LOS ANGELES, CA – Maxine Jones, former member of the legendary group En Vogue, gives insight into the world of girl groups in her upcoming book “A SMART GIRLS GUIDE TO GIRL GROUPS.”
This poignant book reads like an autobiography and instructional manual fused into one. It lays out the hard work, disappointments, excitement, and glamour of being a member of a girl group. Maxine offers a no holds barred view of the inner-workings of a successful group and what it takes to build a career and how quickly it can all be lost.
As a member of one of the most successful girl groups in history, Maxine knows firsthand what it takes to make it in the business of entertainment. For years she has been quietly organizing her thoughts and writing down memories and experiences so she can share and hopefully guide other women who want to be a part of a very exclusive sisterhood that many strive for, but few manage to achieve; the super hot, super successful , chart topping “Girl Group.”
Maxine recounts her life before joining the iconic group En Vogue, and how it changed with success. She can now in hindsight see the pitfalls of stardom and the dysfunction amongst the group members that if handled differently could have possibly avoided the heartbreaking demise of a group that at its height was arguably one of the biggest groups in the world.
Offering up clever antidotes, funny and sometimes sad memories, Maxine captures the adrenaline rush of building a super group and the harsh reality of the lust, lies and jealousy that ultimately tore it apart. She is completely transparent about the music business and what it takes to make it to the top of the charts. The inflated egos and deflated since of self-worth are some of the issues touched on in the book. She doesn’t hold back the physical and mental strain of being a member of a group, but she also shares inspiring thoughts and uplifting advice to help the next generation of female sensations trail a path to success.
“A SMART GIRLS GUIDE TO GIRL GROUPS,” will be published world-wide by Welstar Publications, LLC and is set for a summer 2017 release. The work will be released in paperback & eBook by Welstar Publications, LLC in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and India, and rights are in negotiation with publishers in nine countries.
“This story is a once-in-a-lifetime dream come true,” said Horace Batson, Ph.D., publisher of Welstar Publications, LLC. “We feel that readers and fans alike will identify with Maxine Jones and have an amazing opportunity to see the music industry through her eyes in this incredible journey.”
An instructional guide designed to help up-and-coming talent avoid the pitfalls, obstacles and implosions that plague all infamous girl groups “A SMART GIRLS GUIDE TO GIRL GROUPS,” partners all the elements of a juicy novel with the knowledge and experience of a true diva.

Rev. Zackery said the partnership with the City of Compton, Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles were critical as they trained volunteer attorneys to assist with the record expungements. She also applauded the collaborative work that involved other ministries like Charles Gibson Ministries and the more than 40 Attorneys and students who came from UC Irvine School of Law.
The day started with a hot breakfast and quickly moved into the business of clearing up Criminal Record Petitions & Prop 47 and Prop 64 applications. There were even live scan opportunities taking place onsite for persons who did not pre-register.
Organizers say another expungement clinic is being planned for June 2017.
