Reviews for Launch Pad Publishing & Anna David
Joe Polish, Founder, Genius Network
"Using emails and posts I had already written, Anna David and the Launch Pad team crafted a full-length manuscript, quickly delivering to me an amazing book with a beautiful cover, layout and message. I literally ‘wrote’ a book without having to write a new word and now I have an ideal calling card that perfectly encompasses all my most important beliefs."
Margarette Allyn, confidence coach
"When people say, 'I’m not easily surprised,' I used to think that was an overused cliche. Anna proved that wrong, as I was not only surprised but humbled by her gracious attitude. It was a much-welcomed breath of fresh air. I will certainly look forward to a long business relationship and friendship. It was a true pleasure and I highly recommend her and Launch Pad."
Tim Conn, president and co-founder of Image One USA
"I had an amazing experience with Launch Pad from start to finish. I couldn’t have asked for a smoother process; the team is nothing but professional and I have them to thank for taking the dream of a book to a reality. If you’ve ever thought about writing a book but didn’t know where to start, I would strongly recommend contacting Launch Pad and letting them show you the way."
Elizabeth Overstreet, relationship expert
“Not only did Anna help me become clearer about my writing goals, but she offered practical guidance, tools and feedback to move me along in the process of writing a book. I learned more from Anna in the short time I have known her than many others who claimed to be experts in writing, marketing and pitching. I highly endorse Anna David for anyone who wants to get serious about their writing and take it to the next level.”
Darren Prince, founder, Prince Marketing Group
“There’s nobody better than Anna David and Launch Pad. Within weeks of my book coming out, I was able to get a get $100,000-a-year spokesperson gig. It’s also helped my company because it shows every corporate client who I am and that I’m proud of my journey. It humanizes me so much and transforms a business conversation into a personal one. None of this would have happened without Anna and Launch Pad."
Emily Lynn Paulson, coach and creator of the Sober Mom Squad
“Launch Pad made the publishing experience absolutely seamless and gave me exactly what I wanted for my book and for my career. Since my book launched, I've been featured on dozens of podcasts and been able to reach people I never would have been able to before. I've been able to get a TED talk, build an online program as well as a coaching business, get on TV shows like Today and The Doctors and into the pages of places like The New York Times. It's so much more than just a book. It's the ultimate business card and it's unlocked so many opportunities. I can't recommend Launch Pad highly enough."
Brian "Beam" Maue, cofounder and leader of world-ranked innovation company AFWERX
"Launch Pad Publishing was able to answer the question, 'Who should I trust with one of the most important ideas of my life?' They helped sharpen, enhance and then elevate my story and were tactically exquisite! They were also incredibly strategic for the book launch; their methods and suggestions (they offer ideas, but no pushy egos there) were key to helping my book achieve the number one slot in numerous Amazon categories."
Rajesh Setty, Co-founder of Audvisor.co
“I’m reasonably convinced Anna David clones herself because I don’t think it’s possible for one person to accomplish as much as she does for her clients. Her passion for publishing, combined with her knowledge and experience, make her someone any entrepreneur would be lucky to work with.”
Courtney Friel, KTLA newscaster
"LaunchPad publishing came in at the last minute and rescued me from a terrible situation I was in with trying to get my book out to the world. I didn’t have time to learn how to self-publish myself and there are lots of people out there who want to take advantage of this. Anna David and her team are total pros, they hustle and know how to make things happen right! Thank you so much!!"
Daniel Lebensohn, Founder & Co-CEO BH3 Management
"The entire Launch Pad team is made up of amazing collaborators. I deeply appreciated their enthusiasm, feedback, guidance and conversations. The impact of all that they do has massive ripple effects and they’re the kind of people about whom you look forward to continuing the conversation with to come."

Jennifer Lovely, coach
“Writing my book with Launch Pad was the most amazing experience because they made the publishing world seem easy and accessible. Not only is their team professional, but they just love you through what can be a scary process. I really wanted to create more business from my book and the week it was released, I got a magazine column and picked up three new clients. I really have to give Anna David credit because she and her team not only did the book but also guided me to create a business from it.”

And she's a fun and encouraging force in your life."

Anna works with such professionalism, personalization and humor which makes the experience cohesive and exciting. I highly recommend Launch Pad!"

Jeff Kober, actor, photographer and writer

Launchpad allowed me to write my book with support, encouragement and professional insights. They gave me the courage to do what I always wanted to do. To write a book I am proud of and ready to share with the world. I highly recommend working with this dynamic team."
MK Jackson, writer
"Anna is an oracle. As an accomplished author and a successful publisher, Anna expertly bridges the gap between the art and business of writing. That she does so in such a personable manner with precision communication and humor only makes working with her that much more enjoyable. Anna has played a part in every step of my book. When I was stumbling through my first draft, her insightful, productive feedback gave me the encouragement and focus to finish it.
As I complete my second draft, she has already prepared me for the next phase: editing. Her guidance has helped me better understand and anticipate the process of selecting the editor best for my book. In my latest consult with her, Anna has helped me define my audience and strategize potential monetization scenarios for my work. She even helped tweak my title and offered cover art suggestions—is there nothing this woman can’t do?! And when it comes time to launch my book, you can bet I’ll be right back at the oracle seeking more advice. Wherever you are in your writing process, Anna can help you realize not only your book’s potential but yours as well."
