Blood is the new black : a novel
Valerie Stiver
Adult Fiction STIVERS

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

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.
