Medina Talks About New Book and Media Leaks


monica-on-white-carpet.jpgNew York, NY: Monica Medina is a radio personality, writer (and poet who has opened for John Legend), motivational speaker, producer and lots more. Some of you may know her from her occasional commentaries on XM Satellite radio or from her own popular radio show on the FM dial. “I’m currently working on my debut book coming out next year.”, Medina says. Many people ask me, “What is the book going to be about? For now, I have to keep the details of my book top secret until I’m permitted to speak about it.” Medina states that the book is not what folks are expecting but readers will thoroughly enjoy it. “I have not shared with anyone what the book will be about. Those who did ask, got a “bogus” answer from me. However, those who thought they knew what the book would be about leaked information to the media. So I’m laying low, until I get the green light.”
