Author Tony Eldridge Represented by The Literary Group International

Frank Weimann, founder and president of The Literary Group International, now represents all literary rights for Dallas, TX author Tony Eldridge.

Tony is the author of The Samson Effect, an action/adventure novel that Clive Cussler calls a "first class thriller brimming with intrigue and adventure." The novel has already garnered Editor's Choice and Publisher's Choice honors. The Samson Effect follows the pursuit of two scholars who are close to discovering a secret of biblical proportions. However, two opposing forces will do anything to stop them.

A major Los Angeles based producer is currently in negotiations with the author to acquire the movie rights to The Samson Effect.

"I am excited to represent this book," Frank Weimann said. "I believe the mix of action and historical references will appeal to the mass of action/adventure readers."

Founded in 1986 by Frank Weimann, The Literary Group International is one of the premier literary agencies in the book publishing industry. The company represents more than 200 authors worldwide. Its formidable client list ranges from novelists, celebrities and public figures, to Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winning authors.

Among the agency's current popular titles are The Alchemyst by Michael Scott; Red Helmet by Homer Hickam; Flags of Our Fathers by James Bradley; and Dog and Bear by Laura Vaccaro Seeger.
