Why has Tate Publishing become one of the most credible and successful publishers in the industry? Simple—we have the best authors (only 4 percent of manuscripts submitted make it through the acquisitions rigorous requirements), the most gifted production staff, and we market each book to see the highest potential of sales and royalties!
We are the publisher that others are striving to emulate because we are the most author-friendly publishing house in America with the highest author royalties of anyone! When you become part of the exclusive Tate Publishing family, here are a few things you can expect:

- Book is set up for nationwide distribution with the largest distributor in the world, Ingram/Spring Arbor.
- Author is assigned a personal marketing representative, as well as a full-time publicist, who follows a marketing plan for every book which includes sending press releases, book signing requests to bookstores, and monitoring availability of the book at all times, as well as assisting with speaking engagements and public appearances. The marketing representative is the author's personal contact for any marketing requests and needs on-going. (Our marketing staff remains at your service for the life of the book, and a book is forever!). Tate Publishing does not charge a fee for publishing and absorbs all the cost of production and distribution of a book.
