Tate Publishing on the Verge of Bankruptcy
Tate Publishing has fallen on hard times, unable to pay royalties to their authors over the last two quarters and past due to each of their vendors. At this point Tate Publishing has not paid author royalties for two quarters even though they claimed royalty payments to their authors as income to the IRS in 2014.
Tate Publishing owes six figures to Fed Ex, is past due on their office lease, Houchen Bindery (hard cover printer) has black balled them from printing, Terminex and other vendors.
President and CEO has instructed staff to only pay royalties to authors that call in and complain more than three times.
All disgruntled Tate Publishing authors do NOT need to contact the Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB does not resolve claims and Richard Tate is a board member currently trading printing capabilities for an A+ BBB rating.

Look this is hilarious that Allen Finch from Tate Publishing will post on here elaborating on the lies and misdirection that Tate Publishing sends every author from the very beginning. I do not need to go into a long explanation of what went wrong at Tate. It is the same as everyone else.
This so called Christian company is a scam. I paid for 200 books back in January and still have not received them. This is my property and have since taken Tate Publishing to small claims court and won.
Even after I won President Ryan Tate would not stop calling me giving me every excuse in the world as to why my money could not be refunded. He is a character in general but the blabber that he was spewing was above and beyond coherent. It sounded very much like when he prayed for and then fired 25 employees a few years back.
Google Tate Publishing fires 25 employees if you are even thinking of singing with Tate Publishing and it should be reason enough to stay clear. Regardless there is a huge class action law suit currently underway and anyone who has been wronged by Tate Publishing needs to contact the Oklahoma City Attorney General (405) 521-3921, they are happy to take your call.
