#CoverReveal! Egyptian Cat Eye by DJ Shaw

When I traveled to Egypt on a mission to rescue a young witch, I thought it would be nothing more than a simple snatch and grab. Instead, what I found was a vengeful god determined to get the attention of the entire world and a girl who was much more than merely a witch. Add a magical cat’s eye gemstone choker to the mix, and things seem pretty dire. But I didn’t volunteer for this mission just to back down when things look like they’re going to be difficult.

Pulling myself up by my boot straps, I follow my locator spell to the Pyramids of Giza, and that’s when things get dicey. I know I need to get this witch back to Mystic Falls and the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted, but that’s going to prove to be more tricky than any of us were planning on.

About DJ Shaw

Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1977, DJ Shaw was 17 before she was able to see most of the United States. When she was 17, she decided to join the fair, traveling with them to Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. Once the fair arrived in Lake Charles, DJ had decided it was time to go home, that she had had enough of traveling with the fair. She much rather preferred to sit around writing, or even telling, the lives of the people who lived in her head. She had been good at story-telling from the time she was about ten, when she scared herself so bad with her story of the Boogey-man that she couldn’t move off her bed. Her siblings would come to her for their scare fix, because they knew she could come up with something on the spot.

Having found what she loved to do at an early age, she continued to write down her stories and any poetry that came into her head. She had stacks upon stacks of notebooks filled with her work. Her love of horror movies made her stories that much more chilling.

When she’s not writing, she’s listening to music, supporting her favorite adopted brother and his band “Traveler in Pain”, playing with her five children, spending time with her husband of seven years or watching horror movies in the middle of the night just for the scare factor.

#TVD Series Rewatch: Season One Part II by DJ Shaw #VampireDiaries

This post is part of a 16 piece rewatch series here on the BWC blog.  Each week is hosted by one of the BWC authors, and they write the rewatch post for half of a season.  For more information about this week’s author, be sure to check out the information included at the bottom of the post.  Thank you and enjoy the rewatch hijinx!



I started watching The Vampire Diaries about three years ago. I hadn’t really wanted to give the series a chance since I had read the book when I was a teen. The Vampire Diaries books were my favorite go-to books when I ran out of things to read. I mean I would carry one of those books with me everywhere and they were so well read that the covers were starting to wear in places (I had paperbacks lol), so to say that I felt the show couldn’t do the books justice was an understatement.

I’m not entirely sure what piqued my interest and caused me to start watching the show but let me tell you I was hooked from the very first episode. By episode 11 in the first season it was like I was inside the show (which for me is a rare feeling when it comes to TV shows and movies), standing apart of the actors but still very much involved with the scene. From the moment Elena discovered she looked like Katherine until the moment she realized just how much of a vampire Stefan really was.

I recently binged watched the first season this last week since I knew I was going to be doing this recap for all of you 😉
