That's an old Rodney Dangerfield line.
But’s It’s Fun, and Interesting
After more testing, you guys came through. The original title The Theory of Reality was changed, then changed again. The cover design changed a couple times.
The Theory of Reality was judged to look too much like the Theory of Relativity, which would be death in sales. Casual browsers on Amazon would be frightened off. Have you bought a book about the special theory of relativity lately?
Then we tested The Theory of Separation. Many of you said it sounds like a book about marital issues, and the word Theory continued to scare people off. Sounded too scientific and technical.
The final decision on the title: The Circle of Awareness. Some have asked: what does that mean?
You will understand when you finish the book. That’s where you’ll be, in The Circle of Awareness. As Jimmy Sizemore says in the text, “It will change your life. Probably.”
A survey of all the popular Self-Help books showed that the majority have the author’s picture on the cover. Since this book is by Jimmy Sizemore, as told to Jim Flynn, artist Shaun Hutchinson had to generate a portrait of Jimmy Sizemore. As many of you guys know, Jimmy lives in Hawaii.
The Circle of Awareness will be ready for September launch. Work continues on the fourth JR Johnson book.
I have to go to the feed store now.
