San Francisco store
Order a signed copy

Nicole Richie signs copies of her new novel Priceless ($24.99). When people think of Nicole Richie, they think of a woman who wears many hats. She’s a philanthropist, a designer, a fashionista, an actress, and a mother of two. She is also an accomplished writer.

When her first novel, The Truth About Diamonds was published in 2005, it captivated countless readers—giving them a glimpse into the rarified world of society’s young elite. Now, Richie picks up her pen again and offers Priceless, a contemporary novel that explores one woman’s search for herself and what is most important to her. In typical Richie style,
Priceless is replete with vivid imagery, intelligent humor, and tantalizing scenarios. But it also plumbs the more serious topics of self-esteem, self-reliance, and finding one’s way in life.
