New York, NY (PRWEB) August 17, 2006
Castina Charles establishes herself as the new force in the poetic movement, with the publication of "Baad Ass Poetry" in conjunction with Lulu (http://www.lulu.com), the world's fastest growing provider of print on demand books.
"Baad Ass Poetry" is a collection of poems which delves into themes such as female empowerment, cultural pride, African American militancy, and sexuality. Her style is at times witty, deliciously ironic, fiercely militant, and undeniably sexy.
Castina Charles wrote Baad Ass Poetry to contribute, as well as inspire the growing body of black feminist discourse. She came to Lulu, because she wanted to be in control of the publishing process and found Lulu's print-on-demand tools to be fast, easy, and most importantly. free. "Baad Ass Poetry" is available for purchase at http://www.lulu.com.
"I believe self-publishing to be crucial for any author interested in maintaining autonomy over his/her work" said Castina Charles. "With Lulu, the means to achieve this has become much more simplified."
