Over the years, my professional journey has gone from being a small animal veterinarian (15 years) to co-founding Life On Purpose Institute with my wife, 20 years. During that time I've also been a professional writer (over 350 magazine articles published) and now my focus is on writing mostly speculative fiction (science fiction and fantasy) for young people as W. Bradford Swift and for adults as Orrin Jason Bradford. Check out my current selection on Amazon at: Author.to/wbswift

UPDATE: I've added a video to my profile in case anyone is wondering what it's like to be an author in his 60s.

I'm in Raleigh playing in the NC State Senior Games Softball tournament in Cary this weekend. (Won both our game today). Was shocked and pleased to turn on the TV and see Enloe playing Broughton in Enloe's homecoming. Wow! Go Enloe...Beat Broughton!
Playing in the finals for the 65+ division starting at 9 am at Thoms Brooks Park in Cary.

Hello Fellow Classmates,
Most of you will not find what I'm about to share of interest, and I won't be hurt if you don't read to the bottom. But if you enjoy reading, especially if you enjoy science fiction, or your just curious what my third and last career as an indie author is like, read on. Otherwise, please excuse this group message since I couldn't figure out how to send this to individuals. Here's the thing.

I'm having a PARTY & not just any party. It’s a BOOK LAUNCH PARTY

I am having a very special party and I want you to be a part of it. I am launching my new book, FreeForm: Mission Resumed. This book is deserving of a party because FreeForm: Mission Resumed is the last book of a HUGE book project I've been working on for the past two years which was to merge two techno-thriller trilogies together into one mega-six book series: The Saga of the Dandelion Expansion. FreeForm: Mission Resumed is the last book of The Saga of the Dandelion Expansion. I would love to have you celebrate the launch with me.

You see, I view this last book as the keystone that will tie all the other books together (see attached image) so I wanted to do something really special to bring this book and the whole series to life and into the world. I will be announcing it to the world through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign and with you.

If you are unfamiliar with Kickstarter crowdfunding then let me explain. It is a way for people to support writers, songwriters, artists, and others in their dreams and endeavors in exchange for some nifty rewards. I am using Kickstarter crowdfunding as one way to support and make this dream of mine come true. Whether you choose to participate as a backer or not is up to you.

No, You Don't Need to Live in Flat Rock to Party with Me!

The plan is to host a live launch party here in my home on January 8th. But I realize not all my loyal readers and friends can be there for that party so I'm going to have a second ONLINE PARTY later that day, so:

Mark Your Calendar for MONDAY, JANUARY 8, @ 7 PM EASTERN. Come share some 'cyber-champagne' with me!

I would love for you to come and be a part of this exciting event with me on Kickstarter Live at: http://bit.ly/FreeFormKS .

P.S. The link isn't live yet but will get you to the online party on Monday evening a little before 7 pm eastern. If you can't make that time, you can still check out the Kickstarter campaign at this URL after 3 pm on Monday:

Hey Bro, Happy belated Birthday. Hope you had a great day. I'm curious is you ever read SF or fantasy and if so, do you happen to ever read ebooks. If so, I'd like to send you one of my books -- your choice. You can take a look at them here: Author.to/wbswift. And if not, that's fine as well. Just wanted you to know I'm thinking about my old friend.

I want to thank all the organizers for their hard work to bring so many of us together after all these decades. And thanks to my fellow classmates for making my wife and I feel so welcome. Ann has been raving all morning about how much fun she's had the past two days. I wonder how long we'll have access to this wonderful website so we can continue to stay connected. Also, I'd love to stay connect via Facebook if anyone else happens to use it. My pages are: https://www.facebook.com/bradonpurpose (personal page) and my author's page is https://www.facebook.com/wbradfordswift/. I know some have chosen not to use Facebook and that's fine.
