While I was writing my latest Ebook 12 Precious Anecdotes from Life, I continually pondered upon choosing an unconventional title that would give a hint to the content of my book as well as arise curiosity in the minds of readers interested in reading such genres as Inspirational Fiction-Short Story Collections. My book consists of 12 short stories that give 12 messages to readers. As they read the stories, they can grasp the inherent messages that show up in the pages. Each one is a precious message that all readers can easily relate to in their own life. Each message promises to ignite a spark of goodness, positivity, humaneness and a feel-good emotion through the intriguing and thoughtful stories. The messages in that book are precious to me, so I came up with such a title for the book.
