Diehard fans of both The Vampire Diaries and the series of books the show is based on know that they aren’t the same thing. Certain elements from the novels haven’t made it into the show — but executive producer Julie Plec says that doesn’t mean they won’t borrow in the future. (Besides, she adds, some of what works in the books comes off, well, a bit “cheesy” on screen!)

Plec sat down with TVGuide.com on the Atlanta set of the CW series to talk about the relationship between the books and the show. What won’t make it to TV? Which relationship may not happen at all? Plus, Plec reveals she’s thinking of giving one couple more of a history.

Contests: Win “The Vampire Diaries” Swag!

Filed Under: | Books, Contests, Twitter

We’re going to hold a total of 3 (THREE) contests this summer. A little something to help you get through the hiatus (We Supernatural fans call it hellatus).


Help us get Twitter Followers

As I type this, we have 943 followers on our Twitter account (@xVampDiariesx). Twitter plays a huge part in how we advertise our site. Everything we post in our news updates auto-tweets to our twitter account. When this happens, it reminds our followers to visit our site.

I also try to interact with fans when I can. I also send out notices when I find them out, especially if I’m not at home on the computer. I tweet from my cell very often so if I hear a quick news flash and I’m at work, or even out shopping, I can tweet it right away. The beauty of technology!

I also get news heads up, or event notices from twitter as well. So really, it is an amazing website promotion tool and the more people we reach, the more the site gets noticed and the more people will get the news they need/want and the more we’ll get heads up when stuff is happening. It’s a big win-win situation.

So here’s the contest details:

1) We want to get 1500 followers by Friday, June 18th. That’s under 1000 followers in a week. It’s not impossible.
2) You need to be a twitter user to participate.
3) You need to be 18 years old and up to participate UNLESS if you win and are under 18, you get your parents to email me to confirm that they are allowing you to accept the prize.

Here is the mission:

1) To get new followers, we need YOU to advertise our twitter account.
2) The twitter user (who is already following us) that gets the most people to follow us on twitter will win the prize pack.
3) Each new twitter follower you recruit needs to tweet us using your twitter username. Here is an example of what that tweet should look like Hey @xVampDiariesx I’m following you now thanks to @memberwhoreferred me!

That important tweet is a contest entry. So make sure the people you recruit do that very important step. If they don’t, you won’t get an entry into the contest.
4) The twitter follower who gets the most entries is the winner.
5) You will need to answer a skill testing question to claim your prize.

The Prize Pack

Winner of this contest will win the entire The Vampire Diaries book series. Pictured here are the first 4 books (the non cw-cover is The Fury and Dark Reunion).

I will be purchasing the rest of the collection later today. The books may or may not be the cw cover. It depends on how much the books are and what I can find when I go shopping today.

These are the books you will receive:

    # 1.1 The Awakening*
    # 1.2 The Struggle*
    # 1.3 The Fury*
    # 1.4 The Dark Reunion*
    # 1.5 The Return: Nightfall
    # 1.6 The Return: Shadow Souls

* indicated the books already purchased.

The deadline to get your entry in is Friday, June 18th at Mdinight (11pm, eastern standard time).

Good Luck!!!!!

TWO MORE contests will be announced after this one closes!!

According to DreadCentral.com, there are some prequel novels coming out soon.

But before we get to the TV version of The Vampire Diaries franchise, some good news dropped this week for fans of the novels. The Bookseller has confirmed that UK publisher Hodder Children’s Books will be putting out three new titles in L.J. Smith’s Vampire Diaries series that will be prequels to the original books and will be called Vampire Diaries: ­Stefan’s Diaries. There was no confirmation of when they’ll be released, but we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears open.
