Tate Publishing Book Royalties

Once again it is royalty time at Tate Publishing.  This is the month that the 2008 4th quarter royalty checks are mailed out and our authors and staff have done it again.  We have for the third consecutive quarter set new records and all time highs for royalties at Tate Publishing.  

As an author knows, true success is only possible with a great partnership between the author and publisher.  The problem with self-publishing is that you get no marketing or distribution (you might get listed on a site but that is not distribution) and the problem with most traditional publishers is that you get no control and royalty percentages are too low to show any profits.  Tate Publishing is unique, we are a publishing house that was born to serve authors and create the best opportunity for an author's success.  I am so proud that we have been able to accomplish this task and now lead the industry in products, services and many of the top sales indicators.  

The success is a direct result of our talented staff and incredible authors that are driven to succeed.  The very fact that we are once again showing higher sales than ever before, even in these tough economic times our country is facing proves how important the publisher and author partnership is to be able to succeed in this industry.

Once again, congratulations to everyone and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to let me know.

God Bless,

Ryan Tate

Great info Ryan! I was doing some research to learn more about the publishing world and came across your blog. It really helps to understand the process! Then I noticed your name and realized that my book is actually with your company right now and is being reviewed by Melissa Huffer (MY DIVA DIET: A Woman's Last Diet Book). I do have a question that is relevant and may be helpful to other authors. I realize that reputable publishers receive many manuscripts and are extremely selective when they choose which ones they will publish. So what do publishers really look for? Is there a criteria, a certain feel, or in this day and age is it all about fame and fortune? Thanks for your input! Hope to meet you some day and God Bless!
