Businesswomen and local female leaders have united to share stories of success, love and power in the new release of Slaying Southwest Florida.

Twenty-five of Southwest Florida’s influencers have all contributed to the new novel, Slaying Southwest Florida. They celebrated its new release at a book launch party on Tuesday at the Alliance of the Arts in Fort Myers.

“What I looked for as women I saw standing out, it wasn’t number of followers. It wasn’t number of likes. We called it Slaying Southwest Florida because it means you’re leaving your mark,” said Leigh Clark, author and curator of the book.

“No matter how old or how young we are, we are ladies that we have overcome something that made us better. We are trying to make this world better,” said Marilyn Santiago, organizer of the event.
