Welcome to Books by Jayna! 

 Here you can find quality fiction with a biblical focus. Every book is written with the following in mind: Good writing honors God, the Creator of language and the Author of the most amazing Book ever written. Preachiness is not what makes a tale worth telling. Christians are people, too, and life as a believer in Jesus is so much more than a moral to a story. Christian books should not be defined only by what is not in them, but also by what is. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, and that’s worth writing about. 
"Of making many books there is no end . . ." ~ Ecclesiastes 12:12

Preacher on the Run

For Liberty & Conscience #1
A Novel of the Regulator Uprising
Christian Fiction/Historical

It's 1771, and Robert Boothe has spent the last four years leading the tyrant-hating Regulators in standing against North Carolina’s corrupt British government. All he wants is a safe place for his family and church to live and worship in freedom. But the established church wants him to shut up. The governor’s men want him dead. Colonel Charles Drake is on Robert’s trail, and that safe place is farther and farther away. You can run, but you can’t hide . . .

Praise for Preacher on the Run 

 
"Intense, delightful, raw, and emotional, Preacher on the Run is definitely on my TRA (to read again) list." ~ Madi, blogger @ Madi’s Musings
 
"Baas masterfully blends history with fictional drama in this thrilling page turner that will keep you on the edge of your seat! A story of faith and the fight for religious freedom, Preacher on the Run is a novel for children and adults alike, and will leave you hungry for more." ~ M. E., Michigan (Author's note: I would recommend this for mid-teens and up, or with parental guidance.)
 
"The writing style – let me just say I was less than a page in and I recognized it as something spectacular. It’s not often that a writer gets it just right where you can actually hear the drawl in a character’s voice just by reading what they say, but Jayna got it spot-on perfect. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes historical fiction with a lot of action!" ~ Natalie, blogger @ Kenmore Pines 1
 
"I couldn't stop reading it! It was really well written . . . and I immensely enjoyed the plot of the story." ~ K. E., Wisconsin
 
"It’s chock full of daring maneuvers, brave souls, tender family moments, and conviction. . . . I can honestly say that Preacher on the Run is one book you won’t regret reading." Callie, blogger @ An Unfinished Story
 
"My daughter has been reading it and she's already asking for the next book! It's a hit." ~ C. G., Arizona
 
"Baas' ability to weave a lot of historical fact in amongst her fictitious plot line was really interesting and masterful. . . . If you're a fan of historical/Revolutionary (or pre-Revolutionary) fiction, you'll definitely find it worthwhile to pick this book up." ~ Michaela, author & blogger @ Tangled Up In Writing
 
"The author does a tremendous job of bringing Baptist History to life. There is a great lesson in it. Please hurry with the next book!" ~ M.H., Maryland
 
"This book has earned its place in my 'books to study' category to become a better writer. . . . It's an excellent read and a must for all homeschoolers, North Carolinians, Revolution-Buffs and Baptists! Buy this book!" ~ Ryana Lynn, author & blogger @ Life of Heritage and a North Carolina Regulator descendant
