Remember way back on January 5th, when we posted about a curious listing on the Harper Teen website? The one called Stefan’s Diaries? (The posting has since been removed.) A few days ago, author L.J. Smith posted a blog entry that had us wondering if we were misunderstanding her, or if she was saying what we now know for sure she was saying: There’s going to be yet another Vampire Diaries trilogy.
Bookseller.com is reporting that U.K. publishing house Hodder has picked up the rights to Smith’s next project: a Vampire Diaries prequel trilogy called Stefan’s Diaries – yep, prequel, as in taking place before the original Vampire Diaries series.
And, sorry, Night World fans – according to LJS, it looks like this new trilogy will be coming out before the long-awaited final volume in that series, Strange Fate.
