"Hilariously conversational, deceptively deep, and phenomenally
illustrated, Enchantments will blow your mind and make you
laugh while imparting expert knowledge of witchcraft and why it's
so needed today."-Natasha Lyonne, actress and producer
"Imagine that your best friend, a supremely cool, funny, and irreverent person, is also a witch willing to educate and inspire you toward your own witchy practice with humor, sass, and intelligence. Wouldn't that be the greatest? Thankfully, Mya Spalter has written Enchantments, a book infused with jokes, real talk, occult know-how, stylish lingo, and serious best-friendliness. Enchantments has totally jump-started my own practice, and I am feeling the results daily. This book is magic-literally!"-Michelle Tea, author of Modern Tarot
"Part memoir, part recipe book, and part poetry collection, Enchantments lets readers in on the great secret of all witchcraft-that being a witch is about being free to be yourself. In a spirit of collaboration and community and with limber humor and wit, Mya Spalter empowers all of us to be the best magical practitioners we can be. A future classic for both new and experienced witches, or anyone in the mood for a little divination."-Dorothea Lasky, author of Milk and co-creator of Astro Poets
"All the things you've always wanted to know about becoming a witch but were afraid to ask! We can all use more magic in our lives in these trying times, and Enchantments will help us get started. Now who wants to join my coven and cast some spells?!"-Kimya Dawson, singer/songwriter, The Moldy Peaches
