- Attorney's new book touches on work-life balance, office dating and office politics -

(BLACK PR WIRE) — Miami, Fla. April 1, 2013 — Award-winning attorney Shavon Jones will have a launch party on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 to mark the release of the print edition of Working Girls: Money, Power & Love, an intriguing story about four friends struggling to balance work, life and love. Working Girls is a timely application of the principles discussed in Sheryl Sandberg’s women’s leadership manifesto Lean In. Acclaimed biographer Blair S. Walker (Why Should White Guys Have all the Fun: How Reginald Lewis Created a Billion-Dollar Business Empire) will give introductory remarks.

“Shavon Jones doesn’t shy away from the thorny issues that can sometimes accompany work-life. Working Girls tackles the intersections of racial, gender, and sexual politics with an honesty that is not often found in her genre,” said reviewer Bridget Todd who teaches at Howard University. “I wanted the book to be relatable so that the readers would see some of themselves in the characters,” said Jones.

Fittingly, the launch party is being held at Southstreet Restaurant, a popular woman-owned establishment in the Design District section of Miami. The party is from 6:30 until 9 pm. Valet and metered street parking are available. Dress is Jazzy. For tickets visit

Working Girls is available at all online retailers including Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Shavon’s tips for managing stressful lives also appear in the April issue of Key Biscayne Magazine.
