Great News! Ananda featured in 3/22 Examiner.com article: “Novelist gives book marketing tips for fiction writers using social media”

Greeting All,

Great News! Nordette Adams, the African-American Books Examiner for Examiner.com, wrote an amazing article about yours truly today: “Novelist gives book marketing tips for fiction writers using social media.”

Nordette also interviewed me on the March 20th episode of We Got Word on BlogTalkRadio.  Click here to listen to the interview. We had a great time talking about healing fiction, my debut novel Love’s Troubadours – Karma: Book One, and social media tips for authors and bloggers.  I also discussed my new writing project Sisterhood, the Blog: Soundbytes from the 21st Century Women’s Online Revolution.

Enjoy your day and week!

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude,

Ananda

Ananda celebrates International Women’s Day with woman-centered poetry!

Happy Monday!  Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is really special for me.  International Women’s Day always reminds me of my trip to the U.N. Fourth World Conference on Women held in September 1995 in Beijing, China.  My trip to Beijing was one of the most powerful experiences in my life.  This morning, I discussed my trip during my author talk on BlogTalkRadio.  I also shared woman-centered poetry including two poems I wrote while attending the conference in China.  Click on the link to listen to a recording of my show (12 minutes): www.blogtalkradio.com/anandaleeke/2010/03/08/author-chat-with-ananda-leeke.

Who are your favorite women poets?

How are you celebrating International Women’s Day?

Enjoy your day and week!

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for women’s power, passion, and progress,

Ananda

Listen to my first Author Chat on BlogTalkRadio – Who are the love’s troubadours?

 

 

Happy Monday!

Today I hosted the first episode of my author chat series on BlogTalkRadio.  Click here to listen to the show: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/anandaleeke/2010/02/08/author-chat-with-ananda-leeke.   During the show, I discussed my debut novel Love’s Troubadours – Karma: Book One (www.lovestroubadours.com).  I also reflected on the question of the day – Who are love’s troubadours? – and how African American playwright Lorraine Hansberry inspired the novel series. Let me know what you think of the first episode (it is pretty short – 10 minutes).

By the way, Love’s Troubadours – Karma: Book One is available on Amazon.com. It makes for a great winter read and Valentine’s Day gift. Click here to order the book: http://tinyurl.com/yfxtqyq 

Thank you for your support!  Enjoy your day and week!

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Joy for knowing I am one of Love’s Troubadours (so are you!),

Ananda
