New York Post’s First eBook is Written by Former Call Girl Ashely Dupré

You had to know that The New York Post would only enter into the eBook business if it could do so in a ridiculous way. Thankfully, the paper did not disappoint. The Post’s first eBook will be the pun-tastic Tricks of The Trade, written by Ashley Dupré, Eliot Spitzer’s favorite, um, writer.

Tricks of The Trade is a collection of the Post’s “Ask Ashley” columns, which are penned by Dupré. The advice is billed as “An honest guide to sex, love, lust, and healthy relationships.” We assume the Post is joking about the “healthy relationships” part, but you never know.

“Many of our readers have already embraced the Post’s digital products, and we believe this new venture into eBooks will prove very popular,” said Jesse Angelo, publisher of the Post, in a statement.

Tricks of The Trade ($5.99) is available for download from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple’s iBookstore, Google eBooks and more.
