Flash Club Supremo
I miss them.We used to have a member (s) here in the old days that were a husband and wife team who wrote thriller/erotica. Must have been a wild time!
Em, I can't comment on your comment on my status lol, so short answer is my accent (which I don't have) is probably a mix of Kiwi and Aussie lol
That was a really interesting interview. I want to read the book! Not only because of the authors but also the story sounds great, too. I don't know if I could co-write with a partner, but it would be fun to try! I've recently joined an aspiring indie games studio as the co-writer and that has been a fantastic experience so far. I guess it really depends on the people and the genres they like. I wonder what the result would be if a crime writer and YA fantasy writer teamed up... Actually, that could be a fun forum challenge one day! Uh, or one that ended up as a disaster!
Good ol' Alf! I used to watch that show years ago
Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child co-write the Pendergast series (one of my favorite thrillers), and the way they do it is they write alternating chapters and then edit through the other person's. In their 10ish books, I've never been able to tell where one author stops and the other starts. James Rollins also did a collaboration with Rebecca Cantrell for the Blood Gospel series. I only read half of the first book, but the writing was also excellently merged.I think that a collaboration would work best if, in a crime novel, one author wrote the baddies and the other the goodies. The danger with trying to write together is that the style and message becomes homogenised and bland.
I wonder how the publishing executive and editor in charge of a novel written by 26 authors managed to keep their sanity. No Rest For The Dead was published in 2011 with contributions from such luminaries as Jeffrey Deaver, Kathy Reichs, Faye Kellerman and Tess Gerritsen.
