Director’s Cut by Janice Thompson…From Revell Publishers

The Director’s Cut

By Janice Thompson

About the Book and Praise for Janice Thompson

The one thing she can’t direct is her heart.

Tia Morales is used to calling the shots. She’s the director of the popular sitcom Stars Collide, and her life on the set is calculated and orderly. Well, most of the time. Life outside the studio is another matter. If only she could get other people to behave as well as her stars do! When she starts to have feelings for handsome cameraman Jason Harris–with whom she’s been butting heads for months–it’s enough to send a girl over the edge. Will she ever learn to let go and take life–and love–as it comes?

Full of the humor and crazy family dynamics Janice Thompson fans have come to love, this colorful story gives you an inside look at Hollywood and a healthy dose of romance.

If you want more of Bella, DJ, Brock Benson, and other favorite characters from Janice Thompson, you’ll love the Backstage Pass series.


This is a wonderful ending to a wonderful and fun series that I thoroughly enjoyed. Tia is a fun but determined young lady, well, she was just plain out a control freak. Being the director of the hit TV show Stars Collide wasn’t always easy and it wasn’t always easy to stay in control of things, which is what Tia thrived on.

Mia’s life took an interesting turn when she started falling for cameraman Jason. Does Jason have his work cut out for him trying to calm Tia down enough to enjoy life?

Knowing nothing about behind the scenes of a TV sitcom, I was fascinated buy the inside information I read in Director’s Cut. And I enjoyed getting to know both sides of the characters, the on and off screen. And Janice Thompson pulls the story together beautifully.

In the summertime it’s nice to find books that are a nice light, fast, fun and exciting read to take you away for a few days, and The Director’s Cut is just this read! Grab a copy to read and enjoy for yourself, or to take on vacation so you can have some nice ‘you’ time.

Praise for Janice Thompson

Hello, Hollywood!

“Thompson writes an enjoyable story that will make you want to adopt the Pappas family as your own.”–RT Book Reviews

“I love Janice’s writing and this book is no different. From start to finish, I enjoyed reading more about Athena and her life story. She is a character that I really connect with and enjoy.”–

“Janice provides an upbeat and engaging story and her readers will adore Hello, Hollywood!.”–

“Faith, romance, hilarious quotes about Greeks, Zeus the possessed dog, and an entertaining story will have you hungry for more Janice Thompson!”–

“This fun entry in Thompson’s comic Hollywood series (after Stars Collide) features humor, romance, and breezy dialog.”–Library Journal


Stars Collide

“An eclectic mix of the sort of zany characters Thompson is known for adds levity to this modern, star-studded romance. Glimpses into a Hollywood television studio and a series of lively comedic events make for a contemporary low-key inspirational romance that will appeal to readers who enjoyed the setting and humor of Rene Gutteridge’s Occupational Hazards series.”–Booklist

“A fun novel of love, paparazzi, and family, Stars Collide is a read that won’t easily be put down.”–Midwest Book Review
