New Release! Worship at the Keys: A Method Book

Cover lowresAnnouncing the upcoming release of Worship at the Keys: A Method Book!  This one-of-a-kind book is a step-by-step method, paced for teens, explaining how to play praise and worship songs with a church band. It covers reading chord charts and lead sheets, playing with different groups of musicians, understanding practical concepts in music theory and playing by ear. It includes 23 contemporary worship songs written in simple keys and user-friendly format. This book is a great place to get started for students who have taken a couple years of piano lessons and would like to learn how to play worship songs.

Songs included are: Here I Am to Worship * This is the Day * He’s Got the Whole World * What a Beautiful Name * Cornerstone * Jesus Paid it All * Lord, I Need You * Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone) * Holy Spirit * At the Cross (Love Ran Red) * From the Inside Out * Breathe * You Never Let Go * Every Move I Make * Happy Day * 10,000 Reasons * My All in All * Your Love Awakens Me * Jesus, Lover of My Soul * Our God * Open the Eyes of My Heart * You are My King (Amazing Love) * Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) *

I am very excited to make this book available to the public and hope it will be a blessing to students, teachers and worship leaders.  It contains everything about playing worship songs that I wish I knew when I was a teen! You can check it out on Amazon here!

New Release: Medieval Mars: The Anthology

Medieval Mars AnthologyI am excited to announce the release of Medieval Mars: The Anthology!  This anthology is a collection of stories that take place in Travis Perry’s world of Medieval Mars.

It’s been about a thousand years since Mars was terraformed and settled by people from earth, but then the civilization collapsed and people returned to a way of life reminiscent of medieval times.  Knights called Riders patrol the roads and contend with dragons, bioengineered by the early settlers who added wings to Komodos.  Apparently they couldn’t figure out how to make the dragons breathe fire, so they made them spit acid.  Yipes!

Read about the war between the mons, a wild west style snake-oil salesman, a young man who would brave anything to save his bride from a mysterious illness, a woman who finds herself too old to continue her passion as a racing bird jockey, and more!  My novel Sam and the Dragon is included, along with stories from eight other authors.

Available in kindle and print versions.  Check it out!
