Ashley Dupre Writes New York Post’s First eBook

Ashley Dupré, the former call girl in the middle of Eliot Spitzer’s career-ending scandal, has written the New York Post‘s first eBook.

Our sibling blog FishbowlNY has all the details about the $5.99 eBook:

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.
