My book was reviewed by a book review site yesterday. The reviewer had many kind words to say about my tale of accounting for terrorism (ha! Get it? See what I did there?) but the thing that tickled me most was that she said she could easily picture my book as a movie.
I have to admit, that sounds like it would be pretty cool. Seeing as how Hollywood seems to keep remaking old movies over and over again, I have to wonder whether I should just start throwing copies of my book over the gates of movie studios. It seems like they’re fairly desperate for new ideas.
I could do one of those author cameos in movie adaptations, you’d see me reading a copy of one of my own books in the corner behind the main characters. If they made a movie out of Blood Money, I could be sitting at the bar at The Mitre. That’d be pretty cool.
Sort of related but not really: Last week, someone messaged me on Facebook, asking me whether I’d consider casting her for the role of Anastasia in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. I can’t help but wonder what she thought would happen. Is she naive enough to think messaging the (wrong) author on Facebook would land her the lead role in a movie?
Hey, what do I know? Maybe that IS how actresses get cast in movies. You could fill my knowledge of how movies are made in a snack-sized Ziploc baggie.
