Nothing new...Unless you haven't heard yet, but just recently LJ Smith was given the go ahead contract for a New Vampire Diaries series called The Hunters.

According to her publishers they wanted her to give the series one name.
She did a contest and had everyone pick the name for the next series and The Hunters struck through.


The Hunters. I suppose this is because the core group will be going to college together, where they will meet new characters and find mysteries to solve, both occult and otherwise.

What will the three individual books be called? Unless something changes, they will be Phantom, which will should be out in the summer of 2011, Moonsong, and Eternity. I'll post dates for the last two books when I hear them from my publisher.



From LJ Smith's Blog..

There is a wealth of information on her blog I encourage you to check it out on her webpage. The address to her website is in the "LJ smith new site" thread under the general folder.

Yes the characters at the same...but she will add some new characters to the mix, I'm sure.

Hopefully the series will be as good as when LJ smith has written it.

I think Damon will come back in some way considering his name was on the last page on whoever was thinking about him....

I hope you are right about that. I really do.

thats true, but thats back when the original author wrote the book. She got fired because she wasn't allowed to write about Elena & Damon, only about Elena & Stefan, therefore the next author might not bring Damon back what so ever.. which to me, would be very heartbreaking :((

One of the reasons why I read the book is for Damon not Stefan & Elena

:) I have to admit that I too read it for Damon and not Stefan and Elena.

I really hope that Harper and Collins come here to read these comments.

even though I did feel a little bit bad for Stefan, he did get it too easy though ;P Damon has been suffering all along.


message 20: by Graziella, Mrs.Bourne (new)

Graziella (grazia) | 1453 comments Mod
yeah...especially when that bug was in his body. That and the fact (view spoiler) were annoying for him. I would be pissed off as well. lol


message 21: by Emilia &#x1f319; (new)

Emilia &#x1f319; (milly_94) | 31 comments yupp, literally what good has happened to Damon? nothing. Stefan came, got Elena, the end of story. its time for Damon to be happy, too.. i feel well sorry for him, he's the quiet sufferer that puts a brave mask on and hides behind all this fake carelessness.

I would agree. I hope Damon somehow comes back to life or something

Graziella (grazia) | 1453 comments Mod
I would hope so too. I also hope that he at least regains those lost memories...before the fact of what is going to happen to him in the end of the story. :(

I am right now thinking that we should just start our own Hunters series. Make it so that we can write the plot and what will happen to the characters. I've seen the people on here do some kick butt writing and I think it would be fun. I've read a lot of people's thougts of what should happen next form FanFiction.net. In them Damon always comes back.

the thing is everyone has different view points on what should happen, i mean yeah it does look like we all want damon back, with elena. but some fans might not like damon or want them together.


ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ  | 175 comments Mod
Yeah, that's why everyone writes their own if they want to. We don't have to work on it like a group.

Maybe we can make a folder for just fanfiction? That way if anyone wants to post their work they can.


message 28: by Alethea (new)

Alethea Rivera (alethearivera) | 219 comments That's a really great idea. A place where they can simply fool around. :)

:) I actually forgot that i did make a folder just for it too LOL...

message 31: by Jojobean (new)

Jojobean I heard this series was not going to be written by L.j.Smith


message 32: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Healy (majessticon) | 21 comments No, it's not. She gave a fairly revealing, heart-rending interview about the whole thing

here

I will definitely not be buying the Hunters series.

Is everyone going to be reading Phantom out of curiosity? I think it is coming out soon it was in a email from chapters (Canadian book store) and I think also KOBO.

Graziella (grazia) | 1453 comments Mod
Okay here it is:

Phantom : October 25, 2011

Moonsong : March 13, 2012

Eternity: still not ready?

already the first book phantom received a 3 star rating from 72 reviews based from Canadian book readers....

Ok, I saw the next book to the VD series and it has L.J Smith as the author. What is up with that?


ⓘsⓐbεℓℓⓐ  | 175 comments Mod
