So we've all heard of The Vampire Diaries, right? I absolutely LOVE this series written by L.J. Smith and I can't wait to watch a new episode every week. Imagine my reaction when I found out this week that L.J. Smith is to be fired from the show and replaced with a ghostwriter. What the hell is going on?! She WROTE the story, she CREATED the characters and so as far as I'm concerned, The Vampire Diaries belongs to her. Apparently not.
I want to direct you to a blog called "I Swim for Oceans" which is where I found out about the news and Melissa explains why this is happening. Please click here to read the story.
I agree with Melissa that this is a HUGE mistake and if there's ANYTHING book bloggers and fans of The Vampire Diaries can do about this, when we will! Spread the word - facebook it, tweet it, blog about it, tell your friends and PLEASE, PLEASE sign the petition here.
I want to support L.J. Smith and so I'm giving away one set of UK paperback copies of her books 1-5. These are the TV show tie in books. To win, please sign the petition (I'm working on the honour system here) and leave a comment below with your name and e mail address. This is a UK only contest HOWEVER if you are willing to pay for postage, then you can enter from any other country. Deadline is 21st February.
