Dear Richard,

Maybe I've already told you this, so forgive me if this is a repeat but your people are just incredible. Everyone from editing to layout to design to marketing is nothing less than first-class.

I appreciate the fact that every one worked hard to make my book the most entertaining and professional book possible. I know I am no where near your only author but the staff that was assigned to me made me feel that I was their most talented, best-selling author.

I am currently in the process of the next book and while I know from what I've heard from other authors that everyone is great I am asking to keep my current team of Jaime, Leah and Traci.

Once again, thank you so much for everything. If there is ever anything I can do for you, although I don't know what it could be, please don't hesitate to ask. Jay and I are fans for life.

President Theodore Roosevelt made this important statement below in 1910 long before bloggers and the internet came along. People have always been critical and hateful and he understood that well. As Roosevelt said below…”we should spend ourselves for a worthy cause.” The bloggers, the lazy, the complainers, and the self-serving of the world do not live by this code below or spend themselves for any worthy cause as many of you do every day. Roosevelt and his brother were impassioned patriots and motivators. Roosevelt’s brother was honored with the Medal of Honor for his heroic action in France during WWI. He gave his life for a great cause. Great men and women have great understanding of perseverance.

"It is not the critic who counts: or the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Thanks from a Tate Author

Dr. Tate,

It has been my intent to do this for some time; know us Author's...always "gettin'-n-goin' and forgetting to get to the important things..." (I'm kidding of course, but I should have done this weeks/months ago!)

I want you to know how ultimately thrilled I have been with Tate Publishing's services, peoples, communications and developmental procedures during the production work with my book! It would, in fact, be an understatement to simply state my intent of thanks as "awesome(!)" because the entire process provided me an overall unforgettable, positive, experience beyond what I can easily express. Not only was the production work completed in a timely manner, it was done speedily as well - and with no lack of quality! My "team" of folk who worked with me were all quite helpful, considerate, understanding, easy to talk to/communicate with, and willing to do whatever it took to complete their involved stages of work as quickly and efficiently as possible. Little "lag time" was involved, and things moved along rapidly...and usually even ahead of schedule! Needless to say, I am extremely happy with Tate's overall system and peoples in readying my work to be presented to the world...

I would like to extend my deepest thanks in gratitude to all those specifically involved with me - first to you, Mr. Tate (who I initially made submission to because I could not seem to be able to do it through the website. Thanks, Ryan, for being so quick to make sure I had response!), and to you also, Rachael, for being so helpful and "on the spot" when I needed to speak with you. Thanks to Dave Dolphin, Curtis Winkle, and Melanie Hughes - each of which played their own important roles! Thanks to my team...Stacy Baker (Acquisitions), Molly Crofford (Acq's Assistant), Lauren Downen (Copyediting), Vince Conn (Editor), Joey Garret (Layout & Design), Leah LeFlore (Design), Amber Gulilat (Graphics), Melissa Madole (Audio Book), Travis Hampton (Book Trailer), Marianne McShane (Website), and Jennifer Shelton (Distribution). Please let each of these folk know how very pleased I am with what they have done for me!

Speaking of my "team"...
The book I now have out is the first of two to tell the entire "original" story (more books coming in the follow-up series later!), and since I am so very highly pleased with those I worked with, I am hoping you will consider allowing me to have the same team when time comes for production on the "continuance" novel. My intention toward "why" is as follows:
First, I came to know most of them well, as they did with me, on a more "personal" level through our communications. They are already familiar with my own work ethics and "ways of wanting/needing to do things according to the content of writings" - including the way "I" intentions, goals, desires, interactions with them, etc. - as well as being familiar now with my style of writing and "purpose of content" within the storyline.
Secondly, I am also familiar with how they each work and/or "operate" within their separate fields of expertise...(and wow, am I impressed!)
Third, in regarding my first two points, I would see it being highly beneficial and productive to again work with "familiarity" rather than having to basically start over with someone new. This, of course, includes everyone from Acquisitions to Final Hard-copy...(ready for marketing and mass distribution)
Fourth, and with all the above in mind, I see this as a way to take production through an even speedier process!
...Perhaps you may agree? I hope so...because getting this second half "out there" is imperatively important, as it is "the story!" Without it, the first is merely an unfinished storyline (...everyone I know who has read the "beginning" is highly anxious for the continuance/conclusion). In fact, the sooner it gets out, the more it will generate sales for the first book as well.

Please pardon my "ramble" there, but the excitement I am feeling from what Tate Publishing has done for me is phenomenal! I cannot help but to want to get things rolling again - as soon as possible. Truthfully, I have found that the production process in and of itself is quite the exhilarating "ride," and I'm anxiously awaiting to get started again! Now...if I can just get Marketing to rev up their engines, amp up the energies, and put us in position to quickly move forward...

Thank you both again for providing the services of a truly honest and integrated publishing company that is inspirational, forward moving, highly professional, and most of all, treats its "clients" with the integrity, respect and guidance that makes us ALL successful! I am proud to let the world know that I am a published Author - and that Tate Publishing is at my side to make it so! I look forward to a continuing relationship with you, and all those within your company...

Be well, my friends...and may your dreams be fulfilled as you are doing for me!

Tate Publishing Nationwide TV ads a huge success!!

When a book we publish releases our fine staff produces a world-class commercial and then our marketing and publicist divisions air those commercials on select channels NATIONWIDE. There is no publisher who provides that kind of marketing...not a single one. We are delighted to see how well this added program is going. Stay tuned for even more fabulous news from the marketing division in the coming months.

I am always amazed at how much time our staff spends educating authors about the publishing industry. We sign many high profile authors who have great sales track records, a household name, and understand the industry. However, until we determine we can no longer continue with the option, we still accept unsolicited manuscripts from tens of thousands of aspiring authors from across the globe. Only about 2% are considered for our investment and publication. We now run nationwide commericals which are produced in house at the highest quality level and run on appropriate channels across America when a book is released. This gives each of our authors the exposure to millions. No publisher does for it's authors what Tate does. At this very moment, our Senior Director for Marketing and the Director of our publicist division are in New York City meeting with buyers about our new releases. They go each month and represent our authors. No one gets the effort Tate authors receive. No one.

Friends and followers,
My TATE PUBLISHING EXECUTIVE blog usually features a few of the tons of wonderful emails I get from our authors and potential authors. I love sharing those. However, this time I want to shout from the rooftops about our new commercials we are now running on nationwide television. Our fantastic media division produces a world-class 30 second commercial featuring a new book release and then we air that commercial on national television! NO OTHER PUBLISHER IN AMERICA provides that for their one! We are very proud of this added marketing tool and want you to keep your eyes "peeled" for these 30 second beauties. Thanks again to our marketing and publicist divisions for this outstanding effort. No one does it better.

To Tate Publishing Staff,
I am not an established author, but I am hoping to become one. I just recently sent in several chapters of a book in which I am beginning a series for. It is not a completed book, or even an edited version of one. Simply nothing more than several roughly written chapters of a work that I am expanding on. Tate publishing did a very nice, complete and thorough job of explaining exactly what they do and exactly what they expect on their website. There was no doubt in my mind exactly what I was doing when I sent them the few chapters of the uncompleted book that I am working on. They quite specifically said that they would be happy to READ the portion that I had written to see if I actually had something that they MIGHT be interested in. I find absolutly no misrepresentation in this what-so-ever. This to me was a refreshing site to come upon after so many other less than honest sites. IF, by some chance that Tate decides that my works is in any way good enough to use me as one of their writters then I look forward to writting for them as I know that my works would be well taken care of. IF, they should decided that my works is not of their quality then I would have to believe that they took the time to check it over fairly. However whether or not they choose to publish my works or not has no bearing on how I will feel about the honesty of this company. I would have to say that if they do not choose your works, get over it. They are doing a great public service for as many writters as they possibly can and they should be commended for holding to a high set of standards. Weather or not they are the best is all opinion based. But having an A+ rating with the B.B.B. alone says a lot for them. Christian says the rest. Hats off to an honest publisher in a world of dishonest ones.

I have a friend that Tate is considering to publish. He wrote to me for an opinion..
I have been proud to be part of Tate, even though it has been a small part.
Dianna and I will be coming to you in the future with our projects.
Feel free to call on us to give an opinion if needed for those looking for people such as Tate to do their projects.

We all agree that Tate is great at what they do.
My friend Jeff B. will be signing with you soon as well. He asked me and I recommended you and will continue to do so.

God bless Tate.

Dr. Tate,

I am finding that a "thank you" letter to you and to your team is much harder to write than was my book! There are just not enough words to capture my appreciation of this process and the hard work your team put into working with me to make my dream a reality. From the editing process through the marketing process, each person I came into contact with was absolutely wonderful to work with. I will write again, but just wanted to say thank you so very, very much!

Kind Regards,

Kathryn D.


As a new author of children's stories I have found that getting published is not as easy as one would think. I am not an artist nor do I know how to work a computer program that will help me to do the artwork. To my regret I have invested in several programs that do not work. I want to go over what I have accomplished with Tate Publishing. I now have an artist at Tate Publishing who knows what I want and will help create my characters with an eye to new trends and marketability. I have enjoyed their professionalism which has been top notch. I had to put up a a refundable co-investment to help me get in to the market that I have no way of getting into on my own. This fee assists in the cost of someone else to do the art work which quotes from other companies and artists have been twice as high and when the book sells I get that investment refunded to me. Do I believe that I will automatically become a best seller with Tate. No I don't. I have to sell my work and what my work stands for. However, Tate Publishing is providing me with a chance to make it. Look at POD's and then look at what Tate Publishing has to offer. You will find it has integrity. To believe in yourself and then have a publishing company behind you who will return phone calls and emails the same day is unbelievable. Would I recommend Tate to other writers heck yes. I have already.

Dear Mr. Richard Tate and staff:

Thank you for your expertise and excellence in working with me; I am now into my third book and the fourth and five being submitted this month.
