About Made Live

Discover Our Creative Journey

Once upon a time, in a land not far away, there lived a Software Developer and a Speech-Language Pathologist, both with decades of experience in their fields...

But they grew weary and restless. Years of unfulfilling work left them longing for more. They began dreaming about writing books together until one day the Developer said, "Let's do it!". They knew publishing books would be hard...but they had no idea. Leaning on his programming prowess and her understanding and love of children's books, they started building an inclusive, fantastic universe upon which they could create their stories.

As they wrote, they researched, and discovered just how much they didn't know. Writing a book, it turned out, involved so much more than writing. The process was long and arduous, and they quickly realized that they would have to publish faster and easier if they were going to make it in the highly competitive publishing world.

This is where the story begins. With a common goal to harness the power of technology to defeat the antiquated and  inaccessible publishing industry, they set out on a mission to help children's book authors around the world create and publish better books, faster, and more affordably than ever before. They were driven by their passion for storytelling and creating products that would help people reach new heights and share their stories around the world.

Little did they know, that soon after they started the company they called Made Live in early 2020, the world would change dramatically. Darkness and uncertainty spread across the land, but they held fast, joining forces with others to move forward with even more determination on their mission to create software that would revolutionize the way people use technology to write and publish children's books.

Since its inception, Made Live has remained focused on creating products and services to save authors from the trials and tribulations of self publishing children's books. Their commitment to developing new and exciting products is sure to make them an unstoppable force for good in the publishing world. And they're just getting started.

Who knows what the future could hold. be continued...


We don’t think self-publishing children’s books should be confusing, empty your bank account, or make you miserable. 

We don’t think you should have to defend yourself against predatory publishers and sneaky sales tactics. And we don’t think you should have to do it on your own. 

We believe publishing should be fast, easy, affordable, and accessible to everyone. We believe it should be easy to get feedback to create a professional looking book. We believe working with an illustrator should be exhilarating. 

Made Live was built by authors, for authors with what you need to write your children’s book from start to finish.

No more waiting. No more rejection letters. No more stress.

Just beautiful books.
