L. J. Smith, the author of The Vampire Diaries book series, has put up a message on her website. Check it out!
September 10: The Vampire Diaries TV Show on the CW at 8 Pacific and Eastern, 7 Central!
May I make a plea for everybody to try to be patient (especially with the pilot episode)? The Twilight Zone feeling rapidly diminishes after that. Ian Somerhalder is being recognized as a superior villain; and I feel sure that under those brown curls Elena’s scheming mind is simply waiting for an opportunity to emerge. Really, guys, the series people have been nice to me lately and I get to hear about (and I hope get, to give to you) freebie things like posters and “sunscream” and “Fang” dental floss, all part–along with a blood drive (“Starve a Vampire: Donate Blood!) in New York. Even Brazil is all het up about the books and the show. I’ve waited this long to speak out, and my verdict is: give it a chance.
