Good afternoon and thanks for checking in on my blog. Today I wanted to talk about the product offered by Amazon for reading books, the Kindle. The cover of Fortune this month discusses this new gadget. The Kindle is an electronic readers that you can read books, newspapers, any PDF and several other formats on much like a book, you just never throw it away. Some claim this will be as big a hit as the Apple IPod while other think it will never take off.
At Tate Publishing we believe in delivering our authors content as many ways as possible to provide any customer the opportunity to purchase or read. Tate Publishing is the leader in the publishing industry in regards to the product mix we offer of our titles. No one comes close! We release our titles as paperback, hardback, audiobooks, e-books, Kindle friendly e-books, and even I-Phone applications while making all of these formats available as many places as possible to serve our authors and the customers shopping for books.
We embrace all types of technology and want to make sure that we are delivering content across every possible application or channel. Once again, this sets Tate Publishing apart, but also is the focus of who we are as a publisher. We provide the marketplace with relevant content and promote our content better than anyone else. While we don't know whether the Amazon Kindle will be the next I-Pod, I can guarantee you that Tate Publishing will deliver Kindle versions for purchase.
It is exciting when new technology becomes available, it causes everyone to have to make sure they are properly structured and aligned to deliver customer satisfaction, but we are proud to be ahead of the curve at Tate Publishing. If you have any questions please feel free to send them my way and have a blessed day!

Good afternoon, it is the beginning of a new month and a perfect time to announce a new feature that Tate Publishing authors will soon have access to. Tate Publishing has always been a leader in the publishing industry. We offer more opportunities, services and distribution than any other publisher. While most would be content with this position, we never are. We want to always press to deliver more for our authors and the publishing industry and continue to distance ourselves from everyone else. This desire has led to yet another feature that our authors will benefit from, I-Phone applications!
Within the next month or two these new application will begin to release and we intend to make these a standard part of every book we release at Tate Publishing. These applications can be used on computers and I-Phones that will allow the user to connect directly to the author, read blogs and stories about the authors books and their motivation behind the creation of the books. In addition, these applications will link the users to the online store to purchase the electronic versions as well as allow us to connect with the authors fans to supply them with information about new releases or new features available to them as well as local events they can attend.
Once again, no one else and no other publisher is offering these services and we are creating an environment where Tate authors can continue to outperform everyone else in the marketplace. I will continue to keep you up to date and post some of the initial applications here once they release in the near future. As always,if you have any questions please shoot them our way and have a blessed week!
