We turn writers into published authors.

Navigating the world of children’s book publishing can be difficult. Exhausting. Overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be.

It can be enjoyable. Exciting. Fun!

At Argyle Fox Publishing, we go out of our way to answer your questions and make the publishing process simple and enjoyable.

Founded by Cleveland, Tennessee, children’s author Daniel (D.K.) Brantley, we know what children’s authors want, so we do things a bit differently.

We don’t work with templates.

We don’t have hidden fees.

We don’t make promises we can’t keep.

Instead, we follow the Golden Rule and treat our authors like we want to be treated.
