It’s all a bit confusing with Vampire Diaries books of late. First we had news that L.J. Smith would be working on a prequel trilogy about Stefan, which then turned out to be a TV series tie-in. Now LJS has posted to her blog to say that The Return: Midnight has been written, and that she’s working on a brand new book universe trilogy, starting with Phantom. Aside from the title and a small hint at the end of LJS’s blog post (which might be spoilery for Midnight), it’s all very mysterious. As soon as there’s any more information about it, it will be up here ASAP.

Also, I have been finished with Midnight, the final book in the last Vampire Diaries trilogy about a month ago and am waiting (you can imagine how eagerly or maybe–if you’re not an author–you can’t) for the edits. I’ve also signed on for a new trilogy and finished the first book in it, Phantom. So there is more Vampire Diaries in store for readers of those books.

 
And in Strange Fate news:

And yes, Strange Fate will also come out as soon as I can finish it. The problem was that the Strange Fate contract got delayed and . . . well, just trust me, it’s coming, even if I type my fingers off.

Hang in there, guys. We’ve waited this long, we can make it to the end!
