indieBRAG Christmas Blog Hop


Hello, wonderful readers! Bunny Elder Banks here to welcome you to J.B.Hawker’s B.R.A.G. blog party. J.B. is too shy to brag about herself, so, since I was in town, I offered to be your hostess.

I actually don’t mind, since J.B. never would have won her two B.R.A.G. medallions without my help.

If you think it is easy being the heroine of one of J.B.’s books, well…you can just think again. The things she puts me through!

You know, she looks like such a sweet little church lady, but some of the things swirling around in her imagination…my dear, I mean, really! It’s all right for you who only read about these things, but I have to live them.

Dealing with the serial killer in Hollow, her first Medallion winner, was an eye-opener, believe me. She took an innocent story about a small town Halloween decorating contest and almost got me killed.

When she took me off to Italy in Vain Pursuits, her second award-winner, I thought it was going to be my reward for what she did to me in Hollow…no such luck. She got me kidnapped by the Mafia in that one. Well, she did give me a few romantic scenes with my Max, so I guess I will forgive her. Still…you should just read what she gets me up to in Seadrift and in …and Something Blue.

I thought when she concluded that series with such a nice, happy ending, Max and I could retire in peace. But then what does she do? She kills him off! And brings me back to Bannoch in The First Ladies Club to help rescue her latest victim (what does she have against pastors’ wives, anyway?).

Oh, I know, she hints in A Body in the Belfry that maybe Max isn’t quite as dead as we were led to believe (led to believe by you-know-who), but with her fascination with dead bodies, what am I to think?

Now, where was I? Oh yes, I’m here today to welcome you to J.B. Hawker’s BRAG Christmas Blog Hop… and to brag about her, I suppose. Hmmph! I don’t think so.

Oh, well…it is the Season of Peace and Joy, so I guess I can cut her some slack. The poor dear probably doesn’t have much excitement in her own life and needs to live vicariously through mine.

Best wishes to you all for a Blessed Christmas and happy reading.

The next stop on the indieBRAG Christmas Blog Hop is tomorrow, December 8 with Vinnie Hansen  who is probably much kinder to her characters than you-know-who.

Until next time…bye from your pal, Bunny.

  1. Loved this post! Merry Christmas to you Bunny – oh and to J.B. !

    • Thanks, Helen. We are having such fun today.

      Merry Christmas to you, too. (Bunny typed that “Marry Christmas ” before I caught the typo. But it made me wonder if a romance writer ever used that title…for one of my books it would need to be “Marry Christmas Death” or something equally ominous.)

  2. I think I’d be worried if my characters got as close to me as this – but that’s what I get for writing about murder, I guess.

    Great post, Bunny – now please untie J.B. and let her continue to write.

  3. Merry christmas Jonna – or bunny, actually both!
    Loved your post I amsure I will be back to read it several time-

    • Thank you, Geri. Nothing makes a writer happier than being read over and over. Bunny just whispered that it is her personality, not my writing, which should take the credit…I think she’s getting a bit full of herself. I haven’t written the “whatever really happened to Max” story, yet. I think she might just be in for something harrowing, if she doesn’t behave.

  4. Very fun! I always love hearing from Bunny! Such a sassy one! 🙂

  5. Nice post. Thank you for sharing this with all of us!

  6. Thanks, so much for having us on the Blog Hop, Stephanie. Great fun!.

    • I’m glad you are enjoying it! I am as well! So impressed with all he wonderful posts from our authors. Everyone is outdone themselves. 🙂

  7. Certainly sounds like Bunny enjoyed drednaughting your post, Jonna! And I certainly enjoye reading it. Thanks for that.

    On a side note, the Marry Christmas Murders could be an interesting series. I’ll keep an eye open for those. 🙂

    • Ooh, good idea! Gotta go start making notes right now. I should have something ready to go by next Christmastime.

      Thanks, you can expect a mention in the acknowledgments.

  8. I enjoyed this post. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Very clever! I hope you will all drop on by to see my post tomorrow.

    I too can hardly wait for your next book. I enjoy reading and can hardly wait for the next one.

  11. Sounds like you have a live one with that Bunny! I think she would have made a good match for my Van (supporting character in my second novel). Thanks for the fun post and have a Merry Christmas!

    • Maybe we can introduce Van and Bunny (she thinks she’s a widow…could lead to interesting complications if Max shows up).

      You have a Merry Christmas, too.

  12. Merry Christmas
