The Postcard Post -- Jay


Exactly two months from today, my book comes out. And I really want you to read it, but not for my sake. See, Robin and Eve really wanna know what you think about it...and I really care about their happiness. So I'd like to mail you a postcard to remind you when Thirteen Reasons Why becomes available.

The back of the postcard is pictured above, but your copy will be personalized with your very own address. The front of the postcard depicts the cover of my book, which will be autographed (probably by me) using a permanent marker. Just e-mail your name and address to RobinJayEve{at}aol.com and I'll send you a postcard, timed to arrive exactly two months from today!

Robin and Eve thank you.

- Jay

Can I get a signed copy? I mean, I'll buy it and everything, but I want your assurance that you'll write something pithy in my copy. Lamy

Hey Jay,

That's cool! The countdown begins.

You know my address. Can you send Chandler and me one?

Disco Mermaids said...

I can do pithy...now that I've looked it up.

Your postcards are already addressed!

I don't need a reminder, I already read it:

But the postcard sure looks good. And you sure have a great marketing team behind you!

Best of luck,

Hello Jay,
If your marketing budget allows for a stamp to India, sure, I'd love to receive the postcard. But you may want to give yourself a good two weeks for the card to reach me :) The Indian Post can be... capricious ?

i just finished reading 13 reasons less than an hour ago and i can still hardly take a deep breath. it is a great book. i am a bookseller at Borders Books and the merchandising supervisor. we get advance read copies and proofs of unpublished books and i usually read the kids books because i was the kids clerk here for 6 years before i moved into management. the book reminded me of the way i felt after reading Robert Cormier's Rag and Bones, which was also a very intense read. it is , i think, one of the 10 most important books for teens (and parents) to read. This book is probably the most precise picture of a suicidal teen i have ever read. it is just so well written, from the way the characters are developed right up to the last "slow breath of air." this book pulls us along on Clay's journey as he grows and learns and listens, and we change as he changes. thank you so much. we will definitely be promoting this book in october. thanks again
