Yay! It's Watching Willow Watts Launch Day!

I can't believe the day has finally come. After months of struggle, blood, sweat, and wine-soaked tears, launch day for my second novel, Watching Willow Watts, is here!

If you're so inclined, you can buy a copy of Willow on Amazon UK for £1.71, or on Amazon.com for $2.99. Paperback coming in November!

Right! Now that's out of the way, let's get started on the fun stuff. First up, my Marilyn Monroe vlog (cringe!). Since in the novel, Willow becomes an overnight sensation after a YouTube video of her Marilyn Monroe impression goes viral, it seemed only fitting I go on YouTube, too. I apologise in advance!





Have you survived? Hope so! Because today is the 'If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be...' web splash! Almost 150 bloggers have signed up to post about who they would be, if they could choose anyone. Pop by and visit other participants, if you have a chance. I can't wait to see who everyone has chosen!

So who would I be, if I could be anyone? I wouldn't be Marilyn, that's for sure. I would be Emily Carr. Now, chances are you haven't heard of her. I actually had to Google the name to make sure I had it correct. She's a Canadian landscape painter, born in the late 1800s. Back in the days before I'd heard of Cezanne and Monet and anything else, I remember staring at her paintings and thinking: wow. I loved the colours and the vibrancy.

Carr was also a writer, although I didn't know it at the time. I remember seeing a photo of her and her easel in the midst of the Canadian wilderness, and I thought: 'I want that'. That solitude; that absorption. That dedication to art and creation.

Defying the role of women at the time, Carr is a true Canadian icon. But more than that, she's a true creative.

So... the million dollar (pound!) question. Who would you be, if you could be anyone? And even if you're not posting, feel free to Tweet (with the tag #watchingwillowwatts) or Facebook (tag @Talli Roland) to be in with a chance to win prizes!

A million thank yous to everyone supporting me today. I can't say it enough -- it means the world to me.

  3. Happy Launch Day! I'm going to Amazon now to buy your book. I chose my own character, Samuel McCord, to be if I could. I used this quote from him :
    "I move in all kinds of circles, meet all sorts of people.

    I learned engraving from a counterfeiter,

    accounting from a swindler.

    A succubus once tried to teach me the tango.

    But nothing doing. I didn't have the hips for it."

    May the sales for your book go through the roof! Roland

  9. I would be my protagonist Chase Manhattan, only a little bit better in every catagory. Sometimes, it turns out he's a lot better. Chase was a fun character to develop.

    Have fun and here's to zillions of sales!

  24. Great video!

    Nice to learn of Emily Carr. I've always envied Georgia O'Keeffe, all alone in New Mexico painting her petunias and cow skulls. :)

  28. Happy launch day! Me? I'd be...me, twenty years ago so I could get my writing arse in gear sooner and perhaps I'd be published by now. Willow Watts sounds fab, loved Jessica's review. I went to purchase and...ARRGHH! I don't have a Kindle. I didn't realize Willow was an ebook. All the more reason to get an e-reader.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hope the launch continues to go with a great big Hollywood bang! Love your video, looks like it was a lot of fun to make.

    I've blogged who I would like to be, and I'm reading the book on my Kindle. :)

  30. Congratulations!! I'm waiting for the paperback. I love paperbacks. If I could be anyone.... following other's example, come see me and find out!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love your choice, Talli. Carr sounds like an inspiration, and I love that you chose a fellow Canadian. Happy launch day! xx

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, and I don't have a picture of the person I'd want to be, but I bet she looked a lot like your Emily Carr. Great choice, by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh pooh I'm at work and can't play your clip!!!

    Awww but I love your alter ego!!!! I've not heard of her so thank you - she sounds AMAZING!!

  46. Happy Release Day, Talli! It would be a cool to be a painter. I like to color and draw, but just for fun. I wish I had true artistic talent.

    I chose Mulan. She's a Disney character, haha!

    Love the video.

    I think I've heard of Emily Carr before; though I hadn't known that much about her! She sounds like a very interesting person.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Happy Launch Day, Talli! CONGRATS! Enjoyed the vlog. You make a wonderful Marilyn Monroe.

    I think if I could be anyone, I'd be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. One of my favorite movies.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Congratulations on your launch day! I watched the video all the way through but you didn't sing Happy Birthday Mr President and I was so sure you were going to! ;-)

    I've never heard of Emily Carr. She sounds like a talented lady (much like yourself). Sorry I haven't joined in on this blogfest (so little time etc etc) and I can't think of anyone I'd rather be because all the folk I think of seem to have had trials in their lives. Safer to stay as I am.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Really cool 'production', Talli. Congrats on the release!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Woo! Talli, I already got my copy and CAN'T WAIT! It's in the que! :D I'll blog about my choice tomorrow, but for now, my "who would you be" is up on FB~

    Best of luck! <3

    ReplyDelete
  58. Happy Launch Day, Talli. I just returned to blogging so I missed the sign up for your websplash. Sorry! But I'll do you one better - I'll buy the book when it comes out in November! <3

    Here's to your great success - you deserve it!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Happy Book Release Day!

    You make a lovely, Marilyn!

    If I could be anyone I'd be (drum roll) Kent Brown. He's an amazing man and the heart of the Highlight's Magazine/Foundation.

    Congrat's again, Talli.

  60. Congrats on launch day! (so exciting!) And if I could be anyone, it would probably be someone younger, so I could see more of what the future will bring. :)

  61. Kisses back! Love the video. And your pick! Emily Carr was such a strong, passionate, talented woman.

  64. Congrats TALLI!!!!! Happy Launch Day!!!! I LOVED the book!

    Congrats again!

  66. Oh, oh , oh! Emily Carr? Really? I *love* Emily. I've read all her stuff. Someone even once stole on of my Emily Carr books!
    My dream is to find her lost England journals at some car boot sale and pick them up for only a fiver [g]

  67. Happy launch day! (Today I'm Mary Wollstonecraft!)

  68. Congratulations! Hope you have a blast. So incredibly cute that you dressed up as Marilyn. Chicago just erected a HUGE Marilyn statue on Michigan Avenue - you should have Michael D take a picture for you!

  69. You've made me feel like a bad Canadian because I didn't know about Emily Carr. Shame on me!

  71. I just posted mine, yay! Happy launch day, Talli, I'm so excited for you xxx

  72. YEAH! Happy Launch Day!
    I love your Marilyn impersonation! And it was great fun to think up who I'd be. :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Nice vlog--you look absolutely lovely. And you did pick an obscure person to be. I struggled with the question.

  75. Woo hoo, Happy Release Day, Talli! Watching Willow Watts is a great read, and I know it will do well! I certainly enjoyed it. :)

    If I could be anyone, I'd be... Chun Li! Well, I've spilled my secret here, but anyone who wants to see photos of my costume (oh yes, I dressed up!) will have to check out my blog post. ;)

  76. You're amazing, Talli. I am so impressed by what you've organized, here. My entire sidebar is filled with images of your book and I feel chill bumps tingling on my skin as I write this.

    You are a force to be reckoned with. Emily Carr would be proud of her Canadian sister. (Even though she now lives in England. ;))

    Really, really impressed, girl.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Happy Launch Day!

    Great job on the v-log. I'm having fun reading everybody's entries for who they wish they could be. I have no idea who I'd be, but I love your choice. Someone artsy and mysterious would suit me. :)

    Congrats again on the release and best of luck!!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Congrats on the new book and Happy Launch Day!

    Excellent job with your own Marilyn Monroe look and wonderful explanation of why you chose Marilyn Monroe.

    If I could be anyone, I would be Bruce Lee. Yeah, I know. I'm a girl. But Bruce is like...it's hard to explain. Beyond his perfect body, masterful martial arts skills and beautiful smile, he had some demons to deal with. He was perfect imperfection.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Phew! Finally have a second to pop back here!

    I am honestly overwhelmed and so grateful for all the support everyone has shown me. I could't have asked for a better community of people around me. xx BIG LOVE!

    I'm trying to make it around to everyone... bear with me!

  89. I came over here from Elle Strauss' blog (http://ellestraussbooks.blogspot.com/), bought a copy of Willow, and look forward to reading it!
    And, wow, you would want to be Emily Carr? She was right on the top of my list, too! But then I thought better of it, because I don't really like dogs, and she spent a lot of her time breeding dogs to make money for her art. I still haven't figured out who I want to be yet.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Congrats on your launch day! Yay for you and Willow. BTW, You look adorable as MM. Great vlog. =D

  91. Happy launch day sweetie! You've worked hard for it. The book is a fun read!


    I can’t do this on my blog because it’s booked two months in advance with guests, so I’ll answer it here, Talli.

    Who would I be? While there is lots of people I admire I’ve always been rather comfortable in my own skin. A character in one of my stories has a life I think is very cool. Alexis Raine Martin, aka, Raine, is a wildlife photographer and biologist. Her passion is predators and wolves in particular. She’s on the hunt for a person who is targeting several wolf packs she’s photographed. There have been unexplained deaths and seemingly ritualistic killings. Why? Another, Nico, is also investigating those deaths but from another angle. They’re his brethren. Death has followed the beautiful Alexis Raine Martin wherever she went and he planned on stopping it.

    It’s been fun writing her adventures. She comes from a family with some unusual powers—communication with animals is just one of them. It’s something I always wished I could do, ditto on documenting animals and particularly wolf packs in the wild. A secret longing, as a kid, was the ability to become an animal—like a wolf, or one of the big cats and run with them and see their world as they do. Um, so long as I could return to my own skin, lol!

  115. Hi Talli - It's still Wednesday in Utah, so I posted my character, promoting "Willow". All the best for a wonderful book launch and GRRREAT sales!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Congratulations Talli. Willow is moving from strength to strength. Bask in the wonderfulness of it all.

    I haven't heard of Emily Carr before, but I will be sure to search her out. Great Launch Party.

  117. Talli - you rock! Congratulations on such an awesome day & the top 100 with Amazon. Wonderful! Your spirit always makes me smile.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Loved the vlog! And happy launch day. :)

    You make a great Marilyn, by the way.

    Hmm . . . and I would be Hermione, because I love that she's smart and confident and so grounded to boot.

  120. Congratulations!!! Happy Launch Day. I got into this just a bit ago so I missed the whole entire party. :( I still posted though, because I believe it's never too late to party.

    ReplyDelete
  122. So I found you Talli via Alex Cavanaugh's page...:)

    You've got a wonderful blog...I am seeing Marilyn Monroe in it! Your look-a-like I am sure Talli!!!

    It's no mistake when Alex said you are the cutest Canadian girl one could ever meet!

    Have a nice day Talli!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Congratulations Talli! i'm so happy for you. I'm going to buy the paperback as soon as it comes out. (I don't have a Kindle, sorry!)
    If I could be anyone? I think it'd be fun to be Jane Austen, so that I could possibly meet some of the real-life inspirations for the characters in her books. I also think it'd be fun to be one of those classic Hollywood actors for a day, like Ginger Rogers, just to see what movies were like back then.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Happy launch day! You look great as Marilyn. I look forward to reading your books.
    I have not heard of Emily Carr before, interesting. I'll have to check her out.

  126. Congrats, Talli. Way to go with the vlog. You're adorable, and I love your accent! Your book sounds fantastic. I want to read it, for sure. Let's see, I'd like to be Lucille Ball! Best comedienne ever. I mean, c'mon, I Love Lucy, and doesn't everybody love Lucy? LOL

  127. I look forward to the paperback!

    I'm quite familiar with Emily Carr... a fine artist, to say the least, with some evocative work!

    And I'd have to be Wyatt Earp. Just saying.
