In 2013, I created my book publishing startup Solar Six, which first published How to Kill a Superhero, a transgressive new book series of novels combining superheroes, fantasy/sci fi, and the erotic. After the success of the first book in the series, I went on to write and publish 13 Secret Cities, a thriller that takes the world of social justice and pits it against a journey to the Aztec underworld, seen through the eyes of a young woman who must face the god and goddess of death. I am publishing its sequel, 9 Lords of Night, this year.

I have more than 20 years of experience as a journalist. I have written and edited for Ars Technica, The Wirecutter, and I teach journalism at Northwestern University. This year I am launching my first film, Beyond Built. It is a short form documentary and will release in July.

Indie and self published books are currently in the same playing field with traditionally published book. That is today's reality. But crafting a professionally published book requires professional help. This includes editors, copy editors, designers, web costs, and even ISBN numbers.  There is no other book imprint like Solar Six, and there is no one like Cesar Torres. He is not just an author, he is an innovator, bringing a new level of creativity to the publishing world thanks to his 20 years of experience working in digital strategy and Internet technologies. This is the future of novels and books.
