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.

New Release

Now the craziness starts...I have the new cover of my Vespian Way series. I also have a pen name - Bethany Drake. I have enough trouble writing on this blog so I'm not sure if I'll create a new one, but I'll keep you posted as I get caught up on everything...I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel...

New Release info!

I'm excited to say that I have a lot of news to tell you.

First, as I told you guys a while ago I pulled all my books from Phaze.

Satin Romance, and imprint of Melange Books has accepted three of my titles.

A Portrait in Time is available for prerelease now with the full release on September 25th. I'll post links as soon as I have them.
Here's the cover!

Love on the Run, the sequel to A Portrait in Time, will be available between mid-October  and beginning of November. I have the cover now.

A Quest for Love will be released as well and I'll post the cover as soon as I get it.

In other exciting news I have found a home for my Desire series. Blushing Books has accepted the first two books and I'm getting ready to send in the next two.

They have also accepted a new manuscript called the Tears of the Queen.

I know I've still been quiet but I have been plugging away. I'm excited to say I have found a home for my desire series plus I have a new book coming out through Blushing Books. The new book is called Tears of the Queen and is a urban fantasy.

A Portrait in Time will be re-released soon. I have the new cover and still waiting for the release date. I'm so happy to know I could find another home for it. When I read through the book after all these years I was pleasantly surprised. I did a good job considering it was my first.

I know I mentioned about me caring for my mom but I didn't mention that she has dementia. One of the reasons why I'll continue to be sporadic in posting. Over all Mom is good, she is cognizant and can do a lot by herself. But I've been busy making sure I have everything ready for when she can't make decisions on her own. 

I hope to get back to hosting authors and advising new writers but right now I'm living day by day trying to get everything back in order so I can fet things back to normal.
