Half-baked Holidays:
A Romantic Comedy Holiday Collection

 

Special Personal Introduction:

Why write a romantic comedy holiday collection, you wonder?

Well, first of all, if you asked me what my favorite holiday is, the answer would be easy.

And complicated.

Because with absolute certainty, I most adore Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Why the duality?

Both vibrate with the magic of romance. In equal measure.

Exquisite and addictive. Exciting and heartwarming. Brimming with wonder and hope.

And if we’re lucky, that incredible magic enchants us, entwines itself around us, and never lets us go.

The most wonderful time of the year definitely spun its powerful magic on us: Stone and I were married the day after Christmas.

We sent out elegant iridescent red-white-and-green poinsettia wedding invitations.

Had a small ceremony (Stone refused to shake the hand of someone he didn’t know).

Annnd… the hip-hop beats of Run-DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis” streamed on a tiny black boombox.

At the wedding.

Not kidding.

So with off-kilter humor deeply entrenched in our own holiday romance, it’s easy to see why we believe romantic comedy deserves VIP seating at the holiday romance event.

And of course, there’s no shortage of tasty ingredients…

All the delectable seasonal trappings: nostalgic songs, festive food and drink, sparkling decorations, ribbon-tied wrappings, and bright fluffy snow.

But dig a little deeper, and we also find all kinds of scrumptious emotion. Tender hope. Grumbly defiance. Aching love.

Whip into the recipe a pinch of humor and a dash of attitude?

And we all get to have… Half-baked Holidays.

Delicious chaos as romance and yuletide collide.

Five brand-new multicultural romantic comedies, written specifically for this collection:

Family chaos erupts as former high school crushes toss mischief into their first Christmas in… So NOT a Silent Night

A sweet volunteer bedecks herself in Christmas trimmings to lure a dreamy firefighter in… Enticing Wrapper Number 9

A Wharton MBAer ditches her trying family for a spontaneous Hawaiian yoga instructor in… Give Me a Christmas Break

Two daring college students engage in breaking and entering—a personal baking contest—in… Half-baked Holiday

When besties con their way into the ultimate party, a law student finds herself caught in… Billionaire Bash New Year’s Crash

Read on to adventure into the romantic merriment for yourself.

With great pleasure, I introduce you to… Half-baked Holidays.

I hope you enjoy the heartwarming romances.

Multiple award-winning author Kat Bastion returns with a decadent globetrotting romantic comedy novelette in… The Unbelievable Made on a Dare Comic Book Date.

Riya Patel’s entire civilized world—tailored and compartmentalized with great care—implodes with crushing force from a single loaded parental text: Bring your boyfriend to the wedding. A boyfriend who doesn’t exist.

Yet lightning strikes twice when gorgeous Scandinavian actor Sören Johansen drops everything to court her. Someone Riya would never choose to date. An impossible match.

But how to shock the hell out of a traditional Indian wedding party?

Bring the most scandalous plus-one: Thor, God of Thunder.

Do risky dares give stunning rewards? Or one spectacular backfire…

No need to rub your eyes.

Romance readers, don’t fret. More romance is coming! Including Ball Breaker and Icebreaker in the Unbreakable Series.

But if you’re like me, and love to explore other worlds from time to time, read on…

About Braving Soteria: A Quantanauts Collection:

Multiple award-winning author Kat Bastion ventures into unexplored worlds with five original science fiction stories in… Braving Soteria: A Quantanauts Collection

The gaping maw of space and time yawns three meters directly above a trio of brave explorers. Pitch black and daunting. Cavernous and endless.

Threatening.

Inspiring.

And the most significant phenomenon on planet Earth.

A last-ditch hope of saving humankind… from mass extinction.

Braving Soteria: A Quantanauts Collection includes…
Caustic
Metallic
Embryonic
Idyllic
Jurassic


From the Introduction:

What inspires a romance writer like me to veer into science fiction with five original stories?

Well, technically, my award-winning debut novel, Forged in Dreams and Magick, catapults a feisty Southern California heroine through time. So I actually began writing romance through a science fiction (fantasy) framework.

But, oh…

I possess a fierce love for science fiction and deep space, and have all my life.

Beginning with the original Star Trek series as a kid.

Tribbles!

But then George Lucas gifted us with his original Star Wars trilogy. Which I watched with wide-eyed wonder as an eight-year-old in 1977. At the historic Cine Capri in Phoenix, Arizona.

Trivia Factoid: The Cine Capri played Star Wars for over a year, which ended up being the movie’s longest run in North America.

And as an early science geek, due to both of those influences, and many others, space discoveries have always fascinated me. Destructive black holes. Mesmerizing watercolor nebulas. Earth-threatening asteroids.

I’m still drawn to articles about deep space. Especially the periodic reassessing of all the things scientists don’t know. While our insatiable hunger for knowledge grows, inspiring us to push our boundaries and explore new worlds.

Later came the heart-pounding (and heartwarming) blockbuster Armageddon. With its ragtag team of oil drillers, drafted as Earth’s last hope against a giant asteroid threatening Earth.

Modern Star Trek movies further whet my appetite for space exploration, with fantastic actors and brilliant adventures as their courageous crew defied all odds to accomplish their missions.

But

What happens when Earth faces total destruction from an asteroid before our greatest minds formulate a viable defense plan?

What if no escape route exists… out there?

It’s not farfetched to imagine our space programs simply run out of time.

The dinosaurs got wiped out.

What makes us think we’re exempt?

In fact, one of Earth’s weapons in planetary defense, got completely destroyed in December 2020 when the telescope’s deteriorating instrument platform plummeted into the dish below, support towers, cables and all.

That massive radio telescope, Puerto Rico’s Arecibo Observatory, had been making space discoveries for almost sixty years. It had been made famous in the James Bond film Goldeneye and Jodie Foster’s Contact.

Arecibo had also determined the three-hundred-meter asteroid Apophis will get so close to Earth, it’s expected to fly between our outer communications satellites and the planet in 2029.

Talk about bullet burn!

Sooo… yeah.

With that wonderful foundation of science fiction fascination, my imagination exploded.

What if Earth can’t escape a planet-killer asteroid?

What would humankind do?

Who will step up to save our species from annihilation?

Grab your copy today to find out.

Five original stories, written specifically for this collection.

With great pleasure, I introduce you to the… Quantanauts in Braving Soteria: A Quantanauts Collection.

I hope you enjoy their stories…

Now more than ever, we all need reading as a wonderful escape. Books remain our feel-good therapy.

And we intend to provide all the feel-good therapy we can.

How about today’s brand-new standalone romantic comedy . . .

Multiple award-winning author Kat Bastion returns with a standalone romantic comedy novelette, the perfect feel-good escape.

Avery Benson imprinted into her mind an amazing experience she would never allow again.

For in the thirty-fifth year of her life, at the stroke of midnight New Year’s Eve, she’d undertaken an adventure. Guided by a resolution of monumental proportions. One that made kicking a habit, losing weight, or getting organized mere child’s play.
Her bold resolution in that brand-new year? A brand-new her.

But… How far should we go to redefine ourselves?

Bastion Writing Desk News . . .

Starting this year, we’re ramping up the stories we write and publish in order to provide as many romances and adventure-filled stories to our cherished readers as possible.

Because we’re making a few changes to our process in order to accomplish that goal, we wanted to let you know so you can be included in all the offerings if you’d like to be. And we do hope you join us.

We are transitioning our valuable time away from most public new-release promotions, including ARC review requests, promotion blasts, and NetGalley. And although we may post an occasional notice on social media, Facebook and Twitter.

Write and release. That’s our simple plan.

This tough decision to shift resources enables us to concentrate our time on what matters most: writing fabulous stories and publishing them for our readers. One after another.

Of course, any support you wish to offer, including sharing books you love with reader friends and writing reviews on retailer and book websites, we greatly appreciate.
