We are all very excited at Tate Publishing to welcome our newest author to the Tate Publishing family. Joe Washington is one of the greatest football players in the history of the sport. He is in the College Football Hall of Fame as an Oklahoma Sooner, he played on two super bowl teams with the Washington Redskins as well as in two pro-bowls and was the leading rusher and receiver in the NFL in 1979. Perhaps his most significant performance was on Monday Night Football in the 1979 season. Many claim this to be the best Monday night football performance of all time. On September 18 while playing for the Indianapolis Colts, Joe Washington's team played against the Patriots. Joe was involved in scoring the teams final three touchdowns to eventually lead the Colts to a fourth quarter victory. Late in the game Joe returned the final kick-off 96 yards for the winning touchdown, putting the Colts up 34-27 over the patriots. Joe Washington, rushed, received, passed and returned a kick-off all for touchdowns in this memorable night.
Perhaps more impressive is the incredible person Joe Washington is and the humbleness that he possesses. Joe wants to give back to the world and help other all across our country succeed in all areas of life. Joe will bring a fresh approach that will resinate with readers of very diverse backgrounds and help them to apply simple truths he has learned to help them succeed and accomplish their goals in life.
Tate Publishing has always boasted one of the best author pools with the highest levels of success and performance in the publishing industry. Joe Washington is of the high caliber author we are proud to publish and represent on a daily basis. For more information check back in frequently or contact our offices.
Once again, Joe will benefit from marketing, promotion and production that is second to none giving him the Tate experience that gives our authors the advantage in today's marketplace. Congratulations to Joe and once again, welcome to the family!

As you all well know success is never possible alone. Especially not in the publishing industry. To truly succeed in life and publishing, you need a great team. At Tate Publishing we have put together that very team for our authors. The success and growth we are having at Tate Publishing is a direct result of the talented staff we employee and assign to partner with our authors. While other publishers are cutting back, firing staff and selling fewer books, we are growing and selling more than ever. As the President and CEO there is nothing more wonderful than a staff that never quits, sees challenges as opportunities and serves our authors and vendors everyday.
It is this very quality that makes it possible for us to succeed. We were so pleased to find out that once again Tate Publishing has been named one of the best places to work in the State of Oklahoma. In these economic times it is a huge privilege and honor. I am not exaggerating when I say that Tate Publishing authors and vendors truly get to work with one of the most talented staffs in the industry. Most publishers outsource and farm out their work because it is cheaper. We have always had the feeling here that quality and service is more costly, but if you want to lead an industry and succeed you need to make the extra investment in the staff to see the results that are desirable. We handle ever element of production in house and are able to produce results faster and better than anyone else.
Once again I couldn't be prouder of this most recent accomplishment and we are looking forward to another incredible year.
As always feel free to send your questions my way and have a blessed week!
