The Reason Behind “We Love Jenni”

Posted on Feb 28 2013 - 10:13pm by Melanie Love

Riverdale Avenue Books has recently released the unauthorized biography of superstar Jenni Rivera, who tragically died in a plane crash this past year.


The publisher of “We Love Jenni”, Lori Perkins released a statement as to why she felt inspired to publish this book and although not a romance novel, it is one filled with love, at least by her millions of saddened friends who need a copy of this book.

Here is what Lori had to say:

Why I Published We Love Jenni….

I came of age in the feminist era, and still live by the feminist adage, “the personal is political.” It has been my guiding mantra.

It is also the reason why I wanted to publish WE LOVE JENNI: An Unauthorized Biography of Jenni Rivera by NY Times best-selling author Marc Shapiro and Charlie Vasquez.

Jenni Rivera was an everywoman. I felt like she was my sister-in-law or my cousin through marriage. She was so real and her life, the ups and downs, was so open for all to see. It’s what made her music and her TV show so powerful.

I also consider her an important voice of empowerment for Hispanic women in a machismo culture. I loved her.

I was so saddened to see her die so tragically and so early. I thought she was going to be America’s Hispanic neighbor next door with her forthcoming ABC sitcom.

So that is why I am so proud to be the publisher of the first mainstream pop culture biography of Jenni, which I hope brings Jenni’s life and music, and message to an entirely new audience. I want readers to pick up this book about this Mexican-American singer they didn’t know, and come away feeling that they want to buy all her music, watch a marathon of her show, and keep her alive in their hearts.
