“I was thinking of writing a book about three years before I met Karen. I didn’t know the first thing about writing or publishing a book, but she gave me the expertise and knowledge I needed to get my book finished. I trusted her knowledge and everything she told me was the right move to make to get my book finished in a professional manner. Anybody looking for someone to help them write their book should look no further than Open Door Publications. I absolutely love the way my book came out and I know that the people reading the book will be in love with it too.”
