Tate Publishing Has A Lot To Be Thankful For!

As Thanksgiving approaches it is always important to take time to think about all we have to be grateful for in our lives. At Tate Publishing we have many blessings and things that we appreciate. I was sitting at my desk working late last night and couldn't stop thinking about how much I appreciate several things at Tate Publishing.

First, is our incredible staff. Through this entire year our staff has grown significantly, but they have become closer and tighter through the growth. Our award winning staff not only love what they do but they are always putting our authors and artists first. I preach in staff meetings that service is key and to make everyone we deal with feel special. I am so proud and blessed to see this through our staff on a daily basis.

Secondly, I am so thankful for our authors. We have seen Tate Publishing authors accomplish more than ever before in this year. We are averaging close to 1,000 events every month in 2010 and our authors have sold more books and had more success than ever before. I believe we have the hardest working authors in the industry and they know that successful books don't happen over night and that success requires a great partnership between them and their publisher. I am so proud of each of you and cannot wait to see what our family of authors accomplish in 2011!

Third, the blessings and growth our authors have achieved in this economy are a miracle. Every-time we turn on the news these days we have to listen to horrible stories about how bad the world is and how high unemployment is and that the economy is spiraling out of control. While there is no doubt that there have been many difficult issues facing our country our staff and authors never looked at any of the circumstances as a problem, but an opportunity to work harder and be smarter. Tate authors have increased the number of niche marketing events and opportunities through our marketing department at an incredible rate. If in store sales weren't going well for an author our staff quickly looked for new opportunities. No other publisher works harder to help and create these opportunities and I am so grateful that our authors never go it alone in this incredibly competitive industry.

Fourth, is our bookstore and distributor relationships. For many publishers they are being cut back and told to take their books and go home by the largest retailers and distributors. We have built over the last decade wonderful relationships with Borders, Barnes and Noble, Ingram and every other large chains as well as small bookstores. I would like to thank each of you for your support of our authors and the opportunities you provide us with every day. We don't take it lightly and we are very thankful.

Finally, my family and God! I spend everyday working hard to make sure that Tate Publishing will be the best opportunity for any author. I believe we have accomplished that and we will continue to offer more and more. In the last year alone we started putting every Tate author on national television. Tate authors have had their book commercials seen by over 300 million viewers! No other publisher does more. My passion for our authors is something that my family has been instrumental in supporting. I am so grateful that my girls at home have made it possible for Dad to work long hours and travel often as we serve our author family and the publishing industry. I could not be more blessed and I thank God for you everyday! God has blessed us with amazing opportunities to share our books with the world and help change peoples lives. I never take that responsibility or opportunity lightly.

I can think of so many more things, but I am afraid that list will go on and on! Thank you to everyone who has made this year a success and been a part of the Tate Publishing family. I consider myself so blessed.

Tate Publishing Update

Good afternoon. There is so much happening at Tate Publishing it is hard to start. As most of you know Tate Publishing is the leader in the publishing industry. No publisher can match our marketing, production, distribution and promotion for authors. We push ourselves everyday to be the best. In March we launched a new television campaign for our authors and artists. Since the launch Tate authors have had over 12K commercials air nationwide on the largest networks. Our authors have reached into the homes of 100's of millions of viewers with these commercials. No one supports or promotes their authors like Tate, I am so proud of our author family and their success. It is their great books that continue to help set the benchmark for our industry.

We were also blessed to be one of the first publishers contacted by Apple, Inc. to start releasing content to Apple inc., for the popular Ipad devices. These devices use the ePub format that creates wonderful opportunities for readers to actually interact with a book across their digital platform. It is truly an exciting time to be a published author.

As always we look forward to helping and serving you. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to let me know. Please continue to keep your eye on Tate as we strive to continue to be the best. Also don't forget to follow Tate Publishing on our twitter account. We are constantly holding different contests with great prizes as well as updating followers with real time news and updates.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

NBA Team Joins Tate Publishing Family!

Good afternoon and thanks again for visiting my blog to find out about all of the exciting new opportunities at Tate Publishing. Since I last wrote we have had so many things happen. From new magazine launches to the incredible response and success our author's nationwide television commercials are receiving, it is a busy and wonderful time to be a part of the Tate Publishing family.

Many of you are first-time authors and looking for a home for your life's work. I want to encourage you to search out every option and compare them head to head. If your manuscript is accepted by Tate Publishing I believe you are being offered the best publishing opportunity in America. From editing and design to marketing, distribution and layout, we are the best and no one can compete or even offers what Tate Publishing brings to the table.

It is this very level of service and success that brought a National Basketball Association (NBA) team the Oklahoma City Thunder to Tate Publishing. This summer we will be releasing several children's books for the team and for their team children's associations telling the stories of the team, their mascot and history. The same level of writing, illustration, design, marketing, distribution and promotion that the NBA require is what is the daily expectation for us and our authors. That is the Tate way!

To succeed you need great partners in the publishing industry. We are excited about the opportunities to partner with authors and organizations across the globe.

As always feel free to contact our offices or me directly if you have any questions and know that we will be praying for your success. We look forward to talking with you soon!

TV Commercials Bringing Great Exposure To Tate Publishing Authors

I wanted to give everyone a quick update on the new television commercials Tate Publishing is running on our author's books. When we launched these television commercial campaigns we were excited. However, the results and exposure has far exceeded our expectations.

Tate Publishing is the only publisher in America that provides this level of commitment and service to their authors. We are so excited that we have created the premier publisher for authors with accepted manuscripts. From design, editing and layout to marketing, distribution and manufacturing, Tate Publishing authors are experiencing incredible success and providing the industry with the highest quality of content. The television commercials were the latest publicity opportunity and has proved to be a great one for our authors.

Since launching the campaigns Tate Publishing and our author family have already reached nearly 145,000,000 million viewers. That is right, 145 million viewers have watched our commercials and the buzz is incredible. This type of support and exposure is exactly what it takes for authors to be successful and set themselves apart. I am so proud to be part of a company that is forward thinking and continues to put authors first.

These are very exciting times and I will keep the reports coming and thanks for reading!

Tate Publishing Announces Television Commercials For Author Family

As we begin another year we are all very excited at Tate Publishing!  2009 was one of the most successful years in the history of Tate Publishing and 2010 is positioned to exceed that.  While most of the publishing industry was in turmoil and marked by financial pain and job loss.  Tate Publishing increased our market share and watched authors succeed like never before.

While 2009 brought many famous authors to Tate Publishing like Kenny Rogers and even American Idol song winner Reggie Hamm, I am the most proud that our first-time or previously unknown authors showed  unprecedented success.  As an author it is always important to have a publisher that can truly partner with you and help you succeed in a very difficult marketplace.  That is exactly what we accomplish everyday at Tate Publishing.

We pride ourselves in providing more products, services, distribution and publicity than any other publisher in the industry, especially for first-time authors.  We will never forget that to be a successful author, you must have a powerful publisher that can partner with you to truly succeed.  We have always provided this level of service and experience, but we constantly are looking for new ways to expand and help our authors accomplish even more.  In this same spirit we are pleased to announce that we have once again pushed the envelope and are now able to provide nationwide commercials on over 150 different networks for our authors.

Visibility is one of the most important things an author needs.  Visibility is key to sales and with the addition of television commercials to our marketing and publicity plans, we put Tate authors on a completely different level than anyone else.

Starting in January we will begin airing  :30 second commercials of our published titles.  These commercials will play nationwide on the largest networks.  We are so excited that we can provide this opportunity and we have committed to make a huge investment in our authors.  

2010 will be another great year at Tate Publishing and make sure you drop us a note when you see Tate Published authors on your television this year!!!

Have a wonderful year and God Bless,

Ryan Tate
