Tate authors enjoys tête-à-tête in Bestseller’s Secret Conference

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.

Parker author unmasks destructive interpretation of the Bible, reveals truth in new book

PARKER, Colo. — Author Tom Joseph announces the nationwide release of his new book, “Holy Crap: How Religious Church Doctrine High-Jacked the Bible.”

As a man of God and as a man of conviction and truth, Joseph had to study the Bible from its original context to help people become righteous, healthy, whole and secure. As he became more and more a Bible scholar, he became less and less of a religious person who finally saw that the Bible does not teach anything that leads to unhealthy, unrealistic and destructive behavior against innocent life or common sense. He also realized that the Bible is never wrong in its proper context and interpretation. But he did discover that the Holy Bible is completely contradictory, unrealistic and abusive if taught from the traditional, misguided, religious and legalistic doctrinal point of view. Readers will discover more of this eye-opening concept in Joseph’s latest read, “Holy Crap.”

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Joseph, who gained a doctorate in biblical behavior studies pertaining to ministry and a master’s degree in clinical Christian counseling, is a member of the National Christian Counselors Association. His undergrad work has been in health science. He also has countless hours in family and marriage counseling and has been a radio talk show host for seven years in Denver, Colorado. Joseph was a senior pastor for five years of a new church plant he pioneered in Colorado Springs in 1987, and currently pastors a small group church while fulfilling his full-time counseling practice.

After finishing most of his undergraduate work, he went on to coach wresting to all ages as a community contribution and now referees to all ages in the sport of wresting as a member of the Colorado High School Athletic Association. Joseph is now based in Parker, Colorado.
