Okay so it looks like I fell off the planet. Promise - I'm still here. The last two years have been ... hard. There's no other word for it. Everything is fine. I'm fine, but I've been the caregiver of my Mother-in-law and now I'm taking care of my mom. Between her needs, work, etc I seem to have lost control of my time. I am still writing and have made a few hard decisions.

I pulled my books from Mundania and have decided to to try to sell them through other publishers. I'm happy to say the 1st three books I sold to HSWF (now owned by Mundania) have been picked up by Melange Books and will be released through their Satin Books imprint. The rest I'm still working on.

I'll probably still be sporadic. Unless I win the lottery and can hire someone to help me I can't avoid it, but know I'm still here still working hard in the background and am hoping to do better at keeping my blog alive.


Tink...tink...tink...anyone out there? Hi! I'm Barbara Donlon Bradley - Author - editor and slightly crazy - ask anyone in my family. I hope to use this blog to talk about writing, editing and whatever pops in my head. Hope you enjoy.

Random Thoughts: The Mayan Calendar

So the Mayan calendar ends today. It's the winter solstice and the galactic alignment. Big day for our planet and the galaxy.

I've been watching this stuff with a childlike wonder. What if? You know that is one of my favorite questions. It's what drives me to write the SF/Futuristic stories I do. I love it when science and old world beliefs merge. Too cool for words.

My mind is wondering what will happen. Will it be what the doomsday sayers are predicting? If so will the human race survive? My personal question is will I have power to use my laptop so I can continue to write? Or will I have to go to pen and paper. I'm ready either way.

Or will it be a shift in the way the planet sees things. The law of attraction and a world of enlightenment? I'm a bit of an optimist so I lean this way. My son has a wonderful imagination. He's hoping for superpowers where he can control fire. Personally, I want teleportation and an infinite life if I get a choice. Wonder if there will there be a line?

The great part is that the waiting is almost over. Oh, by the way Dec 21st is on the calender so we might have to wait until Dec 22nd for anything to happen.
