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.

Ramdom Thoughts: And the New Year Begins

Glad to know we made it past the end of the Mayan calendar. Now we start the new year. I'm excited to see 2013. I have a good feeling about it. My series doesn't seem to be stopping - I'm already thinking about book eight while finishing the edits on book six and writing book seven. I'm excited to see where this series will take me.

Personally, my family is in good health, and finances are starting to look better so I might be able do a few of the things I haven't been able to do in a few years, like going to the Romantic Times conference.  I haven't been able to do that because, like so many others, we got hit by the newest recession or whatever the gov't called it and am just starting to peek up above the water. I was treading hard there to keep everything afloat for a while and got to say it got tiring.

Overall though I feel blessed. Been married for almost twenty-eight years, we celebrate that milestone at the end of the month, and still in love. I have an eighteen year old in college who is the joy of my life. Strong relationships with my family. 

Life is good.
