REVIEW: What I Really Want to Do is Direct by Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout
Dear Yvonne Collins and Sandy Rideout
Who knew that a focus puller was so important to a movie? Not moi, I assure you. But now I do and I loved learning about it in “What I Really Want to Do is Direct.” Though told in 1st person (after all, it is Chick Lit and that’s almost mandatory), you give us lots of clues about the other characters and Roxanne is so honest about herself that I always felt I knew everything about them.
The script detail inserts are a great way to convey just how hard it is to bring the world the latest alien monster, big budget, loaded up on pyrotechnics movie for our local cineplex. And in true Chick Lit fashion our heroine proves herself to her boss, proves that the bimbo who was trying to get her job is an idiot and still manages to get her man at the end. B
This book can be purchased at Amazon. No ebook format.
I liked the look of the book but wasn’t ready to take the plunge. I think this is a loosely related series of books, isn’t it? Have you read any others?
The main character of “Speechless” is a secondary character in “Direct.” I haven’t looked anything up on Amazon yet so I’m not sure which came first but I do plan on getting “Speechless.”
Ah! 2 Ja(y)nes! lol I was wondering why you (Jane) left the first comment on your own post. lol
I have both books, haven’t read either yet, but Speechless definitely came first. I didn’t realize they were connected though.
There are THREE Ja[y]nes: Jay, Jane and Jayne. It reminds me of that book series I read when I was a kid. I think it’s called Five Marys? OK, I’m being a dork here. *cough* Excuse me. Please, carry on.
I would recruit Jay to post here and we can give “J” type names out to anyone who wants to write letters to authors who will never read them!
Jaili is I! :D
Thanks for the nice review of our book!
SPEECHLESS did come first. Hope you’ll enjoy it, too.
We also have a young adult series, you might enjoy. The first book is INTRODUCING VIVIEN LEIGH REID: DAUGHTER OF THE DIVA.
