icons_box_48 When is Strange Fate coming out?
Lisa is currently writing the book. It will be published when it is ready. Yes, we all know how long everyone has been waiting. Good things are worth the wait...

Ask L. J.

on 26 November 2012. Posted in Ask L. J.

How do you feel about the Vampire Diaries TV show?

I think it is a brilliant story, brilliantly written, beautifully acted, with terrific direction, cinematography, and music.  I couldn’t improve it (except perhaps to image Nina blond and put Meredith back, and a few other things).  Of course, I still wish that someone as talented as Kevin Williamson would come along and tell the story the way it is told in the books, but that doesn’t dull my appreciation of the version that is out.

Will there be more delicious Delena moments in Midnight?

Book_TheVampireDiaries6Shadow Souls is the book I have enjoyed writing the most since the original Vampire Diaries book, The Awakening.   I didn't worry about going into a different dimension and crossing the boundary between "urban fantasy" and "high fantasy."  I just followed my heart and wrote.

And I can't deny that there is a strong chemistry between Damon and Elena.  But this is, after all, a love triangle, with Stefan at the other point.  And with Stefan back, Elena's guilt is enormous.  I think that I may have gone with my own personal feelings a little too far in Shadow Souls--and now poor Damon is racked with human emotions and reactions to Elena.  Anyway, I hope that the Delena squad understands that, well, those problems may make Damon end up doing things that he otherwise wouldn't do.  Besides, Damon is the Bad Boy of the Vampire Diaries.  He has to do some naughty things in order to keep his mind at ease.

Anyway, brace yourself for Midnight—and keep Shadow Souls on hand to read if you get worried, and be prepared for a wild ride.

I like your strong female characters. Why do you write about them?

Because I want to create role models for teenage (and even younger) girls who read my books.  If you look at the books, just about every heroine has a future career or goal in mind (even fickle Elena Gilbert is determined to one day return to the Dark Dimension and help free the slaves).  Some of my characters, like Rashel Jordan of The Chosen, and Jez Redfern of Huntress (both from the Night World series) are already immersed in their careers as vampire-hunters.  Poppy North (also Night World, as are the next few girls) has an ambition to travel the world, and Mary-Lynnette Carter wants to become an astronomer.  Hannah Storm wants to be a paleontologist (although these days she’s probably got her hands full helping to run Circle Daybreak.)

Some of my characters don’t start out as strong girls.  They start out as shy, introverted or gentle girls, like Cassie Blake of The Secret Circle, or Jenny Thornton of The Forbidden Game.  Then the story is about how they become stronger, through their terrifying experiences and their concern for other people.  Strange Fate has this kind of a heroine, Sarah Strange.

About Twilight . . .

Sorry, but I don’t comment on Twilight at all, now, except to say that I haven’t read it or seen the movies.  Yes, I do appreciate readers who know my books—some of them who have known them since the Vampire Diaries came out back in 1990-91 and Night World somewhat later—and who make lists of the similarities between my books and the Twilight series.  I appreciate most the readers who’ve read all my series and thus can make complete lists.  But I’m not sure what, if anything, I might “do” about the lists.

Why do you write urban fantasy?

I suspect it is because it was fantasy literature that had the most influence on me when I was a child and adolescent.  I’ve often said that as a child I was certain that magic must exist, and that I would find it.  But by the time I was twelve or thirteen I realized that if I wanted magic I was going to have to make it for myself.  I was already a writer by then—I’d started with poetry when I was four or five, and showed my work to teachers by age 6.  But I was a storyteller from a much younger age than that.  As far as I can remember, I always had several stories going on in my head and many of them partially written down.  My first two published books were only “urban fantasy” in the sense that C. S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia are.  But my first bestsellers were the next books I wrote, The Vampire Diaries.  Once I got started with vampires and witches and so on, I got so many letters (yes, snail mail—this was the old, old days) asking me to write more that I did write more.

I want to write a book, but I don’t know what about. How do you get inspired?

I’m not going to be much help, I’m afraid.  I am always doing one story or another in my head, so you could say that my problem is being too inspired—many of my stories never get written down because I can’t keep up with the thoughts in my mind.  There is one exception.  For ten years I suddenly had writer’s block, before the end of the Night World series.  My sister’s husband was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, and my mother with terminal cancer.  While I was immersed in this, I had no inspiration at all.  I couldn’t finish the book I was in the middle of writing.  There were no stories in my head.  That was the worst time of my life, and I could find no way to break through the block.  But I tried meditation, going without reading or watching videos at all so I was stuck in my own head, taking care of toddlers, writing just any old junk on a keyboard, writing in a notebook instead of on computer, writing diary entries, and writing nonfiction.  Nothing helped me, but it might help you.

I want to be an author someday . . . How do I become a writer?

I think there are two things I would advise for someone who wants to be a writer.  The first is to keep reading—not just vampire books, but any and all books that even slightly catch their interest.  Reading will open the world to you.

And, second, write a little something every day.  It can be as simple as a long text conversation (but remember that when you’re sending in your first book, grammar counts!) or writing in a diary, or scribbling down an idea for a story.  But the absolute best training is to try to write stories in a normal conversational style, to keep a blog that you update frequently, to write fanfic, or to write poetry (if you want to be a poet—or even if you don’t.)

Fanfic? Is it okay for me to write fanfic based on your work?

Of course.  I’d be a hypocrite and an idiot to try to stop it.  I don’t mind what you do with my characters as long as you don’t rub my nose in it.  I might even run a contest for the most interesting (G-rated) fanfic ever written in all the years since my various series first came out.  The same with art—which I’m glad to see, always.

Will you link my blog or site to your site?

Yes.  Just send me the link, and a brief description of what your site is.  If it’s for adult fanfic—you know what I mean—just tell me so I can include it in the link section.  I am very sorry to have dropped the ball on two or three foreign blogs that wanted me to link to them.  With my old site, it took a long time and a lot of money to change anything about the site.  I hope this site will be different.

I really enjoyed your Vampire Diaries books. What should I read next?

Book NightWorld 0 SeriesIf you liked Vampire Diaries, then you might enjoy my Night World series--it's primarily about vampires, but it also mixes in werewolves, shapeshifters, witches, etc. In these stories, you'll find vampires who've fallen helplessly in love with their human soulmates--but it's the law that any Night Person who loves a human must be punished by death. If you like Damon, you'll probably also like the vampires Ash Redfern, Quinn, and Morgead--not to mention James Rasmussen of Secret Vampire, the first book in the Night World series. (BTW, you can find the first chapter of Secret Vampire in Sneak Peeks).

Hi, LJ., I'm so lost on what books to buy and read of yours, I refuse to buy anything with a ghost writer attached to it and am not sure how to know the different when purchasing an e-book please send me a list of your work. I don't want any money going to the publishers that tricked you and stole you work so please only send me the titles that are free and clear of them. what happened to you is horrible. My father is a metal artist and I've watch him struggle to keep the bottom feeders away from his designs. They are always lurking about at the art show with their damn cameras, talentless losers praying on the true artists. I want to support you so please tell me which books are safe and truly yours. Thank you so much, Vilate Dyer

Probably the best way to see what is written by LJ and not by ghostwriters can be found under the Bibliography page.

Hello Admin. I wanted to know if you're willing to clarify something? About the Vampire Diaries. I'm sorry if this brings up bad memories. It says on her booklist that L.J. wrote Phantom but it says under the Bibliography page that she didn't write anything after Midnight. I have been reading my g/f's copy of Phantom but I'm against buying anything myself if Alloy has replaced L.J. with a ghost writer. The following are subtle hints I wondered about from Phantom (SPOILERS AHEAD)

Stefan's "sapphire" ring protected him from the sun when we all know by now it's lapis lazuli. Elena in the beginning saw a picture of her as the prom queen and mused over it since the Guardians changed the timeline. Near the end of the book, she was surprised when she saw another picture of her as prom queen. In the original books Klaus used Tyler to enter someone Vicki's house. Now Stefan can't enter a house unless that person lives there. Has Phantom been altered by a ghost writer?

if you are looking for a book/series to buy, i suggest the night world series. They are one of my favorite series by Smith. i highly recommend that you buy those, because i cant even begin to count how many times i have re-read each book.They are definitely worth buying.

Hi LJ,

I came across your books on Amazon today and wanted to get in touch regarding a TV show we are developing. It will be focussed around vampires and we are looking for a female presenter who has a keen interest.

Would you be interested in presenting something like this? Alternatively if you know someone who would like to, please don’t hesitate to put me in touch.

Many Thanks,

Doug

I have not found much news on the final book to the series after four failed release dates... I was curious, what is the plan? Do you have any news on a more accurate release date? Have you completely given up on the series or put it on the side burner? I just want to know so I'm not disappointed by another fan-trolled release date. I'd really appreciate a reply, just want to be kept in the loop. Thanks!

dear L. J. Smith,
I am a major fan. i have some questions on the vampire diarires, I'm not sure how well you can answer them because as i just foung out today you not writing the book anymore. i've read all the vampire diaries book, and one of the stefan diaries. in shadow souls when damon and elena are on their way to Bloddeuwedd's party damon was about tell her what everyone missed in the story of the Salvatore brothers simultanelously killed eachother through the heart, but he was interuppted and now you dron't even have a chance to go back to that (pg 467 of shadow souls). Which brings me to my next question; when did that happen? i mean damon and staefan killing eachother through thre heart in the first stefan diaries which is the inly stefan diaries book i've read, none of that happend. in the first vampire diaries book the awakening stefan tells the story of how kathrine died by suiced and in the first stefan diaries book she died in the church, (continued)

obviously she didn't die in either of those situations becaused later we find out she never died until elena killed her. so which of the two stories did stefan and damon know well think they knew happen? which brings we to my next question;in stefan diaires kathrine is described to have brown hair and brown eyes, in the vampire diaries she is described like elena:golden blond hair and lapis lazuli eyes. i don't understand. i am a delena fan and i understand you are,thats how you got ''fired'' i am so sorry and it sadens me because as a young reader who loves to read i try to stay loyal to my favorite authors and follow the rest of the series but now ican't as in you don't right them. i find this outragious that they'd fire you, especialy becasue the growing relationship between damon and elena was a part of that, because that is one of the resons i kept reading and made me love it more. my best wishes to you in getting back what is yours trulyL:The Vampire diaries the way you choose.

LJ Smith DID NOT write Stefan's diaries that is why they do not match up. The last book Miss Smith wrote was The Return: Midnight. Also, Miss Smith never committed to being a Delena fan. Miss Smith was committed to developing Damon and Bonnie's relationship as much as she was to Damon and Elena. She has said, since she has no way of knowing who she would choose to be with who in the end.

Dear Lisa,
I'm sure that you are super busy and I'm sure that people have asked you this question a million times but I was just wondering if you had a release date for your book Strange Fate. I ask this because Barnes & Nobles has the Audio Book that you can pre-order, so I was wondering if maybe the actual book was being released soon. I LOVE that Night World series, I think that they are so amazing. Please respond to my question if you have time. :-)

LJ only wrote the 1st 7 books, the last one being the Return: Midnight. She has nothing to do with the Stefan's Diaries either. Under the author tab on this website you will see Bibliography. That page lists all of LJ Smith's works. If you see "Created By LJ Smith" it is a ghost written book only a cover that states "written by LJ Smith" is written by her. Amazon and most other sites do not label their products correctly and have ghost written books as being written by LJ. Always look at the photo of the cover if you are not sure to confirm it says written by, not created by. Hope this helped! ;-)

She has shared the Synopsis of this book with her fans on the forum at this link: http://www.ljanesmith.net/forum/ask-l-j-smith/16342-the-forbidden-game-sequel?start=100 .

She is very close to completing it, she actually just posted a new blog yesterday giving us a small status update as well as a couple interesting goodies especially if you are a Nigh World & TVD fan! There is no date yet, there will not be a date until it is in the publishers hands. Here is the link to her most recent blog: http://www.ljanesmith.net/blog/2013/591-exiting-news

I never said she rewrote the night world series, I said it was re-released. I get that she's *thisclose* to finishing it, but when you've waited since the 90s for a book, it is disheartening to keep getting a run around. I think LJ Smith is a talented writer, I just don't think I'll ever read a series by her unless it is 100% published.

Okay, i love all the books l.j. smith has written, but what concerns me is the vampire diaries. Which books DID she write? Because i know some are continuing to be written by a ghost writer, but i would like to know which books lj smith did write before she was fired from HarperTeen. And the newest secret circle books are also written by a ghost writer using lj smiths name, but which of the TVD books are?

When in doubt, look athttp://www.ljanesmith.net/author/bibliography. That is the link to her Bibliography page. When buying books, if you see "Created By" that means it is ghostwritten. Only if the book says "Written By" was it truly written by that author. LJ has only written 7 TVD books and 3 TSC books. I hope this helps you!

Hello L.J.Smith! I didn't really want to ask you something i just really wanted to express how annoyed i was from finding out that a ghost writer was to write your final The vampire diaries books! It is totally rude and unacceptable what they did to you and I, and I bet most fans, were and are raging at this!
I guess we wont ever really get the proper and real ending of those books just a ghost version! But I wanted thank you for the great ups, and the awesome downs of the books! x Olivia

Hey, I don't like how the story flowed in Vampire Diaries, it might've been better if Elena would end up with Damon. Why don't you try writing something unique; not following the usual pattern (the lover of the main protagonist in the first chapter, would still end up with her in the end). Why not revise your story and make the main protagonist end up with the guy/girl in the middle? You know what? I really love Vampire Diaries especially the Delena scenes! but it's just so disappointing that Elena would really end up with Stefan after everything with Damon. I think you just revised the storyline of Twilight series by just revising a little more of Damon's characteristics from jacob while Stefan from edward. why not make stefan the villain? That would make the story really much more exciting!!! I didn't mean to offend you L.J.Smith. I just wanna voice out what I feel. Have a nice day!

I'm not sure if you noticed: but every book in The Vampire Diaries after Midnight is not written by Lisa. So if you have any complaints I would take it up with the company who forced Lisa to give up her books and the ghostwriters who are writing them. Its the ghostwriters who are wanting to make the books more like the tv show, and taking away its inner light. Not Lisa.

The TV show is NOT based off the books. It is loosely inspired by. Julia Peck claims she is writing it without Alloy butting in, but who really knows. It's best to think of them as two separate entities of you will drive yourself batty. The show doesn't follow any storyline from the book I can think of directly. Once in awhile, you will notice a scene in the show that is a kick back to the book.

Most of the characters will be back in Strange Fate. I have not read that she intends to do any "spin offs". Strange Fate is to be the final book in the series and is over 1000 pages. Pretty sure I read in her blog or forum that SF will tie up a lot of loose ends;)

LJ is focusing on finishing Strange Fate, atm. She has given fans a synopsis for Rematch on her forum.

Um Spoiler Warning: Lisa was always going to bring him back to life. In the very last chapter it is shown that he is still very much alive (For his two lovely maidens, Bonnie and Elena no less!). All books after Midnight are not written by Lisa, so I have no idea how L.J. originally planned to bring Damon to life. The only good thing about Lisa no longer writing the books is that we can imagine our own endgame however we want. Bamon, Delena, Stelena, all the fans win :) ... :(

Hi Heather,

Lisa is working on the conclusion to Night World right now. She has many ideas for other books in the future. The one that is nearest to being published is The Last Lullaby. You can read more about it on the home page of this site.

For writing tips, check out this Q and A from Lisa. http://www.ljanesmith.net/author/burning-fan-q-a

If you haven't joined the Forum yet, you should. There are lots of fun games, polls, and discussions. Plus Lisa stops by as often as she can to answer fan questions.

I hope to see you there. :-)

0 # The Vampire Diaries-What should have happenedGuest 2013-05-01 09:48
Dear L.J Smith,
I was gravely disappointed to find out a ghostwriter would be writing the rest of your absolutely amazing vampire diaries. To be honest, you are the reason I want to be an author someday! I wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed your books and how much you have inspired me into my own vampire-werewol f-witch (pretty much any supernatural species) world! I also very selfishly wanted to ask you, if it wouldn't be too much trouble and if you're not busy (I wouldn't want you to be distracted instead of writing more world-changing books) I liked reading what would have happened if you had continued the Vampire Diaries. But never got fully satisfied knowing The Hunters was written by someone else. I was wondering if you could let me know about your version. What actually would have happened in Phantom, Evensong and Eternity. And... possibly more if you had planned to. Thank you Miss Smith, for everything. Please let me know.

Miss Smith doesn't go into too much detail, I don't know if she had already planned it but I would have been thrilled to read a published online manuscript or even a short blurb or plot. But that's the way a crystal like the Vampire Diaries crumbles. :(

Will the Nightworld series be completed? The wild powers were coming together, and Circle Daybreak was working to win the battle of the millinium. Will we get to see all the wild power characters come together to fulfill the prophecy? I hope so! I love your books and hope you keep writing as well as find someone who will let you publish your ideas instead of taking them from you! Love you!!

She will also be releasing a new book called The Last Lullaby(formall y Brionwy's Lullaby). It will be a new stand alone series, but it originally started out as a part of Strange Fate. The story got so big, LJ had no choice but to remove it! Check out more info on The Last Lullaby at these links: http://www.ljanesmith.net/links/just-for-fun/582-the-next-big-thing-the-last-lullaby

I've read all the books in the series including the ghostwritten books. I noticed that there was a change in direction with the hunters series, but who am I to judge, but now I know why. I am appalled by the behaviour of alloy entertainment. This shouldn't be able to bappen where someone has their own work taken away from them. I wasn't too bothered by the idea of the series and the books being different. It wasalmost like two entities - which it really is. I am wondering if there is anything that can be done to help? Seems such a shame that it just ends that way..

First, the To: L.J SMITH isn't letting me send anything to her...
You most likely get this a lot. But I am a HUGE FAN of your's, and your Night World series. I don't really have a favourite book, since well all of them are my favourites, since it is so hard to actually choose, haha.
I looked at the 'Ask L.J' part of the site, and seen the 'Fanfic? is it okay for me to write fanfic based on your work?' and read your answer to it.
Since you allow that, are you fine with Cross-overs? Like someone writing a Fanfiction of your work, but adding in their own character, or based about their character but in your story world with the characters?
I was just wondering, since you are fine with allowing people to write fanfic's based on your stories. If I could write a Fanfic based on 'The Night World', though as a cross-over so I can have my own character in it. And have her being a soul-mate to one of the Main male characters.
Is that alright?

She is very close to completing it, there is no date yet, and there will not be a date until it is in the publishers hands. Only trust dates you seen on THIS WEBSITE. Sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble use "Dummy Dates". NOTE: The "dummy Dates" you see on those sites DO NOT COME FROM MISS SMITH and NEVER HAVE. In a recent email response to a fan, Miss Smith hopes that Strange Fate will be ready and out sometime next year.

Hello. My name is Carolina and I come from Polski. Recently I was a fan, The Vampire Diaries''. I've read all the books that I could get it in our library. I watched a few episodes of the show, and I'm curious if you agree to these changes in the show? Serial lot different from Mrs. books and I'm curious if you agree to these changes? Greetings from Polish.

At the top of this page, under the tab "How do you feel about The Vampire Diaries TV show?" LJ wrote:

"I think it is a brilliant story, brilliantly written, beautifully acted, with terrific direction, cinematography, and music. I couldn’t improve it (except perhaps to image Nina blond and put Meredith back, and a few other things). Of course, I still wish that someone as talented as Kevin Williamson would come along and tell the story the way it is told in the books, but that doesn’t dull my appreciation of the version that is out."

Hi L.J

I'm watching Secret Circle and up to the point where John Blackwell tore Adam and Cassie apart...

Please tell me they get back together, its killing me that they are apart and i really want them together.

If anyone else knows if they end up.. pretty please tell me.

P.S. Don't tell me to read the book, i will when i get my hands on them.

Thanks

Hello Meggan, LJ was NOT apart of the creative process or writing for the show at ALL. So the only part LJ had in The Secret Circle was writing the 1st 3 books in the original TSC trilogy. After those three books, LJ no longer writes those books either. BTW, the show did not follow the books AT ALL except for a very few small details.

Sorry there is no answer for your question here :sigh:

There has not been any official news on that. Miss Smith would have to get a production company to pick it us as well as a screenplay writer(writing screenplays is different then writing books. About a year or two ago, LJ had asked her currant agent to see who they could pitch her books to in hopes that they could be turned into film. LJ said her 1st choice would be The Forbidden Game to be adapted to screen.

Hope this helps.

Dear Ms.Smith,
I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely loveyour work. I have read every single one of your novels and love each and every one of them. I was quite disappointed to hear that you would no longer be writing The Vampire Diaries. Although I have continued reading the works of the ghost writer, I must say she/he is not nearly as talented as you are. After reading the first two works of the ghost writer I was disappointed in the way she/he made Elena seem confused about her feelings for Stefan and Damon and a bit childish and how she/he discontinued the possible romance between Bonnie and Damon. It seemed more like the TV show than the great novels you have written. Don't get me wrong, I love the TV show, although it has strayed far from the book. I know it is out of your power to continue to write them but I do think that your writing is excellent and I don't think any author can be as great as you.
Love Always,
Mercy

Hi my name is Claire Gilbert. I have seen only the first few episodes of the Vampire Diaries (not the books) and I was wondering that when it said the Gilbert's came on the Mayflower if that was true history or false. I googled Gilbert and Mayflower, and the name John Gilbert came up (Elena's father and my grandfather). Is the Gilbert family that you based the book/tv show on real in history or descendants of the Mayflower passengers? My family and I would really be interested to know because we do not know much about how our family's history and how we got to North America. This would really help!!!

Hello Claire. The TV show is more of it's own story and has its own writers. Miss Smith had no part in the creation/writin g for the TV series. Some character names may match up but that is where the similarities end. The storyline your talking about is only a part of the show. I would also like to note, that Smith Smith only wrote the 1st 7 books in the series, the rest are written by ghostwriters and she has no control over those as well. Sorry I couldn't give you the answer you were searching for. Maybe try asking the writers for the show like Julia Peck.

I have read ever book you have ever published you have this incredible talent of making me want more and more of your literature. That's not a bad thing seeing as I love to read, so thank you, but I cant help but wonder if you will ever release Strange Fate. The 10 and final sequence to the Nigh World series. I've been searching for years to find a final release date but it seams to keep changing. I understand that your busy with other novels such as The Vampire Diaries and the Secret Circle(Which are both amazing series)but will you ever finish Night World and when do you intend to publish it if you do??
Thank you so much for your time. I am a huge fan of your work.

Hello Samantha, Miss Smith is working to finish Strange Fate as we speak. It is over 1000 pages!!! As for all those release dates you mentioned "that keep on changing", those HAVE NEVER come from Miss Smith. The publishers send out "Dummy Dates" to sites like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Miss Smith has no control over that. She will not give a release date until she has one. As far as TSC and TVD she has not written either series since last publishing The Vampire Diaries: The Return, Midnight. Harper/Alloy removed her from writing the series in 2011. After recovering from the blow of losing two creations she loved very much, she began working diligently on Strange Fate.

(Continued) While writing SF, there was a storyline that became so large she had to remove it from the book and make it it's own stand alone story called "The Last Lullaby" which Miss Smith has already begun working on it's press release so it should be out in 2014. Miss Smith HOPES that Strange Fate will also be out in print also next year.

I love all your books. You're my favorite writer. I have a question. I love the two series is based on the novel of your. I mean vThe Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle. However, The Secret Circle ceased to be transmitted. It is my favorite show, but unfortunately it is very short because there is only one season. Why there was a break in the issue? Will he be a second season? Can it so wonderful series will end on the first season?
Best regards and I look forward to the answer

Hello Erica, Miss Smith had nothing to do with either of the TV shows unfortunately. As for the actual books, Miss Smith wrote only the 1st 7 books in The Vampire Diaries series up to The Return: Midnight and She only wrote the 1st 3 books in The Secret Circle up to The Power. Both of the books were part of a "packaged book deal" with Harper/Alloy and they took both series away from her in 2011. If you see "Created By L.J. Smith" on a cover, instead of "Written By L.J. Smith" the book was written by someone else/ghostwrite r. The rumor as to why TSC show was canceled was the cost to produce were way to high and the ratings didn't justify the cost.

Hi L.J. Smith! I hate to start off by saying I'm a writer because you probably get that a lot and I feel like that would get annoying when people constantly tell you they write, but it is what I do. I love your novels. I've read all of the Night World series, The Vampire Diaries series and in the process of finishing the Secret Circle. (Just thought I would throw that in there.) But any who, I was reading the questions and comments and all and I noticed that you said you aren't necessarily inspired when you write. I never really do either. I'm like you and just kind of write whatever pops in my head but I cant ever get any of it to come together and I feel like when I start a book I ramble and none of it gets anywhere. Any advice would be really appreciated!! Thank you for your time!! And good luck with Strange Fate! My friends and I are dying to read it (:

These stories are of reality reflection to a man who is trying to scream out to the world his tragedy, an impossibly imagined capacity beyond limits of human as an indication to what a highly intelligent born person would live his life doing and thinking. It is a shame that he cannot find relief no matter how many personalities he is trying to fit in , eventually he is begging for a stop sign that he wishes to be the best woman of his dreams. It is a shame to say that real women have been hurt for this novel to have come to manifestation of movie in our reality cinemas. No matter how much a vampire is trying he just need to find someone like Elena`s figure that can accept him for who he is and still stand by his side. TB

Hi L.J! Here is yet another I'm an author person. Sorry! I read you're book series Night world in 5th grade. I loved it! I am a book worm (if you know what Ar is, I broke the record at my school) and love to write. Last year on a road trip, I had a great dream about a book. At the end of the dream, and I will never forget it, was the title, emblazoned like fire "The dragon princess". There is just one thing: Can I use you're concept of Old Souls? Without them, my book would be pretty much busted. I chose to follow a career as an author way back in third grade. Now in 6th grade, I write big, emotional pieces. I really want to be like you. How do you describe vampires too? if you could tell me how to find the right words to write in an adventure, romance story, that would be great. I want to persue my dreams and make a couple of new Yorkers, and I want to make this book the first one eventually. I love your writing! I reread the entire night world 3 times! Can't wait for Strange fate

Hello Mam,
I, being a huge fan of TVD, have used a short scene from TVD Season 1, in my novel titled "HALF LIFE".

I've really enjoyed The Vampire Diaries books, they're the only books I've really enjoyed reading. I was wondering if you were going to maybe persue writing a series of books about The Originals? I've been wondering about it for a while if you've ever given it any thought so I just thought I would ask. Thanks!

Hi Ms. Smith. I love your novels!
I have tracked down the first 2 novels in the "Wildworld" series - apparently your first novel - and I was wondering when/if you plan to finish and write the third planned novel, whic, according to wikipedia, will be titled "Mirrors of Heaven."
Thank you :)
PS Can't wait for "Strange Fate" to be finished - just like half of the rest of the world, I'm sure!
PPS I'm sorry I also posted this question on the current contest page, which was the wrong place, for some reason when I clicked on the website, that was the first section that opened up. Anyways, sorry again!

Regarding Dark Visions, it was mentioned that there would be a sequel called "Blindsight" that was supposed to be released. Any word on how that is progressing? Or if it will be written at all?

Volume 1 is a bind up of 3 singular novels, all of which came out in 1996. I am guessing it took her roughly 2-3 months per novel? So for Volume 1, 6-9 months. That's what I am thinking, anyway.

I've been a longtime reader of L.J. Smith. She inspired me to write, whilst J.K. Rowling inspired me to read. I've nearly completed my 95,000 word manuscript, which I am extremely proud of. What would be the smartest way on getting an agent and sending it out into the publishing world? Or should I skip the agenting process? Thank's a ton Lisa! :)

Thanks for your kind words. Deginitely you need an agent, which is sort of a problem because of the economic situation. But the reason you need an agent is because of that same situation.

Even a poor agent (like my first) is often better than none. Don't ever take on an agent who asks you for money. They're scamming you. Just look in The Writer's Guide and keep sending queries to diferent agents until you get one.

My granddaughter is 12. Question: I have not read any of your books but the look like quite the book that I would like to read. But would you let a 12 year old young girl read any of your books. What would you call a young adult. I am just interested in your point of view.


THANK YOU

I think that it's fine for a 12 year old to read at least the first four books of The Vampire Diaires, the Secret Circle books, and The Night of the Solstice and Heart of Vlor.

There are no explicit sex in ANY of my books. I have lots of 10-12-year-old fans. You might want to skim some of The Forbidden Game and Dark Visions books to see if you feel they are okay for your granddaughter. But, yes, she is in the age group I wrote for.

I have adult fans too, mainly because of the vocabulary--not swearing, just a lot of hard words for middle graders. Avant-garde, abjure, and often poetry quotes.

I've read the forbidden game about a hundred times along with many of your other books and it has to be my favourite book of all time (even beats twilight) If you were to write a sequel I'd be so happy I'd probably wet myself and I'm sure most of my friends would too.

And how she's progressing on Strange Fate, I've been just dying to get my hands on it and read it when it comes out. Which leads me to my other question, has she got some kind of info on the release date to Strange Fate or if she's finished it?
I just LOVE the Night World, Dark Visions and Forbidden Games books, they are my favorite books, I must have read them over 50 times each :D
Thanks for any type of answer, Chey :P

0 # What did you think of TSC TV Show?Guest 2013-12-05 01:03
Hi L.J.,

I was hoping you could share with your fans some of your thoughts on the TV adaption of The Secret Circle. I've been looking for an interview where you discuss your thoughts, but I haven't been able to find anything.

I have watched the show and read all of the books, and obviously recognize the heavy digression from your original trilogy with the writing on the show.

What I am curious about is whether you felt the core of the characters were (somewhat) intact, if Cassie's struggle and acceptance with her magic and lineage was somewhat true to the psychological experience your Cassie felt in the books, what you thought of the writing on the show, and what the number one thing you would have liked to have seen changed would have been.

Thanks so much for taking the time to get back to your fans. I really hope you're able to respond to me.

I was wondering if you made that up or if it is real fact about celebration for Hecate. sorry if my question is confusing. By the way I absolutely love all your writing! I really hope you will be able to respond to me. thanks :D

Several of my friends and I love your books and we have learned that the paper copy will not be published but the audio copy is. Why is that? We would rather read your books then listen to them so that we may see things as they really are and put our own touch to the mental movie that is played when reading. Please make a request to publish the book on paper.
Your fan, Erin G.

Are you talking about Strange Fate? I've been hearing people say that some sites are listing the audio version as coming out soon. This information is false. Lisa is still writing the book so there is no way that it is coming out yet in any format. When it has a publication date that will be announced on this site and it will definitely come out in print form, so there is nothing to worry about.

If you are talking about her new Vampire Diaries fanfic, that is only going to be available as a Kindle book. If you don't have a Kindle you can still read it on your computer with a free app from Amazon.

I don't know when Into the Wood will be available. I'm guessing it will be awhile because only the first part of The War of Roses is coming out tomorrow. So first the second part of that will have to come out.

Kindle Worlds fanfics usually cost between $0.99 and $3.99 based on length. I think the VD ones are on the longer side so $3.99. I don't know for sure, though.

I'm french,so my englsh is not perfect,but I hope you read it even if I don't realy think L J read it one day.I only want to thank you,L J,for writting the vampire diaries series,because The Fury,and The Dark Reunion are the best books I ever read,and I read a lot of book,although I'm only 16.This story make me cry a lot,it scared me somtime,it make me dream...I don't even known a book can make me feel so much thinks,and if I really start to read,it's all because of thhese books,so it's because of you,and I 'll never tank you enough for that..I read them about 6 times in french,and I 'm reading them in English now,and it's much better!Of cours,I'm still reading the news vampire diries books,but it' not the same now it's not you who write.I realy hope that one day,you 'll finish this story the way you have imagine it,maybe on this web site...is that will be possible?

Dearest Lisa,

Hello! My name is Adriana & I am a huge fan of "The Vampire Diaries" in which I have all the books in every series & I even have the TV show on DVD & am just waiting on Season 5 to come onto DVD. Anywho, the new series which is posted on your website I just wanted to ask you the following - Can I get them in book form? Are they only available on Kindle? Please do let me know as I am very interested.

With much love,
You're favorite fan,

Adriana

Hi Adriana,
Hi,
I don't think Amazon makes any of their Kindle World books available in paper form. But you can still read Kindle books if you don't have a Kindle. Here is a link for a free download through Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000493771

It will allow you to read Kindle books on your computer, phone, or iPad. I hope this helps. :-)

I haven't kept up on the books written by the ghostwriter because like you I don't care to read them.
Here are the books that Lisa has written. All the rest of The Vampire Diaries were written by the ghostwriter.
The Awakening
The Struggle
The Fury
Dark Reunion
Nightfall
Shadow Souls
Midnight
and her new fanfics
Evensong: Paradise Lost
Evensong: The War of Roses

These are The Secret Circle books written by Lisa. The rest were ghostwritten

The Initiation
The Captive
The Power

Hi, I was wondering if the next night world book would be out this year, Strange Fate?
And I had a question about the Forbidden Game. Are you planning on writing another book to Forbidden Game?
Please let your fans know when you're ready to release Strange Fate, a lot of us can't wait to read it.

Hi, I was wondering what literature you got your inspiration from, for example Scarlett O'Hara & Rhett Butler from "Gone with the Wind", for Elena & Damon, & "Wuthering Heights." Did they play a key role for your characters? :D

I literally pray everyday that today will be the day that Smith has given the publisher night world strange fate. I'm so sad and depressed that the night world has been pushed to the last item of the list of importance. I do not mean sound mean or ungrateful. I just pray soon that strange fate will be out soon...I'm like the last of my friends that's holding onto it. I just want to know the endgame! :(

I know your probably asked this alot, but is it possible to make a fanfic of secret circle and your other books too?? I'm sure your busy with Night World and Vampire Diaries but if possible to do it later that would be awesome! Thank you so much for writing these books, I think they've made a big impact on my life. I was never really into romance or teen books until i read yours, and it gave me hope and inspiration for a soulmate!

+1 # My favorite book'sGuest 2014-07-15 03:42
I finished reading Night World in seventh grade... I'm going to start my college classes in less than a month... I'm kind of worried that she isn't ever going to publish Strange Fate. But another part of me is like No! She will publish it and it will be great because It's L.J smith and she made me addicted to reading books! like I went through Huntress, Black dawn, and Witch light in like one day I woke up at seven and finished by Five. So now I have this compulsion that every time I look at my book case and see the Night world books I come here and look for any scratch of evidence that Strange fate is coming. Its actually getting to the point that I'm cooking crazy conspiracy theories about her book company not letting publish Strange fate or like she's so caught up on making more books for those TV producers to rip apart she hasn't even thought of her other books or maybe the character's aren't talking to her any more... the last one being least likely.

Hi L.J Smith!
Before I became the obsessive reader I am there were few books I valued as much as your Night World series, and still the series hold such a place in my heart. As Ive seen above and read of before I know you are currently writing the last installment of the series, and I cant wait! Well, actually I can and will, haha. But I just wanted to let you know that the series has helped me escape from many events in my life in which I needed to leave my world and jump into that of fiction and endless love. So, yes I just wanted to say that if you have any doubts about how much your writing has inspired me, and how much the stories of Poppy and Raksha have molded my life, they need not be there. I look forward to the last installment of your book with an anticipation like nothing else. Best of luck and so much gratitude, Kayla Holland.

Hi I have been a fan for a long time and I have read a lot of your book and I loved the vampire diaries and the secret circle books but didn't realise the latter of the vampire diaries were not yours and they were disappointing . I'm not reading the last secret circle books but I really want to know how they were going to continue ( if they were going to) I want to download your version of the vampire diaries but I can't because I love in the uk and don't have a kindle(and my brother won't let me use his tablet to download the kindle app) is it possible for these stories to be made accessable anywhere else if so I would be really thankful and if not thank you for your time anyway

I have read most of your works and I have noted the dominance of vampires and witches in your writings, with some shapeshifter main characters as well. But you rarely use werewolves as main characters, if ever. Why is that?

I know you like writing about magic, but how did you come up with vampire and werewolves and hybrid' I mean t not typical things people like to write about. the places had to come from somewhere other than just your mind. did you choose to write about some places you saw growing up as a kid. I would just like to know how and why you came up with this vampire diaries world you've got me so hooked into.
thanks for reading this
