Praise for Boob Tube:

"If you like Jackie Collins you will love this..."
- Bonnie Scotland (on

"This story was so addicting, I couldn't put it down. I gave it five stars, because when I wasn't reading this book, I was thinking about reading this book."
- S. Abraham (West Chester, PA, US) (on Amazon)

"I don't watch soaps, but that didn't keep me from enjoying Boob Tube. At first, I was amused by the ridiculous obsessions of the soap stars, but it is probably too close to the truth to be laughable. All the same, the authors made it entertaining and added an element of suspense that kept me reading when I should've been doing other things. Well written, great plot, spectacular ending!"
- Diane Adams (on

Welcome to Boob Tube, the novel that takes readers behind the scenes of daytime television soap operas.

When Actress Gina Martin lands a role on a top daytime soap, she soon finds herself immersed in a glamorous world of hidden secrets and dangerous temptations. Will Gina survive the Hollywood machine, or will it consume her?

Boob Tube introduces the reader to a cast of colorful characters and stories inspired by real events. As research for the novel, the authors conducted confidential, behind-the-scenes interviews with dozens of soap opera industry insiders (actors, agents, managers, hair & makeup professionals, fan club managers, writers, etc.) who dished stories stranger than fiction. The authors wove their stories into Boob Tube, a novel that some fans have alternately described as fun, eye-opening or deeply disturbing. After reading Boob Tube, you might never view celebrity the same way again.
