LaPuerta Books and Media
is the small-press imprint of La Puerta Productions.
Development, Production, and Packaging
We develop and publish popular fiction, as well as business and technical nonfiction. At this time, we do not accept queries from authors. (For author queries to other publishers and agents, we suggest you visit Literary Marketplace and Publishers Marketplace.)
For nonfiction, as a turnkey service for publishers, we can also work as a book packager. For example, for a major textbook publisher, we proposed a series concept for an full curriculum of courseware, from entry to advanced levels. The course of study was college-level digital filmmaking. We recruited the authors and subject matter experts, and then the publisher signed them with development deals to work with in-house editors. We launched the BackPack Film School blog to support these authors. These were semester-length textbooks packaged with ancillary DVDs. Alternatively, we can undertake developmental and production editing, book design, and deliver finished pages to the publisher ready for traditional or digital printing. Over the years, we’ve developed specific expertise in prepress setup and digital publishing for hard- and softcover releases, as well as ebook, DVD, and multimedia book formatting.
Our hardcover and trade paper fiction and history books are available from Ingram. Developed and packaged titles are available from their respective publishing houses and their distributors. Our Pitfalls of Business Reporting and DVD titles are available to wholesale buyers by calling the Booksellers’ Hotline (866) 308-6235 ext. 5120. Bookstores may order the Ingram titles at standard discount, returnable. Depending on the title, libraries and institutions may also be able to order from Baker & Taylor.
