zombie in the trailer to promote the fourth book in his The Enemy series, The Sacrifice.

A competition is being held to choose extras for the trailer, written and directed by Higson, with filming set to take place on 30th June. Previous trailers for the books in the series have had combined viewings of more than 100,000 on YouTube, according to the publisher.

Would-be zombies must be over 16 and have to send a photo of themselves and 50 words, or less, describing why they would make a good zombie to puffin@uk.penguingroup.com by 26th June.

The Enemy series is set in and around London, taking place in a world where a mysterious disease has broken out affecting only grown-ups.
