I can relate because I've been there...

My name is April Cox and I’m a best-selling, award-winning children’s book author and founder of Little Labradoodle Publishing. I was once exactly where you are - confused and overwhelmed about the self-publishing process. 


I made a lot of costly mistakes, but was determined to make my dream come true, so I forged a path to success. By combining my 35 years of technology and project management expertise and what I learned on my self-publishing journey, I created my signature self-publishing course - The 90-Day Way.


Over the years, I am proud to say that my expertise has helped over 1,500 authors. I’ve helped turn their struggles into triumphs. I've watched them celebrate the joy and accomplishment of bringing their children’s books to life, and I can help you, too.

Together, we can turn your dream of becoming a published author into reality, and it will be simple, affordable, and fun!

“I took April’s course in the Summer of 2023 and didn’t publish one book, but rather two and followed it up with two activity books to go along with them.


I could never have done that without April’s self-publishing course.”
