I absolutely LOVED the Dark Visions trilogy and when I finished I said, "Hey! I hope she writes a sequel!" and now, I hear she's writing a sequel! Most of her books deserve a sequel to them. I can't wait for the conclusion of the Night World series! Like I said in my previous post, all we can do is hope that L.J. types faster!

Hi L.J. :D
I just wanted to let you know how much of an inspirational, amazing writer you are. You've inspired us all with your amazing work and all those great characters we can't get enough of!
It's amazing how you create such strong female characters that are amazing role models for teenage girls, I thank you very much for all the effort.

I also just heard about the fact that you won't be the one continuing the vampire diaries? That is just very absurd and wrong on every possible level. This is YOUR hard work and effort, how could they let another writer do whatever he/she wants to your characters? Mess up your plot in whatever way they like! :sad:

Stray strong and amazing L.J., all of your die-hard fans are here for you! Looking forward to midnight!

There will be, but it won't be written by L. J. Smith. It'll be the first of the ghost writer's books; entitled 'Phantom'. It'll be written using the frame Lisa had for it, but she won't be the one to write it, unfortunately.

Yes, Hez has put it very neatly. The only thing is that I wrote not just a framework but an entire book, believing that it was just another in the Vampire Diaries series. That was when Alloy Entertainment and HarperTeen dropped the bomb. So there may be a considerable amount of my writing in Phantom, especially during Elena's dreams about Damon, but most of the plot will be changed by introducing a cousin of Tyler Smallwood's in the beginning, who wants to do yardwork for the Gilberts (though that never made sense to me) and adding voodoo to the mix, in a way I found confusing.

Quoting Hez:
It'll be the first of the ghost writer's books


I am literaly SHAKING.I've been a fan for 20 yrs, since TVD was first published in 1991. Two days after I finished the first book, I wrote a letter to you & you were kind enough to write me back, a letter that I still have, tucked into my first edition volume one (Which is very dog-earred and worn!)
I was so happy when you continued the series- I had been waiting 18 years at that point for more TVD (also for TSC!). To read that fans will once again be deprived of what we waited for, makes me physically ill. Did they steal future SC novels from us as well?

Thank you for 20 wonderful years of reading enjoyment. I look forward to the next 20 years of reading YOUR work.

As Kimberlee said in her post- Ghostwriting is a pale comparison. Look at how the ghostwriters ruined VC andrews series. I love these books because of Lisas talent and style. I don't want to read someone elses apaptation of the characters she created. Who better to tell us the stories and adventures of these characters than the person who dreamed them into existance?

In this "twihard" financially driven market, I strongly suspect that under the ghostwriters pen our storng Elena will moprh into a whiny, clingy Bella-esque wimp, while Stepah mopes about morning for his soul a-la Edward Cullen.

So as to your suggestion that I "give them a try", I politely decline to do so. I will not give the publishers who stole these works from my favorite author one further dime of my money.

+10 # More Vampire Diaries--but not by meL. J. Smith 2011-03-14 16:27
Hi Fiona--

You see, I have tears in my eyes now, because I am being asked this question on all sides; through email, through the Guestbook; in person--and the answer is so hurtful. Fiona, because my original contract for the Vampire Diaries said that the books were done as "work for hire" (a phrase I didn't even understand at the time, 20 years ago) Alloy Entertainment kept the right to basically fire me and hire an anonymous ghostwriter to finish the series (which will probably mean at least six more books). I am utterly confused and unhappy, as Alloy gave me no reason at all for doing this. In any case, I have fought them for months, but HarperTeen has allied themselves with Alloy and I am now exhausted and unwell. I wish that everyone who learns that I won't be writing any more of the books would pass the news on in as many ways possible. It's just too hard for me to keep explaining it to newcomers. Sorry for the angst-filled answer, but I am terribly emotional about this.

Honestly, I did not like the VD books coming out in Stefan's POV. I feel like the completely changed the whole story line. I loved you growing up and have basically modeled every bad boy in every book I read after Damon. I understand you don't want to talk about it anymore. I am worried about more sequels of the books you wrote back in the 90's, are more aspects going to change? Because if Julian is ruined I will cry! I feel like Damon was turned into a cry baby and I can't help but feel sick to my stomach if it happens to Julian or the other bad boys, even Thierry. I love all the boys form your books and You truly got me into reading. Seriously if it wasn't for your awesome books I would not be reading today! I love you and hope you are doing well. From what I read you weren't doing so hot. Having your series taken from you prolly felt like a child being ripped from your arms. I feel absolutely sick about what happened ((hugs)) blessed be and be well.

I really with the Stefans diaries POV changing the story as well as the other countless problems to do with them! my solution is just 2 neva eva read any of them !!! but sadly for those who r new 2 TVD and they read those first it would put dem of the book and the series. L.J smith however could have made those books sooo good!!! im afraid that the TVD series is going 2 turn like that without her writing and that is ONE of the reasons i will STOP reading it after midnight!! :-?

Wouldn't it just be easiest to make an actual blog post, Ms. Smith? Then it's in one centralized area that everyone can see without having to slog through the guestbook. It's your news and how you share it is up to you, of course, but a clear, concise blog entry would have been appreciated by a lot of fans and prevented some of the misinformation going around.

You don't need their permition, L.j smith. This is your passion. These are your stories! They can't tell you to stop fighting for it! I actually started writing my own stories because of you and I hope one day that if I become and author that I'd be half as good as you are! Please, you just can't stop it!

Hey Lisa,
I never write on these forums but I had to when I found out (just now) that you were being axed for the Vampire Diaries.
I couldn't believe that, but I know you're doing the right thing by standing by your decisions. I won't buy anything to do with T.V.D if it doesn't have your name on it. (Because who wants to mess up their collection!)
Either way, I honestly believe you will create more amazing novels that will be aired and karma (along with your fans) will bring you lots of luck (and love!).
Also, if you could give me any pieces of information on how to write, how to get published, how long a novel should be etc. I would be eternally grateful.
(I've scoured your website and printed off one of your quotes because you've inspired me, I placed it into a frame and it's beside my bed)
=)

Best wishes, L x

I have written a few times in the guestbooks, and seen you respond to others but not me.
1) I hope you are feeling better!
2) I am again, sorry to hear that your stories were taken from you in what seems unprofessional and counterproducti ve for the company
3) My original question pertains to your 'ending'. I have heard from many avid fans that you emailed them saying you wanted to have Elena end up with Damon, and thats why you were fired. Is this true?! I am wondering if this would be the case, b/c you wrote so passionately about Stelena, and you left so much to the imaginiation for a future with Bamon. I think Bamon had so much potential, how could we not get to explore that?!You say your stories always have happen endings, and Im wondering what you envisioned for Stefan's happy ending without Elena..
This is not meant to sound mean, I respect any choice you make. I am just curious. I loved your portryal of Stelena

I just really feel sad because you seem to think Delena fans are the ones who have been hurt most by your loss of ownership to your stories, since it will be Stelena/Bamon, but really, we have lost just sas much! In fact, at least Delena fans can go on knowing the true author would have had their couple endgame. We now have to know that anything we get is fake, and that you did not see Stelena and Bamon like you made us see them... to me, that is more heartbreaking than the other... I just wish you could continue writing them, b/c I would rather see a Delena ending if thats what you truly believed, than a stelena ending you didnt believe in

I don't really think it ended that way... but maybe that's just me being hopeful. I always thought Elena kind of just didn't make a choice? She realised she loved Damon a lot, and nothing would ever change that. Please correct me if I'm wrong... I just thought that the 'Bamon' thing was mostly one sided. Obviously Damon cared for Bonnie too, but I dunno... she annoyed him more often than not, I always thought. If someone could clarify that for me please, I really just thought Elena didn't get the chance to chose one or the other - that Ms Smith cleverly avoided a WW3 between the VD fans. xD

The whole thing with you not writing anymore Vampire Diaires books is just heartbreaking. All your fans will be completely behind on saying that they most likey will stop reading the books that aren't yours. I feel awful for whoever will be the ghostwriter because a lot of people will hate on them. I really hope you can tell us what *you* planned to do with the series and of course answer the biggest question of all; who will Elena end up with?! Also in your blog you said you were sick and are you okay? Is it anything major? Do you know what it is yet? I really hope you will be okay and it's nothing major.

Anyways I started crying and I got really mad for a minute, but then I got over it. I think L.J. had really good closure at the end and I liked that Jenny kept his ring. But if there is a sequel I think Jenny definitely has to end up with Julian. He really deserves her... unlike Tom. Well all we can do is hope L.J. types faster!

Hi L.J.,
I'm absolutely devastated that you are not writing anymore Vampire Diaries books. They're a wonderful series,and they won't be the same if you're not writing them.I'm a Delena fan,but if you were going to end the books with Stefan and Elena together,that would have been fine because it was your idea.But now if the anonymous writer ends them with Damon and Elena,I wouldn't like it because it wasn't you writing them or your idea.Nobody could replace you with writing these books.YOU are the TRUE writer.NO ONE else could even come close to your perception and perfection of the books.

I was re-reading Spellbinder/Enc hantress the other day, and I was wondering about the names. I mean, for lamia, their names are about animals, trees, and gems. For shapeshifters, their names (except for the First House) are based on their animal forms. But what about witches? Are their names connected to anything in particualar?

Will Night World be made into a television series? I would love to see that. The real reason I'm leaving this comment is to inquire how you feel about The Buffy (the vampire slayer) and angel (vampire) dynamic. Your novel The Chosen came out a year before the television show did. Do you feel like they ripped off your idea of a vampire hunter falling in love with a vampire? I am a fan of Buffy as well so I was displeased with this discovery. I love originality and creativity which is why I enjoy the Night World so much.

Hi LJ Smith,

I just had to comment on your 7th Guestbook about Midnight. Since it was my birthday, I asked my parents to take me to the bookstore to buy Midnight. It was actually the first time I went to Borders and it might be the last. I didn't ask for anything, except to get my hands on your book. But apparently, Midnight won't be on shelves in Borders for another week or so. I wanted to cry my eyes out when the polite man from Borders (Who was helping me find Midnight after I looked around the store, hopeful to find it but to no avail)informed me that it wasn't in store. I was deeply upset, but he made me smile when he told me 'sorry' after asking me "I've heard of her [L.J. Smith] have you read all of her books?" And I answered with a bright enthuastic smile "Yes!"
I assure you, I will get my hands on Midnight. At all cost, I must read your book but I'm happy Midnight was released on my birthday, it made it very special to me.

Loving Fan,
-Cindy

Sorry I asked so many questions :oops: . I've read you've been busy writing. not to mention so many sad news! :sad: it's just stupid that they will not let you finish the vampire diaries, I think maybe it will not be as smart of them either, just think of all the fans that support you and YOUR writing. They will probably not read the last vampire diaries books if you have not written them. I am also sorry to hear that you are sick. I hope you feel well even though you are sick.
I also hope you can answer my questions when you have time.

Oh LJ! I bought Midnight around lunch time yesterday and read it until I was finsihed. I cried even though I already knew what was going to happen because of spoilers online. The part that made me cry is so beautifully written. Getting to the end was satisfying and yet so bittersweet...I so want to see where these characters that I have come to love so much will go, but there is no story without you. I've said it before and I'll say it again - Damon is the most complex, deep, and beautifully written character out of any books I've read (and I've read a lot). I could read 100 books about him and never get tired. No other writer will be able to capture his true essence. Thank you for so many wonderful books and for Damon. I'm praying you get good news on your health issues.

Anyone have suggestions on which of her books are the best? I want to read them all but since I'm relatively new I don't know which ones get the most hype and are considered the best. Suggestions?

While I am sadden by the VD news, and will not be reading or buying any more. I worry more about your health and emotional state. You have suffered a huge blow, and depression would be "normal" but you are a gifted writer.
When one door closes another opens. If you want to continue Elena and Damen, change their names and do so. You true fans will catch on, and understand..eve n welcome it. I wouldn't even mind seeing a slightly more sdult version. Not meaning crude. We love you, we will continue to, and you have many more stories inside you yet to get out. I among others will be looking forward to them. Takes some time for you, then get up in that saddle again, and continue to do what you love. This is only a set back if you choose to see it as one. Lets see it be a new oportunity instead. I will be keeping you in my prayers.

Dear Ms Smith,
I´m sorry for that, what happened to you,that you can´t write your own Vampire Diaries Books anymore. Although it´s your idea and your work. I think you just write another VD book, if you want to or write a blog on your website. I´m from Germany and i had read the 6th and 7th book in english, because i couldn´t wait until they are published in Germany.
I really love your books, exspecially TVD and I really hoped for a Delena ending. So i was shocked when I heard, that you want Elena and Damon to end up.But they didn´t in your books. Is that really true?
I hope you will answer.

I'm only here to help. Yes, he does after he saves bonnie from being staked. He does die. But at the end of the book it says that he came back to life because of the very thought of Elena and Bonnie.

I bought your book "the fury" with the dark haired Elena on the cover,and started reading it only to realise that I've already read this book when it came out with the blonde on the cover(the fury/dark reunion). They won't let me take the book back :( . Why do you guys do this?Isn't there a way you and your publishers can put*2ND RELEASE* on the cover?.I'm sure alot of people have done the exact same thing. In these times of hardship people can not afford to be buying the same book twice.

Dear L.J. Smith, I have been reading comments about the current state between you and your publisher; and I am very confused.
What I think they're saying is that you won't continue The Vampire Diaries past Midnight because your publish got angry about the twist at the end? So, now they are going to hire another writer to continue the series (which is an awful idea!)?
If this is right (which I hope it isn't) then how can the publisher even retain rights to YOUR storyline and YOUR ideas? And I'm sure there are many publishers out there that would take your stories and publish them! Like, what you did with Strange Fate. Please reply in order to clear this mess up.

To partially quote L.J. Smith in an above comment "... because my original contract for the Vampire Diaries said that the books were done as "work for hire" (a phrase I didn't even understand at the time, 20 years ago) Alloy Entertainment kept the right to basically fire me and hire an anonymous ghostwriter to finish the series (which will probably mean at least six more books). I am utterly confused and unhappy, as Alloy gave me no reason at all for doing this. In any case, I have fought them for months, but HarperTeen has allied themselves with Alloy and I am now exhausted and unwell." So this means Alloy Entertainment owns all rights to TVD and any other books written.

LJSmith sincerely, with all respect but I just discovered that Elena choose Stefan ... and I HATED that idea ... she had to have chosen Damon!
Because if she really loves Stefan .... then why she was in doubt between two brothers all this time ?.... she's destined to be with damon!
Both suffered so much during this journey, the two are perfect for each other! They really love each other!
Stefan does not deserve the love of elena!

Your books are sadly over looked. I always thought that Nightworld should have been made into a TV series, and the FG should have gotten a screenplay. Your books made middle, and high school less painful, because I could always enjoy one of your books.

I even used to live in the Bay Area myself, a lovely place.

I hope you are able to fully recover from whatever is wrong with you.

May God bless you!

Living in "Twilight-ville " I was very withdrawn from the world of vampire novels and movies. I hesitantly watched the first few episode of The Vampire Diaries television adaptation of your books and was instantly hooked. Once season 1 ended I decided to read your books because I wanted to know more. I am so glad I did. I was even more intrigued by your writing and went through all of your books during my Christmas break. I just finished Midnight and all I have to say is bravo! I went through a turmoil of emotions while reading it also. I laughed, I became enraged, and I cried my heart out. And then new sets of emotions flooded through my body when I read the last chapter. FANTASTIC WRITING! And now reading other people's posts about the ghost writer, I am enraged. I am very upset that your fans will not be able to finish reading the story that you had envisioned from the beginning. I can;t wait to read more of your work!
Take Care,

Dear Ms. Smith,
I absolutely love all of your books! The plots and characters are so interesting and believable!I've read most of them at least five times!I was really upset when I found out a ghost writer would be writing the rest of the Vampire Diaries books and I was wondering if it would be possible for you to post the rest of the vampire diaries books online. If you did this would be copy write? If not it would make me and I'm sure a lot of other Vampire Diaries fans extremely happy. So is this possible? I will try the ghost writers books if it is not, but I'm sure their writing won't be any where near as wonderful, exciting, believable, and just plain brilliant as yours!

I understand that the writer they are going to hire will want payment and such, too, and that all relies on how well the book THEY write sells, because I've done the research on this business. But there is something horribly wrong with tearing a book, which is essentially a chunk of L.J.'s LIFE, out of one author's hands because they didn't like something, and giving entire ownership to the other author.
Therefore, I will not be reading anything that anyone but L.J. produces in this series. Period. D<

Now I've read them all and TVD too.Now other people know about it and ask why it isn't in our school library.

First of all,
Midnight was just amazing! I laughed, i cried, well i got all sort of emotions. It was the best of them all even though i cried for an hour.
I feel like i have been stolen of a closure. It's hard for me to let it go since Delena has became my addiction for the last 2 years. I can't imagine how you feel, but I'm sorry. Sincerely, i don't know you personally, but nobody should be able to steal those books from you. You deserve to write the rest of the books. I'm just sad that we can't do anything for you... I really want you to write the other trilogy even if i don't like the ending you choose because no matter what, it would have been your ending. You are the most important character of the story. Now that you are not part of it, Damon isn't Damon anymore. Nobody is going to be the same anymore. It ends with midnight and I'm glad that at least you gave me 7 books that i loved!

I couldn't agree more! Jez and Morgead may be my favorite couple, I mean, I love the all but they were particularly good!

So I looked Strange Fate up on the Internet and it came up on Barns and Noble so I looked at t and you can pre-order it. It says that the book will be available April 26th 2011!!! I can't wait for it! I think it sounds really good and if it's anything like the other Night World series then it's going to be fantastic! I hope the date doesn't get pushed back again...anyways , let me know if I've got the date wrong or anyone has updates!!

As long as its relatively soon I can wait the few extra days. I just don't want it to be pushed back another 10 years again!!!

Also, books come out at different times in different countries, so that could be the reason for the slight date difference.

Dear L.J.
Just a passing thought, but do you choose your covers? Like, do you pick the people that go on them? Do you come up with the original design for them?
Just Wondering

I absolutly love the gallery with pictures of your characters L.J. I know that these are mostly your heros or heroine but i was wondering if you could have some done of the vampire diaries kitsune, shinichi, maiso and mabye even inari?? this would be the most amazing ever.
All the best with your future master pieces.
Stina
P.S.
maybe you could find a new way to publish the vampire diaries ending the way you intended

L.J. :
Wow... Your book, Midnight, made me laugh, cry, and actually gave me the chills. Simply wonderful. That ending, though. It was hard not throwing the book against a wall - in the good 'why does it have to end this way?' way. It is painful to hear you will not be writing the continuation of TVD, but I must read what follows in this great story. You have the support of so many of your fans. We stand by you, L. J.!!!

I finally got Midnight as a gift to myself for taking the ACT(which just happend to be on the same day the book came out.) so what can i say? it was beautiful( the book not the ACT), though it broke my heart at the end when i realized Damon wasn't flying with the angels. actually that part i was ok with it's the fact that i wont really know what was meant to happen in the new series. seeing as you will not be writing them , therefore i will not be reading them. now that part broke my heart , but i am still praying for you , and forcing people around me to pray too!
Someday you Will write the series as it was meant to be written.
until then i'll just stick with the sequels you are going to be writing and strange fate. XD

Dear LJ Smith,
I'm Natalie's niece, the person who runs Blood Falls (this VD fansite) and I just wanted to firstly say thanks so much for helping her out with the charity work. That was really, really nice of you and the money went for a good cause. (:
I also really wanted to thank you so much for, um, how Midnight ended. I don't know if I should post spoilers here or not, but pertaining to the very last word you wrote in Midnight - I think I just about nearly exploded with happiness. For those last few chapters I was basically trying my best not to bawl in the middle of class! My favorite character, /ever/, I just couldn't believe what I was reading... but those were definitely some of the most beautiful and tragic scenes I've ever read. So thank you so much for not killing off my most favorite character, and also for those truly inspirational scenes. Good luck with your future projects! I really look forward to expanding beyond The Vampire Diaries. (:
