I am in the midst of doing some research on my next novel Love’s Troubadours – Symon: Book Two. It tells the story of Symon Allure, an African American man who spends his freshman year of college at Morehouse College (www.morehouse.edu) and later transfers to Howard University (www.howard.edu). During one of my recent online research sessions, I discovered a wonderful series of women’s heart health events that Morehouse School of Medicine (www.msm.edu) is sponsoring in February. See the information below.

Remember to wear red on National Wear Red Day which is February 5 to show support for women’s heart disease awareness.

Happy Monday All,
I spent last week in Atlanta. While I was in the ATL, I conducted research for my next novel, Love’s Troubadours – Symon: Book Two (2011) on the campus of Morehouse College. I also visited Spelman College and its Museum of Fine Art. Most of my research was captured on video with my Creative Vado camera. I will post the videos early next week.
I also attended Blogalicious (www.blogaliciousweekend.com), the first annual conference for women of color bloggers. It was AMAZING. I will write about the conference and share video interviews and clips from various sessions on Examiner.com this week. I already posted several videos from the conference on Ananda Leeke TV – www.youtube.com/anandaleeke.
Blogalicious inspired me to launch Ananda Leeke Live! on USTREAM, an online show that will give me an opportunity to talk directly with people about my books, artwork, creativity coaching practice, yoga and Reiki services, and social media expertise. The first show airs on November 1, 2009, at 3:00 p.m. EST. It will kick off my online book party for my new book, That Which Awakens Me: A Creative Woman’s Poetic Memoir of Self-Discovery (iUniverse, Inc., 2009).
