Prosecco & Paparazzi Cover

ABOUT: When fifteen minutes of fame goes horribly wrong… Charlotte Young and her five closest friends ring in the New Year on a ski vacation in the swanky, celebrity-packed French Alps, where her world collides with long-time celeb crush, Des Bannerman—aka “The King of Rom-Com.” Unexpectedly, Charlotte finds herself happily reconciled to an innocent evening of drinking champagne, gambling, and chatting to the celebrity of her dreams. Charlotte’s friends join forces to help her realize her lifelong fantasy, yet his girlfriend, the latest Bond Girl, proves an insurmountable obstacle. Lighthearted banter turns into tabloid fodder and leaves Charlotte saddled with a restraining order. With the help of her friends, Charlotte finds the answers to life’s biggest questions while trying to deal with the fallout of her fifteen minutes of fame. Prosecco & Paparazzi is a contemporary romantic comedy about what happens when the paths of a celebrity god and a mere mortal collide.

PRESS RELEASE:

For Release October 21, 2015

BOOKTROPE PUBLISHING RELEASES NOVEL COMPARED TO SEX AND THE CITY Seattle, WA, October 21, 2015—Booktrope Editions, an imprint of Booktrope Publishing, announced today the release of Washington state author Celia Kennedy’s novel Prosecco & Paparazzi, book one of The Passport Series. The novel is available on Amazon.com in Kindle and paperback versions, on BarnesandNoble.com in Nook and paperback versions, Apple’s iBooks, as well as Ingram Content Group’s Lightning Source. In this contemporary romantic comedy Charlotte Young and her five closest friends ring in the New Year on a ski vacation in the swanky, celebrity-packed French Alps, where her world collides with long-time celebrity crush, Des Bannerman. Lighthearted banter turns into tabloid fodder, and Charlotte sets about dealing with the fallout of her fifteen minutes of fame. This story explores what happens when the paths of a celebrity god and a mere mortal collide. “My husband and I watch Clint Eastwood on Inside the Actors Studio,” said Kennedy. “Inspired by this multi-faceted man, we both thought how amazing it would be to meet him. Which begged the question, how does one go about meeting a celebrity in a non-stalkerish way? I began to wonder how celebrities make new friends, allow people into their lives.” The sexy, stylish characters in Prosecco & Paparazzi have been likened to the leading ladies in Candace Bushnell’s beloved Sex and the City. Kennedy hopes fans of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda will also fall in love with Charlotte, Marian, Hillary, Kathleen, and Tiziana. “Celia Kennedy indulged my love of all things Hollywood and celebrity as well as my love of exotic locations all over the world in this delightful story that reminded me of the fun and sexiness of Sex and the City,” said Tess Woods, author of Love at First Flight.

Celia Kennedy’s passion for travel, friendship, self-discovery, wine, chocolate, love, and the designed and natural world is the foundation of her books. She was born on a military base in Wurzburg, Germany. Her parents’ penchant for traveling stuck with her, and she’s lived in and traveled through several countries. Celia has authored three fiction novels and published four anthologies. She is currently working on book three in The Passport Series. She lives in Washington state with the loves of her life.

Add the prosecco then the sorbet, and give it a good stir. Pour into the prepared glasses and pop in a few strips of lemon zest.
