The book is now available for $3.99 only through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and is compatible with Kindle, Nook, PC, Mac, I Pads IPhones, Androids and other devices. Jones is hoping to raise awareness about her book in the hopes of garnering the attention of Amazon and a place on its bestseller status list.
According to Jones, the plot of the book revolves around a family who visits a “magic” Christmas tree grove in search of a “real” Christmas tree and gets more than they bargained for. Jones’ son Josiah inspired the book when he was in third grade. Josiah is now a 10th grade student at Natchitoches Central High School.
“It sprang from a Christmas writing assignment,” said Jones, who self-published the e-book. “I thought the idea was cute and full of humor.”
Jones is a writer, an educator, and a mother of four.
“I’m a story teller,” said Jones “as was my mother before me.” Even though “The Runaway Christmas Tree” is her first published book, Jones explores writing in many genres with a style steeped in humor, discovery and adventure. She is writing a sequel to “The Runaway Christmas Tree” and is excited about the projects that are forthcoming. Jones has won numerous awards in education and also writes songs, poetry, non-fiction, business plans and seminars.

“Joe was a delight to work with and the most creative person I know. I was very pleased to work with him on this project,” Jones said.
“It was a magical day for the e-book debut because we are offering the e-book at a reduced price, free e-gifts and a chance to win a visa gift card, but you had to purchase the book on that day to qualify for the gifts,” said Jones.
