Keep up to date with the latest news about Tony Eldridge and The Samson Effect.

Welcome to this edition of The Samson Effect Newsletter. It has been a quiet time for the book since my last newsletter. However, the holidays are over and things are starting to pick back up. In fact, some interesting things have happened in the last few weeks, and I owe much of it to you. So, without further delay, on to the news.


New Milestone Reached
A week before Christmas, I told you that I needed just six more books to sell in order to earn my publisher's Reader's Choice award. Boy, did you come through for me. The preliminary numbers are out and you helped me sell enough to earn that honor by well over 100 books. In fact, I am now close to obtaining the last of the four goals I can receive from my publisher-The Star Program.


The Star Program will have the biggest impact on my book's success nationally. When I achieve that honor, the publisher will start to invest in The Samson Effect by promoting it nationally. Perhaps the biggest thing that will happen is that all hurdles will be removed that are currently making it difficult for The Samson Effect to sit in every bookstore in the country.


The Samson Effect has earned the Editor's Choice award, the Publisher's Choice award, and is ready to receive the Reader's Choice award. The Star program will make it a clean sweep for everything that it can earn from the publisher. If you have not bought your book yet, please scroll down for links that will take you to the place where you can pick up your copy today.


Remember, The Samson Effect will make a great gift for your friends, coworkers, employees, and clients. Many people have mailed me a copy of their books so I can personally sign them. I would love to personalize your book to make it the perfect gift. Just shoot me an e-mail for mailing instructions.

Big News, Part 1
In December, I told you that some big things have been happening with The Samson Effect. Some things are still in the works and I am not permitted to spill the beans yet. However, one of my major goals was realized a few weeks ago. I am excited to announce that I have signed an agreement with one of the most prominent literary agents in the world: Frank Weimann of The Literary Group International is now working on finding a major publisher for The Samson Effect. His agency is known as the Home of the best Selling Authors and his experience is rivaled by no one. When he successfully finds a major publisher for my book, The Samson Effect will be off the market while the new publisher plans a new release. So, if you want the current edition of The Samson Effect, now is the time to act before a new deal is struck.

Author Of The Month Honors
I am humbled to announce that I have been chosen as the Author of the Month for February at Zimbooktu, an online bookstore and writing community. Just to let you know of the company I am in, among last year's AOM were John Grisham, James Rollins, Jack DuBrul, and Paul Kemprecos. The owner of the site has invited you to visit anytime, but especially during the month of February. I will be on his forum answering questions from his visitors. I would love to see a great showing from you all there.

New Book Trailer
Please check out my new book trailer if you get a chance. You can find it on my website at the following link. Feel free to leave a comment on my website or on the YouTube or My Space page it is on.

New Author Interviews From Barnes and Noble
I have added a new feature to my website made available by Barnes and Noble. It is their author interview series. Here, you will be able to watch video or listen to audio of your favorite authors. Currently, I am highlighting two of my favorite authors, Michael Connelly and Patricia Cornwell. To listen to their interviews, visit my website here:

New Contest- Be In My Next Book
As I start to write the sequel to The Samson Effect, I am looking for a name for a character in my next book. The winner of the contest will have that character named after them and will get a signed copy of my next book. If you wish to enter, just visit my contest page.


Who knows, maybe something like this will be in my next book... 


The cliff's edge approached with deadly speed. Tony had milliseconds to make a decision, either choice most likely resulting in an unsavory death. Behind, the pack of rabid dogs charged at full gallop, foam streaking from their fang-bared lips. Ahead, a sheer drop of 500 feet. Tony had to decide now...


Good luck to all who enter. Be sure to let your friends know about the contest as well!

New Author Friends
Please be sure to check out my new author friends to see if they have written anything you may be interested in reading.
