LaPuerta International

Book Development • Media Production • Consulting

Founded in 1987, La Puerta Productions is a professional services firm providing creative and educational content to publishers and information consumers, as well as communication support to authors, publishers, and media developers.

In 2018, we broadened the scope of our operations and began to do business as LaPuerta International.

Our principal place of business is in Santa Monica, California on the western edge of Los Angeles, six blocks from the Pacific Ocean and within walking distance of the terminus of the new Subway to the Sea extension of the Expo line.

We publish books and multimedia under our own imprint, LaPuerta Books and Media. The LaPuerta imprint and its logo — an open door — symbolize unlimited access to knowledge, opportunity, innovation, fascination, and delight. In our support for authors and thought leaders, we help influential voices achieve worldwide platforms.

We provide outreach and support to authors who intend to self-publish on our radio show and podcast series, GetPublished! Radio.






Let us assemble a team for your publishing or media project from our bench of proven performers. Please don’t hesitate to contact us so we can learn more about you, your vision and your business mission, and the challenging projects you are planning to undertake.
