First thing I would check is the transmission fluid level and look for leaks. A low level will give you similar symptoms to what you are describing. Also check the linkage. But if the fluid level is fine, you might be looking at some trans work.

Could also be one or more of your brakes hung up. Check to see that ebrake is fully released.
