I was thinking about working with a co author since I been getting a lot of story ideas. I am already working on a novel and a short story, plus a college writing assignment. I heard James Patterson has co authors, and he got a lot of books done while he worked on one novel in one year. What I want to know is how do two authors work on a book together? Do they have to share the same creative writing style to fit together? And who gets to write the book? Plus can the co author be your editor too?
