Published by Riverdale Ave. Books
Manic Panic, The Popcorn Factory, Candy.com and Windy City Novelties Are Among Brands to Offer Exclusive Deals
New York, NY – June 16, 2013 – The first-ever ebook to feature a private sale to a targeted audience launches today. More than 60 companies have flash-sale offers in "Throw a True Blood Party: An Unofficial Guide to Partying with Your Favorite Vamps", including ThePopcornFactory.com, ManicPanic.com, WindyCityNovelties.com, and Candy.com. Published by Riverdale Avenue Books, “Throw a True Blood Party” celebrates vamps, tramps, and all things deadly.
“This is the first private sale in a book,” said author and co-producer Paula Conway. “Companies that want to reach a particular demographic have a unique medium with a limited-time sale. The products featured were curated to give the purchaser access to great deals and a first-look at products that are rare and different. This is a party book on steroids; it celebrates all things vampire while offering a sale on some cool items too.”
The targeted merchandise in "Throw a True Blood Party" is broad in scope, ranging
from makeup and clothing, to furniture and food. There's a chandelier maker who has created a custom-made black crystal chandelier for readers, and jewelry designer Marianna Harutunian, who has provided baubles for characters in the HBO Series, offers an exclusive discount in the book; fans can buy the exact jewelry the character Pam has worn and pay less.
The author of "Throw a True Blood Party" is Paula Conway who wrote the best-selling book "The Beauty BUYble" (Harper Collins, 2007),”The Everything Calorie Counting Cookbook” (Adams Media, 2007), and the upcoming "Turning Heads: Oscar Blandi's Celebrity Styles". "Throw a True Blood Party" is the first in a series of ebooks that will be written and curated by author Paula Conway to feature private sales for member readers.
All deals, discounts and offers require a unique code, varied and set by the merchandiser, which can only be obtained by purchasing the book. Many also have embedded links, only accessible through the book.
The act-quick-or-it's-gone discounts are peppered among vampire and True Blood themed party ideas, including how to create a faerie environment or wolf pack den to entertain your guests in; do your hair and makeup just like Pam, Sookie, or Lafayette; to original recipes and drinks (like the Bloody Billith or Eric’s Bare Bottom). Sending your guests home with swag? Try the coffin clutch with blood drops. Want to avoid a fang-over? Vampires must leave with a can of Mercy. Need a chocolate fix? Vamps take home the chocolate faerie; werewolves get the chocolate bone; and faeries snag the chocolate sun from Lucas Candies.
