Plot synopses for the TV series prequel books, Stefan’s Diaries
We got the publication dates for the new Vampire Diaries TV series tie-in books a couple of days ago, and now we have the synopses up for for all three books in the Stefan’s Diaries series. The information comes from the UK publishers, Hodder & Stoughton, via Amazon UK. The first book (Origins) looks to be a novelization of what we know from flashbacks from season one, hopefully with some more tidbits thrown in. Books two and three (Bloodlust and The Craving) are all-new stories set in the past, and the synopses are behind a spoiler cut for those of you who’d prefer to wait to be surprised. The big question we have is whether these stories will be part of the official TV series canon or not.
Now, if we could just get some covers to ogle, we’d be happy bunnies.
Book One: Origins
Set during the Civil War, against a backdrop of grand estates, unimaginable riches, and deadly secrets, three teenagers in Mystic Falls, Virginia enter a torrid love triangle that will span eternity.
Brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore are inseparable until they meet Katherine, a stunning, mysterious woman who turns their world upside down. Siblings turned rivals, the Salvatores compete for Katherine’s affection, only to discover that her sumptuous silk dresses and glittering gems hide a terrible secret: Katherine is a vampire. And she is intent on turning them into vampires so they can live together—forever.

EMMYS 2010: WHICH OUTSIDERS DESERVE NOMINATIONS IN THE LEAD ACTOR AND ACTRESS CATEGORIES?
We’re less than 12 hours away from the 2010 Emmy Nominations announcement, and I’m feeling like a kid on Christmas Eve. A kid who is gonna be quickly disappointed to open umpteen boxes of socks, but still… Let me hold on to my feelings of unbridled optimism
that Vanessa L. Williams will take home the statuette for four awesome seasons of Ugly Betty for a little while longer. We’ve already discussed our hopes and dreams for unlikely nominees in the Best Supporting Actor and Actress divisions, as well as our out-of-left-field choices for Best Comedy and Drama series. Now let’s turn our attention to the Lead Actor and Actress races. I’ll get the party started:
Regina King, Southland: Didn’t get a nod last year, even though she should’ve. This year, her Det. Lydia Adams struggled to connect with potential new partners while her main man was laid up in a hospital bed, and King’s work was as evocative and subtle as ever. Probably too subtle for voters who fancy ham sandwiches, but still…
Ian Somerhalder, The Vampire Diaries: Yeah, his CW series has its slight moments, but Somerhalder’s impishly sexy performance could never be described as such. Even during the teen-angstiest moments of the vampire-girl-vampire triangle, he’s absolutely riveting. You could almost say he sucks all the blood out of the room.
