Complaint / review text:
I signed with Tate and realized they sign everyone because they take your money! I'm a manager and work in sales and marketing and Tate's marketing is horrible! I have done my own marketing and still can't seem to figure out what the retainer fee was for... Oh actually it was to print the book! This is a vanity press and all the ok comments I see have come from authors that are just new to signing! I'm currently in negotiations with other publishers for the rest of my series. DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE HYPE! My book is doing well with no help from Tate. My book is being shared in many schools and sold in many stores as I have had to do all the foot work! Also showed up to a book signing and I brought the books with me but when I arrived the book store had already purchased a bunch of copies to sell. Guess what I never received any royalties off of the books. Tate is a print to order, it's really sad but I'll be turning my back on Tate and have to say I don't feel bad as even under contract their backs has been turned on me!
