Despite what you may have been told, you can launch a book that is indistinguishable from a traditionally published New York Times bestseller—and you can do it yourself.
But I get it. You've heard otherwise. And besides, you're thoroughly overwhelmed by the notion of writing, let alone launching, your book.
You've Googled it, asked people about it and still don't understand how you're supposed to get a cover or layout or determine the difference between ISBN, copyright or disclaimer. And forget wondering how to get blurbs or a foreword—you're still trying to figure out what they are!
That's where I come in.
I'm a traditionally published New York Times bestselling author who left the world of traditional publishing to form a high-end boutique publishing company that writes and launches books for seven-figure entrepreneurs.
Honestly, I didn't think it was going to be that hard; I'd spent, after all, over a decade in traditional publishing. But I couldn't believe how little concrete information I could find from reputable sources about how to actually launch a book. So I spent years dedicating myself to figuring it out. And I did.
Every single one of Launch Pad's clients have become #1 bestselling authors. Some of them have sold the movie rights for their books while others have been able to use their books to get on shows like The Doctors and Today and still others have added half a million dollars to their annual bottom line.
All because they were able to launch bestselling books.
By serving these clients, I've figured out every detail when it comes to having an A+ launch. And now I've broken down each step into a bite-sized module that can take you from manuscript to bestseller. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure why I'm giving away all my secrets for a song.
Because here's the deal.
Our launch packages cost between $6-$12,000 and our writing and launch packages range between $40-$60,000. In this course, I am giving you everything we provide for the people who pay those prices. While you will clearly have to do the work yourself, you are snagging every last bell and whistle we give them.
Who's telling you all of this?
My name is Anna David and as I told you, I'm a New York Times bestselling author of eight books.
I've written for The New York Times, Time and The LA Times, as well as many publications without the word “Time” in their title. I've appeared repeatedly on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Talk and The CBS Morning Show, among others, been written about in publications like Forbes, Entrepreneur and Women’s Health and been a featured speaker at three different TEDx events.
Most relevantly for you, I excel at getting aspiring writers where they want to go.
