It got stellar reviews but due to a hideous cover and being mis-categorized as a middle-grade book rather than YA, it didn’t sell well until after The Vampire Diaries: The Awakening came out. I live in the Bay Area of California, with a backyard that is full of flowers, which I adore, especially with many different shades of roses.
I love to visit my friend Toni's little cabin in the Point Reyes National Seashore area, which has lots of trees, lots of animals, lots of beaches to walk on, and lots of places to hike.
I called The Night of the Solstice and I found an agent in a friend of the woman who typed up my manuscript.
This agent only sold books as a sort of hobby, and was not very knowledgeable about contracts, but she sent my book to Mac Millan Publishers Ltd., where it was (after a rewrite) taken on and published.
She also has no say in what happens in TVD after Midnight or any Secret Circle sequels. With TV/movies, you're presented with the imagination. "essance" of the book, but it will NOT, nor EVER will be the book. I'm barely hanging on to it I'm so disappointed with it. We, your fans, know your writing and love how you pull us all so deeply into the worlds you create. However it does make sense to me now I can tell what she wrote and did not, I'm actually a little relieved after reading phantom to know she is still the author I knew her to be and although this must be a very hard situation for her I know she will create more series that her fans will fall in love with.
Alloy has chosen to replace Lisa with a ghostwriter for Vampire Diaries after Midnight and any Secret Circle sequels. Plea When I heard there was a new Vampire Diaries book coming out, I was ecstatic. I started reading it and noticed it didn't pull me in as much as the previous novels. I am so disppointed that we will never get to find out what would have happened to our favorite characters if L. because of the dull programs in our industry today. It's very misleading to the public and if the work is not well written then it reflects bad on L. Michelle Hughes - Author I feel like a lot of the other readers here that the fact the Alloy pretty much took two of my fav. I used to look forward to the new releases but the only ones i will look forward to now are the books truly written by the authors i love Lisa isn't writing any more VD or SC books because Alloy decided to give these series to a ghostwriter.if LJ Smith did not write them then I will not buy them. I like both, they each hold a special place in my heart. Im abit embarresed but I am so in tune with the characters now that it wont be the same for me now, 'my Damon' wont be the real deal :(As an artist myself I think it's sad that LJ doesnt own all the rights to the world she created, however I understand what it's like to be starting out. Will Lisa Jane Smith really not write The Secret Circle sequel anymore?It's up to you to do the rest of The Vampire Diaries, only she knows how to give the magic and excitement to the story ... When you're given a commission you do your best to fill it. My heart will be officially broken if it's true and final…:sad: But...Hi YSTANO LISA WONT ADD HER STORY OF SECRET CIRCLE HERE AS SHE WILL GET SUED, IF SHE TRIED!That are her words when asked this Q prior SORRY - IM HEARTBROKEN 2I KNOW SHE CAN CONTINUE TO WRITE V. C BUT I ALSO KNOW IT NEVER WILL BE POSSIBLE DUE TO LESLIE MORGANSTEIN! D SHOW's CREDITSNot writing any more Secret Circle? The Secret Circle was my favorite and I always felt that there was more to the story.
