If I Could Be Anyone I'd Be... Talli Roland's Launch Party!

It's release day for Talli Roland's Watching Willow Watts!

Talli's hosting an online 'If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be...' party!

"Come dressed as that one person you've always admired, longed to impersonate, or just plain envied. Now is your chance to make your superhero, film-star, or Rock God fantasies comes true (okay, maybe not all your fantasies...). If you have a blog and you'd like to take part, all you need to do is post a photo of your chosen one (dead or alive) along with an explanation why you've picked that person."

Here's my dilemma. I don't really want to impersonate or be anyone else. I'd love to dress up in all kinds of period costumes, like a gown from Renaissance Italy or some sort of elaborate Restoration England affair. But I couldn't even put on a toga properly at Colchester Castle a couple of weeks ago:


I'll hide behind my character, Rosa, from Out of the Water. Just came across this photo in a collection that landed in my email a while back. I'd love to have someone dress me up and make up my face so I could go to a party looking like this:


But never mind me, let's talk about Willow!


Talk about chick lit at its best!

I don't usually read this genre, but I've been very lucky in the ones I do read. They've always:

a) been British; and

b) come at just the right moment, when I'm on vacation or simply need a book to unwind with.

Who can forget Carole Matthews' Let's Meet on Platform 8 or Claire Calman's Love Is A Four Letter Word?

And now I've got a new favourite - Watching Willow Watts by Talli Roland.

Featuring the charming, down to earth Willow, hilarious one-line send-ups about small village residents (not to mention the village itself - named Belcherton!), and a host of varied secondary characters, Watching Willow Watts is a fast-paced, sweet yet daring story.

Roland subtly introduces the reader to Willow's world, deftly raises the stakes, and there's no way to put the book down. You've just got to find out what happens next. I was almost late for work one morning as I couldn't stop reading!

She has a knack of making you care for each character's fate, right down to that of Krusty the rooster. I've already started thinking about which actors could play Betts, and Dickie, and Willow herself...

Don't miss out! Watching Willow Watts is available now on Smashwords, Amazon.com, Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk.
