NORWOOD PRESS TO RELEASE LIMITED EDITION THE SILENT SEA

SPECIALTY PUBLISHER NORWOOD PRESS TO RELEASE SIGNED LIMITED EDITION OF THE SILENT SEA BY AUTHORS CLIVE CUSSLER AND JACK DUBRUL

Silent Sea by Clive CusslerNorwood Press today announced that they will release limited lettered and numbered editions of The Silent Sea – hand-signed by authors Clive Cussler and Jack DuBrulThe Silent Sea is the seventh novel in their co-authored Oregon Files series.  The Oregon, captained by Juan Cabrillo, is a modern-day Trojan horse – a ship that, on the outside, appears broken down but actually holds state of the art equipment and powerful weaponry.

The Silent Sea opens with a prologue set during 1941, when five brothers exploring a shaft on a small island off the coast of Washington state make an exciting discovery, only to be interrupted by news of Pearl Harbor. In the present, Cabrillo, chasing the remnants of a crashed satellite in the Argentine jungle, makes a shocking discovery of his own. His search to untangle the mystery leads him first to that small island in Washington and its secret, and then much further back, to an ancient Chinese expedition, and a curse that seems to have survived for over five hundred years.

“Once again, Cussler and DuBrul demonstrate their unique ability to collaborate and produce amazing adventure novels” said Virginia Lenneville, co-owner of Norwood Press.  “Cussler fans will go wild over this latest Oregon Files novel.”  Limited editions of The Silent Sea can be pre-ordered through VJ Books (http://www.vjbooks.com) or Norwood Press (http://www.norwoodpress.com) websites.

Justin Scott joins the Cussler franchise!

Justin Scott, (AKA Paul Garrison), one of my favorite authors, is bringing back Isaac Bell, the hero in Cussler‘s bestselling The Chase.  The new novel is called The Wrecker, and is scheduled for release on November 17.  VJ Books plans to offer this book in both US and UK editions, as well as our Norwood Press editions.

It is 1907. Train wrecks, fires and explosions sabotage the Southern Pacific Railroad’s Cascades express line. Desperate, the railroad hires the fabled Van Dorn Detective Agency. Van Dorn sends in its top investigator, Isaac Bell. Bell quickly discovers that a mysterious saboteur haunts the hobo jungles of the West.  Known as The Wrecker, he recruits accomplices from among the down-and-outs to attack the railroad, killing them afterwards. The Wrecker travels the vast spaces of the American West as if he had wings, striking wherever he pleases, causing untold damage and loss of human life. Who is he and what does he want? Is he a striker? An anarchist? A criminal mastermind engineering some as-yet unexplained scheme? Whoever he is, whatever his motives, The Wrecker knows how to create maximum havoc. Bell senses that he is far from done – indeed, it would seem that The Wrecker is building up to a grand act unlike anything committed before. If Bell doesn’t stop him in time, the entire future of the country could be at risk.

Clive Cussler and his co-authors, Dirk Cussler, Paul Kemprecos, Jack DuBrul, Grant Blackwood, and now, Justin Scott, bring the high adventure only experenced by reading a Cussler novel in five different story lines, on both land and sea!

VJ Books is proud to offer signed copies of all Clive Cussler titles!

Jack DuBrul – An Introduction

Jack DuBrul is the author of seven best-selling Phil Mercer thrillers.  DuBrul was educated at the West Minster School and holds a degree in international relations from George Washington University.

“I started writing my first novel at prep school and only abandoned the project after six hundred pages the encouragement of a few people who told me I had the gift but this wasn’t the story to pursue. I started my second, Vulcan’s Forge shortly after graduating from George Washington University while I was tending bar and waiting tables in Florida. It was published after I moved back to my native Vermont where I worked construction for my father.

This isn’t to say all I’ve ever done is work and write. Credibility is one of the keys to success as an author. Readers have to believe you know what you’re talking about or they won’t care about the book. There are two ways to gain (more…)
