That's one way to sell a book! Stephen King gives a sneak peek of his new story... on Bar Refaeli's naked body

Known around the world as the 'king of horror', author Stephen King doesn't need to try too hard to sell his books.

But after writing his latest tale Morality, King decided to give the story maximum publicity, by 'publishing' it on the naked body of...supermodel Bar Refaeli.

...features nude on the July cover of the U.S. edition of men's magazine Esquire, with the opening paragraphs of King's short story written across her famous curves.


The write stuff: Bar Rafaeli shows off her figure - and the
opening paragraphs of Stephen King's new novel - on the front cover of Esquire magazine

The 23-year-old beauty had several sentences from the story, along with the title 'Morality' and Stephen King's name written in scrawly black ink across her tanned physique.

Morality is billed as a story about a married couple who are struggling financially.

The wife Nora 'is approached by her employer with a proposition that could make their dream of a home in Vermont a reality. But will it be worth the moral consequence?'

Bar posed naked to launch the magazine's special... ...'I haven't seen anything like that ever. So I wanted to be the girl who did it.' The model lay still while graphic designer James Victor painted first 48 of the story's 6,657 words on her naked flesh....

If I was driving down a lonely Maine road at night, I'd swerve to hit him on the shoulder(I keed, I keed!).

However, his tome The Stand may be the Great American Novel, IMHO. I first read it as a kid and it warped me forever: It helped form my views on authority, morality, and of course, my post-apocalyptic game plam for battling Satan when he mainfests himself in physical form.

Funny, I do to.

When I get excited, you can even read what it is an acronym for.

Sounds more like a nightmare. Unless they were looking for extra good welfare bennies.

Also, am I the only one who thinks this Refaeli chick is merely a 7.5? I think Leo DiCaprio may actually be prettier than her!

Ah, he's probably gay anyway That's why he could write all that stuff on her without his hand trembling.

Didn’t the Ditsy twits do the same thing. I like how they say their words and deep deep thoughts are being repressed yet, they get to pose practically nude with their ‘musings’ for all to see.

No one stopped Sheryl Crowe from spouting off on her brilliant planet saving one square to spare for the hoi polloi to be forced to adopt while she gets to use the finest linens for her #1 & #2 duties.

Hypocrites all. I have a feeling things are coming to a head pretty fast.

Don't be silly! King will debut his next book on Hellen Thomas' body. Coincidentally it is titled "The Wraith of Craggy Bottom"...

Their bodies were photoshopped. The hefty one was signficantly trimmed.

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed"

One of the cooler starts to a good story, right up there with "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit"
