First of all, I think the idea to write to a magazine is wonderful!! As for HarperTeen, I think their role was basically that they took Alloy’s side in the debate and did nothing to stand up for Lisa. This is my opinion based on interviews and such that I’ve read online, so I could be wrong. What I did with my letter was let HarperTeen know that I felt they were once a respected publishing company, but they had lost respect and alienated fans by siding with Alloy. I asked them to refuse to publish any TVD books that were not written completely by L.J. Smith. I also pointed out that much of the fanbase is going to stand by Lisa and that it would be in their best interest financially to align themselves with her rather than Alloy. I hope this helps. Let us know, if you have more questions and keep us updated about any progress. Thanks for your help.

OMG guys!! It's true that in the next book called Phantom Damon is not in the book? I do not know if this is true but if it is the book will be an even bigger disaster! I and many people will not buy the next books, but speaking the truth I know many fans of the series are angry because the "new writer" will destroy the saga! It is depressing to know this fact and no matter how many fans try to make L.J.Smith go back to write the books I think it's a very difficult task because the publishing company is only interested in profit and not in the history of the books. So I think we must strive more so that one day L.J.Smith go back to write the books we all love!

I read a sneak peek inthe last stefans diaries and elena has a dream thing and damons in it. its in bloddeuwelds palace, but with a normal sun an damon appears, it starts raining ash, they kiss and then she remembers that he's dead. Then he says that all she needs to do is call him, and then he disapears. then elena wakes up in her room and there is a crow but it flies away. Phantom might not be to bad if they dont change L.J's work

I read the sneak peek too. (BTW if anyone is interested, you can view it through Amazon by using the “Take a Look Inside” feature on the third Stefan’s Diaries.) It is a combination of Lisa’s writing and the ghostwriter’s. To me, the differences in style/quality were obvious and I found it irritating. Others may feel differently. I do agree that Phantom may not be too bad depending on how much of Lisa’s writing is in it. However, I cannot even pretend that I will ever read it because of Alloy’s treatment of Lisa. I understand that other people may not see it that way and will want to read it out of curiosity. An alternative would be to get the book from the library or share a single copy with friends. Either option will reduce sales and let Alloy know that we are not falling for their tricks.

Hello again Jemison, I agree I don't think Sage is gay although I'm sure he would be a lovely partner for someone, maybe L.J can clarify? I think the secret with Sage is more to do with his status in the Vampire world, I think maybe his father is one of the first Vampires or something. As for Stephan, I agree with your previous comment he doesn't deserve to die, but his relationship will never be the same with Elena, he needs to grow enough that he could be without Elena, he needs a mission in life a real purpose (though not Damon and Elena's mission to help in the dark dimension, something of his own) Maybe even the Vampire princess who turned Damon? she was very gentle and needed to be looked after, possibly they could make each other happy? your thoughts? looking forward to your response. Oh make sure you read http://www.fanpop.com/spots/damon-and-bonnie/articles/94251/title/lj-smith-fired its really interesting and gives a better idea of L.J's direction.

I don't think that sexuality in the vampire world is black & white.( And in the real world I don't think it is, too)I mean, they've been around for a long time. I don't think it's impossible for them to be at least, bissexual. It was normal for men to be together in wars and etc. So yes, I think Sage likes Damon. And I think Klaus likes boys too. And deep down Matt has feellings for Stefan, for sure. It'd be nice to hear from L. J. Smith what she thinks about our theories.

I definitely agree that their sexuality wasn't black and white. It really NEVER is with anyone, really. I believe people like who they like, and the gender of that person doesn't really matter. I agree that it'd be nice to hear from L.J. Smith-I never imagined the story going in that direction, but it would be a VERY interesting twist!!! Nice to hear your opinion, Lucas!

Thats exactally what I ment about Sage, I mean he seemed to show a little interest in the girls (Elena, Bonnie, & Meredith) he apprieciated there beauty and everything, but I think he prefered and liked Damon a lot more. And even when Stefan was around to, Sage didnt talk to him in the special way that he did Damon. I agree, I dont think things are simply black and white, especially for vampires like Sage who have been around for so long, maybe they dont feel the need to classify things like sexuality in that way (black or white, gay or straight) they just simply like who they like. It would be an interesting twist!

I hope what I said wasn't taken the wrong way, I wasn't suggesting in any way shape or form that it would be wrong for Sage and Damon or any male characters to have a romantic or even physical relationship, just that I thought Sage and Meredith were similar and strong. No one person is just black or white so how could this world be, I think we all live in shades of grey. I see Damon with a women because I am one and I think I automatically place the characters I relate to the most with the male counterpart that I myself find attractive, which I imagine is very normal? Still interested in your ideas and opinions, its nice to have a unique perspective from other Smith fans.

Lucas, I respect your opinion but I sincerely doubt that all those characters are bi. The ONLY thing that could hint at the fact that Klaus is gay is that he turned Cristian and kept him with him. Sage MAY like Damon because of the way he talks to him and that.. thing he says to him, uh. mon petit something.. and yes, in the ancient times men liked men, and for vampires it's all about the blood, but men still very much loved women all those years ago, so not everyone has to be bi. Matt has NO feelings for Stefan at all... there's no evidence to prove that. Matt used to date Elena, and LJ made it clear that he still has feelings for her. MAYBE Sage, and a small maybe Klaus, but not Matt.. but that's my opinion..
PS: Nice to see another male fan!!!!!!!!

I know exactly what you mean!!! I think the answer to the Stefan dilemna is giving him a purpose. It reminds me of Rob in L.J. Smith's Dark Visions. Kaitlyn couldn't be with Gabriel until she felt that Rob could be on his own. So, L.J.Smith had him go back and help the Fellowship. I always imagined that she would have gone in the same direction with the Vampire Diaries. Hmm..Jessalyn with Stefan? It just might work! Good idea!

Hi Crystal,
The Night World series is going to continue. Lisa is working on the next book, Strange Fate, right now! When she finishes it she will let us know on this site. Just a warning some book selling sites have been posting wrong dates about when Strange Fate will be published. It can be confusing, so only believe publishing info. posted on this site.

A few are about Night World characters. "Those Who Favor Fire" is the continuation of Ash and Mary-Lynette's story. Be warned though it ends in a cliff hanger. I love the Night World series. My favorite is Witchlight, but I definitely want to hear more about the characters from Daughters of Darkness, too.

Hi Terri,
the Vampire Diaries series will continue, but Lisa is not allowed to write it. :sad: If you want more info. about that let me know.

I'm glad to hear you will read some of Lisa's other books. They are all fabulous, but if you want something similar to TVD, I recommend the Night World series. It is about vampires and other supernatural creatures. Plus there are some Damon-like bad boys to love. You might want to check out the Sneak Peek section on this site. You can read more about some of the Night World stories and The Forbidden Game there.

I heard that Lisa 20 years ago signed contract and according with contract Publisher took her right.I heard that the next reason was her desire to Elena and Damon were together. is that true?? what are you think? if a lot of people will sign the petitions or if the most people won't buy a new series is it possible that Publisher will change his decision?

First, I just want to say that what I know on the subject is just from reading things Lisa has posted on this site or said in interviews. BTW Lisa wrote about it in guestbook 2, if you want to check that out. Anyway the way I understand it is that a “work for hire” clause in the original contract (that Lisa didn’t fully understand at the time) meant that Alloy owns the rights to TVD and they can choose whoever they want to write it. Alloy never gave Lisa a reason for taking TVD from her. Lisa has said that she had to fight with editors to keep Damon/Elena scenes and Bonnie scenes in the book. Alloy made a public statement saying they wanted the books to go in the direction of the TV series. This seems weird to me because there would have to be too many changes to do that. Either of these might be the reason, but no one knows for sure. I’m not sure if anything we do will make a bit of difference. What I do know is that doing nothing has never achieved anything.

You have right! I agree with you. Everyone should fight then we can know that we did everything we could to change this situation. You wrote about Lisa was fighting about Damon/Elena scenes and Bonnie scenes - did you mean about earlier books wrote by Lisa or did you mean about new series?In my opinion, when they want to the books to go in the direction of the TV series they think if can be as good as Twilight saga, but it won't happend - these are two diffrend stories [I mean not everyone who read Vampire Diaries likes Twilight], especially if they want to make changes. People love Vampire Diaries wrote by Lisa, not by somebody else. I heard that publisher want to Elena be with Stefan together and Lisa was another opinion. Is it true?

When I said Lisa had to fight to keep scenes I meant in earlier books. When she wrote Phantom (the 1st book in the new series) instead of getting back edits all she got was a letter addressed to the ghostwriter telling the ghostwriter to rewrite everything. Lisa pleaded with Alloy and promised to make the changes they wanted, but they didn’t care. The Publishers wanted a strictly Stelena ending. Lisa was still undecided about who would end up together and wanted to write scenes exploring each of the relationships.

I happen to like Twilight and TVD. However, I feel that TVD is a far more complex story and the characters are more developed. I’m not sure what you meant about TVD not being able to be as good as Twilight, but I don’t think you meant it as an insult. Maybe you were referring to the craze Twilight has created. I think TVD is better, but I think that a better job was done making the Twilight saga into movies than was done making TVD into a TV series.

I know that some of that is just due to the challenges of adapting a book into a couple hour movie as compared to an on-going series. However, I also feel part of it was a deliberate decision. I cannot image why such a choice would be made. It seems like they just read the back of books and then created the show leaving out many of the wonderful plot points. I like the TV series. It’s just different from the books. That would have been fine, if it didn’t lead to ruining the books by taking them from Lisa. In my opionin, if anyone is trying to make the book and show more similar, they should have changed the show not the books. No one would dare to treat Stephenie Meyer the way Lisa has been treated. Twilight fans would not stand for that. By fighting, we are showing that we are just as devoted and will not be played for fools. Alloy needs to learn that they are nothing without their authors and the fans. They need to start treating both with a lot more respect.

I agree with you Christina. I love the books and I love the show, but they are really nothing alike, it seems to me that pretty much the only similarities between the two are the characters names. I don't see how they think the ghost writer can make the books more like the show and make a profit, it doesnt make any sense, they are nothing alike and I think people can enjoy them seperately better. They've already done enough damage by not letting L.J. finish HER series, they're more out of their minds then I thought if they think its a good idea to make the books like the show. I just hope that some day this all changes, that one day we will get to read the rest of the real Vampire Diaries, the way there ment to be BY L.J. Smith.

Hi Christina
I didn't mean that Twilight is better from the Vampire Diaries. I think that the VD are a lot better from Twilight. The characters(in the VD books) are more complex. Each character develops. This requires more attention. These things are making that Vampire Diaries are fantastic. I have never change them for another books. I mean that publishers want strictly Stelena ending because they are thinking that this love story is similar to love story of Bella and Edward.This is the opinion of the publishers. Maybe I am wrong but I am feeling it in this way now. I am thinking that Lisa's idea would be more interesting. For example: Delena ending would be more original.They should follow to the conception of Lisa. Fans love Lisa and her ideas.Alloy will understand it but then would be too late.

I agree with you about the Twilight/TVD comparisons and what the publishers are trying to do. You are completely right that a Delena ending would be more original. I'm a Bamon fan myself, but I really don't care as long as it's Lisa making the decision.

As for the petition, thanks for letting me know, but I didn't create it so I can't fix it. Do you have Twitter? It will only work if you do. I don't have Twitter, but I figured as long as I signed one, it would be okay. I don't think Alloy will count double signatures anyway.

What do you think? If the sale of the Phantom won't bring expected profits publishers will change decision?

Bamon ending also would be good. I hope that Damon will find his happiness. but I am interested in only version of Lisa. I won't read the books which were writing by the other person. It would mean that I read the fan fiction..worse. .something which isn't true.

Glad to hear the petition is working and gaining signatures!! I agree with you about everything. I don’t really know whether low sales will make Alloy change their mind or not, but it is the best chance we have. Our refusal to buy the books will send two important messages. First, it will tell Alloy that we are not going to stand for their disrespect and manipulation. Second, it will show Lisa that we are loyal to her first, before our love of the books and regardless of which couples we ship. Every single fan will make a decision whether they support Alloy or Lisa. I just don’t see how anybody can claim to be a fan and still support Alloy by buying the books that were taken from Lisa. I am very happy that you are choosing to support Lisa. It sounds like a lot of people feel the same way. I hope the sales of Phantom are low enough to make an impression.

The books in order are:
Secret Vampire
Daughters of Darkness
Spellbinder (US title)/Enchantr ess(internation al title)
Dark Angel
The Chosen
Soulmate
Huntress
Black Dawn
Witchlight

When you finish reading, let me know what you think. I would love to discuss them.

It is true that Lisa does not want us to boycott. She said that in her blog. Even though I respect her a lot, I just can’t agree with her on this. Boycotting is the only way we have even a slight hope of getting through to Alloy. It is the very basics of economics; supply vs. demand. Our money is our most powerful weapon in this fight. Alloy does not care one bit about whether we like the books or support Lisa in our hearts. What they care about is making money, so money is all they will listen to. All our other efforts will be for nothing, if we don’t enforce them by boycotting. I could never buy Phantom and retain my self respect as a fan and a person.

It is exciting to watch the number of signatures on the petition grow. I also like reading the comments and seeing that they are from many different places.

Have fun on your holiday. Going to the mountains with a good book to read sounds wonderful!

I'm not sure if this is right, but I think when L.J says she is going to continue the Mary-Lynette and Ash story she means that it'll be continued in Strange Fate. Like the main character--Sara h Strange--of Strange Fate has dreams about all the other Night World Characters, and I think that's where Mary-Lynette and Ash's story will be finished. But I'm not sure, so correct me if I'm wrong. But hope that helps!

In the part where I said I was wondering if it was going to be in a book I was thinking if it were to be in a book it would be in Strange Fate to. But like you I dunno.

I’m so sorry that you are stressed out. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Stress seems to be one of those things that never goes away, no mater how much it is given or received. Fortunately, the same can be said for love. I guess that’s how things stay balanced. I love you as a friend and am here, if you need to talk.

I don’t have any updates, but I’m on GB all the time. Take care of yourself and do whatever you need to do to get well.

L.J. Smith, I would just like to point out that you are one of my favorite authors ever! I first read your Vampire Diaries and I was hooked on your writing. Your books take up about 45% of my book shelf. NightWorld(all of them) and Dark Visions are by far my favorite books written by you. You are one of my rolemodels and when ever I feel like my writing will never be good enough for anything I sit down and read one of your books. Your words just make me feel so much better and I find myself able to write again. Thank you so much for being an insperation to me. You're one of the reasons I keep writing, because one day I know my dream to become a best selling author will come true.

Well, from what I know-which isn't much-L.J Smith was on a temporary hiatus back then, and just started writing again a couple years ago. Strange Fate is her current project that she is working on, and will probably be out in a year or so, depending on how fast she finishes it. Don't believe any other sights--even dependable ones, like Barnes and Nobles--because they usually are wrong. Hope that Helps.

Hi Sonia,
I have also been reading things online. Lisa has been dealing with a lot in the time since she first started writing Strange Fate. Both her mother and her brother-in-law battled cancer and she was there to help them. Sadly, her mom passed away. These events caused Lisa to go into writer’s block for a number of years. That explains the delay in Strange Fate. She also spent a lot of time writing TVD which were eventually taken from her. Now, she is trying to put that behind her and focusing on Strange Fate. She is working very hard to make it just right for us. This is a momentous tasks because she must balance all the individual stories and the larger plot. Please, be patient and keep checking this site for updates. Book selling sites seem to be posting false publication dates.

Based on info. from the sneak peek of Phantom, it appears that Damon may be in the new books. However, the quality and extent of his involvement is unknown. It will never be on par with his character development had L.J. been allowed to continue her series.

I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but you may be better off posing this question on another Vampire Diaries fansite. (I’m sure you could google and find lots.) On this site, many of us are choosing to boycott the new series, so we will not be the most helpful people to answer questions about it. (That’s my opinion anyway. Maybe someone will surprise me and respond) If you decide that you would like to read the new series, may I suggest you get it from the library or share with friends to help reduce the number of copies actually sold?

If you are deciding which of L.J.’s books to read next, we can certainly help with recommendations . Also, if you have any other questions, let us know.

I looove every single one of L. J. Smith's books!! I've been a loyal fan since the beginning, gladly defending the Vampire Diaries against anyone who believed it was a playoff of the Twilight Saga. I read the Twilight books, and I personally think there is no competition between the two; The Vampire Diaries are definitely better..in almost every way. And all of her other books are just so wonderful as well! When i started reading the Forbidden Game, I couldn't put it down..and it was the same with the Secret Circle, the Night World, and Dark visions. I love your writing style and plot lines, they're ah-mazing. And i'm outraged at the fact that they are replacing you with a ghostwriter! You put your heart and soul into the VD series, and it's an outrage to me (and all of your other true fans) to hear what happened!!! Rest assured, we won't just stand by and let you be treated this way. After all your books have done for me, it's the least I can do to stand up for you, and what's right.

I think it is great that you are thinking of ways to fight the ghostwriter decision. I looked up the site you were talking about. It is Change.org That site is more for big issues like human rights, animal rights, the environment, etc. The petitions are mostly to get laws changed. As far as I can tell, this would not be the proper forum for petitioning about an unethical clause in a business contract. We do not know the exact wording of the contract so we wouldn’t even know where to start.

I think the two petitions we have will be sufficient. Anyone without Twitter can sign the other one. Did you know each petition has over 3000 signatures? I think our most powerful weapon is going to be the boycott, though. Basically, every fan will be either supporting Lisa or supporting Alloy by whether or not they buy Phantom. If sales are low enough, Alloy will be forced to Change.

I’m not sure whether you are asking what the books themselves are about or about the bigger issue surrounding them. I can help explain the bigger issue.

L.J. Smith will not be allowed to write anymore Vampire Diaries. It was taken from her and given to a ghostwriter. She has fought long and hard to prevent/reverse this decision, but Alloy (the book packaging company) will not budge. This was allowed to happen because of a “work for hire” clause in the original contract she signed in the ‘90s when she really didn’t understand what it meant. Phantom was written by L.J. Smith, but the publishers told the ghostwriter to rewrite it. (All future TVD will be written fully by the ghostwriter) However, they will still say “Created by L.J. Smith”. I cannot help with summarizing the books because I plan to boycott them. If you have any other questions, let me know. Sorry if I misunderstood you initial question.

Hi Nelly! I just wanted to say that there wasn't much going on with the Big Debate......it started when someone commented about how perfect Meredith and Sage would be together, then someone else said that they took the impression that Sage was gay, then someone made the brilliant comment that gender wouldn't be a deciding variable to whether or not an extremely ancient vampire would like someone. Then, the deciding statement was that people, even in real life, just like who they like, and the gender of that person shouldn't really matter. Yeah, hope that sums it up!!! I can't wait until the next House of Night book comes out too!!! Oh, and by the way, it's so exciting to talk to a fellow fan halfway across the world!!!! England to California!!! Wow!!!

Hi, Danielle. It is true that L.J. is planning a sequel to The Forbidden Games. If you want a full synopsis, go to Guestbook 12, and about halfway down, under the heading "Hi, Julian Fans" it is there. However, you should finish reading the Forbidden Game BEFORE reading that synopsis, as it contains a few spoilers. Dark Visions is about a girl named Kait who is a pyschic, who goes to a boarding school to learn more about using her powers and is caught in a love triangle between herself, a good boy, and a bad boy. Also, if you are interested in reading more L.J., there are two companion novels about the Wildworld: The Night of the Solstice and Heart of Valor. They are a bit younger than her other books, but that doesn't change anything. I hope this post helps and happy reading!

bk 1- secret vampire; daughters of darkness; and spellbinder (or enchantress, depending on country)

bk 2- dark angle; the chosen; and soulmate

bk 3- huntress, black dawn; and witch light...

my favorite books are daughters of darkness; the chosen; and all of bk 3...

(BTW, do you guys in America spell favourite without a "U"? I've only ever met, like, 2 Americans and there is loads I didn't ask them. It's funny, cos whenether I read the Night World books, I always imagine the characters with British accents, cos that's all I really know . . . lol. Do we really sound posh?

You should definitely read The Night of the Solstice and Heart of Valor. They are awesome! I was worried that I wouldn’t like them because they are for a younger audience. It was a silly worry because Lisa’s books have never disappointed me. I’m an adult and I can honestly say that those books are certainly at the top of my list. They don’t have the romance that Lisa’s other books have, but there are so many other interesting elements that I don’t think you’ll miss it. They reminded me of the Narnia chronicles in the sense that four seemingly ordinary children go on a quest in a magical world in order to save our world. Solstice and Valor are also every bit as good as the Narnia chronicles and are full of adventure, humor, and magic.

Yes, we do spell favorite without the “U.” Americans leave “U” out of a lot of words (labor, color, flavor, etc.) I think it has something to do with pronunciation and word origin, but I won’t bore you with a language lesson. ; )

Well, didn't Michael mention at the end of the book that someone could just carve Julian's name back into the rune-stave? Besides, if he doesn't coming back, what will the sequel be about? Julian is one of my favorite L.J. Smith characters too, along with Damon and Gabriel.

Hello L.J Smith! With all the Harry Potter mania that just went on i was wondering if you were ever a fan of that series? And if so which house do you think Damon would be under? Ive tried to think of this my self but Damon is just so confusing!
Hope you are well,

Since I'm pursuing education that will result in a well-paying career and working on creating a graphic novel myself, I will not be able to attend or head a strike group as I have previously mentioned.

But here's an idea. When the books come out, open up MSPaint and create graphics to print out and leave in every book at stores in your area:

"This was not written by L.J.Smith. Harper Alloy fired her. Email or write to complain:


Alloy Entertainment
151 W 26th St 11th floor
New York, NY 1001"

Print out dozens of those graphics on basic paper and place these just inside of every Phantom book you find. Don't forget the ones behind the face front.

Ciao for now, ~DS

Thank You so much for writing and sharing your stories they have gotten my through some otherwise boring nights.

Lisa, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for writing the Night World series. I have truly enjoyed reading these books. I can not wait until Strange Fate comes out. I only hope to eventually be as good an author as you. I love the way that you keep in touch with your fans, and do what you can to keep us updated on things.

I recently read on this site that you are having health problems. I was wondering how you are doing. I really hope that you are doing well. I love your books so much! Every single one of them. I have to say that Forbidden Game and Vampite Diaries are my favorite ones, but they're all great! I hate that they took VD from you, that's just terrible. I really hope your health problems aren't serious. Thank you for your wonderful stories!

OMG, when I first came across the A + M-L story online here I swear I started to hyperventilate! I CANNOT WAIT FOR IT TO BE FINISHED!!!!!! :lol: The story is really good and such an awesome follow on the Daughters of Darkness. I agree with what somebody said in a previous Guestbook, LJ Smith, you should make a book of all your short stories. They're amazing!

I was wondering that too, I just finished reading Daughters of Darkness, & the M-L & Ash story on this site, does anyone know when the continuation of their story is coming out? or if L.J. is posting something on here about them or anything about them will be in the last Night World book she's writing now?

Hi, L. J.! I just read in an interview(a chat with L.J. Smith on the home page) that you have an idea for a book called the Moonbride. Is that an early name idea for another book, because that interview was a year ago, or is it a new book we haven't heard about yet? I hope so!

Hi Kat,
I think Lisa has mentioned getting some names from fans. She has asked a couple people on GB if she could use their names. In the Night World guide book it said she got Thierry’s name from graffiti on a bathroom door. So, I guess she probably gets them from a lot of different places.

FYI there is a site called babyhold.com that has lots of neat names. They let you search names from different countries. They even have categories like exotic names, cool names, celebrity names, etc. The names include meanings so that might be helpful if you’re naming a character with a notable trait. I hope this helps. BTW thanks for the info. about Change.org. It put me in touch with issues that are important to me.
