Book Blog Tour: Hello Hollywood! by Janice Thompson

Hello Hollywood takes you onto the set of Stars Collide, a sitcom that is going through a little bit of a dry spell and the people in charge of the production of the show want to find ways to increase its ratings. Athena Pappas is the head writer and is backed by a very dependable and creative writing team. When Stephen Cosse is added to their team Athena gets anxious about what the future holds for her; will she lose her job if Stephen is a better writer than her or is she too valuable of a writer for their agency? To top it off, Stephen finds a way into her life outside of the studio and she wonders if that will interfere with their work relationship.

Athena seemed to be in a constant battle in her mind about whether Stephen could be trusted or not and I liked how she often thought things through before speaking to him about this. When the Pappas family inherits a dog from one of their family members he adds a special twist that brings much humor to this story. I also liked reading about what goes on behind-the-scenes with creating a television show, although I am sure that each sitcom has their own uniqueness to how they write and create their episodes. Most importantly, the tenderheartedness of one Greek family allowing another to come alongside them during various points of this story was inspiring to me.

This book can reach out to a lot of people such as people in the television industry, people who are interested in reading about what goes on behind-the-scenes in the television industry, people who like to read novels about sitcoms, and people who like animals.

Available September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell for this review.
