Forbes named her one of the top 10 bestselling authors of the year. She’s rumored to have signed a $50 million deal with Ballantine Bantam Dell. And in my in-depth interview with her in at mediabistro.com, Janet Evanovich discusses another revealing fact. She is looking for co-authors, three or four of them, in fact.
Just as James Patterson partnered with lesser known co-authors, Evanovich is now looking to do the same. With the success of her last partnership with Charlotte Hughes, this could be the opportunity of a lifetime.
“There are tons of really good writers out there,” Evanovich says, “but for one reason or another, they just have not had the support that allowed them to build audiences.”
In today’s interview, she discusses exactly what type of co-authors she is looking for and how you can go about submitting yourself for review.
