Tate Publishing authors were recently treated with a Q&A session with Tate founders Dr. Richard and Rita Tate, Vice President and Director of Sales Mark Mingle, and film director Darrel Campbell. The event was held in Oklahoma City where the authors were able to explore the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum and enjoyed a delectable dinner at the prestigious Vast-Devon Tower Restaurant.
Attending authors were ecstatic about the event and the tête-à-tête with some of the company’s influential personalities. David Calvin, author of “Mars Starwalker,” “The River of Lost Souls” and “Killing for Love” particularly enjoyed his conversation with Dr. Tate, “He added a dimension to the meeting when he talked about passion, aggression, and perseverance. He drove home the point that what we were yesterday is not what we are today!”
“It was such an encouraging and informative event. I am so glad I went! Thank you, Tate Publishing for putting together such a terrific weekend to meet other offers and learn more about what it takes to be a best-selling author,” shares Sara Dyer, author of “The Battle for Eve.”
Richard Draughon, who penned the gripping novel, “Draconis: The Fallen Kingdom” echoed Dyer’s enthusiasm, sharing that, “It was wonderful, delightful and very informative – very fun with a lot of great people.”
“”It was a lot of learning, fun and building relationships. I especially liked getting to know Richard and Rita Tate and the rest of the staff. What a joy and encouragement,” shares Kitty Trock author of “Weeding the Garden,” “A Ladybug Story,” “A Cricket Story,” and “A Spider Story.”
The conference was held last July 29th and 30th where the attending authors included, Eunice Drake, Russell Burry, Kitty Trock, Libby Bentson, Leann Deller, David Calvin, David Bissonette, Richard Draughon, Sara Dyer, and Tenneh Momolu.
“I found the meetings informative and enjoyable. I thought Mark and Rita were astounding and enjoyed Darrel… as he conveyed the power of the written word and transferred those words into meaningful action,” Calvin adds.
