The same was true with "Gone with the Wind". After writing this phenomenonally successful saga whose popularity endures to this day, its author, Margaret Mitchell, never wrote another book. She stopped while she was ahead.
Maybe Sistah Souljah should've realized that readers gave her a pass on the poorly-written TCWE because its compelling story transcended its technical flaws, but that she pressed her luck with her second book. "Midnight" exposed her inadequacies as a writer because the story was crappy.
