Covers Sell

MORE has scored.  This cover is hardly subtle.  It literally screams “Buy Me.”

Here’s how the Editor-in Chief, Linda Lewis describes it:

“This cover is pure gold because it has noticeable attitude, and at the same time accurately captures what MORE is all about. The strong in-character image of a beloved actress (in our target demographic) works in tandem with the holiday theme, but with a surprising and humorous twist. Some of the cover lines are provocative, others are benefit-oriented but overall, the combo of the text with the superstar photo makes it eminently appealing.”

Very simply put:  this issue looks like it will be a super-fun read.  One industry expert has boldly predcited massive sales.  A good bet.
