The Little Book of Inspiration is Danny Brown’s first non-business book of short stories.
This review won’t be like any others I’ve written, mostly because this book is unlike any others I’ve read… but also because I happen to be Mrs. Danny Brown.
I remember when Danny wrote this, and I had a hand in publishing it too. What a fun and different experience.
Danny wrote a series of short stories, or blog posts really over the course of a year. We at Morning Rain Publishing collected the best, most inspirational stories and put them together in print.
While re-reading this book, I remember reading each short story when he’d first written them so many years ago. I remember the days he’d come home from his long commute from work with an idea for a blog post that he just had to write.
The Stories Behind The Little Book of Inspiration
I remember the day he came up with the idea for the 12 for 12k project. I remember the year he worked his butt off making that come to fruition, and the wonderful people we met along the way who helped take on some of that work.
I remember the day our daughter almost died. Side note, she didn’t almost die that day. There was a close call, and a horrible fall that could have taken her life, but she came out with nothing but a bump. Of course, Danny has a permanent memory of that day, and he very openly writes about it in his book.
I remember the day that Danny wrote NeverLand – this was a poem written for me several years before. He still lived in the UK at that time, and I lived here. Online dating before online dating was even a thing – and Danny wrote me poems and sent them to me via snail mail.
I read the poem to my daughter last week, and she was disappointed to hear that she was NOT the inspiration for NeverLand… which only made me laugh.
This book is a beautiful read, even if you don’t share the same memories that I have with the author. I read it last week as part of my 2021 book challenge, read a book in a day.
Alright, I admit, I’ve also read several Dragon Masters books in a day because my daughter wants the whole family to read the series… but The Little Book of Inspiration is far more thought-provoking and realistic.
