People everywhere want a voice...somewhere they can express the message or story on their heart. By putting that idea to paper and being published, that person becomes an author. Ten, fifteen, or twenty-five years ago, it was a very rare thing to be a published author. And you know what? It still is.
While it is easier than ever to become a published author, it is not easy. We deal with authors daily in all departments - acquisitions, editing, graphic design, layout, multimedia, and marketing. We have the honor of working with some of the most talented writers in the world. They may not all be famous writers, but the manuscripts we have the pleasure of creating into books with these authors are some of the best anywhere.
Tate Publishing accepts for publication less than 4% of the manuscripts submitted to us. Our acquisitions department thoroughly reviews those submissions to pick only the best of the best. So when those books complete production and come to the marketing department, we have the pleasure of partnering with these authors to give these people the voice they so desperately want.
I've seen authors open their books for the first time, and it is a very special - and powerful - moment. Take a second and view the video, then come back...
This is why we do what we do. We give authors the lasting legacy of becoming a published author. A legacy and a voice that can live on far beyond the author's lifespan and affect others - family, friends, and those in far corners of the earth - for generations to come.
