In 2009, I tried to have a book release party for 'A Ho Needs to Stay in a Ho's Place' at a popular bar in downtown Detroit and was told no because management felt the title was disrespectful. The Palms on Fenkell Ave which had just opened welcomed me and we shut the place down. The club AND the parking lot was packed. My MySpace friends showed up and showed out! 😂😂😂

Local bookstores wouldn't carry the book because of the title. Only two supported me and that was Michel Moore from Hood Book and Ice from Harlem World. 

A bestselling author told me books only have a two year shelf life and with my title I'll probably have less than that.

Whelp here we are in 2016 gearing up for the movie premiere of Stay in Your Place which was inspired by the book and I'm on my way to the post office to ship off autographed copies of the same book. Don't allow people to put you in a box. Boxes have walls therefore they have restrictions. When you're on the freeway and your exit is closed, you don't back up or sit still. Maybe that exit wasn't the route you were supposed to take. Keep going forward until you find YOUR exit. #GetItDone #RecalculateYourRoute #StayInYourPlace
