I noticed that this movement has intensified, It’s really gaining momentum with people more than before. We now have 80 authors from the three books alone.

Under an energizing atmosphere, "Today’s Inspired Latina Volume III" May 11 Book Launch in Rolling Meadows drew over 500 attendees who waited to meet and hear from 26 Latinas authors from all walks of life.

These new authors join an exclusive sisterhood of Latinas whose stories exemplify the struggles and triumphs in their careers and family lives. Jackie Camacho-Ruiz, director of JJR Marketing, Inc. and publisher of "Today’s Inspired Latina Volume I, II and III," invited the authors to express their gratitude on stage to an engaged audience.

“I felt honored presenting these authors,” Camacho-Ruiz said. “I was blessed and amazed to see the outpouring of interest and love for these remarkable women.”

Volume III’s authors come from Chicago, Hoffman Estates, Lisle, Berwyn and Cicero while others hail from New York, New Jersey, Colombia and Mexico. The Volume III authors are: Minué Yoshida, Belisa Perez, Tamika Lecheé Morales, Margarita Duque, Lupita Tovar, Doris N. Ayala, Linda E. Alberty, Irma Siboney González, Mariela G. Camacho-Kimble, Dolly Zea, Cynthia Gomez, Jeanette V.Miranda, Karina Garden Jimenez, Zory Martínez Jaen, Leticia Madrigal, Daisy Jimenez, Alejandra Chaparro, Liliana Perez, Yanni Sánchez García, Imelda (Mely) Shine, Sarah Sanford, Carmiña Cortes, Itzel Ifatola Luna, Lorena Labastida, Ximena Atristain Bigurra and Dolores Monterroso.

As in previous "Today’s Inspired Latina" books, the series highlights Latina authors throughout the United States and around the world as they share their stories of overcoming adversity, achieving their own goals and becoming emerging community leaders. In the last two years of the book launches, the events have drawn more than 1,000 guests.

Camacho-Ruiz envisions her book series as a growing international movement as many more Latinas step forward with their own life stories. Because of this strong response, she plans to debut "Today’s Inspired Latina Volume IV" next year.

“I noticed that this movement has intensified,” she explained. “It’s really gaining momentum with people more than before. We now have 80 authors from the three books alone.”

Camacho-Ruiz thanks the many sponsors and media partners who participated in the book launch: Farmers Insurance, Brazil Express Churrasco Grill, Negocios Now, Entre Nosotros, Radionet.TV and “The Luz and Dolly Show.”

Part of "Today’s Inspired Latina Volume III" book’s proceeds benefit The Fig Factor Foundation, a 501©3 that help unleash the amazing in young Latina women.
