Tate Publishing Closing Its Doors - Publishers Weekly

Be careful what you sign!
Today's trip into the Catosphere took Panzer to the Publishers' Weekly site. It didn't take any digging at all for our inquisitive kitty to find a post about Tate Publishing.

According to a post by Ann Byle, Tate Publishing and Enterprises has shut down. Authors were notified by mail with instructions on how to regain control of their books. The instruction include a contract for the author to sign and return. The contract stipulates that by signing and accepting their book files back authors agree not to try to get their money refunded. Authors paid the company (sometimes thousands of dollars) to publish their books. Tate Publishing is already being sued in court for non-payment by the companies which provided their publishing services.

Panzer says, "Be sure to read the Comments section too. You'll find some interesting and helpful information there."

Note: This is a medium post. Bring a cup of tea and a muffin for today's reading selection.
