Lisa,

First off, I wanted to thank you for introducing me to the The Vampire Diaries. I would never have fallen in love with Stefan, or Stefan/Elena. And for that I am thankful. :)

Second, I am looking forward to the long-awaited, Strange Fate. I may not have been waiting for it as long as some, but nonetheless I am excited.

I am quite excited for the sequels you are working on, and any other new books. I like the sound of Eternity: A vampire love story. That involved a witch.. that sounds pretty awesome.

L. J. Smith
+11 # Hi JadeL. J. Smith 2011-02-15 08:08
I'll try to explain--once-- so that everyone gets it. I did the Vampire Diaries and the Secret Circle books as "work for hire." I was a very new author who wanted to see my books in the bookstore. But the two books I had written were in hardback and just weren't selling. I never saw them in bookstores. So I agreed to do "work for hire"--meaning that I would write the books, but that a kind of company called a book packager would own all the important rights. Before I wrote the Vampire Diaries, no one (including the book packager who was selling the books to a publisher) knew that the Vampire Diaries would be such bestsellers. And certainly no one could know that twenty years later, after I had done many other books for a differemt publisher, that were wholly mine: The Forbidden Game, Dark Visions, and the nine original Night World books, that there would be a world-wide craze about vampires. At first this simply seemed like a good thing, since I had a much better agent than twenty years ago when I wrote the original four books (up to Dark Reunion)) and she got me a new contract to do another trilogy, which will end with Midnight. But then, for some reason the book packagers who had let me write the first seven books--and the eighth, Phantom, decided to exercize their right to have an anonymous ghostwriter finish the series. This often happens (like with the Nancy Drew books, where many writers worked under the name Carolyn Keene) but it usually happens when a writer gets tired of writing, and usually the author is allowed to write outlines of the new books and have the ghostwriters work off these outlines. I don't know why, and I was given no reason, but the book packagers for whom I had done these vampire and witch books long ago, decided that they would rather do the outlines themselves, and have a ghost writer write them, than having me do it. They have the right to do this. But it is making me physically sick to go on explaining. I must put it behind me or I might get writer's block again. There is no possibility of fighting any longer. I'm so sorry, but I really have to get on with other things, other books. I don't have any choice. I hope you can understand this, Jade, and see that legally they have every right to do this. I would be really happy if you would try some of my other books, and don't forget that I wrote Midnight and the first draft of Phantom. If I were you, I would also check out the books that the ghost writer does. You will have all your familiar characters and you might like them more than you think. And this is the last time I will explain this.

I'm sorry, I understand you need to move forward and leave this in the past but there is one question that's sort of been bothering me and is related to the situation: Will what has happened have any impact on possible Secret Circle sequels, including Deep Waters?

How can we like the books that the ghost writer does, if the story not ends as you wanted it. We have read the books before because you wrote it. We have read it because we love the way YOU write. we love your imagination about Damon and Elena. and this is NOT the last time I say it: No L J. Smith = No book sales.

I am happy to sign in as a guest of this website, it is great and there is always new information being posted and new blogs. I fell in love with your books when I was in high school in the 90's and was happy to see them republished since I had lent mine out and never got them back. I am heartily sorry to hear that you will not be finishing the series. I am an L.J. smith fan first and a vampire diaries fan second. How could they remove you, if they were so bent on not seeing elena with damon, how could they let the vd show do what they do. It is a wreck because it is not your work. Only you should be responsible for anything with this name and I dont know if I would want to read the next set of books not by you. It is not a boycott, just a judgement. You are what made the vampire diaries what is is. Please keep us informed of any other stories you are writing that wont be changed for the sake of corporate people. :)

Since you`re not writing Vampires Diaries anymore (which I loved), does mean you will focus more on Strange Fate? I loved Night World even more than Vampire Diaries (which is saying something). Also, will there be more short stories on your website to come? :)

I just want to thank you for your wonderful books. I haven't had a chance to read all of them yet, but I have read Vampire Diaries, and Night World. I can't wait til the next books come out. Your characters are so unique and so very easy to fall in love with. I have to say I know many people love Stefan, but I'm hoping she ends up with Damon. Mainly because he is just so much more interesting and he has that bad boy thing going for him. My husband was a bad boy in school, not quiet as cruel as Damon but then agian my husband isn't a vampire. But with the right women they turn out to be the best men out there. And secretly have sweet and wonderful hearts. Thank you agian. Can't wait to read the next ones.

Dearest Lisa,

I am getting caught up on your blogging and news today and I am deeply saddened to hear of the mess Harpercollins created for you. If you do not continue writing the series, I have no reason to read it. It is your writing style that I love, not just the story. Much love to you in this troubled time. Don't lose faith, you are amazing. It is Harpercollins loss.

Either way I love vampires, especially yours, and Look forward to anymore that you will come out with. Damon and Julian fan here, but ultimately an LJ fan! I have loved all the trilogies (the most). Good luck in the future!

Thirdly, have you ever thought about doing a movie with the books?
And last, but not less important... I know you don't have nothing against Fanfiction... but have you ever read any story from there??

I posted my one current burning question in response to another post, but I wanted to also take a moment to say thank you. I am one of the adult readers who discovered you when The Vampire Diaries was originally published, right after The Struggle came out. It was love at first page for me! Thank you for taking the time to write, to share new worlds with us all. Even if Strange Fate were to take another decade or two, I will wait (albeit more impatiently with each passing year). More importantly, thank you for handling the situation that has your fans in such an uproar (and I am guessing was the "Real Life Emergency" mentioned on your website a few months ago) with such dignity and grace. Not many would be taking the time not only to correspond with fans but also to discourage heated reactions and encourage everyone to give the ghost writer (who I pity a bit at this point) a chance.

Yes, I am writing every day on Strange Fate (and now that I'm not doing it and TVD it's getting done faster) and Brionwy's Lullaby is a separate book, already half written. It's quite different from my Gothic fiction though--I'm trying to make it a bit more weighty. It's not really a part of the Night World series; you might call it a Night World Apocalypse alternative world.

You are literally one of my favourites authors ever, and that's certainly saying something, what with me being the worlds biggest bookworm. And I love all of your books! The firt books I read of yours were, I think, The Vampire Diaries, then The Secret Circle. I loved both of them! And, I swear, I developed a little 'crush' on Meredith and Faye. Seriously, they're one of my favourite characters of yours. Weirdly enough, Faye's evilness is kind of hot :lol: And then I read Night World, and I LOVED it. Not just because Blaise was like, totally hot for a fictional character that I'll never meet, but because the plot was, like, just outta this world - originality is the key. Now, Lisa, be a good author and listen: PLEASE don't kill Blaise in NW. :-? Sorry, I get attatched easily :cry: >_<
Oh, and sorry for the, you know, ghostwriter thing. I was nerked about it, but I'm trying to 'get over it'. Anyway, I'll stop writing now. :P

Hi Lisa, I have read a lot of your replies to all of our comments and concerns about TVD books and I just want to apologize on my behalf for being a bit inconsiderate of how you must be feeling through this whole situation. I am sure it must be 1,000 times more heartbreaking and frustrating for you to be going through and I am so very sorry for not acknowledging your feelings in my previous selfish rant. I wish that I could give you a great big hug and a pat on the back for a job well done! With that said, I am looking forward to all the other stories that you have in store for us and I can not wait to meet the new and exciting characters that you create in the future!

Some people jump the gun and send an address, but since I don't get to see the contest emails until after my attorney randomly picks the winners I don't know that they have. My advice is: don't ever send your address unless I write to you and inform you that you've won a prize. But also, if the contest is USA-only, please don't enter if you're not in the USA.

I am thrilled that I was able to go to a large bookstore. There I came across the Night World books, The Forbidden Game, and Dark Visions. Of course I bought them all!

I was wondering about Stefan's diaries Origins and Bloodlust. Are those books related to the Vampire Diaries Books or the Series?
I should very much like to read them as they are supposedly written by L.J Smith as well.

Can anyone give me any information on those books?

Hi, I'm sorry and I hope I haven't offended you, it's just that on the websites I visited they kind of used your name to go along with those books but now I know that they weren't written by you I kind of lost interest in them as they can't be worth it as they don't go along with the stories in your books. I'm looking forward to the sequel of shadow souls and meanwhile I will try to get the secret circle which hasn't proved very easy to come by as they don't sell them in English here in Belgium and I don't have Visa yet to purchase them on the internet.

Ive been a huge fan for for around 13 years and im now a 28 year old wife and mother of 2 children (in England!;) I have all of your books and adore the Night World series.

When you posted the short story online of them i was like a little girl on christmas morning, and although you are no longer able to right TVD i cant help but be pleased that you can focus 100% on Strange Fate. A book i have waited for and will continue to wait for, for as long as it takes. And as for TVD... although you will no longer be writing them, they are YOUR vision, YOU created them and no one can take that away from you. Please to all the fans, dont shun the new books, they are just a continuation of Lisa's story. Think of them as fan fiction. :)
Thanks Lisa x

I just wanted to say the first books I read from you was the Night World Series books. After I read the first I couldn't wait for the next one! I always bought the next book when it came out and now I'm waiting for the final Night World book to be released! While I've been waiting I picked up two of your other new books, The Forbidden Game and Dark Visions. I loved them! I haven't read Vampire Dairies because I love reading about all mythical characters, witches, shape-shifters, vampires, werewolves, fairies, etc. I love it when the all come together because you think it's a whole other world that is here instead of just one or two races. I can't wait to read more books from you and I can't wait for the last Night World book! I'm super excited to read all of these enchanting books!

Hello L.J.! I just wanted to say I admire your work very much. Congrats on all your success over the years! I'm an aspiring writer myself (I blog about my journey @ www.ktcrowley.com) and I hope to someday have my books on the shelves along side yours! If you have any advice for someone like me, I'd love to hear it.
Do you ever mentor young writers?

Best of luck and keep up the great work!

I have been a fan for well over a decade now and have devoured, repeatedly, every word that you have ever written. I was so sorry to hear about TVD, but I hope you know that your fans are loyal and will support anything else that you choose to write. Please don't allow this to give you writer's block again.
I must say that I really hope that you write Mirror of Heaven, it is one of my favorite series you have written, tied with The Secret Circle. I do miss that Morgana!
I simply adore you and as soon as my daughter is old enough I will introduce her to all of the wonderful worlds that you have created!

P.S.- Any chance of an adult series coming our way?

Wow, you said a lot in a little package, and all of it wonderful! i know my readers are terrific, and the thought of them being as loyal as you say makes the hairs at the back of my neck stand up. I guess I want that more than anythihg: the chance to have another chance with everybody, and to prove that I can still create characters as interesting as Damon, Elena, Bonnie, Ash, ML, Quinn, Hannah, Julian, and so on. I think that you will like Sarah, Kierlan and Mal of Strange Fate. I won't have writer's block again, I promise. I also promise to do my very best to get Strange Fate to you. (What a waste: the time I spent writing Phantom!) And I thank you very humbly--I seem to be surrounded by angels. As for an adult series--there's nothing I wouild love more. TVD would have become more adult as the characters entered college. I am going to try to believe hard in myself and write one. I just have to wipe the image of shocked ten-year-olds out of my mind!

Hi,
I'm a huge fan of the Vampire Diaries series. You have developed the characters incredibly and you have been my writing inspiration throughout high school - I know that's what I want to be. You have an amazing worldwide fanbase and I think you're so lucky to have that support.

P.S: Thanks for getting back to me on one of my comments - it's refreshing to see a writer that really values her fans.

I have NO idea how you do it! I juts finished Midnight and I can not describe how incredible it was. You managed to make just about EVERYONE happy in that book.. There were so many secrets! So much foreshadowing! The ending was.. WOW I had no idea it was possible to make both Delena AND Bamon fans happy at the same time! But the ending was suspenseful- but it was forgiven because of the greatness of it! I just wanted to congratulate you on a wonderful job and say Than You! :D

I think that's about as big a compliment as I've ever been given. Yes, it is. If I truly managed to ge by without offending one group or another (whilst giving Matt and Meredith their fair share of airtime, too) then I can die happy. Spin my shroud, dig me a hole.

No, really, I guess it's true that you should follow your heart in writing as well as in snything else, because that is what I did. I love all these characers so much--that I am finding it very hard to disengage with them. Even though I must.

I love it!. That was 14 years ago. Now that I'm not a teenager anymore and have children of my own I will never forget reading your books. I am so excited and happy to see you writing again. I look forward to more books!

Take care! :D

Hi!
I'm a Swedish fan. And well, what I have to say to you is that I think that the TVD series are so great! I am both sad and happy that its the last book now, but well, I mean, it's sad that their story will end. But I think that maybe there's hard to keep the same awsomeness if there's more books. I LOVE Damon, but I think that Stefan and Elena belongs, but who ever ends up with Elena is alright in my eyes.. Damon has change so much the latest books so if he and Elena would end up would be alright too!

BYE / michelle!! :D

Dear L.J.
We've corresponded through emails a couple of times,but I wanted to come on and publicly say how much I love your books. VD is my favorite, The Forbidden Game next. I am a total Delena fan, have been since the first books when it probably wasn't as acceptable. The way you have written your characters, Damon in particular, really sucks readers in. I don't 'dislike' Stefan by any means. But, The dynamic between Damon/Elena is much more compelling in my opinion. The relationship between them is more 'real' for lack of a better word. They butt heads, they argue, he doesn't bow to her every whim, and their chemistry is off the chain. So, I will read your other works but regrettably I will not read books by the ghost writer. You created these characters, you developed these characters, and you made me love these characters, anyone else isn't going to have the same insight into them. And the only 'true' ending should come from you since you started their journey.

Hello L J Smith. Just leaving a message to say I am astonished that you can't write anymore Vampire Diaries. I have read all your comments about this but I find it hard to believe they could do this. I could write about it for days lol but I have to go work soon! Truth is that vampire diaries wasn't my favourite series of yours to begin with, I love secret circle and Night World books. I'm excited to see more of those. I have loved reading all of your books since I was younger and am excited to own night of the solstice anf heart of valor, I have never been able to find before...and Dark Visions Please don't let all this stop you from writing. I would like to know any more info on your new secret circle book if you are writing one? Please just a few little spoilers? Or any new projects you are working on. Please keep writing!!

Hi, L.J. I just wanted to say that I have read some of your books, including The Vampire Diaries and Night World. I think they are written brilliantly and because of that, it is very easy to imagine everything that happens in the books. Living in the uk though, has meant that we are still waitin for Strange fate :sad: I am really looking forward to reading it, when I can get a hold of it. You are an amazing writer and I hope you carry on writing these great books for as long as possible.

I really love your books! I can't wait for Strange Fate to come out, (it feels like I've been waiting for ages!) and how can I forget Midnight?! I probably won't be reading the ghost-writer ones because it just won't feel the same.
I was wondering if you were going to write anymore books because I would love to read them! (I've read every one of your books I could get my hands on) :lol:
Thanks a lot, Jess

I started by reading, like most people, the vampire diaries, and then I fell in love with your books. You just never know what is going to happen and who will end up with who. Since reading your books I have been inspired to write my own books. I've always had a fasination with shape shifters and your the first writer that has used them and it helped me to invent my own book on shape shifters. My favourite series has got to be the night world books and I can't wait for strange fate. My favourite character is between damon, ash, rashel or keller. Please keep writing I've got all your books but the secret circle series which hopefully I will be buying soon

I am again an avid reader and love all of your work and cannot wait for the next arc of Vampire Diaries books to come out.
