Self-publishing doesn't have to be so hard...

Hey fellow author! I'm your self-publishing "guru" April Cox, and I'm so excited to teach you the secrets of how to successfully self-publish a quality book, while saving money and time.


My goal is to help you avoid the mistakes that can cost you thousands and delay your book by months or even result in you giving up on it altogether.

My grandchildren and I always LOVED to create stories together... I remember my dog, Brady, would jump up on our laps and soon became the subject of many stories we made up together. Those moments inspired me to write my very own children's book just for them, which turned out to be my award-winning book, Puppy Pickup Day.

When I first set out to publish my first book, I had no idea what I was doing. There was so much to learn and it was hard to find good self-publishing advice or resource I could trust... does this sound like you?

It took months of time and thousands of dollars to figure out all the different aspects of self-publishing, but I was eventually able to get my book completed! It was complicated, but In the end, it was all worth it because I created something so special for my grandchildren (and I can now say I wrote an award-winning book!)

Since then I have published seven more books and have had 1500+ students through my self-publishing course. If you're anything like the new authors I work with, you're probably overwhelmed, confused, and uncertain about the complicated process of self-publishing...

But don't worry! You aren't alone anymore! In this 12-week self-publishing course, I'm going to walk you through the entire process step-by-step and you will find a community of other authors just like you working together and supporting each other to make dreams come true!

April Cox

About Your Teacher


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

Just like you, I was interested in self-publishing but quickly discovered I had no idea what I was doing! But since 2018, I have immersed myself in self-publishing and have been able to simplify the process and develop a proven program that promotes success. 

You see, I'm a bit of 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 left 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 for the first time and makes their dream come true.  ​Self-Publishing Made Simple has made dreams come true for over 1500 authors. 


I look forward to doing the same thing for you!
