Not all good covers see the light of day

This is one of my favorite covers which, sadly, didn’t make the final cut — and I’m not even sure why. It’s one of those psychic mysteries, I guess. Years before I took this cover on, I was in Fiji working with Tony Robbins when he had the big “ah-hah” moment of giving birth to the perfect title for his forthcoming book. What was that title? Awaken the Giant Within. And since that runaway bestseller hit the streets, it’s pretty amazing how many books come our way entitled Awaken the xxx Within. Just another psychic mystery of the Universe.
