Tate authors explore NYC in Secret Conference


Authors of Tate Publishing Enterprises recently explored the eclectic city of New York during their Best Seller’s Secret Conference last August 19 and 20.

The authors were able to hear from Rita Tate, founder of Tate Publishing and Bryan Norris, the Director of Development and Music Operations.


Film Director, Darrel Campbell as well as Managing Director and Talent Booker of Guestbooker.com, Molly Polcari also graced the event. Polcari is known to have previously worked with Fox News Channel and has been responsible for booking high profile newsmakers and celebrities.


The Best Seller’s Conference garnered tons of positive feedback from the attending authors for the eye-opening and overwhelming experience it provided. Authors went sight-seeing at the Empire State Building, took a 911 Ground Zero tour guided by real New Yorkers who experienced the 911 first-hand, as well as experienced the Lady Liberty up close on the Spirit of New York evening dinner cruise.


“Ultimately rewarding – the Tate Publishers and Team, along with the excellent speakers were enjoyable – encouraging – inspiring – motivating – informative – even accessible afterward for individual questions. What more could anyone ask?” states Barbara S. Waddell, author of “Knowing God in Your Heart.”


Tommy Ross of “Larry, the Little Sparrow,” was equally enchanted by the event, stating that, “It was absolutely delightful! I really enjoyed meeting other authors as well as, the speakers who were very informative! The 911 Memorial, The Statue of Liberty, and The Spirit of New York Cruise were also very amazing events that I am so blessed to have experienced.”
