Hey folks, The Taking of Arianna Grayson – The Second Book of the Serial Vampire Series will be officially launched on March 1st.

As a special thank you to my most patient fans – Arianna is enrolled in the Kindle Select program which allows me to present the book to you for free for a limited time.

From March 1st through 5th, you can get the latest in the Serial Vampire series for nada, zippo, zilch. Amazon Prime users can get this benefit for the next 90 days!

After that date – it will return to it’s normal 99 cent price tag.

What’s this one about? Well, we re-introduce a new character to the Serial series – Arianna Grayson – who takes us through the harrowing chase for the serial killer known as Allister the Annihilator. When she finally catches up to the fiend, she discovers that there’s more to him than being a deranged lunatic. In a struggle for her life, she makes a choice with terrible consequences and her life changes forever.

Without dealing spoilers – I can tell you that YES – Jack the Ripper returns in this installment!

Greetings to my defenders of the realm!

Before we get too far into the discussion, I’d like to wish you all a very happy holiday season.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, Festivus (for the rest of us), Saturnalia, Winter Solstice, Pancha Ganapati and any other I missed (apparently Ramadan was in August this year).

This year was an interesting one to say the least. I joined SB Nation Tampa Bay as a columnist for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lightning and University of Florida Gators athletics.

I’m now co-editor for the Bucs and editor for the Gators.

I’ve also set up our internet radio station SB Nation Tampa Bay Live and host two shows, Blue Thunder – a Tampa Bay Lightning based sports talk show on Wednesday Nights and The Big Show – a show dedicated to the biggest stories on the mothership.

In addition to my sports writing career (which I’m very excited about, by the way), I’ve also launched the 99 Centers line of e-books. Now, it hasn’t exactly gone as I’ve planned as my sports writing seemed to take over every aspect of my free time.  My original vision was to have a new 99 centers book coming out every month of the year – alternating between the three lines.

Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.

However, now that the football season is winding to a close (and the Buccaneers return to the cellar is just about complete), I’ll finally have more time to focus on my fiction.

There’s also some other developments that I’ll reveal later down the line that will enable me to fulfill my promise to you, my dedicated fan base.

In the next couple weeks, you’ll start to see action pick up on the three 99 center lines:

Updated news on the next installments of each of the series as well as a complete redesign of the Darien site that will plunge you even further within the mythology of the interstellar necromancer.

Serial, Continuum Force and Darien will each have installments released in the first quarter of 2012 and hopefully that will allow me to begin fulfilling the promise I began with the 99 center books.

As an apology to all my readers for the delay in the second installments – I will offer each second installment of all the series for free for at least one week of its initial release (on Amazon and Smashwords).

Stay tuned for that and definitely subscribe to this RSS feed, because I will be updating this blog before anywhere else.

Thank you for all of your support in 2011. It was a fun year and I saw a lot of growth in myself, my desires and my fiction.

I believe that 2012 is going to be the best year yet!

Feliz Navidad and Happy Holidays!

Your faithful servant,

JC De La Torre


 Times are tough in today’s economy. Not everyone has the financial wherewithal to purchases some of these high tech reading devices like Amazon’s amazing Kindle.

Luckily for those of us who lack a Kindle but still want the benefits of e-reading and paying Kindle prices, Amazon now has a free Kindle Application for your Computer.

In addition to the apps on IPAD, IPhone and Droid, Kindle on the PC enables you to read your Kindle Books on a laptop or desktop computer.

As I ramp up my Kindle offerings (look for an announcement very soon),  you have full access to the benefits of Kindle e-books no matter what your reading device is (I don’t know about other readers like B&N Nook – if someone with a Nook could elighten me on that I’d appreciate it).
