EEW Magazine Names the Best Business Book of the Year

Spotlight on Marshawn Evans's New Book, S.K.I.R.T.S in the Boardroom.

Newark, DE, December 19, 2008 --( Entertainment Attorney and Founder of MEU Consulting, a corporate life-enrichment consulting firm, Marshawn Evans, is receiving high honors from EEW Magazine, the #1 online magazine for African American Christian women. Evans's new book, S.K.I.R.T.S in the Boardroom, has been named EEW Magazine's “Best Book of the Year” by the publication's Nominations Committee. The competition was open exclusively to first-time, African American Christian women authors and the winner was selected from a pool of more than 1,000 authors.

EEW Magazine is already accepting new submissions for its 2010 top pick.

“It was a very tough choice,” say Marvina Jackson, Nominations Committee Director. New authors from all across the United States threw their hats in the ring. “But there could only be one winner,” says Jackson who was responsible for overseeing all aspects of the review and nomination process.

“We received lots of quality submissions,” says Dianna Hobbs, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of EEW Magazine, which currently boasts more than ¼ million subscribers and nearly 6.5 million hits per month.“But Marshawn Evans's book is relevant to our readers and so needful right now, especially for the demographic God has entrusted to us.”

EEW Magazine caters to African American Christian women ages 25-55.

According to EEW Magazine executives, rapidly growing numbers of African American women are interested in starting their own businesses now, particularly since millions of US jobs have been lost and more layoffs are expected.

“In such tough economic times we've received hundreds of emails from EEW Magazine readers requesting advice on how to start, grow, and manage their businesses,” says Jackson. “We think Marshawn Evans's book, S.K.I.R.T.S in the Boardroom, can provide some great answers.

S.K.I.R.T.S in the Boardroom focuses on key strategies for women seeking to survive in the tough world of business and corporate America—which can be especially difficult for women of color.

“I think women can draw from the wealth of knowledge and experience Marshawn shares in her book,” says Hobbs. “They're sure to enjoy the exclusive in the January 09 issue.”

Marshawn Evans is to be featured on the cover of the January/February 2009 issue of EEW Magazine.
