'Dancing With The Stars' J.R. Martinez Gets Book Deal

| by I Need My Fix

U.S. Army Veteran, soap opera actor and Season 13 winner of Dancing With The Stars' J.R. Martinez has landed a book deal. He apparently sold a memoir to Christine Pride at Hyperion. The book will be released in the Fall of 2012 and you can expect “triumphing over extraordinary obstacles through pure resilience'.

Martinez suffered major burns to his body when his Humvee drove over a land mine in Iraq. And while most people would lose hope having to deal with the recovery and disfiguration from the tragic accident, Martinez proved on DWTS that his outlook is every reason he is successful. His positivity was contagious!

Congratulations to all of the great things happening for him.
