Co-Author Writing and Double-Signed Books

Article by John Hutchinson
October 18, 2017

Over 30 years ago, Stephen King teamed with Peter Straub to pen THE TALISMAN. It was a relative first in modern publishing for two bestselling authors to co-author a new work of fiction. Since then, it has become much more common. Clive Cussler has teamed with 10 different authors to write his numerous series. James Rollins has teamed with Rebecca Cantrell and Grant Blackwood. Blackwood has also written with Cussler and Tom Clancy. Other teams include scifi greats Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert, Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston, and thriller greats, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

Family writing teams include Clive Cussler and Dirk Cussler, Dick and Felix Francis, Jonathan, Faye and Jessie Kellerman, Mary Higgins and Carol Higgins Clark, and most recently Stephen and Owen King.

VJ Books has relationships with these writing teams and many others, and are pleased to have this category dedicated to Double-Signed Books. These special volumes add value to any collection.

Danielle Trussoni has recently become engrossed with a riveting, highly secretive hidden society of scholars called angelologists.  The group’s mission is to protect humanity from the evil schemes of the Nephilim, the half-human angel creatures of Biblical lore.  Through tireless undercover research Danielle has infiltrated the angelologists’ inner circle.

 In Angelology (2010 March Penguin; signed edition $29.99), Sister Evangeline discovers a 1943 letter from the famous philanthropist Abigail Rockefeller to the late mother superior of Saint Rose Convent, plunging Evangeline into a secret history that stretches back a thousand years: an ancient conflict between the Society of Angelologists and the monstrously beautiful descendants of angels and humans, the Nephilim.

The secrets that this letter guards are coveted by the once-powerful Nephilim, who aim to perpetuate war, subvert the good in humanity, and dominate mankind.

VJ Books Offering Autographed copies of IMPACT by Bestselling Author Douglas Preston

Douglas Preston, best known for his collaborations with Lincoln Child, has penned his 10th solo novel, IMPACT.  Preston has been called “the new and improved Michael Crichton” by International bestseller Tess Gerrritsen.  In IMPACT, Preston brings his popular character Wyman Ford, last seen in 2008’s Blasphemy, back for another round of adventure. The fast-paced tale weaves together three separate plot points, uniting them in one explosive conclusion.  Lee Child, author of the bestselling Jack Reacher novels, calls IMPACTfull of huge ideas, but intensely human, too, and intensely suspenseful.”

Wyman Ford is tapped for a secret expedition to Cambodia to locate the source of strangely beautiful gemstones that do not appear to be of this world.  While he searches for the origin of these dangerous jewels, a young woman in Maine borrows her father’s boat to search the outer islands for the meteorite that lit up the sky in her small town. Meanwhile, a scientist at the National Propulsion Facility discovers an inexplicable source of gamma rays in the outer Solar System. The scientist is found decapitated, the data missing. Ford soon realizes the jewel mine he seeks is much more than it seem and is strangely connected to the events happening on the other side of the world.

“Both Doug and Lincoln had been good friends to VJ Books over the years,” said VJ Books co-founder, John Hutchinson, “and we are always excited when one of them writes a new novel.” IMPACT will be no exception, with autographed copies shipping in late January/early February. VJ Books’ long-standing relationship with Mr. Preston has resulted in an ample backlist inventory of many of his independently written novels, as well as those co-penned with Lincoln Child, which are available at

DOUGLAS PRESTON is the co-author, with Lincoln Child, of the famed Pendergast series of novels, including such bestselling titles as The Book of the Dead and The Wheel of Darkness, as well as The Relic.

Preston is a Research Associate at the Laboratory of Anthropology in Santa Fe, a member of PEN New Mexico, and a board member of the School of American Research in Santa Fe.
