Hey gang,

I just wanted to let all of our subscribers to JC De La Torre’s the Final Word know that this blog is being relocated to our new Transmissions From Atlantis site.

You’ll still get updates on the goings on of me and the coming works – but you’ll also get access to our podcasts and commentary on the goings on in the world of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror.

I appreciate everyone’s interest and support of this blog and I hope you’ll all join me over at the new digs.

Hey gang, you’re running out of time to nab the Taking of Arianna Grayson absolutely free! When the clock strikes midnight, the book returns to it’s list price of 99 cents.

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


And you thought I only posted when whoring out my products!

Nope, this blog is for news, opinion and pretty much whatever else I choose to write about. I actually have some thoughts percolating on some posts I think will interest you…but for now, here’s a bit of quick news.

Hot of the presses, here’s the new cover for Serial – the Taking of Arianna Grayson scheduled to be released in the next few weeks.

Sexy and frightening all at the same time, right?

Well, don’t worry defenders of the realm, the cover is alluring but the book stays true to Allister’s credo. Speaking of the book, it’s coming along well -it will be a lot longer than #1 so I’m not sure if it will be quite ready by my target day of August 30th. We may be looking at a Labor Day release.

It’s still well within the promised 60 day window so hopefully you Fangheads won’t hold it against me too much!

Anywho, feel free to comment away on the cover – love it? Hate it?

For those of you who have eagerly been awaiting the release of Serial – the Beginning, the first book of the Serial Vampire Series – your wait is over (at least if you have Amazon).  The book has gone live in the Amazon Kindle store.

You can expect the book to appear on IBookStore (IPad & IPhone), Sony, Nook, and all other reading devices within the next couple of weeks.

Also, if you use twitter – some of your favorite vampires have just joined.

Find Allister @AllistertheVamp, Arianna @AriannaGrayson, and Jack @JacktheRipperWC. Of course…that’s if you want vicious bloodthirsty vampires to be aware of you…I don’t know if I would.

Book 2 can be expected next month. As always, for the latest info, visit

Here’s the breakdown:
