/, Tempest Cover, Un-Covered, Vortex Cover/UN-COVERED#5: Mark at Fashion Week in Italy + BIG Contest!

This contest is now closed–thanks to all who entered!

Mark Perini, Tempest Series Cover Model
Yes, there’s a contest in this post so read through it cause it’s pretty epic!!
Back by popular demand is another episode of Un-covered from Tempest (and now Vortex!) own Model Jackson, Mark Perini! Mark has been busy this summer, leaving his home base in NYC and traveling all the way to Italy for many many weeks…and my first thought when I heard this news was of course, “Omg! Jackson goes to Europe in Vortex!” coincidence? I think not.

It’s all part of a much bigger plan. Pretty soon, Mark will start time traveling.

First off, if you didn’t catch the big cover reveal of Vortex, check this out and if you’ve missed previous UN-COVERED posts, here they are:

Okay, on to Model Jackson in Italy for fashion week…just a side note, Mark told me this was his first trip to Europe so he has a ton of pictures of his own sightseeing quests. All the photos are courtesy of Mark Perini from Mark Perini incorporated and the captions are his notes and insights with none of my clever insertions. Like this one:

January 22nd, 1506, is the official date of birth of the Pontifical
Swiss Guard…

First off, Italian Fashion Week is held in Milan, Italy.
According to FashionTV.com this summer’s Men’s fashion week was full of “sex appeal and great fashion.” Designers included: Gucci, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and a whole bunch more but those are the only ones I’ve actually heard of so I left the others out.
me in a runway show for Jose Isaias
Also! Mark revealed to me that he got a chance to meet THE Giorgio Armani! Now that’s a name I’ve definitely heard of. Here’s the little interview we did via emails when he returned from across the pond.
ME: what it was like in Italy? What was the weather like and did you do most of your model work inside or outside?
MARK: It was 90 Degrees the whole time. But everything I shot was inside but Italians don’t love A/C so some places don’t use it at all, which was a bummer.
photo of me on set at a shoot in Italy
ME: Were all the people you were working with Italian? How did you communicate?
MARK: Everyone loved New York so everyone wanted to practice English! Or at least try to. 
ME: Favorite food in Italy?
MARK: Pasta Carbonara from Rome
View from the top of Duomo, overlooking the city of Milan. 
ME: Any tips for those vacationing or traveling to Italy for whatever reason? Or in my case, fantasizing about it.
MARK: Best tips for Italy in the summer are bring comfortable shoes your going to be walking a lot. Wearing shorts in Italy makes you a tourist even if it’s scorching outside. Try all the food Italy has to offer I never had a bad meal and I was there for a month.
The town of Brunate also known as the “Balcony of the Alps”  is apart of Como Lake
Me: And, of course I have to ask, what do you think of the Vortex cover??!!

MARK: I really love the new cover it came out amazing. I feel like James Bond.

Look! I found Tempest in an Italian Bookstore!

And last but not least, THE CONTEST! 
PRIZE: Advanced Reader’s Copy (ARC) of Vortex signed by BOTH myself AND Mark Perini! And a Hardcover of TEMPEST signed by BOTH myself AND Mark Perini! Yes, that’s right, it a big prize! Whoot! Signed book marks will also be thrown in for fun!

    Loved Tempest, not the ending. Kleenex was my friend. I would keel over if I got an ARC of Vortex. And I like that this book is from the male POV. It's refreshing. Not many others do it, or can pull it off.

    Aww this is such a fun post! I LOVE reading about model's real life. It always amazes me that they have such fabulous life, yet they are still down-to-eart! Mark is gorgeous, I can't wait to picture him as Jackson when I read your books! x) I hope if they ever turned your book into a movie, Julie, they would choose Mark to play Jackson! πŸ˜‰

    Anyway, thank you for the amazing giveaway, Julie! πŸ™‚ I'm hoping to see more of this lovely posts in the future! <3

    I really enjoy the Un-Covered posts! And Mark is such a delight, he's so kind. And the covers are seriously the best. I wanna win a copy because Tempest isn't sold yet in the Philippines and I want it for my shelf. <3 Thanks for the giveaway! πŸ˜€

    I'm a librarian, and TEMPEST has been the EASIEST book to get people to borrow. First off, it's FUN. Second, it doesn't time travel really well. And third, male narrator! Yes, it's been a favorite, and i'm very excited for the sequel.

    What I got from that interview: Italia is hot, the food is great and never wear shorts XD Nice tips! o

    I'm loving this posts, Mark sounds like a really nice guy =)

    So I totally didn't know, even though I lived in Italy for two years when I was in elementary school, that you're automatically a tourist if you wear shorts!
    Good to know.

    Great giveaway!
