Vampire Diaries and Secret Circle Contest!

Mornings are slow. You’re tired, groggy, and you’d rather lick a skunk than go to school right now. You didn’t do your math homework, you’ve got no one to go to the Homecoming dance with, and this morning when you tried to hit the snooze button? You set your alarm clock on fire with the power of your mind.

If you live in the Vampire Diaries or Secret Circle books, it could happen. Both of the smash series, created by L.J. Smith, feature characters who are torn from their normal lives and shoved into a supernatural world they never suspected was real. In the Vampire Diaries series, Elena Gilbert finds herself the obsessive focus of a pair of vampire brothers . . . and the key to a scandalous past they seem doomed to repeat. In the Secret Circle books, Cassie Blake moves to New Salem and falls in with the popular crowd at school, only to discover they’re all members of an elite coven of witches.

Your turn: Write a story about a character who has just evolved into a supernatural being or discovered that he/she has supernatural powers. Need inspiration? Start reading The Vampire Diaries: The Hunters: Moonsong or Stefan’s Diaries: The Compelled from The Vampire Diaries, or The Secret Circle: The Divide on Figment!

  1. Hey! Can I do something about superpowers for this? I want to enter the contest and do something supernatural but I don’t want it to be vampires. I just want to do something about someone who discovers they have some new ability, an ability that will forever change their life. Is that okay?

  2. May I enter a story that has already been published, or will I have to repost it?

    Also, is there no word limit? Because I don’t see one…


  3. Is it alright to give the character his/her powers before the story starts, but still have them coping with it during the story?

  4. I entered and I really hope ppl like it. It’s called ” Creeden’s Angel.” I really hope I get a goal of 58 hearts.

    • Hey Sharon-
      We definitely hope to open our contests up internationally in the future, but at the moment we are only able to offer them to US and Canadian citizens. Let me know if I can help you with anything else!

  5. Why is this only for people from USA and Canada? What about the UK? Will there be any competitions that include the UK?
