New eBook: Advent Messages of Hope for Harried and Hurting People by Patricia Cole Williams

Just published by Abbott ePubilshing: "Advent Messages of Hope for Harried and Hurting People" by Patricia Cole Williams

During the Christmas season, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of shopping, wrapping presents and baking cookies that one forgets the true meaning of the holiday - to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

The Advent season is designed to refocus our lives on Christ. In this beautiful and moving eBook, Patricia Cole Williams presents a detailed package of prayers meditations that do just that.

From the introduction:

"Frankly, the whole idea of the holidays is so exhausting to many people that they dread what should be the most wonderful time of the year. Instead of looking forward in eager hope and exultant expectation, people are grumpy, unhappy, broke, focused on everything that’s wrong in their lives and families and the world. Really, it’s just too much for most of us. Many people would rather skip the holidays. Or they manage to soldier through, knowing that eventually January will come, bringing with it calm and ordinary days. I propose we stop."

This wonderful eBook is just $1.99!

The Sense: A Free Selection from the "A Flash of Worlds" eBook

Below is the Flash Fiction story "The Sense" - a selection from "A Flash of Worlds," an eBook of flash fiction stories by Stephen Abbott, published by Abbott ePublishing.

The Sense...

I first noticed my special sense when I was 12. The vision of a dog’s wail was like a wave washing over me. I was in my front yard and quickly called my mutt Fido. But as he ran to me, I heard the simultaneous clang of the trolley’s bell and the wail of my neighbor’s dog, Ralphie.

My eyes shot to the street, and thankfully, Ralphie had only had his tail sliced through by the trolley’s wheels. We renamed him “Lucky.”

The incidents continued throughout my youth. A person’s laugh in the cinema, the breaking of a glass, a horse throwing a shoe - I saw them all, seconds before they happened. I kept this all to myself.

One morning, I saw the newspaper headline and my father’s cry of outrage in my head even before I had made it down the stairs to the breakfast table. We were all shocked and angered by the sinking of the Lusitania, and soon, we were at war, and I was a doughboy, headed to France.

The journey was rough, and I was sick. Seeing myself sick in advance was not helpful, nor pleasant. We were marched to the front, and we relieved a weary division of Frenchmen who were at once happy to see us and resentful of the “Yanks” who, we were told, thought we knew everything.

One morning, as I was making my way through the labyrinth of trenches to deliver a message to a French general, the sense came over me, though it was at first unclear what was to happen. I entered a room carved into the trenches and the hair on my neck bristled. As I began to make my way down the stairs, I quickly turned, grabbed my colleague, and yelled “Get down!,” pushing him to the ground. Just then, the room erupted in fire as a shell hit from the ceiling, crushing several underneath the rubble.

As word of the incident, and my role in it, spread, I was taken to another hand-carved room along the trenches - “To await interrogation,” I was told by my French guard. The tall, arrogant French officer who soon arrived demanded to know what had happened, and why I had foreseen it. Was I a spy? I was asked. No, I replied, as I sat before him.

His long sword seemed wildly out of place in the trenches, and I saw a blurred vision of it knocking a glass from the table in front of me. As he turned, it happened, and I reached out to grab it before it fell.

He was stunned. My hands were bound behind me in the chair, and a French soldier hit me in the stomach. “Did you see that coming?” he said. “Yes,” I replied, “But I could do nothing to stop it.”

Just then, I saw another vision, and was pleased at the face I thought I recognized in the haze. “This will soon be all sorted out,” I said. “The general himself is arriving.”

“What general?,” the officer snarled, just as he looked up to see the door open with a sweating aide-de-camp exclaiming something hurriedly in French.

Following the now stiffly saluting aide was General “Black Jack” Pershing himself, who had heard of my heroics and was concerned for my welfare. The general and I soon left the room, and after a celebratory drink with him I will never forget, I was sent back to my comrades with a story I was accused of making up.

But evidence soon followed. My comrades were amazed at the lieutenants and captains who made daily trips to my division, asking for my pre-cognitions of their units’ fates. I couldn’t help them, of course, since the vision only happened to things and people around me, not in their divisions, miles away. The visits slowed.

Then one day, as I prepared to go on a raid of the enemy’s position, another captain arrived with some foolish question or another. Just then, I had the most powerful vision I had ever seen. The captain saw the changed look on my face, and asked what I had just seen.

I told him, “I am about to go over the top, and my right arm is going to be blown to bits,” I said. “And you are going to be hit by a shell and be killed where you stand.”

And you know what? I was right again.

A new chapter in your working life could begin TODAY!

Unemployment is higher than it’s been in 25 years. And to top it all off, it's been very hard to find a decent, good paying job. But there are some jobs that are really, really easy to start, with little cash, and offer the hope of not only being one’s own boss, but being able to make a bit of money in these depressed economic times.

Despite what the economists say, people still need basic services and are willing to pay a reasonable price for them. Sometimes, if marketed correctly, with a high level of personal service, and the price is right, even NON-basic luxury services can "sell" in this economy.

Passion is perhaps the most key element to starting your business. As founder and social media guru Gary Vaynerchuk says, "When you build a business around a passion, that's when you really hit it out of the park."

Abbott ePublishing's "Forty Ways to Make a FORTUNE with MicroBusinesses" outlines 40 such “instant” service business ideas that are well-suited to this economy, and are super-easy to set up.

Each of these jobs are simple to start, depending on your level of skill and ability to focus on the start-up with drive, vision and passion.

Check out "Forty Ways..." at Abbott ePublishing today. For just $1.99, you can't go wrong, and you could even be starting a new chapter in your working life TODAY!
