I just wanted to say that I have read all your books over and over, they mean so much to me. I've had bouts of depression and loneliness, and there were so many times when I've been on the verge of suicide. And I just wanted to let you know that when I felt alone in the world, I felt a connection with your wonderful characters, and sometimes that was the only thing that kept me hanging on.
Thank you L.J. for giving me this untold gift.

Please, please if you still have any thoughts of suicide now, talk to a professional, or at the very least write directly to me.

I had to say that before even saying thank you so much for your wonderfully kind words about my books. I am more grateful than I can express for your kindness and it means more than I can say if I helped you through some dark times with my works. I wish you the greatest of happiness in your life==and if you ever need a helping hand, please remember that I'm around.

It's a shame you won't be writing the next triology for The Vampire Diaries. I just read Midnight yesterday, and OMG I actually cried when Damon dies and was soo mad that he had to die but the ending felt like Damon somehow survives. I was like YAY. I really hope Delena could somehow be together I've never liked Stelena much. Stefan's soo good that he almost comes off as a weakling to me. I don't know why you made him the main protagonist and all. But nonetheless thank you for this wonderful series and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

I just finished midnight aswell and agree with you that it totally sucked at the end. Actually the book started sucking at the part where they cross the bridge nd Elena's attitude towards Damon changed.
I realy hope there will be more books.
Damon rocks.

Hi Janine--

Don't worry; Damon is back already. He is alive, he can smell Bonnie and Elena's locks of hair, he even knows who he is. Had I known that Midnight was the last book of the Vampire Diaries I would write, I would have made it even more clear that he was alive. But never fear, the series isn't over, and Damon will return. Would I kill off my own favorite character? No! And neither will the ghostwriter.

Also, don't shout on my Giestbook or I will delete your messages.

Don't worry; Damon does survive. I wouldn't kill off my favorite character. Thank you so much for your kind words about Damon and Midnight! And, you have to remember, when I first wrote the Vampire Diaries twenty years ago (up to Dark Visions) I had no idea of making it a series. I agree with you that Stefan is weaker than his brother, but that's something that just sort of developed more and more as the series went on. But don't write him off yet. If the ghostwriter follows my book (which is a gamble in itself) Phantom will show a very different side of Stefan, a dark and feral side as he struggles to protect Elena and his friend. Of course, since it's all being rewritten, it probaboly won't happen, but I felt that potential inside Stefan. :)

I was just wondering about the pictures showing the eggs for the new contest. There are 10 eggs yet there are two pictures for the "Wedding Carriage" one, so does this mean that there are two of those, or only one with the dancing figures in? Sorry if I'm being completely oblivious!

The two pictures of the wedding carriate show it open and shut. When you shut it, it becomes the carriage the Admin put in the text of the contest, and when you open it, you can see the little bride and groom dancing inside. So it's one carriage, shown two different ways--and they're both gorgeous.

Hi L.J.,

I was wondering in what order I should read Terry Pratchett's books? Online it says that reading them by publication date isn't really the best way to go about it, and that technically you could read them in any order. Do you have any suggestions about what order to read them in?

Thank you :-)

Oh, what an adventure you are to start upon! There is no one, nowhere, like Terry Pratchett! I myself would start with Night Watch, his best book ever. After that, Monstrous Regiment. Then try some of his earlier books: Lords and Ladies, Feet of Clay, The Fifth Elephant, Soul Music. Or you could try the Sam Vimes books in order: Guards, Guards; Men at Arms, The Fifth Elephant, and Night Watch. (I love Sam Vimes.) And for heaven's sake don't miss Thief of Time or The Truth.

Um, this probably isn't as helpful as it could be. But I'm actually cuttng out a lot of book. Good hunting! Enjoy!

Okay, I sent you, L.J. Smith, an e-mail about some questions I had, but I never got any answers, so I'm going to ask again, cross my fingers, and hope that you'll answer:

When I was reading Spellbinder a few months ago, I wondered about the character names. I mean, for lamia, their names are about animals, trees, and gems. For shapeshifters, their names (except maybe for the First House) are based on their animal forms. But what about witches? Are their names connected to anything in particular?

In Witchlight, you said that children of the First House choose their animal form when they become adults. But what about normal 'shifters? How do they know which form was chosen for them? Are they only able to shift into their form when they become an adult, or earlier?

Here's hoping that you respond. And if anyone else might have the answers to these questions, please answer me too!

Sorry to have missed you. Please understand that I have far more emails than I can answer, even if I did nothing else all day. Thanks for your understanding. :)

Okay, here goes: Witch's first names are simply normal names, although it's perfectly proper to name yourself after a goddess. For witches, the meaning is in the last names. All Harman children are direct descendants of Hellewise Hearth-Woman, whose name became corrupted over time to "Harman," just as Dani Abforth's last name was taken from "All-bringing-f orth." But only females can pass the Harman name to their children--the boys pass their father's names down.

Normal shapeshifters are born into a line of shapeshifters-- if your parents are wolves, you are a werewolf. If your parents were bears, you are a bear (which makes naming a new baby easy. They are born with their shifting power--remember how Keller got stuck in her half-and-half form of a baby panther in Witchlight?

Okay? I think I covered it. There will alsoo be some surprises in Strange Fate.

Yes, they can shift from birth. Remember Keller in Witchlight, who was stuck in her half-panther form as a baby, and then abandoned. (If you want more info see the story "Thicker Than Water" in the stories section.

OMG!!! I am so excited for the sequel of TFG and i am even more excited for SF. I am a bit confused though, i understand that in your blog it says to not trust any source that said that it has been published and is out, however, curious as I am, i was wondering why they can say that it has been published. I pre-ordered the book from barnes and nobles and i had looked at borders too and it said that it came out on April 26, so like i said i pre-ordered it.
Anyway, i am really excited for both books and can say that i check your blog at least 3 times a day.... anxious for any news
I also wanted to thank you because like many others, (though not to such extremes) your books have been an escape for me. I also wanted to thank you because your books have inspired me to become a better writer. You use so many writing devices and it helps me with my reading homework sometimes. ALSO, i wanted to thank you because the heroines in the Night World series are rome-models for me

I'm terribly sorry, but I just don't know where they would get a date or how they would pick it. Maybe they have a faulty crystal ball. (But if so it's very, very faulty.)

Thank you for all your very kind words about my works so far. I am so glad that they have provided you with some escape, and especially happy if they have helped in some way to make you become a better writer. Gut I am thrilled and utterly ecstatic that you feel the girls have been role models for you. That pleases me to no end. The best of luck on your own writing!

I'm glad you know Damon is coming back. I'm so sorry the death scene made you cry (well, ut nade me cry, too) but he is already back and you don't have to worry about him. He will be in the next book. But, you know, I didn't pick a Stelena ending. I had no idea then that the books would be taken away from me, and I fully intended to bring Damon back to complete his adventures with Bonnie and Elena in future books.

and I was delighted with his plans for the next trilogy bonnie she deserves more consideration and a new guy would be perfect but of course I'm a fan bamon jealousy Damon could do with maybe more if the value of seeing as it becomes elena a bit stupid

I just wanted to say that Midnight was by far your best book. The end of the book was beautiful you are one of the best writers I've ever seen.
I'm a fan of Delena so I can tell that end of the book was sad for me because in my opinion I do not think Elena and Stefan are soulmates the 'love' between the two is not real almost like a obligation. While the love between Damon and Elena is really true for me, the passion and tenderness that one feels for another is touching I think that all the girls in the world want a love like this.

I have to say that I will not read the other books, they were not written by you. It is revolting to know that a series so beautiful and that has helped thousands of people would be finished by a person who knows nothing about the characteristics of the characters.
Would you change the ending that will be done? You prefer that Elena stays with Damon? If you were allowed on justice would you put your vison of the end of the series on the website?Sorry if the questions were too bold.

Wow, thank you so much for your kind words. You are such a loyal and devoted reader, and I feel very humble in light of all your praise. Thank you, again and again. And of course it is your choice which books you can read and not read. I actually can't help but hold a tiny hope that someday I will be able to write a Vampire Diaries book again. I love the characters so much that it is very hard to let go.

For that reason, I would not put up my endgame scenario on the Internet--that and the fact that I honestly don't know what should happen to all of the characters at the end. I have ideas, but the characters themselves are not telling me which reality they prefer.

You're from Brazil? I would never have known it. Your English is excellent. I wish so much that I was fluent in other languages.

Thank you,k Meliissa, for your lovely sentiments. I will keep them in my heart.

For the Midnight commercial contest, I live in the US on the West Coast, which has a 3 hour time difference than the East so people over there will be able to see the commercial sooner. So is there going to be different contests because of the time difference or is it just first come first serve? Also, I had another question in an earlier Guestbook that did not get answered so I will try to ask again...Althoug h I always enjoy entering your contests I've noticed that all your prizes are really expensive and would like to know how you could afford it all? I mean beautiful prizes like that do not come cheap and you give out a lot, you must be one very generous woman.

As to how and why I give away these prizes, the answer is simple. I'm a shopaholic! I love to shop, and I love to find things that match the ideas in my books. I have a special closet for prizes, and I love to give them away!

Thank you so much for the compliments on my works. I truly appreciate them. There will be a Secret Circle sequel for certain--but if it is not published, it will be on this website. It's going to take a little while to finish, however. I have to finish Strange Fate first. (Finish writing it, I mean--you don't have to wait until it comes out unless the sequel is published as a book.)

So I have read every Vampire Diaries book (twice now lol,) and since I am having withdrawls I am probably going to move on to another one of your series. Which would you say is most similar to the Vampire Diaries? Also, I have to ask because I am a big fan of the show as well: Is the way Ian Somerhalder portrays Damon the way you imagined him? Just curious :lol: Thanks

Well, to answer your last question first, Ian has nailed Damon as far as I am concerned. He is perfect--and he is also a very caring person. (Sort of like Damon in that way, too.)

I would recommend that you try The Forbidden Game if you want a character who is like Damon in many ways. It has an anti-hero who is cruel and conniving on the outside and is also madly in love with a human girl. If you want vampires, vampires, vampires, try the Night World series.

I bought Night World The Ultimate Fan Guide and it has as a sneak peak the two first chapters of Strange Fate. Are they real or not?
And there is a quiz named What Is Your Clan? I took it and the results were a tie between lamia, werewolf, witch and shapeshifter. Is it possible for someone to belong to all four clans?

You are my favorite writer and role model.
Greetings from Greece,

First, thank you so much for saying that I am your favorite writer and role model. That's high prise that I won't forget.

Second, I didn't have anything to do with the Night World Guide except for the comments by me at the end. But let me think. If your mother was a witch and your father a shapeshifter, you would be both (like Mal in Strange Fate.) Then if you were bitten by a werewolf and changed, you could actually be all four!

As for the chapters of Strange Fate in the Guide, they were real, but edited by my editor, so they won't be exactly the same in the book.

Don't worry! Damon isn't dead. He was close to death, but he he is already coming back to life, able to smell the locks of hair and the tears of Bonnie and Elena, able to clench his fist, and able to remember who he is.

Don't worry; he will come back in the next book, even if Phantom is in most ways completely different from the way I wrote it.

Please, don't stop writing! You could write your own "The Hunters". Your version. And maybe you could publish it later with a other title or something like that. Do anything but please don't stop writing on "the vampire Diaries"!

Excuse my bad english, I'm just a 14 years old girl from germany who is absolutly in love with your books. I just wanted to show you that "the vampire diaries" does mean a lot for many people. Not only in America, all over the world!

You write wonderful English--it's hard to believe that your are from Germany. I'm so impressed!

In the meanwhile, while you are waiting for Vampire Diaries, maybe you could try some of my other books. I believe they are available in Germany. I would be very happy if you did that.

L.J Smith, I am such a huge fan. I've read every one of your series and I've never found an author who has such an amazing talent for characterizatio n and actually making the story, no matter how supernatural, REAL. That said, I only recently learned that you were dropped as the author for Vampire Diaries. In addition to being pretty bummed out, as VD is my 2nd favorite of your works, I'm also a little scarred, as I'm an aspiring author. How is a ublisher able to do that?

A publisher can do that, if in 1990 (twenty years ago when I first signed the Vampire Diaries contract and wrote the books) the contract contained the words "This is work for hire" or some variation. Work for hire--which I didn't understand at the time I signed the contract, and which my then-agent did not explain) means that I do the work, writing the books, but that the book packager, now called Alloy Entertainment Inc., owns all the most important rights, including the rights to pick who will make the series into a TV show (I just lucked out when I got Kevin Williamson) and who will sell the foreign rights. And that, to make a long story short, is why I am no longer writing The Vampire Diaries.

Don't be afraid as an aspiring writer. Just make sure that you have a good agent. In any case, it was not the publishers who did this to me (or not at first). It was the book packager. A book packager sells books, already with the covers on, to a publisher. I got involved with them because they called me and asked me if I would like to write a trilogy about vampires that would definitely be in the bookstores (my first two books, despite good reviews, were hardbacks that almost no one bought, because they were not in bookstores.) So I agreed to write this vampire trilogy, and the rest is history.

It is by far my FAVORITE book of the series...partly because it was signed for my birthday for winning the Name the Trilogy contest...but mainly because it was the last book of the series personally written by L.J. and not the ghostwriter.

Hi L.J.

I was wondering if you have any music picked out to go along with your books, or scenes from your books?

Today I was listening to my iPod, which was on shuffle, and I realized when certain songs came on I thought, "Oh, that is a Night World song".

Certain songs really make me think of characters from your books.

I think it would be cool to hear what songs you think go well with some of your books.

Oh, I do--I hear so many songs that inspire me. One, weirdly enough, is Avril Lavigne's "Alice in Wonderland." It always makes me think of the Dark Dimensions (which are literally Underlands). And then I like some really weird New Age music--like when Poppy sets up her own death scene in Secret Vampire? That song is a real song, Music to Disappear In II. And then there is one of my favorite love songs for the Night World, "Every Story Is A Love Story" by Sherie Scott. There are just too many to list, and I think everybody's list would be different. But I almost always write with music playing.

Oh, every time I read Secret Vampire I think about looking up the music mentioned, just to see if it is real. Now I know! I'm going to look it up.

Every time I hear Evanescence I think of your stories, of course it's usually the darkest scary parts of your stories that I think of, but those tend to be my favorite parts. (Hmm, now I sound Morbid)

I also listen to music while writing. It's actually quite funny because in the middle of a story if a happy song comes on, all of a sudden, my story takes a crazy bi-polar trip and every character has become happy. And then I have to take out huge chunks in my story because who wants a bi-polar character who can't decide if she is happy or sad.

And, if you hadn't noticed, I tend to ramble on and on. Thanks for listening. hehe :-)

Oh, and lastly, I'm the girl who asked you to mentor me :D and I'm still excited about it! Well, Ecstatic is probably a better fitting word. :oops:

What is your favourite quote of Damon's?

L. J. Smith
+8 # Hi PennyL. J. Smith 2011-05-03 20:45
Too many to count, I think--he's such a smartmouth. But what immediately comes to mind is in Shadow Souls, when he says he is going to get breakfast and Matt says something on the lines of "You mean you're going to find some innocent young girl and you're going to swoop down on her and sink your teeth into her throaat."

And Damon is silent for a beat or two and then says, very much on his dignity, "Am not."

Or there is always the infamous Bonnie in the bathtub scene in Nightfall, when he insists that his desperate attempts to save Bonnie were all "whim." I don't think everybody quite got it, that Damon was just trying to save face here, and that the "whim" was nonsense. Certainly Stefan didn't get it.

But, you know, sometime I'll make up a list of Damon's funniest lines. A lot, though, stay in his own head, like his attempts to find a way to remember Matt's name and comes up with "Mutt."

Oh, yes, of course I loce Stefan exactly as much as Damon! I'm so sorry if I haven't made that clear. If you could read my version of Phantom (unchanged by the ghostwriter) you would see it clearly. It concentrates on Stefan and the new strength that comes to him. He is strong and intelligent and he protects all the other characters. I wish you could see that book.

The reason Damon has been more in the forefront lately is that the last trilogy was about him. I wanted to call it "Damon" (the whole trilogy) so people would know that. And you have to admit, in the books that came before, I had never really told anything from Damon's point of view.

For me, Audrey had more copper-colored hair, and a more tanned face--but "Audrey" is the word from the horse's mouth.

Thank you so very much for all the beautiful things you said in your message. I am most humbly grateful that you've enjoyed my worlds and characters.

And as a Stefan and Elena fan, you should be very happy with future books. I always wanted the triangle to be a real triangle, making it hard for Elena to choose, and, remember that the first four books are where Stefan's character is forged, but that he was due for a Power-Up in The Hunters.

i apologize i think i couldnt explain myself. what i wanted to say is that sometimes i felt like Lisa forgot about Stefan :( surely i am wrong, but i cant stop to feel that way.
we didnt see anything more about him, Stefan´s story is around Elena and his love for her, but i think he deserves more storyline. for example :

Damon, his story is amazing, is divided between his love story with elena, his journey for his humanity, his lovely connection with Bonnie, wanted or not he is part of the gang too fighting to save the town, he is always in the middle of something, you know, his charming personality always gets him into some mess, he always has something to tell!

Elena of course she is the main character and she has the most complicated storyline, she has to save the town and also she is love with two wonderful vampires, we saw her growing with each book.

Meredith if we read midnight we know she has her own storyline with her family, and also her complicated relationship with alaric and saving the town.
Bonnie her psychic powers are growing with each book and her powers plus her naive and inocence personality always gets her in troubles too, she is fighting for the town, and what about her love for Damon, i am so curious about them.

Matt he is part of the gang, but also he has his problems with caroline and the babies, and i am sure he cant forget his love for elena.

i love all the characters and i understand if Lisa wanted Elena and Damon together,actual ly i dont mind, i am sad because i feel that in some point of the story stefan was forgotten. and now i won´t see his real story.

You know, it's really weird, but I can't see my own message back to you, but I promise you that I adore Stefan and that he would have had so much more attention while the gang thihks that Damon is dead. I don't know what Phantom will be like now that I am not getting to comment on it when it is re-written, but my idea was to show Stefan in a very complicated role for once. He even pushed Alaric Saltzman when Alaric wanted to go hiking when it was dangerous, and Alaric almost fell on his bottom. He also had several fervent scenes with Elena. But I don't know what the book will be like now, although I do think everyone will buy it, either to see Damon come back or to see a book I wrote which was then rewritten.

Anyway, I adore Stefan. And Damon. That's the point of the series; it must be a real triangle.

You know, that's funny, because I always thought Stefan should have a more complicated storyline than his love for Elena. But your words made me think about it and I realized that he does have a storyline, even if it's not as complex as the others'. Like the others in the gang, he fights to protect the town and his friends. He has his love story with Elena and all the issues with Damon.

But you're right; his story - along with Meredith's - really needs to be expended, or whatever you want to call it.

I just finished the Vampire Diaries Midnight and can I say, "wow, what a rollercoaster of emotions!" The obvious-why my Damon? I was in tears for the whole last portion of the book...infuriat ed when Elenas wings were clipped...and empathy for Stefan and being totally caught off guard by the whole love triangle. I truly hope that your ghost writer is just as blessed and talented a writer as you have been! Damon HAS to come back! I live for that dreamlike state, to escape reality and be with him-he can't be gone!

Hi LJ!

I hope you are doing well, since I read in your blog you were having health issues. I mean that sincerely.

I have a question about a quote from Midnight I was hoping you might answer because there has been some debate about it.

QUOTE: "In the end Damon had died to save Bonnie. Elena herself needed no more proof of his feelings about her. She would always love Damon and she would never allow anything to diminish that love."

Some people think that the part about Elena needing no more proof of his feelings for "her" was about Bonnie, that Damon saving Bonnie's life indicated he loved Bonnie.

Some, like myself, felt that Elena was referring to herself.

Thanks and please answer

I think that Elena was referring to Bonnie, because I thought that was the whole point of the paragraph. Elena didnt need to justify her love for Damon or anything like that & of course Elena already knew that Damon loved her. I thought Elena ment that she herself knew that Damon loves Bonnie, but that it doesnt matter Elena still loves him. & in the sentence before that It says "Elena was glad, so glad that in the end damon had died to save bonnie" and in the end she needed no more proof of his feelings for her "her" as in Bonnie and thats why shes saying it wont dimish elenas love for damon even if he does love Bonnie too. Thats what I think, but I was wondering about that paragraph as soon as I read. Maybe L.J. will tell us, because Im sure us fans can debate about it all day, but only Lisa can tell us for sure. Either way I think just how Elena loves both Damon and Stefan, Damon loves both Bonnie and Elena.

Hi LJ Smith. Huge Damon & Elena fan here. I love the Vampire Diaries books so much especially because Damon & Elena love story totally blew me away. They have such an awesome build up in the books. I really wanted to see Damon and Elena defy all odds against them. So many people say Damon does not love Elena or Elena does not love Damon but when I read the books to me their deep love for each other is so obvious. Some people say its just lust. I would love to get your view of Damon and Elena's relationship because your words really touch my heart whenever you write about them. Its so heartfelt. I hope you know that many fans love Damon and Elena in the books and have made quite a few videos using Delena quotes from the books and many people have said the Damon and Elena quotes are so "chilly" it gives them shivers. Thanks for making Damon and Elena my all time favorite pairing. I wish you all the best in future endeavors. Stay awesome LJ :)

LJ Smith I want to first tell your such an amazing writer. The first time I read the Vampire Diaries books was in the early 2000. Damon is my favorite character he is so complex and layered. I 200% love Damon and Elena. They are the best pairing by far because of the fact its them against the world. They are the pairing that is wrong to some but yet they're the ones that truly belong with each other. Damon and Elena are truly epic.

I really love the way you wrote Damon and Elena scenes through out the books. Damon and Elena connection is so deep & powerful and even though Elena is with Stefan I felt like Damon is the one who she truly belonged with who truly got her. And Elena got Damon in a way that nobody else did. Elena really understood Damon. Thank you for writing the Vampire Diaries books and most of all thank you for making Damon & Elena the best couple ever. Love you LJ Smith :)

I love your books!I love the plot and they are written sooo well! I think that Stefan and Elena belong together and Bonnie should end up with Damon and not matt, Bonnie was the one who first broke through the stone wall, the metaphore that represented his soul.
I enjoy both the books and the tv series because they are not the same so you can read the book without spoiling the next episode and vise versa. It just makes things twice as exiting! xx

I just wanted to say that your passion for your characters have always been clear and while you say that there are no soul mates in the Vampire Diaries series. I've always felt otherwise in your writing for Damon and Elena. You have often hinted I believe at things forgotten from past lives between them an untold bond that exist outside of their memory especial in Shadow Souls.

They'll always be soul-mates to me and I am sad that now they might never get the oppotunity (I thought they had a chance when you were writing).

I was wondering what your favorite Damon and Elena scenes to write were? Were they your scenes in Midnight or Shadow Souls, or which other book?

Do you have a specific scene between Damon and Elena that you view as the 'turning point' for one another? Mostly I would just like to know which scene was your favorite in writing between Damon and Elena in Midnight (or SS, or any other book)

I will always love Damon & Elena. It makes me so sad to know Damon & Elena didn't end up together. I had such high hopes for them from the moment I read the first book with their meeting in the gym. What made me root for Damon and Elena so much is Elena saying this about Damon-- "How can eyes so black trap and hold odd lights in them." IMO it showed that Damon's eyes represented who Damon is to the core.

On the surface Damon is cold, dark, ruthless, but deep down inside Damon he loves passionately and is really a good person he just needed to believe it for himself. That was the moment that sold me as a Damon & Elena fan for life. And seeing Elena push Damon and truly believe in him throughout the series was the best thing ever.

Even though Elena is with Stefan I truly believed one day Elena would realize she's meant to be with Damon. Just like Damon always said because Damon is a fatalist once he believes in something he never gives up on it.

I think Delena fans really have a lot of faith they're almost like Damon in that sense :) Believing in something or someone so much even though all the odds are against you/them.

However even with all those odds against Damon and Elena Delena fans still believed strongly in Damon and Elena ending up together and I think that speaks volumes.

I will always love Damon and Elena they made me believe that anything is possible even if its a 1% chance of happening.

So thank you so much LJ Smith for showing that Damon & Elena did stand a chance however small it was. Believe it or not just Damon & Elena storyline alone showed that once two people are meant to be together it doesn't matter what anyone else says or thinks all that matters is the love they share and you LJ Smith and the way you wrote Damon & Elena love story thought me that.Damon and Elena will always be my favorite. Even though Delena has come to and end--
LONG LIVE DELENA! :)

I just wanted to congratulate you on yet another amazing book in the Vampire Diaries series. If you were to watch me when I read it you probably would have laughed. My face was constantly from a massive smile to a frown. At the end I went mad. When I got to it I sat straight up. I closed the book for about 5 minutes and tried to watch a film but then I carried on reading (I just couldn'' help it)and when it got to the bit where Damon's saying his goodbyes I started crying. But at the end when Damon's just coming back I finished reading it and smiled, but then I jumped up put the book down and ran downstairs so that I wouldn't disturb my mum and started jumping on the sofa. Whenever I finish a book I like I like to jump, and normally to sing, but it was actually midnight so... that wasn't really appropriate. Also I know that there are a lot of people asking for 'Strange Fate' now, but I just wanted to say, take your time, I'd rather have a good book to read than a rushed book :D

I have been on the wonderful journey of reading through all of L.J. Smith’s books. So far, I have read The Vampire Diaries, Dark Visions, Night World, Night of the Solstice, and Heart of Valor. I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one. I really want to call attention to Night of the Solstice, and Heart of Valor because I think they get less attention than some of the other series. They are truly amazing books. I think they are every bit as good as the Narnia chronicles. They also share a similar theme in the sense that four seemingly ordinary children enter a magical kingdom on a quest to save the world. If you like those types of books, you should definitely read these. If not, you should read them anyway because L.J. has never written anything less than brilliant. I really hope they would some day be made into movies that actually follow the books. The dialogue in them is awesome! Including direct quotes in a movie would be absolutely mandatory.

Dear L.J Smith,

I just wanted to say thank you for writing such a fantastic series that has brought joy to me and all of my fellow Vampire Diaries fans. I just wanted to ask if you knew when the next Vampire Diaries book will be out? I read that you have been "fired" from writing the next book, do you get any input on what happens? I just finished reading the last book in the Return trilogy and let me say it was fantastic! Are their any intentions of Damon coming back? My favorite character by far is Meredith (since she is most like myself) is there any possibility of a Meredith, Bonnie and Damon love triangle?


~Sarah Elizabeth

P.S Do you watch the Vampire Diaries TV show?
P.S Is there any way you could post Phantom on your websit

At the end of Stefan's Diaries Vol.3: The Craving there is a sneak peak of Phantom. It is Elena, she is dreaming that she is at Bloddeuwedd's palace and Damon is there. But she is no you can't be here you are dead. She wakes up and there is a crow on her window, she says Damon and the bird flys away. Iwas just wondering if that is some thing you wrote because The Vampire Diaries are the best books i ever read. Midnight is my fav book of all time.Thank you for writing the best books ever.

I love your books! Your books are truly works of art that belong in a museum! On a side note, i saw from a previous comment that you like point reyes. I cant agree with you more. Nothing beats laying down in the sand, or walking on the trails, and just letting everything go and enjoying the scene around you. Cant wait for your next book!

Sincerely,
Morgan

My Mom (sweet lady that she is) bought me a copy of Midnight for Easter...and I haven't been able to put it down! I'm really into the story, and look forward to completing this one and reading more. It is rather sad that L.J. herself will not be writing the final three, but I will give them a chance...who knows, I'll more than likely like them all the same! :lol: Anyway, looking forward to the T.V. Series's season finale, looks like it'll be good!

All my best wishes to you, L.J.!

Hi, L.J. I just wanted tell you how much of an inspiration you've been to me. I am a writer too, and I really hope to become a novelist someday ;) I am really sorry about you getting fired. It's really not fair :( I wanted to point out that the series would have been so much better if it ended the way you wanted it to...with Delena. It's our jobs as writers to write what we want, and because of a contract, you weren't really allowed to do that and I'm very sorry. I know in my heart that they belong together. It's devastating to hear you weren't able to end the series with them together. I will never get why Elena stayed with Stefan...it's beyond me. The dark handsome guy always ends up with the blonde hair beauty..so I don't know. I always read your books and I love them. They are way better than the Twilight series. I will not give up on Delena. They were always meant to be and I will always believe in them. Thank you for Delena!!! And thank you for all of your writing, you rock!
