Not that Rebecca Wolff has anything new to add, apart from accusing all us bloggers of “nattering” about the cover; she just continues to defend the creative decision as a marketing experiment: “I’m closely monitoring point-of-purchase sales–but of course it’s not experimental at all, since it’s long been proven that sex sells.”
