More from John

I wrote the book as a Christian response to a well-known actor starring in a popular television show reboot. I thought the topic would be an interesting fictional exploration what actors and fans should consider when a TV show seems to compromise an actor’s values.


I chose the Dallas metroplex as the main setting because I have visited the area several times. As a child in the early 1980s, I remember watching two Dallas TV stations on cable TV.


I have often wondered how hard it would be to be an actor/actress in Hollywood as a Christian. There must be tremendous pressure to not be tempted by fame or money and fall into the secular ideas of acceptable themes in movies and shows. Having to be surrounded by the evils that slip into this industry I was intrigued by this book. 

When a show gets rebooted, Celeste and  Staci find themselves fighting against an enemy that wants to destroy  their reputation. Mike joins with them to try to preserve their Christian values but they find themselves in a battle where evil preys on their beliefs. As the series plays on television, the gossip starts and their children see it as well. How do you explain to your child that the horrible words you spoke on screen was all an act? I think it would be hard to tell your child one thing, then do the opposite. This was going to be a battle of spiritual warfare and many prayers to overcome this situation. 

The author delivers a realistic look at what happens when Christian actors/actresses compromise themselves in the  industry. The show displays alcohol use, cursing, and other things that cause their church to question their standing in the community. With threats, mysterious texts and lies going on the story takes a dark look at what could happen when someone comprises their faith. 

I did appreciate the scriptures that continued throughout the story and how the main characters wanted to repent and ask forgiveness. It was sad to see people judge them and turn their backs on them. Overall a nice example of what could happen when you compromise your faith for fame and pride. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
