Julio (my husband, for those who don't know), has been getting a lot of extra work on t.v. and movies down here in N.O.. He has managed to give copies of my book, Gumbo Justice, to the director of the Green Lantern, and to a few casting agents. Yesterday, he was an extra on the film Contraband, starring Mark Wahlberg, and he happened to be in a scene with him.
During a lull, Julio told him that his wife had a present for him and gave him a copy of my book. He even told him he would make a great Shep, the lead male in the novel. Later, Julio saw Mark Wahlberg sitting in the car (he was in the car for the scene, driving up to a boat), reading my book.
It was all pretty exciting. I said as long as he doesn't leave a bad review on Amazon, I consider it a win. Even if he doesn't like it, at least somebody might see him reading it and decide to purchase it.
Friday, Julio is shooting Looper with Bruce Willis....
