No. No no no no nonononono

December 15, 2008
Actually what I’m doing is staying nailed to the keyboard writing the next new Vampire Diaries: The Return book, Shadow Souls. I’m finding it even more fun to write than the first book, as Damon takes Elena, Bonnie, and Meredith as slaves—wearing collars and leashes, no less—into the underworld to search for the key that will free Stefan. More news on this later, and of course a sneak preview on my website as soon as I can write one sneaky enough.
Look, I get it.  I’m 31 now.  I can handle a little kink in my stories.  (That’s like a joke. You probably would have to know me in a biblical sense to get it though.) Except no, because your books are sweetly dumbed-down and sexless (and so, so white) and, as we will soon learn, DAMON IS A HORRIBLE CHARACTER.  Yes, I know, my childhood crush, but again: I’m a grown-up now.  I see now so many Dam*n characters from my past that I loved are actually terribly abusive.  ON TOP OF THAT, your books are YA, and many of your readers picking up the reissues are YA too, and this generation of girls is screwed up enough without reading jumped-shark bullshit filled with your kink fantasies.
There is no way on God’s green earth I am picking up the third reissue.  Don’t think I won’t read it and tear it to shreds on here though.  I will.  Because this…is horrible.  This is grooming.
