Welcome to the Mechanical Failure Mad Libs contest! In case you don't know, Joe is actually a voice actor as well as an author, most notably known as the voice of Fox McCloud in Nintendo's STAR FOX ZERO: THE BATTLE BEGINS. 

You might also have heard him interrupt your Pandora playlist and wanted to punch him. You might have heard him in Oxenfree on the XBox and thought he was super creepy. Now, you can hear him narrate a commercial or trailer of your choice, in celebration of his upcoming debut novel, MECHANICAL FAILURE! To complete your entry, please fill out the form below just like a real live Mad Lib. 

Here are the rules: prizes will be awarded to the funniest entry in each of the two categories. You may only enter EITHER the Infomercial or the Trailer category unless you tweet @JoeZieja with a screenshot of your MECHANICAL FAILURE pre order with the #MechanicalFailure hashtag. Then you get TWO entries!

Winners will receive the following:

1st Place: Signed hardback copy of MECHANICAL FAILURE and I will professionally narrate your voicemail message in any requested style or character in my repertoire. You write the script!

2nd Place: My literary agent, Sam Morgan, will read and critique a short excerpt of one of your novels. If you don't write, he will critique a picture of your face. If you don't have a face, I will professionally narrate your voicemail message in any requested style or character in my repertoire. 

3rd Place: A free e-book of MECHANICAL FAILURE to read or give as a gift, and I will professionally narrate your failure to achieve first or second place. 

Have fun!

This is 1. MALE OR FEMALE NAME, the local 2. WORST JOB IN THE WORLD. He's had enough of being the lowest ranking 3. OBSCURE SPORT player in town.

But when 4. PRETENTIOUS WHITE MALE NAME is suddenly struck with 5. TERRIBLE ILLNESS OR INJURY, he'll finally get his chance to stand on the podium. 

Only one thing stands in the way (record scratch) - his 6. THING YOU HIDE UNDER YOUR BED.

Now, to make it to the top, he'll have to contend with 7. ANIMAL, FOOD BORNE ILLNESS, and a whole lot of 8. SOMETHING YOU SHOULD NOT BRING TO A HOLIDAY WORK PARTY.
