What You Need to Know About Me:
NEW URBAN FICTION NOVEL: 'GETTING OUT THE GAME' After losing his father at age six, Javon Taylor, known in the streets as J., is forced to play the game without guidance. The youngest of three boys, Javon embraced a different, much darker childhood from that of his older brother’s. J. finds a letter written by his father retracing his hazardous lifestyle in the streets of Baltimore leading to his addiction to drugs and alcohol, and ultimately causing him to go mentally insane. Making friends came easy to J., but after moving around his entire life he develops a reserved thuggish demeanor, while vowing to never love, trust or commit to anyone or anything. Trapped between the grind of a natural born hustler and a natural born athlete, Javon and his boys must overcome a childhood surrounded by sex, broken homes, drugs, alcohol, gangs, crime, guns, murder and prison. Playing football gave Javon an opportunity to earn a college education and play professional football, but first he and his boys must trust God and get out the game. OFFICIAL BOOK REVIEW: "Getting Out The Game reminds me of "Manchild in the Promised Land" by Claude Brown. I believe it has the same potential." -Assaunta Collins, Asta Publications OFFICIAL BOOK REVIEW: http://darevew. com/gettingout. html "GETTING OUT THE GAME" is for anyone who grew up or raised children in an enrivonment that glorified hustler's, pimps, playas, sex, criminals, money, hood comedians, athletes, greed, murder, court and prison. Even though many families and communities honor GOD as their savior, the Devil is always lurking waiting to attack. ORDER YOUR COPY TODAY! I enjoy the art of storytelling, reliving forgotten and forbidden sins. I want to share my experiences with readers who may have grew up without their fathers or mothers, searching their entire life for a positive role model, or single parents raising children against all odds... I take the reader on a journey through the eyes of misguided youth taking dangerous paths while trying to find their calling in life. If my book only helps one person, I feel it will have served GOD's purpose.In High School I was one of two students in my school to be invited to attend an Institute for Talented and Gifted Students. I graduated from Howard University. As a teenager, I wrote and illustrated children's self published books such as; "Freddy Tries Out for the Flyers", "Superheroes in the Ghetto" and illustrated "A Day at the Apple Orchard" by Ms. B. Moore. "GETTING OUT THE GAME" started as an idea many years ago, then I developed a plan and took action. ORDER NOW!!ONLINE AMAZON.COM Log onto;
