hi all the people tht are fans, i rote a poem bout 4 of July!! like pleaz!:

light in the sky
in remembrance of that day
when a paper was signed
that gave us freedom's say.

we are our own
no one can change that
we have our own special glow
because of a decleation.

with all love and joy
cheris what we've got
for when we were played for a toy
we change what they sought.

thank you, let's say
to those who have passed
you have showed certain ways
that alow equality to last.

We Love You!!!!

I'm not American, so I'm not too sure, but is fourth of July Independence Day?
I'm really sorry, but I'm English . . .
But, as Dumbledore said, "It's not what someone is born, it is what they grow to be that matters". I'm all for celebrating freedom and equality.
And, to bring this down to and LJ related topic, LJ's books really inspired me to make a difference in the world. Her characters (especially Elena, Meredith, Bonnie, Roz Ross and Mary-Lynnette) all really care about equal rights, especially for females.
Lisa, I agree with the above,
WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!! :lol:

OK, its a bit weird writing another post straight after my last, but I think we should take a vote on these LJ Smith fan names? Or people could leave any other suggestions?
Some people have suggested "Wordsmiths", "Mythics", "Oldsouls" . . . etc :)
Anything else??????????? ????

OMG!!I finished reading Midnight and I must say that was the best book that you wrote so far! I know that the book went on sale for a while but I'm from Brazil and still is not for sale so I had to import from USA! I just loved the book ... if I had any doubts about the love of Elena for Damon, after reading this book I no longer have! The last part between Elena and Damon was wonderful and sad at the same time .. I cried all the time! You managed to express the love between Elena and Damon in the book so perfectly ...and as I am a fan of Delena I am very grateful for this!
L.J.Smith Thanks for your wonderful words that you write in your books.

I just want to say that I agree with everything you said. I think that Elena and Damon should be together. In my opinion Stefan shows in the end of the book that he don't deserve Elena the same way that damon does. But the book was wonderful the same way.

I like many fans have been waiting to read a prequel for Stefan and Damon.

It has me deeply upset to find that Stefan's Diaries (and possibly Damon's Diaries in the future) is made by a ghost writer.

And because of the recent news:

http://www.ljanesmith.net/www/blog/297-thank-you-but-dont-boycott

http://www.fanpop.com/spots/damon-and-bonnie/articles/94251/title/lj-smith-fired

We know this cannot happen unless L.J.Smith retains the rights for the series, and goes to another publisher.
I plead to L.J.Smith to do everything to get the rights for the series back! And if desperation comes to it, release vampire diary novels on PDF format on your website for us all to read it.

regards a devoted fan.

Without L.J.Smith, there is no Vampire Diaries! She made it and its hers regardless of what paper says otherwise. Its utterly shameful of Alloy Entertainment to replace her with another writer, without even saying why! L.J.Smith will stop writing Vampire Diaries when she wants to, not when someone else says so.
Don't give up.

for vampire diaries, her contract was "work for hire" which means she writes it but sadly alloy owns it.
her agent didn't tell her!
so can can do very little except to not work with alloy and harper again

i once read a story and i'd like to pass it on to you- you might not know what the relevance to Lisa's work is, but you will soon...

there was girl who was fidgiting in front of a mirror- moving her mouth up and down, waving her hands. her mother had come up and heard soft noises: skin against cloth. she had looked inside the bathroom and saw her daughter.
"What are you doing, honey?" she asked.
"Trying to find out why this person is in our house."
he mom looks at her and shakes her head, smiling and saying, "That's you, baby."
The little girl frown and shakes her head, "I thought you said i was beautiful?"

From then on i really only cared what i thought of myself, not how people see me. this story is relevent because Lisa's girl characters are usually so self confident... i like that because they hardly would care what others thought of them...

THREE CHEERS FOR LISA!!!!!!!!!!! ! ;-) :lol: :D ;-) :P :roll:

In Secret Vampire, Poppy thinks that James' girlfriends are prettier than she, but then James tells her that "You don't love a girl because of her clothes or her car. You love her because she sings a song only you can understand."
That's just the most beautiful thing I ever read :cry:
I think LJ Smith's books make everyone beautiful because they make you realize that true beauty is on the inside, and the heroine of Strange Fate, Sarah, has plain brown hair, I think. And in Black Dawn, Maggie says she is short with brown eyes and a round face, but Delos just doesn't see her that way.
You can't read these books without building up another layer of confidence. :roll:

Dear LJ,

My sister and I first read your books when we were in high school, in '97/'98. We still re-read the books and fight over who gets to keep them. Right now I have them, lol!
I was amazed when Vampire Diaries came out as a tv series... and now the Secret Circle is too!
I'm older now and the tv series really don't appeal to me (sorry)
BUT, your characters are still alive in my imagination and the way you write keeps me returning to your books over and over again! You are a wonderful writer.

***SPOILER ALERT*** Hi, I was confused about something in Shadow Souls. On pages 134-135 Elena read and ripped up her diary and then flushed it down the toilet. Why did she do that? Did she write something about her love for Damon and not want to see it because she still loved Stefan?

Elena ripped up her diary because she didn't want anyone to know what had happened between her and Damon at the motel. She wanted it to be her little secret, until she decided to tell Damon herself. She knew Damon would read her diary before she was willing o tell him. Later on in the series, she does tell him what happened there.

Hey LJ.! This is not the first time I come here, I've done it lots and lots of other times, and I've said how much I adore your books, they're my life, just that. I just wanted to know if you can tell me or not (spoiler) anything about Damon's death, is it permanently? I don't know if you can answer me or not, I know you won't be writing anymore, and I'm very sorry for that, I wish it'd be you to do it, but do you think you can tell me something about it? just know that I adore you and your books, and knowing that would be a life saver, thank you very much, with much love H.

I sent different letters to Alloy and HarperTeen. I wanted to word them a little differently since Alloy is the one that owns the rights to TVD. You can use the addresses listed under Links—Publisher s and Friends on this site.

As for spreading the word, we still need help with non-English speaking sites. Remember to promote Lisa’s other books and suggest sharing a book or going to the library to anyone “on the fence.” You are correct that the next phase is email and letters. Beyond that, I think all we can do is wait.

I left a message for Maisoon in the last GB as well. I’ll leave another now and see if we can coordinate. I have not heard anything from Alloy; if/when I do I will let you know. I’m not sure what you were referring to when you said you were going to ask Admin. for advice. I just want to offer a word of caution, in case you hadn’t thought about this. We need to be careful about involving Lisa or any of her “people” in what we are doing. Remember Alloy still owns rights to Secret Circle. I do not want anything We do to reflect poorly on Lisa or give Alloy an opening to hurt her again. If you were referring to something different, then sorry for the misunderstanding.
Take care and keep up the good work!

I just read what the fourth book of The Forbidden Game might be like (in a previous guestbook thingy) and I'm so happy right now!!!
I've been ranting to all my friends about it because it's all I'm really talking about lately. That, and the whole ghostwriter/Vam pire diaries thing. My boyfriend has had to put up with my rants about that nearly everyday.
I was just wondering, would you ever put up a little mini story about any of the characters from the Forbidden Game trilogy like you did 'After Hours' for Bonnie/Damon, for example?
anyway, I just want to thank you for creating such amazing characters in your books. I've fell in love with all of them! Mainly characters from the Night World series and The Foribidden Game, but I like the others too of course. Thank you! You're incredibly inspiring to me and many others and my absolute favourite author for the last 7 years (alongside JK Rowling).

You changed my viewpoint on life itself with all of your books. I used to think that life was black and white, but I picked up one of your books at the library one day and all of a sudden the world wasn't colored like some old movie. It was a colage of all different colors and it gave me something to reflect upon whenever I am lost.
Thank you Lisa.

I know exactly what you mean. when I feel lost or confused I pick up one of Lisa's books and It takes me to a different place and I forget about my problems and know that I have it lucky. her books have changed the way I see things. I can relate to some of the characters in a way and it feels good to know that I can relate to someone even if their only characters!

Lisa is writing another Night World book right now! It is called Strange Fate. She is working really hard to make it just right, so it could take awhile. Please, be patient and keep checking this site for updates because she will let us know when she is finished. Book selling sites have been posting faulty publication dates. Any possible publication dates you may have heard are wrong.

Have you read any of Lisa’s other books? Since you like Night World, I recommend Dark Visions because it has a different kind of vampire, a psychic vampire that “feeds” off of life energy. The booklist page on this site http://www.ljanesmith.net/www/author/booklist has a more complete description of all of Lisa’s books.

Hi Tatiana,
if you like LJ Smith's plots, then I would recommend the House of Night series? (Okay, it hasn't really got the same plot as any of LJ's books, but it is about vampyres!)
But another really good read is the Hunger Games, which is coming out as a film next year. It's about a strong-willed sixteen year old girl who's dad has died in a mine accident, so she has to provide for her family by hunting ilegally in the woods near her home. It is set in the future. This book features a love triangle!
And, btw, LJ's fave author is Terry Prachett, so you could read some of his books?

Hey! I want to say THANK YOU times a bajillion for writing all of your books. They are all ones that I read over and over (I'm working on my twentieth read of Secret Vampire). You've inspired me to write about the books- fanfictions that have gotten hundreds of reviews each. The books were truly enjoyable, and I've gotten all of my friends to fall in love with one character or another (James for me, but Damon is a close second). I started out with brand new Night World books, and got back well-used stacks of paper. I didn't mind having to replace them. A well-used book is the most beautiful, right? I was DEVASTATED when Julian died. And Damon. I cried then. And it takes quite a bit to make me cry. You've inspired me to become someone who works with books in the future-- I actually would like to become a book editor, for I am tired of mistakes in books. Thank you so much for influencing me, when I was unsure of what to do in the future!

Dear Lisa
I know, that we won't never have meet, but I would like to write you via this website as much you created into my life through books. Series The Vampire Diaries written by ya is wonderful. You managed to induce adrenaline, rapid heartbeat, tears, satisfaction and many other feelings. You don't even know what it was fantastic when I was read it. Today just finished reading Midnight - live in Poland and the books are accessible here - and I'm incredibly sad for one reason. That you won't continue this series. Really the only thing I desire now is to write this trilogy by You because You don't think that someone else can't write it in such an amazing way as You did. I don't know whether you support Delena, Stelena or whatever, but I'm Delena's fan, so when I finished reading Midnight I felt like the chance to Delena was ever a real gone. Also as you're gone and you won't write this fantastic story which you created. But anyway - thanks. For created Delena.
Pat.

I’m not sure if you know, but Lisa did not choose to stop writing The Vampire Diaries. Alloy (the book packaging company) took the series from her and gave it to an unknown author. They have a legal right to do this because of a “work for hire” clause in the original contract that Lisa signed back in the ‘90s when she didn’t understand what it meant. Many of Lisa’s fans are working together to let others know what happened and to boycott Phantom (the next Vampire Diaries book which is not written by Lisa.). If you would like to help us spread the word, we would really appreciate it. Let us know, if you have any questions.

Hi Yesenia,
I just wanted to let you know that Lisa is not going to be allowed to write anymore TVD after Midnight. Alloy (the book packaging company) took the series away from her and gave it to an unknown author. Lisa fought to prevent/reverse this decision. There is nothing more she can do, but her fans can fight for her. If you would like to help, check out the "ways to help" post I made a couple posts above yours. If you have any questions, just ask. Many people on here will be able to help you.

Also, have you read any of Lisa's other books? The Night World series has vampires and many other supernatural creatures. It is one of my favorite series. Plus, if you liked Damon, there are a few bad boys that I'm sure you will fall in love with!

Yes, indeed, I have started to spread the word of what's going on. I went to the Vampire Diaries forums in a channel's website since I figured out that most of the watchers are also readers, and I posted a few messages there in Arabic. I only did that two days ago, and there is yet no reply. (For any Arabs, I'm talking about the MBCAction website that shows TVD.)
I haven't yet tried in German, but I promise I will over the next few days.
To any YoungWritersSoc iety users out there, I have created a club called 'Save L.J. Boycott Alloy' this morning. My user name there is Alpha, btw.
So this is what I've done so far, not much but at least I'm trying!

Hi Maisoon,
There is absolutely no need for you to apologize. You are doing an awesome job and reaching people that we would never have access to because of the language barrier. I admire you for being able to read/write three languages!

Just a suggestion, Amazon De is in German and some English. I’ve started a discussion under Phantom in English. It would be great, if you would add something in German.

Thanks for everything,

Okay, I had this idea, it probably won't work legally, but maybe it will!
Can't L.J. publish Phantom the way she wanted it to be as a fan-fiction? I mean, fan-fics are totally legal, is it okay if she published it like that? I mean, she is no longer associated with Ally, so maybe it will work...

The thing with fanfiction is that it is not really “published” it is just posted online and the author admits they have no claims to the characters, etc. Naturally, if Lisa was to post her version, everyone would want to read that instead of Alloy’s fake. Actually, I’ve heard other fans refer to material written by the ghostwriter as fanfiction because they should have no claim to Lisa’s characters/worl d. I’m thinking there was probably some type of “conflict of interest” clause or something like that in the contract that would prevent Lisa from posting her version. Anyone that was calculating enough to come up with a “work for hire” clause would easily think up something like that that is often a part of contracts in various professions. Anyway, that’s my opinion on the topic, I could be totally wrong.

I know how you feel about Midnight and about L.J. being fired from writing any more Vampire Diaries. I feel the same way. I don’t mean any disrespect to you, but I think if we keep asking her to find a way to get her version to us that that is just going to hurt her feelings more. She has already done all she could to continue writing them. If there was a way for her to write them without Alloy she would be doing it. Although L.J. does not want/expect us to do anything, some of us have come up with ways to fight. If you would like to help, I have made a post further up on this guestbook suggesting ways to help.

The best way that you can support L.J. is by reading her other series. The Night World is an awesome series that includes vampires, shapeshifters, witches, etc. There is also the appeal of forbidden love and lovable bad boys that is similar to The Vampire Diaries. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, there are many people on here that can help you.

Of all of L.J Smith's books, I am the most enamored with the Vampire Diaries. Now that I know that the rest of the series is to be written by a ghostwriter, I, and probably most of L.J Smith's fans, (if I may speak for them), would like to know what direction L.J Smith HERSELF would have taken with the series. Although I personally have a crush on Damon, and would LOVE to see him with Elena OR Meredith, I'm also fine with a "Stelena". I believe that Bonnie and Damon would never fit because Bonnie would let Damon push her buttons, and it would be a relationship dictated by Damon. Either Meredith or Elena could fit with Damon, although my common sense tells me that Meredith would be the better choice, because without Elena, Stefan would DIE, and even though he isn't my favorite character, he doesn't deserve to die. I would like Meredith to end up with Damon because I relate to Meredith the most, physically, and mentally. I would put Bonnie w/ Matt-both are sweet and caring.

Do you kill him off somehow? Otherwise, I completely agree with you. Sage and Meredith would be wonderful together. And thanks so much for replying! I love your input.

Is Sage straight? I always thought that he REALLY liked Damon as more than just an old friend. Like the way he talks about Damon and the way he talks TO Damon.*Spoiler sorta* And I thought Damon said something about not wanting to ask Sage to change him back into a vampire because it would just complicate things or complicate there relationship more...idk that was just sort of my impression of it. Does anyone know if L.J. has said anything about Sage's past or his and Damons friendship?

Okay. I definitely think that Sage is straight. He might refer to Damon as his "little tyrant" in french, but he talks that way to EVERYONE. Bonnie and Elena are his "little kittens"..and so on. I took the relationship complications part as that, to vampires, exchanging blood is a romantic experience. Imagine having a romantic experience with your best friend, strange visual, huh? And, I don't think L.J has said anything about Sage's past, except that his father is part of the Infernal Court, but I always put his and Damon's relationship with the time Damon was part of this gang of killers in his past. (I think Stefan mentioned something about that in the first book.....I think) I always assumed they were both part of the gang. Oh, I so wish L.J Smith still had the rights to the series so she could clear up these topics in the next book/s!!!! Anyway, hope my opinion helps your confusion, Lacey!!

I thought I would repost it for anyone who wants to read it. Its tells a little about what L.J. did have planned for the next books. Im glad to be able to read some things L.J. herself was planning to do, and it makes me sad also because I LOVE the things she had planned. Its horrible to think that we may never get to read the books the way their ment to be, and it isnt L.J.s fault, I know that she did everything she possibly could and I respect & love her so much for that, for never giving up. I just feel sick all around for fans and even more for L.J. who had her beloved series stolen from her. I hope things turn out for the best in the end, I know us fans are going to do everything we can.
