About Watching Willow WattsFor Willow Watts, life has settled into a predictably dull routine: days behind the counter at her father's antique shop and nights watching TV, as the pension-aged residents of Britain's Ugliest Village bed down for yet another early night. But everything changes when a YouTube video of Willow's epically embarrassing Marilyn Monroe impersonation gets millions of hits after a viewer spots Marilyn's ghostly image in a frame.
Instantly, Willow's town is overrun with fans flocking to see the 'new Marilyn'. Egged on by the villagers -- whose shops and businesses are cashing in -- Willow embraces her new identity, dying her hair platinum and ramming herself full of cakes to achieve Marilyn's legendary curves.
But when a former flame returns seeking the old Willow, Willow must decide: can she risk her stardom and her village's newfound fortune on love, or is being Marilyn her ticket to happiness?
Watching Willow Watts is available today on Amazon and Amazon UK. Check it out!
For this launch party you get to come as whoever you want to be. After much thought and deliberation, I decided I'd come as Officer Aeryn Sun from the SciFi show Farscape.
You see, I'm not really much of a party person. How are you supposed to dress for these things? Black leather clad and gun wielding, right? (My husband says yes to that, I'm sure.)
Though she has been known to get gussied up on occasion...
Though I think I'll stick with the leather and guns. Aeryn Sun is a trained soldier conditioned to obey orders and bred to eliminate weaknesses, including emotions. However, over the course of the TV series she becomes one of the few good examples of the strong woman character as she makes a stand for what she believes is right and ultimately ends up embracing her roles as wife and mother as well as freedom fighter.
That way I'll be ready to act if there's an armed communist uprising while we're having the party.
