28th Nov, 2012 - Notting Hill Press is very pleased to announce that Talli Roland’s new novel, The Pollyanna Plan, publishes globally today in ebook format on Amazon.


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. For the next year, 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?


Told from the two main characters' (Emma and Will) points of view, Talli Roland said, “I really enjoyed writing this one and delving into both their personalities. I admit to developing a tiny crush on Will!”

Bella's career and relationship are her life's foundationwear: not glamorous and perhaps a bit binding, but supportive enough... until she realizes that they are not enough. Her life is sagging badly. She's never been in love with her boyfriend, despite a decade together. And somehow she stopped being a musician-with-a-day-job and became a consultant-who-was-musical. So she takes a terrifying leap of faith, leaving her relationship and resolving to follow her musical dreams no matter what. Unfortunately, the life you walk away from doesn't always let you walk away.


With a wonderfully warm and witty cast of friends, all navigating between their ideals and the realities they face, together they'll find out what love and compromise really mean in this empowering tale about grasping life with both hands.
