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.

A Quick Update

I have often thought about starting another blog so I can talk about the things going on in my life. I've been dealing with more than the average bear with my mom and mother-in-law. The only reason I mention it is because I am taking a much needed vacation and going to a family reunion. It should be fun, a bunch of crazy irish relatives hanging out in a lake for four days. I wonder who will get the most sunburnt. We'll be telling stories on each other and reminiscing about those who have gone on ahead of us.

I'll also be without internet so I won't be able to upload my normal blogs - I hope to post my next guest on the 30th but I will be moving my mom from a 2nd floor apartment to a firs floor apartment that weekend so I'll have to see how that goes.

I should also get my edits from my publisher soon. Book 7 Stolen Desire is due out at the end of July. I don't have the cover yet, but I will post it as soon as I get it.  And my collection of shorts Love is... has been reformatted and re-released by Satin Romance - an imprint of Melange Books. I love this collection. It is my try at humor and from the reviews I've gotten on the different stories they tickled more than one funny bone.

I'm trying to finish the edits on book 8 - no title yet - so I can send that in and am working on the next book in my Vespian Way series. There are a few other things I'm working on, another fantasy for Melange, I need to drag out my werewolf story and edit it, and start working on my nonfiction fiction. I might start that at the family reunion. The book idea is all about the crazy things that my family has done or knows about.

Enjoy your Memorial Day!
