“I awoke this morning into this beautiful new reality of being a #1 International Bestselling Author. Holy heck. That’s pretty damn amazing. Seriously, I am blown away by your kindness, support, generosity, and belief in me and my story.
As I experience the simple and profound joy of holding my book in hand, I imagine it being safely held in yours. That, to me, is why story is sacred. It brings us together in our strengths and weaknesses; in our triumphs and tragedies.
When one of us owns and expresses our truth, we are all scaffolded out of the depths of fear towards infinite opportunity and love.
Love wins. It always does. And I’m not just saying that. I feel it deeply in my being and hold each of you in my heart as we boldly go forth and build our lives together. Let’s go out there and get messy, make mistakes, as well as breakthroughs.
I stand with each of you in this process and it is an honor.
Thank you, friends. For handing me my dream.
For holding my story as sacred. Deep bow of gratitude.”
— Julia Harriett, #1 Amazon Bestselling Author, “Under Construction”
This is now my fourth time publishing with Davis Creative, one book I wrote, Dear Ryan, and three anthologies. Everyone
who is a part of the process is SO EASY to work with, so positive, so encouraging - all the good adjectives apply.
Theresa Jeevanjee, Ph.D., Author
Davis Creative helped me go from an unpublished author to a published author almost overnight. They made it so easy. Thanks to their support, my book was perfect. They were delightful to work with.
I also wrote a chapter in Living My tRuth. It was an amazing opportunity. This anthology gave me the opportunity to write my “Me Too” story – it’s a story I’ve waited for 40 years to tell. Without Davis creative I may never have had the chance to tell this story. But the very best part of writing my story was the chance to meet so many amazing, fascinating women. I’m so very glad I took part in a Davis Creative anthology.

With much love, and thanks for all your help!"
“Cathy and Jack helped me publish my first novel, "Trusting All I Want." Cathy guided me through the process, which included selecting a cover, designing the inside and outside of the book, getting it published in paperback, hardcover, and e-book formats, and taking care of numerous details along the way. She is a professional with an incredible amount of experience in the field, and I felt well taken care of in working with Davis Creative. I've recommended her several times since my book was published in January 2019. It's a one-stop shop with reasonable and predictable pricing, and plenty of hand-holding as needed. I highly recommend them!”
Tim Sansone, Attorney, Author
“Working with Cathy was truly a pleasure. Cathy’s experience, expertise and especially patience eased the overwhelming process of designing both the interior and cover of our book, especially since she had to contend with working with six authors. Cathy is a true professional, inventive with ideas but also takes great care when it comes to details. Davis Creative is a true expert in book design and other graphic creations.”

“Cathy Davis is an amazingly creative talent. She is insightful and thoroughly understands marketing. She can create the ‘look’ you want and express your message even when you’re stuck describing it yourself. Cathy is easy going, patient, reliable and inspiring to work with. When I was indecisive and wavering on one point or another she always offered just the right solution. I highly recommend Davis Creative for top quality creative design and cutting edge marketing advice at reasonable rates.”
Samantha Shields, Feng Shui Consultant
“Cathy understands how to get underneath what sits on the surface and really understand the landscape of a business (in our case, taking care of kids in need) and the story it needs to tell. She then distills it down to the most essential, salient components and creates messaging and creative that is powerful and enduring.”
Kathryn Feldt, Chief Operating Officer, Marygrove Children’s Center
“I have worked with Cathy and Jack for almost a decade on various projects. I appreciate their timeliness and talent at putting my ideas onto paper in a way that really pops! They are so easy to work with, and their turn-around time and personal service cannot be beat. I was especially grateful, when we had to alter a finished ad at the last minute, they were very gracious and quickly produced the perfect ad for us. You can count on Davis Creative to respond to your needs.”
