A New Opportunity at Amazon Studios: Create the Official Book Trail...

Murder by Moonlight is, in the words of author Vincent Zandri, a story about good versus evil in “a sleepy suburb that just might in fact be a hell on earth.” It’s the latest novel in the Dick Moonlight detective series, and the subject of Amazon Studios’ latest book trailer contest.

Amazon Studios is giving filmmakers the opportunity to create the official book trailer for Murder by Moonlight, from Amazon Publishing imprint Thomas & Mercer. The winner will receive $3,000. 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, Miller’s Crossing and Basic Instinct. Check out Zandri’s detailed synopsis of the book, plus notes on characters and tone, and learn more about Zandri and the Moonlight series at Amazon.com.

Some additional details about the contest:

  • 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.
  • A successful book trailer will convey the hard-boiled and thrilling atmosphere and tone of the book, while also communicating key plot points and/or introducing key characters.
