Are You Paying Attention, Hollywood?

Here are a couple more of my favorite reader-created book trailers for Thirteen Reasons Why.





As you can see, it's all about selecting the right images.

Actually, maybe it's about selecting the right music.

Or editing! Maybe it's about the editing.

Well, whatever it's about...I like 'em!

Oh. Wow. These are amazing. I want to make a comment that does justice to these, but I just can't. Perfect song choices and images for both of them.

I loved them both. It's like a soft version and a hard version only they both have the same impact.

Nicely done.

I vote for the b&w one. Interesting new covers for 13RW! The US cover is still the best.

Our new principal read the article about your visit. He is a Longview native and follows what goes on in LV.

I read the galley of Angry Management by CC. In fact, he had it bound and signed it. You will really like the 3 novellas.

It is so cool and inspiring and absolutely amazing to know people cared enough about 13RW to create their own works of art based on it. It just boggles my mind every time I see a new trailer posted.

And I can't wait to see what you do next, Genoveva!

Joan, I just saw Angry Management in the bookstore today. I am so glad to see that the new stories use some of my favorite characters from his earlier books!

I love the second one. Never Too Late by Three Dyas Grace was a good choice for it.

I saw one of Genoveva's other versions on YouTube, today. Genoveva you are doing fantastic artwork.

I want to say to Jay that I am in awe of how your book is such a positive, creative influence to so many. I would have never have dreamed this.

Okay, i am 58 years old. I was in the library on July 2nd looking for a book. I picked up 13RW, never heard of it before, saw a few words on the jacket 'suspense' being one of them and I checked it out. Not until I got home did I notice 'suicide'. I read the book in two days and I hope beyond hope there is a movie made (altho I would like to see more kids read). Without saying much more; Jay, inspite of my age, I related to this book. I remember my high school days well. I believe this is not just for teens.

Thanks for writing this book.

Hello Jay Asher,

no Trailer, but a Videoreview from me. Of course only in german, because this is the country I come from. But perhaps you enjoy it! ;-)

Wanna take a look?
