What happened to the Tate Publishing website?

Posted on: Tue, 01/24/2017 - 23:23 By: administrator

Tate Publishing's website has been updated several times in the last few weeks. While it appears they do not have a back-up of their website available, you can still access portions of their website at the WayBack Machine.

There is no information yet as to how e-books, book sales, digital books, epk's or the speakers bureau are affected by their change yet.

Speakers Bureau - Styles are broken
EPK's - Missing
Digital Books - Missing
E-Book/E-Cards - Missing
Direct Book Sales - Missing

I paid in advance for my 2nd book to be published by Tate...what are my chances of getting a refund? And how can I contact someone with Tate Publishing. Their phone # has been disconnected & the website is this so-called 'transition form.'

You can contest the charges with your credit card company (if used). Otherwise you will need to file a claim against the company, a small claims filing would have to be made in Canadian County - but you do not need to be present to file.

I had completed the payments of $1300 for a contract to bring my book to the production phase. I had chosen a cover and editing had been completed. Now there is no way to find out what has happened to my book, if Tate is really attempting to get other publishers to complete the process and how to obtain my manuscript. There was a communication that I could send $50 to get my manuscript back but I hesitate to send any more money to a company who has gone out of business and has left no way to contact them. I am on a limited income and am very upset that I have nothing to show for my payment nor do I have a book. I am sending a complaint to the Attorney General in Oklahoma but really do not think it will be answered or processed. A very sad set of circumstances.
