I’m a huge fan of music. Those (like me) who have researched music artists and bands are familiar with what’s called a “discography.” A discography is a list of the albums that a band or artist has produced. It includes the year each album was released and a listing of all the tracks on each album in order. You can take a look at one here.

There are some striking differences and similarities between a musician’s work and an author’s work.

Difference: Most musicians reach the peak of their careers at a very early age, usually in their early-20 or mid-20s. Most authors reach the peak of their careers much later in life, usually in their 40s, 50s, or 60s.

Similarity: There are many. But one is that an album is very similar to a book. Each chapter corresponds to a track off an album.

At the suggestion of a friend, what follows is the equivalent of my “discography.” For those interested, it’s a list of each of my books, the year published, and the table of contents (the “tracks” as it were). This post will be updated as future books are released, God willing.
