Venice Beach (Pacific and Windward)


In 1991, we opened our offices in Marina del Rey, California and soon after, relocated to Venice Beach. We like to say the cool ocean air and aqua water introduced Jewel Diamond Taylor’s Success Gems with foreword by Iyanla Vanzant. Globetrotting to book events across the U.S. with African American on Tour with Jewel hosting each event, we produced one of the first internet radio shows, “QTradio.net.”

Dr. Sharon Turnbull’s Goddess Gift came to life in book form from her popular Goddess quiz as we introduced a mini version of the personality quiz for the first time. “Goddess Gift” became an Amazon Bestseller overnight.

As a boutique book publisher with a broadcast background, we took a step further by introducing esteemed authors Dr. William July, Dr. Elaine Sonne, Dr. Cynthia Brian and her daughter Heather Britney, including the popular radio personality Edie B. Anderson from KDHX.

In addition, the esteemed poet laureate Dr. Eugene B. Redmond, winner of the American Book Award for his work “Eye in the Ceiling,” joined forces with us to produce the first-ever Miles Davis Festival in hometown E. St. Louis, Illinois. We established a non-profit literary org (Renaissance Literary Arts Press). Since this is also the publisher’s hometown, we went to work on our first major event.

Jazz icons Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ahmad Jamal, Clark Terry, Russell Gunn, and others joined us for a 12-hour back-to-back festival on the Mississippi Riverfront across from St. Louis, Missouri. The entire month of May is set aside to celebrate Miles Davis.

We celebrated a 20-year reunion in 2021 with Mr. Jamal, Miles’ nephew Vince Wilburn, Jr., Erika Johnson +, including Keyon Harrold, who played trumpet under Don Cheadle in the (Miles Ahead) movie. Quincy Troupe, who co-wrote the autobiography of Miles Davis, and Dr. Ben Cawthra, author and curator of (Miles: The Miles Davis Retrospective) for the Missouri History Museum joined us again with family and friends.

Yet, it is the memory of a cherished friend and her unpublished books that has compelled us to recommence operations, partnering with a few carefully chosen allies who share a deep interest in the diverse realms of arts, literature, music, film, and broadcasting. Linda was a phenomenon in various arts including Women’s Rights from the 1960s to the 2020s. Sadly, this majestic icon, who by many was thought to be an “eternal” lover of humanity and art, passed away on September 13, 2022. We introduce our relaunch tome, “On the Life of Linda J. Albertano”, compiled and edited by her loving husband Frank Lutz.
