L. J. Smith’s new Vampires Diaries series

on 15 January 2014. Posted in 2014

img Evensong CI’m very pleased to finally be able to make this announcement. I apologize for having kept all of you waiting so long, but getting everything finalized took longer than I initially thought it would. As some of you probably know, Amazon has launched a new area called Kindle Worlds. This is a place where people can write fan fictions based on certain books, movies, shows, games, and music. The Vampire Diaries is one of the series that Amazon has obtained the license to include in their Worlds. This means that I can continue to write my version of The Vampire Diaries. (Remember, these books are written as fan fiction and are not part of the official series.

See below for the book “covers” and descriptions of the novels.

The Evensong arc will pick up more or less where Midnight left off and takes place in an alternate world from the official books that follow Midnight. The three books in this arc are Paradise Lost, The War of Roses, and Into the Wood. The first novel, Paradise Lost, and the first part of the second novel, The War of Roses, will be available

January 23, 2014.

See the countdown clock on the home page of my website for how long until the books are launched!

Also available on January 23, 2014 is my new bibliography/booklist, which is much easier to I understand (I think; most of the actual work was done by the invaluable Christina Crowley) than the old versions.

I’m dedicating these new Kindle Worlds books to my readers, worldwide. Thank you, friends, for your many messages of kindness and appreciation. I would also like to thank Amazon for all its enthusiasm and consideration in publicizing this new series. Amazon, you rock!

Before anyone asks the burning question, I’ll answer it: no, this is not the end of The Vampire Diaries series, but if all goes well and my readers wish it, I will continue writing fan fiction books in this series to the endgame. That’s what I have planned.

Please do let me know what you think of this new fan fiction trilogy!

Evensong: Paradise Lost

img Evensong ParadiseLost Cover

This fanfic is based on The Vampire Diaries book series and takes place after the volume Midnight.

Damon is back and enjoying his vampire existence to its fullest. Elena, Bonnie and their friends are in their third week at Dalcrest College, ordinary students aware of an extraordinary world that verges on their own campus.

Stefan is scarcely aware that he is living in a fragile paradise with Elena as his devoted girl . . . until one night it all shatters. He wakes from a dream to find Elena limp and white in his arms and rushes her to the hospital for a massive transfusion,

Elena survives, but Stefan decides that there is only way that she will ever truly be safe is without him. To make his exit complete, Stefan removes himself from the memories of Elena, her friends, and all of Fell’s Church.

Can true love ever really be forgotten? Will Damon finally have Elena by his side as his Princess of Darkness? The story begins in Evensong: Paradise Lost.

 

 
 
 
 

Evensong: The War of Roses: Part 1

img Evensong2 Cover 2014Elena and her friends now have no conscious memories of Stefan—but each is having a difficult time adapting to a world without him. Damon can scarcely put out fires fast enough.

Bonnie feels as if she’s going insane. Her latest oddity is sleepwalking across the Dalcrest campus with only a golden-eyed white “dog” as a companion. This behavior terrifies the others, especially given the recent attacks in neighboring towns that leave girls drained of blood.

More, Bonnie finds herself caught up in her own love triangle with Matt’s shy new roommate, Bastian, and Damon. She realizes that Damon should be completely off limits, but she can’t help feeling there is someone else who is Elena’s perfect partner somewhere.

No one knows much about Bastian, who has white-blond hair and golden eyes, but he doesn’t seem to like Damon. Is Bastian just jealous of Damon’s affection for Bonnie or does he have some darker secret?

Meanwhile, both red roses and black are mysteriously appearing for Bonnie and Elena. Who are they from, and why do they seem so important? The War of Roses has just begun. . . .

 
 
Look for L. J. Smith’s new Vampire Diaries books!

Loved youre series and honestly I stopped reading the series once I knew you didn't write them it just didn't feel right :sigh: but im confused by "fanfic" do you mean that the writing is a mix of what you had originally wanted or a mix of what you and youre readers wanted? If these two books is the way you had intended youre series to go im down for reading them cant wait :D

Hi,
I am so, so, so... glad that you decided to keep your original plans for The Vampire Diaries alive even if it has to be called fanfiction. As a HUGE Bamon (in the books) fan, I was absolutely devastated when it was revealed you were fired from your own book and that there was no planned future for Bamom. As soon as I heard this I made a vow not to read The Vampire Diaries again since not only was there no Bamon but the thought of someone being fired from their own works put me off reading it anyway. I found it very unfair. However, I have only just discovered about these new stories and I can't even begin to explain how happy I am. I am going to start them as soon as possible and I really hope there is more to come.

M.A

:D :D :D

I would like to let you know how thrilled I am that you are able to continue the books. Like other fans, I stopped reading the series when you stopped writing them. It did not feel right to me. It does not matter to me what "genre" the books are under. I think this is awesome. Thank you !

From what I can tell on amazon, these books are not available in true book form. Just see the only way to get the books is thru a kindle cloud reader. Will these books at some time be available in true book form? Thanks

Hi,
I don't think Amazon makes any of their Kindle World books available in paper form. But you can still read Kindle books if you don't have a Kindle. Here is a link for a free download through Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html?docId=1000493771

It will allow you to read Kindle books on your computer, phone, or iPad. I hope this helps. :-)

I am absolutely gutted. I'm in the UK and it appears that it is not possible to access Kindle Worlds from amazon.co.uk
If I go to amazon.com I can see the books but am unable to buy them
I have emailed Amazon about this 2 or 3 times, but have had no response :sad:
Are you able to shed any light on whether the fanfic books will become available in the UK? I have waited so long to be able to read what really happens in Vampire Diaries, rather than the rubbish written by the ghost writer.

I am also in the uk I feel the same as you I got a response from amazon heres there coments to me

I am sorry, If the book is not available from the UK site then that is not published in UK yet. As a UK resident, you'll not be able to purchase the book from international site due to publisher and geographical restrictions.

they said I need to contact the publisher to find out if it will ever be released in the uk

+2 # Whom will Elena end up with?Guest 2014-05-14 02:32
Uhmmmm. I just finished reading the Salvation: Unmasked. AND I AM DISAPPOINTED. I never thought Elena would end up with Damon. I always knew that the Hunter series and the Salvation series were ghostwritten. And I also knew that Ms. LJ Smith has written a "fanfiction" about TVD. And I must say that I am more intrigued and excited with the Evensong series. Because she is the only one who REALLY knows her characters. Not even a ghoshtwriter can comprehend the true personality of eac character.

But the question remains: Whom will Elena end up with?

Stefan or Damon? I am excited to find out. When will the Evensong: Into the Wood come out?

I feel so bad for everyone that isn't able to get the Kindle World books. It is not something Lisa chose to do. It has to do with the publishing rights in different countries.
I really hope that some day all Lisa's books will be available to everyone.

So I just finished reading The Salvation Vol.3 and I was so upset that I wanted to see what other people where saying about the final series. I just found out that it was ghost written and I am now even more mad than I was before. No wonder the series took off into such a terrible ending of the original story. I am now trying to figure out how to read Evensong, but I do not have a kindle and am not great with computers... could anyone please help me figure out a way to read the original series so that I will no longer have to be upset with the terrible ending of the published ghost written books.

I believe you can download a PC app/ program for free from Amazon to read the kindle books. Unfortunately I am in the UK and it appears you can only get these in the US. :(
I too was very upset by the last book and ending of the ghostwritten series. Its a shame because I didn't hate the others, even tho they weren't a patch on the originals, but now it has ruined the whole series for me! So need to read these new LJ Smith books!!!!

-1 # NO DELENA!!!!!Guest 2014-07-20 03:14
SPOILERS: I disagree with people that want a Delena endgame completely! Firstly what would be the point of lJS going with a Delena final if the ghost writer has already confirmed that they are ending with Delena. Secondly, the TV show will also probably go Delena, and finally, a big part of lJS's original story was Damon's growing relationship with someone that wasn't Elena and how he was starting to break free from her quite frankly, manipulative persona. He was starting to fall for the 'underdog' and this is what made the story. The ghost writer and TV show both disfigured LJS's ideas and I don't think she will be heading in the same direction as her 'rivals', if she was she wouldn't have been fired from her own books. if you really want Delena you have two other platforms to go to. Personally it's BAMON all the way. They had the most intriguing, growing and lovable relationship and I stopped reading as soon as it became clear the ghost writer had ripped away their potential.

I disagree, of course Miss LJ was developing both Bamon & Delena but one of the reasons she was fired was because of the Delena in her books, they wanted strictly stelena but LJ didnt want just that, we all ship who we want & ill stuck with Delena cause they are the superior couple with passion & chemistry. :zzz

Cool. You are right, we are all entitled to our opinions, and whilst I still disagree with you, no disrespect of your opinion was intended... My point was since Delena is already happening in the ghost-writer version and the TV show I wanted a version that would satisfy Bamon fans, because we feel mislead and unsatisfied with the way L.J Smith left their relationship(by force of course)she stated she wanted more Bamon and we missed out on that while Delena still lives in the ghost-writer version and the show. Sorry if that wasn't too clear before. :-)

Hi,

I am also in the UK, but have been able to buy the books by transferring my account from Amazon.uk to Amazon.com to do this you need to first log in to your amazon account, then go to: Manage my kindle, then go to Country Settings, it will ask for an address instead click the link at the top where it says "You are currently linked to Amazon.uk. Click Here to learn more...etc" then click "learn about transferring your kindle account to Amazon. Com" at the bottom. You will now be able to buy the books and read them on your computer.

I hope the instructions are clear enough. Good luck the books are def worth the trouble.

It doesn't matter what Lisa decides the endgame will be (Bamon, Delena, Stelena, other), what's important is that its HER endgame and that she'll be able to write the ending how she wanted, and also with as much freedom she wanted, which she didn't have under Alloy. Why does there have to be all the fan wars? :(

However, someone's previous comment "any address will probably do" got me thinking. I just found any US address on the internet. Probably a bit naughty but it worked.
