Action Adventure Novelist Provides Video Resources for Writers

I don't usually blog about it when I am a guest blogger for someone else. Partially because I do it so frequently that my blog visitors would get bored. But novelist Tony Eldridge has developed so many ways to help authors with their promotion (and good reading, too!) that I thought I'd let him tell you about it himself. In the meantime, I am a guest blogger for his Marketing Tips for Authors blog ( where he sets every Tuesday aside for a guest. Of course, if you query him, that guest might be YOU! My article was posted yesterday. And here is a little about Tony and his services:

I am the author of the action/adventure novel, The Samson Effect. Two items I am particularly proud of securing are 1) and endorsement from Clive Cussler and 2) I sold the film rights to a major Hollywood producer.

I have also developed a passion for helping authors find low cost/no cost ways to market their books. Before I published The Samson Effect, I was the Marketing Director for an Internet company that sold training videos online. A big part of my job was finding low cost ways to promote our products.

I took that knowledge and applied it to my book. Soon, other writers began asking me to give them advice on what they could do to market their books. That led to speaking appearances in the Dallas-Fort Worth area specifically on marketing for authors. In fact, I conducted a workshop on the subject recently for the Writer’s Guild of Texas .

This has led to my daily blog where Carolyn is guest blogging on and about two weeks ago, I rolled out a free newsletter where subscribers will be e-mailed at least 1 free Video Marketing Tip every Monday. I also created a new website at which is open to the public. My vision for it is to corral all my marketing tips resources into one place and create a directory that scours the Internet for marketing tips from around the world. Visitors can even see a sample video tip on my website before they join the free newsletter.
