‘If I Could Be Anyone, I’d Be" - Watching Willow Watts Launch Party.

Wawies.com - Glitters

A fancy dress book launch party. What could be better than that.  And, our gracious host Marilyn Monroe aka Talli Roland is handing out virtual bubbly at this very mo. Excuse me while I reach for a champers flute and wish her all the luck in the world with Watching Willow Watts.  

So, who did I come as?
If I could magic myself into Keira Knightley I'd be a very happy bunny. You see, I'm passionate about historical romances. In particular swashbuckling romances, and Keira has had some plum roles in the field of historical movies, not least The Duchess. Not only that, she's starred opposite some really dishy men! 

If ever my historicals could be made into movies, well, she'd make for an excellent Emerald Lady Penhavean in Her Favoured Captain, and perfection for Diamonta Whitaker in The Highwayman's Mistress.     

To see who else is at the book launch party, pop along to the main party room

Great choice, dignified, with natural grace and beauty.

She certainly did have some delicious male co-stars :-)

I truly hate Kiera as she gets to kiss Johnny Depp and I don't!

Jane Austen

Talli Roland said...

Ooh, fab choice! And yes, Johnny Depp! YUM. I'd love to have Kiera's beauty.

And here is some champers for you... *hands over*

Thanks so much for taking part!

Francine Howarth said...

Hi ladies, and thanks for stopping by to chat!

Thanks Talli, I so luv champers. Lovely book launch!


Talei said...

Oh fabulous. I love Keira on stage,I saw her in The Childrens Hour.

Happy Wednesday, lovely lady x

Rachel Morgan said...

What a very excellent choice! I really loved Pirates of the Carribbean.

Theresa Milstein said...

I love your choice. She's so pretty. The only time they didn't show off her looks was in Bend it Like Bekham. Sadly, we share the same birthday, but not the same DNA... or age.

Rosalind Adam said...

Good choice and as this is our own imaginary world you could request to be turned into her only when she's in amorous embraces with drop-dead gorgeous guys.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Francine .. yes - she'd be a fun person to be .. excellent parts, handsome acting partners and fun historical periods to work in.

Cheers to you and Keira - and I hope your books come to fruition as movies with Ms K as the actress of choice ... here's to success - Hilary

PS - thanks for unembedding - I can comment .. cheers!

Francine Howarth said...

Hi Talei and Rachel,

Thanks for taking time out to stop by! ;)


Francine Howarth said...

Hi Rosalind,

Oooh fairy-godmother touch... What a great idea! :o


Francine Howarth said...

Hi Hilary,

Thanks for coming back to post. I prefer pop-up boxes, too. And added to what Rosalind said, a bit of Pandora's box re male actors could be a real treat! ;)


LR said...

She's a very pretty gal. And a great actress!

Francine Howarth said...

Hi LR,

Absolutely. She was brilliant as the Duchess! ;)


Madeleine said...

Fabulously sultry choice Francine :O)

Francine Howarth said...

Hi Madeleine,

Yeah, she's gorgeous! ;)


Ann said...

What a great choice. She would make a wonderful Heroine for your historicals. Loved her in King Arthur too.

I read this yesterday and was sure I left a comment. Brain Blank strikes again!
