STREET CHILD, A Memoir by Justin Reed Early

“The books the world calls immoral, are the books that show the world its own shame.” – Oscar Wilde “Street Child is not for the faint of heart” – THE SEATTLE TIMES Street Child is the shock-inspiring story of a young boy who escapes his increasingly dysfunctional and violent middle class home. Remanded into state custody at ten years old, he embarks on a journey through the foster care system only finding safety from unlikely skid-row heroes on downtown streets of Seattle and San Francisco – where children are victims and victims are considered criminals. While dodging serial killers and predators, including a juvenile court judge who oversees his custody, these children develop familial bonds while protecting each other in an increasingly dangerous – yet invisible world. By telling these authentic stories with often times devastating outcomes, he articulates the stark reality of life on the streets for countless young people. Many of the children in Street Child were featured in the movie STREETWISE which was nominated for an Academy Award. Street Child is a powerful and intimate depiction into these homeless children’s actual lives during their most desperate times of survival. Their sweet camaraderie, funny antics, and intimate relationships will move your heart and soul into a new understanding and personalization of their noble plight. Author Justin Reed Early cultivates hope while bringing new life to his childhood friends. The children portrayed are real and these stories are authentic. Street Child is a journey no child should ever have to endure.

Lily Sotelo just got the break of a lifetime choreographing for pop star Karina Black’s winter tour.

— Thomas A. Mesereau [MJ’s Defense Attorney]

MORE THAN a Michael Jackson Biography —
AN EMOTIONAL JOURNEY…

Today, in spite of volumes of printed material and a world of cyberspace about Michael Jackson, there is little published information about the real, flesh-and-blood man from first-hand witnesses. Until now.

Revealed in this biography are Michael’s last four mysterious years: where he and his children went, what he did, and how he spent his time.

An in-depth portrayal of Michael Jackson — the global “King of Pop” — Defending A King ~ His Life & Legacy discloses new information and unique insights into this “king of a man.” This book explains his torturous life with an emphasis on his triumphs over his adversities and challenges.

More controversial in life and in death than anyone else, Michael Jackson’s goodness has been mostly ignored. This volume needs to be affixed to the legacy of his genius and greatness.

“Bizarre circumstances demand bizarre behavior.” Dr. Moriarty leads her reader through the maze of stunningly bizarre circumstances in which Michael lived and struggled, through private joys and suffering as a real person … at the absolute pinnacle of human existence.

Best Chicken Breeds: 12 Types of Hens that Lay Lots of Eggs, Make Good Pets, and Fit in Small Yards (Booklet) by R.J. Ruppenthal

New on Amazon
Overview of the best chicken breeds for backyards, including full color pictures of each type. Learn which types of hens lay the most eggs, have friendly and calm personalities, and fit well in small city back yards. Written by the author of the best-selling Fresh Food From Small Spaces book, a former columnist for Urban Farm magazine. (Updated 2014 Version)

Topics Include:
” How This Information Can Help You
” Rainbow Eggs: White, Blue, Green, Dark Chocolate Brown, and More
” Importance of Hatching Eggs and Handling Chicks Early
” Each Chicken is an Individual
” Best Breeds: 12 types of hens that lay lots of eggs, have friendly and calm temperaments, and fit in city backyards
” Bonus: 5 Exotic Poultry Chicken Breeds for backyards: wait till you see these!
” Resources Section: Links to additional information on chicken breeds, plus where to obtain your chickens

Be Sure to Read This Before You Get Chickens
Thinking about getting chickens? Not sure what kind is best? If youre ready to learn which types of hens lay lots of eggs on a regular basis, make good pets, and fit happily in small sized yards, youve come to the right place. This e-booklet provides you with information on 12 types of chickens which are best suited for a small back yard flock.

Plus Bonus Section: 5 Exotic Breeds for Backyards
Also included is a bonus chapter covering 5 Exotic Poultry Chicken Breeds which are also suitable for backyards. If you’ve never seen a bird that looks like a chicken crossed with a turkey, another one with a head resembling a feather duster, a third that looks more like a rabbit than a chicken, a hen that lays dark chocolate brown eggs, and a one pound chicken 6-12 inches tall that people keep as an indoor pet, then prepare to meet some new friends! Amazingly, each of these has a friendly personality and all can make good pets.

Theres a lot of free information online about different kinds of chickens. Its great to have this available, but sorting through it can take a lot of time. When I decided to get chickens, I spent many hours researching different chicken breeds in books and on the Internet. At the time, I had a small yard in the city. The only thing I knew about chickens was that the hens lay the eggs and the roosters make most of the noise!

From my research, I learned that there are as many as 175 different kinds of chickens in the world. However, only 12 chicken breeds met my criteria, which were:

” Regular and prolific egg layers
” Comfortable in an enclosed coop and run area
” Preferably, not too loud
” Friendly around people

Save Time and Money
It would take you at least two or three hours just to find this information, even before you sort through, read, and analyze it. Instead, Ive put all the important stuff in this short booklet (which only appears longer because of all the chicken pictures, another essential element for people choosing breeds). Ive summarized the lengthy raw material from my own research, selected the best breeds for backyards, and presented this information in a format you can use.

Don’t Get the Wrong Kind of Chickens!
Be sure to read this booklet before you get chickens!
Don’t make the mistake of getting the wrong kind of chickens for your small yard. The wrong kinds can eat lots of food, get fat, and lay few eggs. They can be loud, aggressive, obnoxious, or scared of people. The right kinds will lay eggs almost every day, stay calm and quiet, let you pick them up and pet them, and will not mind being kept in a coop and fenced area!
