Read our founder Anna David's story here.
The short version is that Anna wanted to write a book since she was six years old and discovered, via the Guinness Book of World Records, that the youngest author was four. It took a few decades but she was able to have six of her books acquired and published by major publishers.
Through that process, Anna discovered that books provided instant authority. And so, after decades in the traditional publishing world, she decided to create a custom publishing company with one mission: to help brilliant business owners write and launch authority-establishing, legacy-leaving books.
With a published book as their calling card, Legacy Launch Pad clients have the power to own their authority and charge what they are truly worth.
Anna believes that every business owner has a story to tell, and her mission is to help them tell it in the most impactful way possible. She knows that quickie, formulaic books just become shelf decorations while legacy-leaving, authority-building books open doors, attract higher-quality clients and bring in endless opportunities.
Anna is a New York Times bestselling author of 8 books and 3x TEDx speaker who's appeared on Good Morning America, The Talk and The Today Show ...

What Makes Us Different
Legacy Launch Pad sets itself apart from other book publishing companies by working exclusively with business owners who have spent years achieving success and need a book that showcases that. We know that a legacy-leaving book can change your career—and life.
Publishing isn’t a business we stumbled on a few years ago. It’s one we’ve always been in.
Our founder has worked in publishing since the 90s and published six books traditionally before discovering custom publishing. Our writers are New York Times columnists and Wall Street Journal bestselling authors who are obsessed with creating legacy-leaving books that are indistinguishable from traditionally published bestsellers.
In addition to The New York Times, our team has written for The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, New York Magazine, The Smithsonian and The Paris Review, among many other prestigious publications.
We excel at taking decades of your experience and distilling it into something that can be consumed in days. In the same way that you hire a top financial advisor even though you could manage your own investments, you need a high-level partner to create a book that will do justice to what you’ve achieved.
We take pride in our individualized approach, where every book is loved and nurtured into existence, and we only work with a select group of clients who are committed to producing a quality product. If you're ready to create a book that establishes you as the preferred and trusted authority in your industry, apply to work with us and we'll assign you members of our team that will turn you into a rock star in your industry.

VOICES OF IMPACT
Our Clients Share Their Success Stories
"Legacy Launch Pad 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."

"An amazing experience from start to finish."
"I had an amazing experience with Legacy 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."

"I got to see my vision materialize."
"It was my dream to maybe one day write a book and Legacy Launch Pad helped in every way. I had an idea for a book, but I didn't know how to put it together. At first, I was doubtful about how it would all turn out but because I knew I was working with professionals, I just trusted the process. They taught me the importance of having systems and the right people in the right places when you're publishing a book and because of that, I got to see my vision materialize."
