New Year, New Decade, and our New Email Family with Exciting Gifts Ahead…

Bastion Family Adventurers Banner

Hello, everyone. And Happy New Year and New Decade!

Yes, we’ve seen the ongoing debate on whether or not the new decade has begun. Potayto, Potahto. We’re charging into the 20’s. And it’s an exciting new decade indeed.

Especially exciting for us. All of us.

The Wake-up Call

Now, typically, we don’t share our personal lives much in our public book world. We blogged a couple of years ago about moving to a tropical island and going minimalist.

What we didn’t share since then was the near-near-death experience Stone had one year ago next month. No need to go into the details, but suffice to say, both of us were terrified he wouldn’t wake up the following morning.

Every day since has been an amazing blessing. And has reprioritized our love for life, initiated a vow to experience the world with childlike wonder and joy each day we’re lucky enough to wake up in, and recharged our energy for creating adventuresome stories.

After the health scare, we moved back to the mainland, to beautiful Boise, Idaho. And in mid-2019 we dubbed the next twelve months our “Year of University”, although we suspect it will continue on to be every year, with us eagerly learning and growing.

Some of the Cool Learnin’

A few of the many creative things we’ve learned thus far include formatting our own books, designing our own covers and promotional materials, and creating our own original art.

Yep. Art for our book covers!

In the next couple of weeks, we’ll share with you the five book covers we’ve created for an exciting new short-story adventure series we’re revealing soon… #StayTuned

New Email Family

Part of our wake-up call, our second chance with life together, has been to elevate our current mailing list and the wonderful readership within it that supports us. So, rather than an occasional email (only as notification of preorders, sales, and new releases), we’re going to reach out a little more often. Possibly monthly, or more.

And we’re considering ourselves a part of the tribe, those who love to escape in original breathtaking journeys, delight in the heartbreak, the growth, and the journey where love prevails and the good guys always win.

To embrace our readership more fully, we’ve named our tribe… {whispers} as our banner above hinted…
the Bastion Family Adventurers!

Exciting Gifts Ahead for our Loyal Readership

As a thank you to our loyal fans, we’re going to be extending special gifts to those included in our email list. What kind of gifts?

  • Exclusive Cover Reveals: Be the first to participate in the unveiling.
  • Exclusive Preorder Alerts: Never miss an opportunity to order your copy.

What’s Coming in the Next Decade?

LOTS of stories.

We expect to release books in every season of every year.

Till we die.

Which hopefully won’t be for a really long time.

{stares with intense love and expectation at Stone}

For starters?

That new short-story series we mentioned contains five standalone adventures. The first book will release February 2, 2020. Then each short story after will release every two weeks.

Annnd… the next Highland Legends novel finally has a release date!
{whispers} Born of Mist and Legend is the Exclusive Cover Reveal we’re sharing with our Bastion Family Adventurers this week!

Then we’re writing the next two novels in the Unbreakable Series, the next Highland Legends novel, a standalone spinoff novel from the No Weddings series, another fun new comedy series, a young adult fantasy adventure series… and much more.

Oh, and did we mention {whispers} audio?

Pretty exciting stuff, right?

Most of all, we are grateful. So very appreciate we’re here. With you.

Thank you for all your support through the years. We look forward to many decades yet to come.

Your humble shoe and boot,

~ Kat & Stone

Romantic and Comedy Thanksgivings…

Today we shared a Facebook post that included a romantic taste of a Thanksgiving scene from THREE CHRISTMASES.

Best Thanksgiving ever quote pic

Besides reading holiday romance, we love to watch favorite movies and TV shows that are holiday themed.

Here are a few favorite Thanksgiving-themed movies and TV shows, some quotes and remembered moments:

Miracle on 34th Street for the Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Susan: “There’s nothing else to see except guys cleaning up horse poop.”

The Blind Side – Love their Thanksgiving meal. And everything. Great movie.

Grumpy Old Men … So awesome.
Kat: Love Ann-Margret in that movie.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles 
Stone: Great comedy. I remember their car-rental scene. Freakin’ hilarious. {laughs}

Scent of a Woman – Al Pacino!

You’ve Got Mail and that “Cash Only” line.

Cashier: “Happy Thanksgiving back.”
Stone: The cashier’s demeanor totally changes the instant he leaves. {chuckles}

Big Bang TheoryWe love more than one episode but…
“The Thanksgiving Decoupling”

Raj: “My, my, the plot like my gravy thickens…”

and a favorite second quote (and really there are a ton)…

Sheldon: “At some point while you were there was Las Vegas also on its side?”

Friends – So many beloved episodes…but…
“The One With All The Thanksgivings”
Stone: That’s right. Chandler’s Flock of Seagulls hairstyle!
Kat: And Monica’s turkey head! {dies laughing}

Gilmore Girls
“A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving”

Luke Danes: Shouldn’t we give thanks first?

Jess Mariano: Thanks for what?

Luke Danes: Well, that we’re not Native Americans who got their land stolen in exchange for smallpox infested blankets.

Lorelai: Amen.

There are so many more. Let us know if we need to add any of your Thanksgiving-themed favorites to the list!

May you all have a warm and blessed Thanksgiving and upcoming holidays.
