Remembering Dr. Leon Bass
Dr. Leon Bass died Saturday, March 28, in Newtown, PA. I had the pleasure of helping Dr. Bass write his memoir, Good Enough: One Man’s Memoir on the Price of the Dream. I got to know Dr. Bass quite well. He was a wonderful person, always a gentleman, and always kind to everyone he met.
The world was a better place because of Dr. Bass, who wrote about his experiences as a liberator of Buchenwald in World War II, and how it changed his perceptions of the world. He explained that he had entered the army as “an angry young black man,” but the sights he saw at Buchenwald helped him to understand that the same fear that kept him from drinking at a “whites only” water fountain in Mississippi, when taken to its furthest extreme, became the extermination of a race.
Here are links to two articles written about Dr. Bass.
Writing. Publishing. Promoting.
These are the three essential steps an author must make to successfully sell a book.
Open Door Publications understands that authors are passionate about their work – but not always passionate about the work it takes to promote and market their book. That’s why we work with authors in every stage of book writing and publishing – from the first time author who says, “I have an idea and I don’t know how to get started,” to experienced authors with one or more books under their belts who need assistance with marketing plans to sell more books.
We offer personal service at each stage of the process. Many of our clients are coaches, consultants, entrepreneurs and speakers who vary from first time authors to those who have published several books. Our boutique agency methodically helps you to stretch your boundaries and expand your ideas to achieve your publishing goals.

To say it has been a pleasure working with Open Door Publications is an understatement. Karen understood my anxiety and fear over publishing Never Settle For Less, which I had been writing on and off for years. She gave me the encouragement I needed. Karen was especially patient with my corrections, changes and concerns. She established a relationship with me, educated me on the process of storytelling, book publishing, and was always supportive and willing to put that extra time into listening. I feel confident with my work in her hands, her comments about the quality of my work, and her suggestions for publishing and marketing the book. Good overall experience!
Thank you Karen!
