After months of debating about this, I have finally decided to release a writing course. So, if you or anyone you know is interested in writing, please check it out! You can find the program by clicking here.
The great thing is, anyone who buys the course gets a discount on the Writer’s Conference I’ve also decided to hold in October!
I am very excited about both these things and could definitely use your help in spreading the word. With nearly thirty books published (and more coming every year!) I have learned a lot about both the craft and the business of writing and it’s time to share that with the world.

Okay folks, after royal hosing up the first campaign, we’re back with a new and improved version – call it Star Mage 2.0! We have a much more manageable goal, better rewards, a new artist and the first issue is already completed!
To pledge your support, go here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1954568853/star-mage
Basically the way this works is you can contribute as little as $1 to whatever you want. The more you contribute, the better the reward you get for being a backer.
Better yet – you won’t be charged ANYTHING until the project is funded 29 days from now. If it fails to reach its goal, you will not be charged a cent.
StarMage is sci-fi fantasy geared for YA crowd – it is kid safe (no nudity/sex or gratuitous violence). Think Harry Potter in Space.
You can help one of two ways….
First: back me up!
It’s easy (especially if you’ve ever bought anything from Amazon)!
• Go to the link above.
• Click the green “Back this Project” button
• Choose your amount you feel comfortable with (again, this won’t charge for 29 days….or ever if we don’t get funded)
• Pick the reward level associated with the amount you contributed
• Check out like you would at Amazon!
Second: Help spread the word!
Maybe you’re not into comics. Maybe you don’t have kids or think sci-fi is baloney. Or you just don’t have the funds right now to contribute. That’s fine – you can still do me a huge solid by getting the world out to your peeps – co-workers, family and friends. Anyone you think might have the slightest interest. If you do the social media thing: tweet it, blog it, LJ it or FB it! The more people know about the more chance it will have to be successful.
Thanks guys! Appreciate any help you can give.

Transmissions From Atlantis Comics is proud to announce the addition of Franco Cespedes to our artist lineup. Franco joins Ray Dillon as illustrator on our flagship title, Star Mage.
An illustrator from Costa Rica, Franco is an accomplished artist with numerous credits in the indie comics world including Black Jack Press’ Rustlers, Badlands and his own creator owned projects, Asusto and El Hallazgo.
In 2006, Franco formed his own animation company, Quinema Animation Studio, dedicated to digital advertising and animation developing original content for entertainment. He worked there as art director and senior animator. In 2010 he developed the animation series Chotico Costa Rica, which was broadcast on Costa Rican National Television and received rave reviews.
“‘I’m so happy for the opportunity for be part of STARMAGE story,” Cespedes said after finding out the news he was chosen from a group of over 60 artists. Cespedes will be taking on the role of lead illustrator for Star Mage, formally manned by Ray Dillon.
“Franco was the clear choice,” Star Mage Creator and co-owner of TFA Comics JC De La Torre said, “He was the only artist to truly capture the essence of Star Mage the same way Ray Dillon did. We feel that Franco will be not only an excellent successor to Ray but truly help us take Star Mage to a whole new level.”
Dillon’s continuing role with the project is undetermined at this time but De La Torre is hopefully he will find a place with the project.
“I can’t tell you how thankful I am for Ray Dillon,” De La Torre said, “Not only is Ray an amazing artist but I consider him and his lovely wife Renae friends. Ray bent over backwards to accommodate my lack of knowledge of the industry and helped me learn so much. I am eternally grateful to what Ray and I were able to accomplish with Star Mage #1 and I can’t wait for the world to see the foundation that Ray built that will allow talented artists like Franco to continue on. I’m hopeful that in some way, Ray will remain involved in Star Mage and our other projects here at TFA Comics.”
Franco has a beautiful command of colors as well as a brilliant technique that makes him the perfect choice to work for Transmissions From Atlantis.
