So I’m sure a lot of you are pretty sure of what I’m about to talk about since it’s a well talked-about topic this week.
The Vampire Diaries. A really popular, well-loved show, based on the books written by the favoured author L. J. Smith. Yeah, she’s been fired.
I couldn’t believe it when I heard. I don’t even know what to say. I’m pretty sure you can all judge my reaction to the news that she has been fired from the show.
I mean, L. J. Smith created the Vampire Diaries. They are her characters, her storylines and for someone to just take away something that she no doubt spent so much time and effort creating, shaping and moulding to what she wanted it to be…it’s just wrong.
To find out more about what happened, check out this post at ‘I Swim for Oceans’ which explains what happened and why.
Also, to help support L. J. Smith check out this cool giveaway at Narratively Speaking where you can win a set of her paperback copies of The Vampire Diaries 1-5.
Aaaaaand….to help out there is a petition you can sign right here. Please, please spread the word you guys. Let’s see if we can’t do something about it when we group together!
