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: I feel like ranting

I have these days when I just want to scream. things don't go right. Maybe it's the weather and maybe it's me. Not sure why it seems to build up and build up until I hit a point where I want to explode.

Thank goodness I have writing to fall back on when this happens. I think I might just go mad if I didn't. I can step out of this world for a few hours and escape to the world I created. I think this is one of the reasons why I don't write the deep dark stories.

I want a good book that makes me smile.  I want to read a book that makes me want to go back to it because I love the larger than life characters, and the wonderful interaction between them. I look for humor, a good plot and I like to think I put all that in my books.

I want my reader to escape from the world that drives them crazy.
