Former Travel & Leisure and CondéNet employee Valerie Stivers' first novel takes place a magazine named Tasty, the flagship of a big publishing empire called Oldham, Inc. At Tasty, editors stay up all night and keep the lights off in their offices until midmorning, and they're almost never spotted eating. Also, there's no garlic allowed in the cafeteria! It takes heroine Kate McGraw a while to clue into the fact that they're all literal bloodsucking vampires, but you know what? Who can blame her. Last night, Emily and photographer Laurel Ptak found themselves in the gothy confines of Death and Co., where a group of sallow-skinned yet not undead magazine types had gathered to fete the book.
