L.J. Smith Fired from The Vampire Diaries Book Series: A Shocking Twist

A Shocking Revelation for The Vampire Diaries Fans

This week, fans of The Vampire Diaries have been buzzing with a rumor that has left them in disbelief. The word on the street was that L.J. Smith, the author of the book series that inspired the popular CW show, had been fired from completing her own creation. The rumor was confirmed by the author herself on her blog, as reported by Vampire Diaries Web and TVDNews.net. Smith’s heartfelt message to her fans read:

“…if you’ve asked me a question about the future books or the endgame of The Vampire Diaries and I’ve been vague about what’s in store, I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize. I really wasn’t looking forward to the day when I would have to talk about this.”

A Plea to Fans: Don’t Boycott Harper

In her blog post, Smith continued to plead with her fans not to hold a grudge against Harper, the publishing company behind the books. She wrote:

“…I want to ask anyone who was thinking of it, not to boycott Harper’s or anyone. It just doesn’t make sense. Although I wanted and still want more than anything to be able to continue The Vampire Diaries series myself, there’s no point in not trying the new books. (And remember, for fans of Bonnie and Damon, and strict Stefan and Elena fans, the immediate dynamics may be more to your liking.) Besides which, Midnight, which is all mine, is coming out in March, and I believe there may be some of my writing in Phantom.”

How Can an Author Be Fired from Her Own Book Series?

The burning question on everyone’s mind is: how can an author be fired from her own book series? According to TVDnews.net, L.J. Smith doesn’t actually own the rights to The Vampire Diaries; Alloy Entertainment does. Smith was hired to write the books back in the early to mid-90s when they were first published. Now, she will be replaced by a ghost-writer to complete the series. The reason for this unexpected separation between the author and the book company? The age-old nemesis of creative differences.

Spoilers for the Books and the Influence of the Show

It appears that Alloy Entertainment wants a “Stelena” endgame, as fans have dubbed it, rather than the “Delena” ending that Smith had planned. Could the popularity of the show’s storylines be influencing Alloy’s decision?

A Sad and Bizarre Turn of Events

The entire situation is not only disheartening but also downright strange. L.J. Smith’s name has become synonymous with The Vampire Diaries brand, and it was her dedication and creativity that made the books what they are today. It’s difficult to imagine looking forward to future TVD books with another author’s name on the cover. We’ll keep you updated on this story as it unfolds, but in the meantime, what are your thoughts on this shocking turn of events?
