When nice-girl Kate McGraw finds herself working at Tasty, a magazine with its finger on the pulse of modern style, she’s finally able to put her flair for fashion to good use. But can she keep up with the Tasty staffers? Ethereally beautiful and extremely emaciated, they stay out all night, never look the worse for wear, and are always dressed to kill.Like everyone else around the office, Kate finds herself begrudgingly reading dispatches from a snarky industry blog that dubs her colleagues “bloodthirsty vamps.” She knows they don’t mean it literally, but . . . she’s heard whispers of “fashion murders” and she has noticed strange things around the office: Like, why doesn’t her boss get laminates to fix her sharp teeth? Why are the blinds always drawn, and why is there a no-garlic policy in the cafeteria? As well-dressed bodies begin to pile up near all the hot places, Kate has to wonder if there’s a serial killer loose with a grudge against the stylish. Or if the truth is even more sinister: Are Kate’s coworkers actually undead? And, if so, can she design an exit strategy before she finds herself at Tasty forever?

“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 Prada) 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, national bestselling author of The Next Big Thing
