Self-Publishing Made Simple

After seeing how many fellow authors were struggling to get their books published, April Cox launched her author workgroup, providing step by step handholding to help new and aspiring authors.  The program has graduated hundreds of students since launching in 2018 and continues to expand and increase offerings.

Little Labradoodle Publishing offers a number of additional author services including self-publishing coaching, a private Facebook group, online courses, and an author workgroup that has been wildly popular with authors.

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 so she created Little Labradoodle Publishing.
