Watching Willow Watts Launch Party!

It's really great to see so many blogs out there celebrating the Launch of Talli Rolland's Watching Willow Watts - her fabulous second novel.

I have my copy already and if you're so inclined, you can buy a copy of Willow for yourself on Amazon UK for £1.71, or on for $2.99.
Paperback coming in November!

So ... If I could be anyone, who would I be?

There are so many choices, as there are so many people that I admire (and envy just a little bit). But the person I'm going to choose is Bertie Wooster.

Bertie Wooster was a fiction character created by the inimitable PG Wodehouse. He is a gentleman of independent means (in other words sufficiently wealthy that doesn't have to work for a living) and is looked after by the utterly brilliant Jeeves - his "gentleman's gentleman". If you ever get a chance to read any of the PG Wodehouse stories or watch any of the TV series episodes broadcast between 1990 and 1993, staring Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, take it with both hands.
I can only hope I wouldn't be such a silly ass as poor old Bertie!

Actually, if I were to give a more serious answer to this question, I would say that if I could be anyone, I would be me. For all the ups and downs of my life, I wouldn't want anyone else's, because I already have so much that I could not bear to let go.

Good luck Talli with launch day - I hope that Willow is the huge success that you deserve it to be!


  1. I haven't heard of this TV series. That's awesome Hugh Laurie was in it. Very cool. :)

  2. Yay! Thank you so much for taking part! I love your choice. It's been so fantastic to see loads of bloggers and tweeters take part today. I'm really grateful.

  3. I've never heard of him. Need to download my copy of Talli's book today.

  4. The last bit was nicely said Dom. It's so refreshing to see someone who is truly happy with their lives.

    It's been ages.... Please drop by and say hi...

  5. Oh I can so see you as Bertie!!! Oh yes!!!!

    Yep - that's you!! :-)

    Take care

  6. I've never heard of the series, either; but he sounds like an interesting character! :)

  7. This is such a classic with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, they are the quintessential pairing for the roles. Amusing choice. I met up with Tony and Margo yesterday for a good natter, which was great fun. WE talk for hours when we all get together. Sadly Ellie couldn't join us.

  8. I'd love to see this series. Fry and Laurie are two of my favorite actors.
