Joy for Friday!

Shouting joy

I noticed one of the young ladies from our church family post this quote on Facebook, “Shouting it from the roof top!”

Her proclamation, based on the picture she attached to her post, was conveying how good God had been to her.

As I read the post, numerous emotions swept through my mind. First, I agreed with her and whispered under my breath, “Amen sister!” But then a sense of holy pride flowed over me. I was so excited for this young lady and her family! I’ve had the pleasure of watching the entire family blossom under the blessings of God!

Sheriff Adonai, The Encounter at Rock Pointe


I am excited to announce the release of, “Sheriff Adonai, The Encounter at Rock Pointe”! Let me take a moment to clearly explain what this book is about and how it came into existence.

In 2011 we released the first Sheriff Adonai book, “The Showdown at Rock Pointe”. The cover of that book depicted a sheriff and was a darker orange color. Then, in 2013, we released, “Sheriff Adonai, The Gift of the Stranger’s Necklace”. The Gift of the Stranger’s Necklace was the EXACT same story as “The Showdown at Rock Pointe”; we simply changed to a different publisher, so the name and the cover of the book had to change.

The Red Christmas Thread – by D. Keith Jones


A long time ago God Almighty was seated on His throne with a single bolt of yarn in his lap. With the delicate fibers of twine stretched through his fingers, He cast His eyes upon the ocean, using His personal reflection, brought forth from the surface of the waters, as a pattern for His latest endeavor. With the sun beaming down from the heavens, He designed a creation that would live with Him in sweet harmony and perfect fellowship.

They say we were created in His image—that we possess, while at a miniscule level by comparison, many of our Father’s attributes. Using the dust of the earth as a foundation, our Heavenly Father breathed life where there was nothing; as stitch by stitch, row by row, every detail of our earthly body was woven intricately into the DNA of our existence by the Master Craftsman.

From the Author

Havenwood Complete Book Cover
I have had two questions come up several times related to the new book. Let me see if I can answer them for everyone;Question #1 – Do I have to read the first Sheriff Adonai book to understand or follow this one? While this story stands alone, it does continue to follow the lives of Misief, Nainsi, Jamison and many of the other characters from the first book. I would not say it is a requirement to read the first book to enjoy the second book, but I will say that the story will be much more meaningful if you have read the first Sheriff Adonai book. That said, while you wait for the new one to arrive, it is a good opportunity to re-read the first book again, or at least familiarize yourself with the story line.

Question #2 – Is this book a lot like the first book? Yes and No….This new book is much the same as it is a fictional novel and continues to tell the story of Misief Stone. However, the book is very, very different in many ways. This book has a story line that is more complex, has more drama, more romance and is over one third longer than the first book. The first book was 240 pages and the new book is 344 pages, with over 15,000 more words. While I am very proud of the first Sheriff Adonai book, (The Gift of the Stranger’s Necklace), I am super pumped about this new one, (The Search for Havenwood).

In my opinion, my writing has developed and improved since the first book, and there is not another story like this on the market. I guarantee you that you will not see foresee the ending of this book until you turn the page and read it! This book is definitely not predictable or like anything you’ve ever read. Enough said……….or I will give it away!

Thank you so much for your questions and interest in the new book. I will make certain to let everyone know the minute they arrive at my home!
