While writing The Song of David, I kept playing around with a melody, just a little piece of a tune that kept coming back to me. I used to write songs before I wrote novels---I released a gospel CD in 2007---and music and words have always gone hand in hand for me. I finally got up from my desk and went to the piano and plunked it out. When my son came home from work, I played it for him and asked him what he thought. He is a talented singer/songwriter now working on his second album, and he is pretty picky about what he will and won't do. I'm a little bit country and he's a little bit . . . no, not Rock n' Roll, but definitely alternative. Very indie. But he loved the tune, if not the words. We fought back and forth over it. He had his words, I had mine, but we agreed on the melody. Finally, with a lot of give and take and singing and arguing, we found the right lyrics for this haunting melody. It perfectly complements the book. When I hear it, all the emotion of so many scenes in this story rise to the surface. I hope you feel it too. You can purchase the official Song of David single on iTunes and Spotify.

This took my breath away. The very talented Tina Kleuker made a book trailer for The Law of Moses! She did a stunning job. I don't even know what to say. I hope it compels a few more people to read the book. Thank you, Tina.
I have a BIG surprise. I have been waiting to share this. It is so awesome I might die. The talented Tamara Debbaut made an awesome BOOK TRAILER for Infinity + One. And the very coolest thing? My long-time friend, Heather Goedel Parker, is the one singing the song you are hearing. The song is very important to the book, and it just blows my mind how talented Heather is.
