Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets The Devil Wears Prada in this hilarious tale of what happens when a girl discovers her boss really is a bloodsucking bitch...
Valerie Stivers' first job was as the intern on a major fashion magazine, and she has since worked as a sex columnist for alternative Moscow paper The Exile, edited Time Out New York, and been a freelance journalist for many other magazines.
Talking fashion and bloodsuckers is all in a day's work for wide-eyed intern Kate McAlliston in Stivers's sharp debut. When Kate takes a summer job working for Tasty, the "hottest young women's magazine in America," she discovers "blood-spattered" is not only a trend but the style favored by a nest of chic Manhattan vamps in stilettos. Lillian Hall is the elegant but oh-so-scary editor-in-chief of Tasty, headquartered in "The Dark Tower" of Oldham Inc., a media empire much like Cond Nast, one of the author's old employers. As Kate helps organize the Tasty Girl modeling contest and choose the finalists, the blood-drained bodies start to pile up, including a freelancer's poor little Chihuahua. Stivers's sly satire capitalizes on the lingering allure of The Devil Wears Prada, the bubbly appeal of Ugly Betty, the campy joy of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the drop-dead glamour of Fashion Week.

'As anyone who has ever burned up her credit cards to purchase Versace or D&G knows, fashion is a blood-sucking business. In the can't-put-it-down BLOOD IS THE NEW BLACK, the reigning fashionistas (think Miranda in The Devil Wears Pr"ada) are ancient, evil, and very well-dressed. I was hooked on page one!' -- Julie Kenner, USA Today bestselling author of Carpe Demon 'I absolutely loved BLOOD IS THE NEW BLACK! Smart, sassy, and crackling with suspense it's like Buffy", only better! Sink your teeth into this wickedly funny page turner!' -- Johanna Edwards, US bestselling author of The Next Big Thing
