Christine O’Donnell Lands Book Deal with St. Martin’s Press

Former U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell has signed a book deal with St. Martin’s Press. Publication is planned for August 2011.

Trident Media Group CEO Dan Strone negotiated the deal with St. Martin’s publisher Matthew Shear. The book will “embody O’Donnell’s identification with America’s frustrations and concerns with the current political climate.” It will also explore how she beat a veteran politician in the 2010 U.S. Republican primary in Delaware, earning the support of Tea Party members and plenty of media attention.

O’Donnell had this statement: “The 2010 midterm elections were just the beginning—the first rumblings of a revolution that has not fully erupted.  I plan on making my book one of the revolution’s catalysts.”
