The Zee Brothers Prank Call Promo!

Want to have some fun and win some cool prizes?
We want you to prank call The Zee Brothers!

Who are The Zee Brothers?


Jonah & Judas are two brothers in the Zombie Extermination business. Just like any other exterminators, they get phone calls from prospective clients and go out and do inspections to determine what needs to be done.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the pests, this usually turns into a bloody mess in a hurry. Most often, where Jonah & Judas are concerned, it’s generally pretty funny as well.

While the brothers are serious about what they do, there is one night a year where they will not answer their phone. You see, Jonah & Judas get a lot of prank calls to their Zombie Exterminators phone #, but it’s the worst on Halloween night.

That’s the one night a year when people think it’s funniest to harass them. They don’t answer the phone and they don’t go out. All those costumes and people in zombie make-up are a recipe for disaster for guys ready to shoot anything that’s dead but still moving, so they just stay home and let the phone ring.

The messages range from people making fun of zombie extermination, people pretending they are being attacked, to people saying zombies aren’t real. The list goes on and on. The next morning they nurse their hangovers and listen to the Halloween madness.

That’s where you come in!

We want you to call and leave your craziest, zaniest message about zombies or zombie exterminators to Jonah & Judas. Pretend you’re a potential client or just be a funny prankster.

What’s in it for you?
Your call could be featured in The Zee Brothers Vol.3 both as text in the book and possibly even the audio from your call in the audiobook. We’ll also broadcast some of our favorites across our social media, bringing you untold fame… no fortune, but we promise as much fame as your humor creates.

PRIZES!
The top 3 prank callers will all win signed copies of The Zee Brothers Books 1-3! And the contents of your call will likely be featured in book 3.

(Prizes will be sent out after the release of book 3 mid-2018)

Other prizes may include posters, prints, bookmarks, apparel and more.

How do you participate?
Call the Grivante Press offices at 208-352-2102 and at the beep, pretend you are leaving a message for Jonah & Judas. You are more likely to win if you make us laugh, good luck!

Contest Rules:
Must be 18 Years Old at the time of the phone call.

After you’ve left your message, make sure and pause a moment and then give your call back number, name and an email address so that we can get in touch with you if you win.

Winners will be chosen by 1/31/18.

CONTEST ENTRY PERIOD ENDS 1/1/18

How a dog helped keep the zombie apocalypse at bay!

The Zee Brothers have the unique and adrenaline inducing vocation of Zombie Exterminators. Their job description seems pretty straight forward; Respond to reports of zombie sightings and outbreaks, exterminate and keep the zombie apocalypse from happening. Simple enough right? All you need are big guns, the proper permits and a dog?

In The Zee Brothers : Curse of the Zombie Omelet, the brothers end up near extermination themselves when an ancient indian curse unleashes a plague of undead on the community of Winter Oaks.

Luckily for them, they meet the beautiful and tough as nails JJ as well as her lovable Pekingese, Xanadu, whose adoration for his mistress is as deep as the mystery surrounding his origin and abilities.

Xanadu is always right by her side, except on the occasions that she chooses to toss him into the air when they are about to be over-run by a zombie horde, bringing the zombies to a stop and buying the trio the sliver of time they need to try and survive!

Xanadu’s special abilities do more than just stop the zombies in their tracks, he also…well, wait, we can’t give away all of his secrets. You’ll have to come along for the ride and find out for yourself!

The Zee Brothers : Zombie Exterminators is a story about zombies, but also about a mysterious dog with powers beyond comprehension, a pair of brothers with a job to do and a woman named JJ who loves them all.

Life as a zombie!

Living your passion presents interesting opportunities. This weekend, we went to Seattle to promote my zombie book series at Crypticon, a 3-day horror convention. It’s a very unique event that fills the halls of the convention center with monsters and mayhem of all kinds. There are people in costumes from all sorts of horror movies. Freddy, Jason, vampires, zombies, teletubbies, everything your nightmares can imagine you’ll find it there. Despite the “horror” theme, the people are all friendly, they are doing what they love and having fun doing it and best of all, celebrating it with others who like the same things.

We’ve done a few of these conventions now and each time we meet and connect with a lot of people, sell some books and take in the experience. This time around, I decided to take things to the fullest and have a little fun with one of the jokes in my book, that I, the author, was infected and turned into a zombie(good luck waiting on the sequels). I enlisted the help of Tim Peirson of Cast of Thousands Studios in Tacoma, WA to come in and make me up. The results were an astounding transformation that was not only fun to watch unfold but even funner to be.  Make-up assist and photo’s by Jennifer Jensen!

I was transformed from mild mannered author to flesh eating, brain chomping zombie writing guy. What a treat it was to become part of the eclectic show all around us. I got to scare people, make them laugh, freak them out and be part of the experience with them. I posed for pictures, pretending to eat or chase people, I got to growl and groan like a hungry zombie in their ears, while they smiled for their selfies.

What a fun day. I hope that you got to do something equally as fun and cool with your weekend.
