Sometimes the urge to write is so strong that you can’t wait for a publisher to show the world the masterpiece in your mind.

Thankfully in the digital age it’s easy to self publish but who exactly is going to read a book titled “This Hoe Got Roaches Up in Her Crib?”

Today, Rachel Hall joins us to take a look at trashy books, morality tales and science fiction from the perspective of great and not so great black authors.
