Evensong: Paradise LostMany fans of The Vampire Diaries books were left upset and bereft back when Alloy made the decision to replace L.J. Smith as the writer of the series, and decided to take the story in a different direction than the one LJS had planned. While the book series continues to be successful, many fans have wondered what would have happened with LJS at the helm, where the story would have gone, and who would Elena choose – Stefan or Damon?

Well, it’s a fantastic day to be a loyal LJS fan, because we’re about to find out the answer to those questions, thanks to Amazon’s Kindle Worlds. For those who aren’t aware, Kindle Worlds allows the publication of fanfiction about certain titles (including The Vampire Diaries) through Amazon. This means that L.J. Smith is finally able to publish her intended vision of The Vampire Diaries for fans to enjoy. While LJS does point out that these stories class as fanfiction and not an official part of the series, we’re sure that in the heart of many fans they’ll count where it matters.

The Evensong trilogy will continue from where Midnight left off, taking an alternate path from the official Hunters trilogy. Evensong: Paradise Lost and Evensong: The War of Roses: Part 1 will be available from the Kindle Worlds store on the 23rd January, 2014.

Head on over to L.J. Smith’s website for her announcement, as well as details on the next two stories.

XXAs The Vampire Diaries Season 4 comes to a close with this Thursday’s finale, Graduation (EP423), now seemed the right time to post in this here quasi-official-ish (that’s totally a word, shush) space that I (Vee) am co-writing the fourth installment of Love You To Death: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries (ECW Press) with V-D.net episode reviewer extraordinaire Crissy Calhoun.

Those of you familiar with Crissy’s previous installments of Love You To Death know to expect: an in-depth episode guide with super-sized expansions on Crissy’s weekly Vampire Diaries In Review posts; a detailed timeline encompassing four seasons of significant events; a thorough index of music played on the show, listed by scene within each episode; sidebars full of fun show trivia and insight into filming; and a slew of interviews with the writers and crew that bring Mystic Falls to life every Thursday. Crissy and I are extra-excited about the interviews, so here’s a preview of who’s adding a special behind-the-scenes flavor to Love You To Death 4:

  • Joshua Butler, director of The Five (EP404)
  • Tyler Cook, editor
  • Caroline Dries, writer and co-executive producer
  • Jose Molina, writer and co-producer
  • Dave Perkal, director of photography
  • Michael Suby, composer
  • Pascal Verschooris, producer and director for O Come, All Ye Faithful (EP409)

 
And we’re working on more! (Yes, more! I know, right? Cross your fingers!)

The book will be out October 1, 2013 on ECW Press. It is already available for pre-order on Amazon US and Amazon UK, and you can even add it to your To Read list on GoodReads. And yes, it will be available on Kindle, Nook, iBookstore, and everywhere ebooks are sold. And hey, if you buy a hard copy of the book, ECW Press will give you the electronic version for free. Something to keep in mind!

Here’s the official book description and the full-size cover:

The fan-favorite Love You to Death series returns with an essential guide to the fourth season of The CW’s hit show The Vampire Diaries. The season 4 companion delves headlong into the twists and turns of each episode, exploring the layers of rich history, supernatural mythology, historical and pop culture references, and the complexities and motivations of the show’s memorable cast of characters. Add expanded chapters on the making of the show, the people who bring the world of Mystic Falls to life, and the intensely loyal audience that keeps it thriving, and you have a guide as compelling and addictive as the show itself.

Previous volumes of Love You to Death have featured exclusive interviews with executive producer Julie Plec, series directors and editors, guest-star actors, and fandom leaders.

Name Elena's Teddy Bear!

To celebrate the release of Love You To Death – Season 3: The Unofficial Companion to The Vampire Diaries by Vampire-Diaries.net contributor Crissy Calhoun, we’re having a contest to name Elena’s teddy bear! Crissy has confirmed with executive producer Julie Plec that the bear is currently nameless, and we’re calling on all you TVD fans out there to help give little teddy a name. (Please note that this is a contest purely for fun, not a promise that the actual teddy bear will end up with the winning name.)

THIS CONTEST IS OPEN TO EVERYONE – yes, that means you too, international fans!

FOUR WINNERS (CHOSEN AT RANDOM) WILL RECEIVE: A signed copy of Love You To Death 3!

But what about the GRAND PRIZE, you ask? Crissy will choose her favorite name for Elena’s teddy bear from all of the entries and that GRAND PRIZE WINNER will not only receive a signed copy of Love You To Death 3, but also a Vampire Diaries prize pack that includes some snazzy official TVD merchandise (t-shirts, jewelry, etc). (Ever seen a wild Vee go crazy over a convention merch table? Yeeeeeah.)

RULES & HOW TO ENTER:

  • Once again, YES, this giveaway is open to ALL, including international fans.
  • You may enter via Twitter or the comments in this post, but not both! Comment entries are for those who don’t have a Twitter account. If you have Twitter, use Twitter!
  • How to enter via Twitter: First, make sure you’re following @crissycalhoun and @tvdnews (because we will need to DM if you’re a winner). All tweets must include the name you’ve chosen for Elena’s teddy bear and these two hashtags – #LYTD3 and #TVDTeddy. [Example: Elena's teddy bear is obviously named MR. CUDDLES! #LYTD3 #TVDTeddy] You DO NOT need to @reply to us or Crissy in your entries; the hashtags are how we will log the entries. ONLY ONE TEDDY BEAR NAME PER TWEET. Also, if your tweet does not include BOTH hashtags, your entry will not count. Do not tweet the same name multiple times. Each of your entries must be unique. You may enter more than once, HOWEVER if you spam the entries, we reserve the right to ask you to stop. If you continue to spam after we’ve asked you to ease up, we will disqualify you. Let’s be reasonable!
  • How to enter if you DO NOT have Twitter: Leave a comment on this post, but make sure you do so with an email address. (As in filling in space where it asks for your email address under username; we won’t publish your email!) We need a way to contact you if you win! You may leave multiple entries, but as mentioned above, please be reasonable and don’t spam the comments. Only one teddy bear name per entry!
  • Your entry may not be STELENA, DELENA, STEFAN OR DAMON. Sorry to be fun-killers but this is a simple way to avoid too many duplicate entries. Remember: Crissy will be picking a favorite grand prize winner, so you need to be creative, funny, unique.
  • Deadline for entries is THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 11:59 PM EASTERN. Winners will be notified next week.

Contest starts now! GOOD LUCK!

Special Interview & Giveaway: Author Sarah Rees Brennan Talks Team Human & The Vampire DiariesYou may know author Sarah Rees Brennan from her essay in A Visitor’s Guide to Mystic Falls (“Women Who Love Vampires Who Eat Women – Gender Dynamics and Interspecies Dating in Mystic Falls”), her hilarious livetweets of The Vampire Diaries, or her Demon’s Lexicon trilogy of YA urban fantasy novels. Now she’s here to chat with us about her TVD fandom and her new vampire novel, Team Human (cowritten with Justine Larbalestier). Read on to hear about her adventures as a young L.J. Smith fan in Ireland, her hopes for Season 4, and why she wants you to give Team Human a chance.

Make sure you read all the way to the end for your chance to enter to win an autographed copy of Team Human!
 
We know you’re an L.J. Smith fan from way back. What attracted you to her books as a kid/teenager? Were they popular in Ireland, or did you have to find ways to import them yourself?

XXList to my tale. I was about thirteen when I found a second-hand copy of the fourth Vampire Diaries book [Dark Reunion], in Dublin. I read it and felt MYSTERIOUSLY COMPELLED by it, for reasons I didn’t fully understand at the time (Damon) even though obviously I wasn’t following everything that was going on (but I would have followed Damon anywhere he asked me to go. Book Damon had a Ferrari with ILLEGALLY TINTED WINDOWS. Such a bad boy! No vehicle was lawful around him).

But I was thirteen. Amazon hadn’t caught on. If a book wasn’t in bookshops, I didn’t know what to do.

The long years wore on!
