NJ – The Stash Plan Signing

00000000-The Stash PlanLaura Prepon, star of Orange Is the New Black, and integrative nutritionist Elizabeth Troy sign their new book, The Stash Plan: Your 21-Day Guide to Shred Weight, Feel Great, and Take Charge of Your Health at Bookends on Thursday, March 3rd, 2016 at 7:00 PM.

Despite her glowing on-screen presence as the star of That 70’s Show and Orange Is the New Black, Laura Prepon has always struggled with weight issues, digestive issues, bloating, and low energy. After years of starving herself with crazy diets and punishing herself with tortuous workouts, Prepon met integrative nutritionist Elizabeth Troy, who combines Eastern holistic medicine and food science in her practice. Troy “unstuck” Prepon’s malfunctioning organs and metabolism through targeted eating and stretching that finally allowed her to lose those stubborn pounds and thrive.

Wanting to share this life-changing success, Prepon joined with Troy to create The Stash Plan, a 21-day plan and lifestyle guide that combines modern nutritional science with Chinese Meridian Theory (CMT) to detoxify the body and burn fat. In The Stash Plan, you’ll learn what to cook and how to create a combinable “stash” of meals—proteins, carbs, and vegetables—and nutritional bone broths to eat throughout the week. With twice-weekly cooking sessions as the basis of the plan, Prepon and Troy will show you how to make healthy, budget-friendly meals that are easy and ideal for a busy, on-the-go lifestyle. The Stash Plan gives you the key to heal yourself from the inside out and start living the life you’ve always wanted.

NJ – Poison Ivy/Gutter Magic Signing

0000-esm16

Amy Chu and Rich Douek appear at East Side Mags on Sunday, January 24, 2016 from noon till 4:00 PM, signing copies of their work and answering questions about the industry, their experiences and getting a little educational in the hopes of inspiring young writers (and artists) to follow their dreams!

Meet Amy Chu. Amy is an extremely talented comic book writer whose newest release is a Poison Ivy mini-series entitled – Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death! FINALLY, Bat-fans rejoice as Poison Ivy gets her very own mini!

Amy has also written stories for DC’s Sensation Comics featuring Wonder Woman, Vertigo’s Strange Sports Stories and the Vertigo Quarterly CMYK! She is the co-founder of Alpha Girl Comics which publishes her own anthology series Girls Night Out and horror/mystery The VIP Room! She enjoys non-profit work, creating educational comics for the New York Historical Society, Baltimore Museum of Art and the Museum of Chinese in Americas.

Meet Rich Douek. Rich is a Montclair, NJ local and another SUPER talented writer! Rich became infatuated with comics at a young age, using his allowance and whatever spare change he could find to buy them off the rack at the candy store near his home in NYC. Years, later, after building a successful career in copywriting (and filling up quite a few long boxes), he was able to realize a lifelong dream by publishing GUTTER MAGIC, his first original comic, through IDW and Comics Experience. Check him out on Twitter @rdouek.

Both Poison Ivy: The Cycle of Life & Death and Gutter Magic come out on January 20th and East Side Mags is happy to be able to host BOTH of these amazing talents the very weekend their books hit the shelves!
