It's my Book Trailer Thursday, and I'm also blogging at Gloria Richard's at this link. We're discussing the allure of the blog giveaway. So, let me know what you think of the videos below and then head over to Gloria's and tell us what you think about giveaways.
I've read lots of YA in 2011 and this is one that I thought was done very well. It's a thought-provoking tale about suicide and the lives of teenagers. I'm not giving you the blurb. The trailer below does an excellent job with that. Here's a fan-made trailer for Jay Asher's 13 Reasons Why. I find that there are some really good trailers made by students for school assignments. There is a misspelled word and sometimes the words blend with the background, but overall I think it's terrific. Maybe I should find a teenager for my next book trailer.
I found this interesting interview with Jay Asher. I think that authors could video similar interviews and post for readers.
