Back in the day, cover meetings were stressful.
4 suits would stand behind me looking at my mock-ups,
and they would say things like:
"Blah blah blah newsstand sales....
Blah blah blah focus groups...
Blah blah blah..."
But this month, it was all:
"Should we put Paul McCartney on the cover, or The Cat Lady?"
And I said:
"The Cat Lady looks AWESOME!"
Yes, she does.
