The author's descriptions are vivid. The writing is evocative. Much like Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye and Bebe Moore Campbell’s What You Owe Me, Medley's creations create layered spellbinding stories about human behavior. They also provide safe havens to have serious conversations about relationships, integrity, faith, and even church!
Do you have a literary offering you've wanted to finish and/or perhaps you just don't know how to get it started? Well Medley's One-on-One Coaching Consultant and/or Ghostwriting Services may be your answer. It is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
STEP 1: First, schedule a consultation to determine which you need -- a Ghostwriter or One-on-One Coaching Sessions (to get your project on track and flourishing in a professional and productive manner).
STEP 2: Second, determine your budget -- Ghostwriting Services range from $850 - $1200, monthly. One-on-One Coaching offers hourly rates for as little as 2 - 8 hours per week at affordable investment rates.
STEP 3: Finally, once you have completed the steps above, Medley will discuss with you the pros and cons of being traditionally published and/or self-published. Yes, there is much to discuss about both. Learn the facts to make a fruitful choice about your publishing avenues. Also learn the benefits of communing with like-minded people by participating in the Life Journeys Writers Guild's workshops designed to keep your creative juices flowing as well as informed. Join the LJWG and network with a diverse group of literary artists.
Your level of commitment is worth the desired outcome!

MEDLEY at THE PRATT...
It was a Literary Celebration and a part of the Writer's Live! Series that took place on
Wednesday, November 13, 2013
6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Yvonne J. Medley discussed the riveting and personal backstory details—of her latest novel release, titled, Jubi Stone: Saved by the Vine, the prequel (released July, 2013, Kensington) to Medley’s debut novel, God in Wingtip Shoes (Released April, 2012, Kensington).
"A Word on Jubi and Raising awareness about Domestic Violence, to which this novel is dedicated. Jubi Stone: Saved by the Vine addresses the Domestic Violence issue in several streams. During one of those streams the character, Jubi Stone, suffers a sexual assault at age 14 as well as an immediate devastating aftermath (an eight-month hidden pregnancy and a stillborn birth) That's my story. I've put myself out there in a way that I had never planned. I've dedicated this book to being a safe place to have serious conversations about faith, family, communication, church and sex (really, that's the point of everything I write, but this one takes it up a notch). I am hopeful and prayerful to be informative, sharing, and to keep standing throughout this ongoing commitment. This one is personal! And it is my hope to give silent victims a survivor's voice." Yvonne J. Medley
The special evening also included a book signing and a dramatic skit of Jubi Stone's Chapter One, performed by Womb Work Productions, Inc. of Baltimore. And it all took place at the prestigious and historic Enoch Pratt Free Library.
