On this episode, we welcome children’s book author and self-publishing coach April Cox.


April is the founder of Self-Publishing Made Simple, and Little Labradoodle Publishing. We dig into topics including how to know if self-publishing is right for you, common self-publishing mistakes, and the best places to spend your self-publishing marketing dollars.


Self-publishing is a big (and sometimes confusing) subject, so we’re thrilled to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as April to share her wisdom. Join us!
