•         the key business skills illustrated in the book

•         the questions from readers club guide at the end of the book (e.g., having children early in one’s career versus later; how work friendships affect professional interaction; how romantic relationships proceed when the primary breadwinner is the female; etc.)

Contest Rules: College professors may enter at ( or by sending an email request to intern at by January 31, 2013. The chat will take place during the Spring 2013 term. The chat may be in person or via Skype, depending on the school's location, and may be recorded by the author. The professor and students should have read Working Girls: Money, Power & Love in preparation for the Author Chat.  

The book is available at ( and other booksellers. “Each of the characters, male and female, is a mixture of 3 or 4 different people so everyone is bound to see some of themselves in the book,” said Shavon Jones, author of Working Girls: Money, Power & Love. Michigan attorney, wife and mother, Tiffany Torain agreed saying Working Girls “is a great book – relatability and fantasy all in one book” while Miami-based Fortune 100 Executive Nicole Turner called it “an entertaining and informative portrayal of the stylish lives of modern career women.”

Working Girls: Money, Power and Love is an Indie entry into the growing Working Girl Lit genre which has had huge successes like Lauren Weisberger’s The Devil Wears Prada (2003) and Jennifer Weiner’s The Next Best Thing (2012). Working Girls is set in a fictional Fortune 100 Company from about 1990 to the present. In the story, the four heroines’ careers take divergent paths. One climbs the corporate ladder and competes for the CEO position, another quits to launch an entrepreneurial venture, a third decides to start a family, and the fourth enters into an adulterous relationship with her boss.
