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 Book #1
A Novel of the Regulator Uprising
Christian Fiction/Historical

Robert Boothe has spent the last four years leading the tyrant-hating Regulators in standing against North Carolina’s corrupt British government. Just being an unlicensed dissenter preacher is enough to make Robert a target, but he refuses to back down from his conscience. Aside from a sympathetic court justice, the village of Ayen Ford has no other champion for its poor and defenseless. Then Charles Drake, emissary of His Excellency William Tryon, comes to town with one ambition: winning the governor’s favor, no matter what it takes. And Robert Boothe just might be his last chance. All Robert wants is a safe place for his little Baptist church to live and worship God. But the established church wants him to shut up. The governor’s men want him dead. And that safe place is farther and farther away. You can run, but you can’t hide . . .
