Book Launch: The No-Kids Club by Talli Roland

Today we help celebrate the launch of the fabulously talented Talli Roland’s latest novel ‘The No-Kids Club’





At almost forty, Clare Donoghue is living child-free and loving it.

Then her boyfriend says he wants kids, breaking off their promising relationship. And it’s not just boyfriends: one by one, her formerly carefree friends are swallowed up in a nonstop cycle of play dates and baby groups. So Clare declares enough is enough and decides it’s time for people who don’t have children to band together. And so the No-Kids Club is born.

As the group comes together—Anna, who’s seeking something to jumpstart a stale marriage, and Poppy, desperate for a family but unable to conceive—Clare’s hoping to make the most of the childless life with her new friends. But is living child-free all it’s cracked up to be?



Congratulations, Talli,  and very best of luck from us all! Xx

Talli Roland celebrates the re-release of The Pollyanna Plan


Fantastic news! Talli Roland’s bestselling novel THE POLLYANNA PLAN has a second lease of life. Lake Union Publishing (an arm of Amazon Publishing) are re-releasing the book today, complete with a shiny new cover, and also making it available in print and audio (; Amazon UK).


THE POLLYANNA PLAN spent over two months in the top 100 on the Amazon UK Kindle charts, and it was selected as a Top Book of 2013 by Amazon’s editors.

Talli’s next novel, THE NO-KIDS CLUB, will be published by Lake Union on 3rd June. The Kindle format, ebook, and audio book are now available for pre-order (; Amazon UK). Talli says, the cover is coming soon – we’ve had some great designs and are finalizing them now!


Is finding true love as easy as an attitude change?

Thirty-something Emma Beckett has always looked down on ‘the glass is half full’ optimists, believing it’s better to be realistic than delusional. But when she loses her high-powered job and fiancé in the same week, even Emma has difficulty keeping calm and carrying on.

With her world spinning out of control, and bolstered by a challenge from her best friend, Emma makes a radical decision. From here on in, she’ll behave like Pollyanna: attempting to always see the upside, no matter how dire the situation.

Can adopting a positive attitude give Emma the courage to build a new life, or is finding the good in everything a very bad idea? 


Sounds fabulous to us, Talli! Very best of luck with it X

Tuesday Chit Chat with Talli Roland

So, the lovely Talli Roland is with us today – knowing Talli likes her coffee, we’ve plenty on the go and then there’s a drop of wine for later on … please feel free to help yourselves, nothing better than a coffee/glass of wine and a natter.

There are lots of things we wanted to ask Talli, but riding high on the list was : How do you manage to continually look so glamorous?

First of all, thank you! Secondly, you wouldn’t ask that if you saw me in my usual daily attire: sloppy jogging bottoms, raggedy tops, and wrapped in a chocolate-stained blanket from Primark. Working from home, I make an effort to look normal when I leave the house, and trot out the shoes and clothes I don’t have a chance to wear anymore. But as soon as I’m back in the flat, I’m all about comfort.

You’ve received some great reviews for your books, what’s the harshest and best thing anyone’s said about your books?

Learning to take negative reviews in stride is one of the hardest things about being published. I’ve had to accept it’s impossible to please everyone. I think one of the harshest things a reviewer ever said was that I’m ‘a disgrace to my genre’ and I ‘should stop writing’. Yikes.

You have great book titles, how easy do you find it to think up titles for your books

I find the title is the first thing that pops into my mind! It’s got to be short, snappy, and memorable – and also reflect the core concept of the novel. I love thinking of titles and blurbs. In fact, if I could do just that, I’d be happy! How often do they get changed? My first two novels were traditionally published, but the titles and covers were very much a collaborative effort. Since I self-publish now, I run the titles by my beta-readers, who usually approve.

What are your three favourite book titles?

Jane Lovering’s ‘Please Don’t Stop the Music’ comes to mind. I also love ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ (so evocative and fun!), and ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ – such a simple title, but it encapsulates the book’s spirit perfectly.

Thanks for dropping by Talli, it’s been great having you here.
