The Birth of Baby Coop
Baby Coop Publishing was born in September of 2012. I was at a crossroads. I had just finished the draft of my first book, Bitter and Sweet: A Family's Journey with Cancer. I could knock on the doors of publishing companies, but I knew I might lose creative control. Most importantly, it was crucial to me to protect the veracity of the content in the book. My story was written with brutal honesty and it was vital it stay truthful.
I decided to open my own publishing company and Baby Coop Publishing, LLC was born. The name is in honor of my husband Tim’s childhood nickname, “Coop.” When we were expecting our first child, “Baby Coop” was dubbed and it is his newborn photo that has become the logo for the company.
After Bitter and Sweet was published, other authors, with their own dreams of publishing their cherished stories, came forward. Take a few minutes and stop by the various authors' pages to see the diversification of talent that Baby Coop has been honored to work with.
Enjoy! And thank you for spending time getting to know Baby Coop Publishing, LLC.
