Even though author Kerry Colburn celebrated the launch of Bitchcraft with a very witchy event at Queen Anne Book Company in Seattle, the simple spells are certainly not limited to any season. Kerry and her book were recently featured on Seattle Refined in a segment called “Don’t Get Mad, Get Even.” You can watch the video here to learn a few simple spells. (One even includes Brad Pitt.)
From the post:
A smidge of lavender, a skosh of rosemary and a few drops of essential oils. Say an incantation, and you have the making of something magical!
Is this witchcraft? No, it’s Bitchcraft.
Kerry Colburn uses herbs and everyday objects for her hexes, but inspiration for concocting these spells came from personal experience.
“Turns out I annoy easier [than most],” she said. “And what I don’t like [is] when someone annoys me – I don’t want it to ruin my whole day. I want to get back at them quickly and move on.”
Her spells don’t aim to hurt anyone, it’s more about – moving on.
“I think a lot of us, when something bugs us we stick with it all day,” said Colburn. “We think, ‘I should have said this,’ ‘I could have done that,’ and that’s giving that annoying person more power than they deserve.”
That’s where Colburn’s new book Bitchcraft: Simple Spells For Everyday Annoyances comes in…
