About Us

Welcome to Little Labradoodle Publishing, where passion meets self-publishing expertise.


Founded by author April M. Cox, this venture emerged from a deep love for children's books and a desire to help authors bring their stories to life.

As a proud grandmother, April experienced the joy of sharing children's picture books with her loved ones.


There's something magical about holding a little one close and delving into the pages of a beloved tale. Inspired by these cherished moments, April's little Labradoodle, Brady, became the muse for their imaginative tales.

Self-Publishing Made Simple

What started as a legacy project for her grandchildren transformed into an opportunity for April to make a career change. After 30 years in the corporate world, her IT position was unexpectedly eliminated. Rather than viewing it as a setback, April saw it as a chance to follow her passion. Little Labradoodle Publishing was born.

Recognizing the struggles faced by many authors in getting their books published, April launched her author workgroup, offering comprehensive guidance and support. Since its inception in 2018, hundreds of aspiring authors have graduated from the program, equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed.
