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.

Pathfinder by Orson Scott CardA powerful secret. A dangerous path.Rigg is well trained at keeping secrets. Only his father knows the truth about Rigg’s strange talent for seeing the paths of people’s pasts. But when his father dies, Rigg is stunned to learn just how many secrets Father had kept from him—secrets about Rigg’s own past, his identity, and his destiny. And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

Rigg’s birthright sets him on a path that leaves him caught between two factions, one that wants him crowned and one that wants him dead. He will be forced to question everything he thinks he knows, choose who to trust, and push the limits of his talent…or forfeit control of his destiny.

Fleeing his home, Danny finds refuge and slowly explores his potential, planning to open the first Great Gate in 14 centuries.

VJ Books Honors New York Times Bestselling Author Orson Scott Card as January 2011 Author of the Month

Press Release – Tualatin, Oregon – January 3, 2011

VJ Books announced today Orson Scott Card to be the featured author of the month for January 2011.

Nobody had ever won the Hugo and Nebula awards for a novel and its sequel, two years in a row, until Orson Scott Card received them for Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead, in 1986 and 1987. But Orson Scott Card’s experience is not limited to one genre or form of storytelling.  His contemporary novels Lost Boys, Treasure Box, and Homebody brought a powerful emphasis on character and moral dilemmas to the old-fashioned ghost story. And his contemporary novel, Enchantment, is a romantic fantasy that has Sleeping Beauty being awakened by an American graduate student in Ukraine in 1991.

Orson Scott Card’s awards are numerous.  He has been nominated for, or won, the Hugo Award for Outstanding Science Fiction over a dozen times, and the Nebula at least ten times.

With two new books, Pathfinder and The Lost Gate, fans of this prolific author have a lot to shout about.
