The book is set in the Emerald City, better known as Seattle. The beautiful metropolis is hands-down my favorite city, so it seemed the perfect location for Life of Privilege.
Shortly after the story starts Katie relocates to Seattle from New York City, naturally, she explores her new home and I tried to pay homage to the area by having her visit lots of Seattle attractions. Several of the city’s iconic landmarks appear in the book, including the world-famous Pike Place Market, Space Needle, Central Library, the Great Wheel and more.
As my blog readers probably know, I live in the Pacific Northwest, in the Seattle metropolitan area. Recently, I made a trip into the city and visited a few of the landmarks that Katie and Royce explore in the book. During my adventure in the Emerald City, I brought along a camera and a paperback copy of Life of Privilege.
Beginning tomorrow, I’m hosting a very fun giveaway! I’m calling it The Life of Privilege Six Days of Selfies Giveaway.
The prize draw will last a total of six days, from Saturday, May 23 until Friday, May 28. During that time, I’ll be posting a selfie a day across my social networks. The picture will be of me holding a copy of Life of Privilege in front of a different Seattle landmark, along with a brief excerpt from the book relating to the location where the selfie was taken.
Here’s how to enter:
- First, friend or follow me on any of the following social media profiles. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr or Google+.
- Each day when I post that day’s selfie, like, share, retweet or @mention/tag me to be entered into the drawing.
I’ll giveaway the signed copy of Life of Privilege that I posed with in the various selfies to one U.S. winner. I’ll giveaway one ecopy to an international winner. In the event both winners are U.S. residents, the runner-up will receive the ecopy. If both winners are international residents, they’ll each receive an ecopy and a new U.S. winner will be selected for the autographed print copy.
On May 29th I’ll go through all the posts and randomly select the winners and they’ll be notified on my social media networks.
Good luck to all who enter!
Here’s a bit more about Life of Privilege
Katherine Dawson was born into a life of privilege as the heiress to an apparel dynasty. Between judging a reality TV competition for budding fashion designers and having been the face of her family’s clothing line for most of her life, she’s one of the biggest celebrities in her field.
When she becomes engaged to up-and-coming television producer Nathan Taylor, she appears to have it all. To any outsider, she has a picture-perfect life, so when Katherine leaves her groom-to-be at the altar and disappears, the tabloids are full of speculation over her sudden departure.
Fleeing New York to hide out in Seattle, she quickly finds that living the life of an heiress in hiding isn’t as easy as she thought, especially after she meets a magnetic writer named Royce Reynolds. In her new life on the West Coast, she struggles to keep her anonymity, and experiences a relationship with a man who wants her for the person she is, not the celebrity she used to be.
