What is Self-Pubishing Made Simple?

Little Labradoodle Publishing started as a passion project for author, April M. Cox. 

She fell in love with children's picture books all over again when she had grandchildren.  "There's nothing like the feeling of a child melting into your lap and snuggling together to read a favorite book."  Her little Labradoodle, Brady, would jump up on her lap and soon became the subject of some of the stories they would make up together.  

Wanting to leave behind a legacy of beautiful children's books for her grandkids, she began to write down some of their stories as a legacy project and The Little Labradoodle series was born.  However, fate had another plan.

After 30 years in IT / Businesses in the corporate world, April's position was eliminated. Rather than seeing it as a negative, April saw it as an opportunity to make a change and follow her passion and Little Labradoodle Publishing was born.

Meet Your Teacher

Hey there! My name is April Cox and those three rays of sunshine to the left are my grandchildren and the entire reason I started writing children's books...


There's nothing like the feeling of your child (or grandchild) melting into your lap and snuggling together to read a book you wrote out of love specifically for them. 

I remember how my dog, Brady, would jump up on our laps and soon became the subject of many stories we would create together. Those moments inspired me to write my award-winning book, Puppy Pickup Day.

Just like you, I was interested in self-publishing but quickly discovered I had no idea what I was doing! But over the last few years, I have been able to simplify the process and develop a proven program that promotes success. 

You see, I'm a geek (propeller-head).  I started computer programming when I was in high school and was fascinated by computers and technology.  I spent 35 years consulting for large organizations and managing multi-million dollar projects.

I excelled because I have the innate ability to cut through complexity and help others to be successful. I loved it. Making hard things easy is my superpower!

After my success with publishing, I decided to leave the corporate world and now am doing what I love full time.  It is so rewarding being there when a new author clicks the Publish Button and makes their dream come true.  ​

I look forward to doing the same thing for you!

Look what some of my authors created for me!

A group of former students worked together and created this testimonial reel for me. I have to be honest, I had to choke back some tears. I am so honored to have worked with each and every one of these amazing authors!
