Win a Copy of The Witch's Cauldron, Ends May 1, 2017

Win a copy of The Witch's Cauldron, The Craft, Lore & Magick of Ritual Vessels by Laura Tempest Zakroff, a collectible book cover flat, and a 5x7 of the chapter opener that I'll sign for you! 

It's giveaway time again! The latest addition to Llewellyns The Witch's Tools series, The Witch's Cauldron, The Craft, Lore & Magick of Ritual Vessels by Laura Tempest Zakroff, and I really think you're going to love it! I was honored to create the illustrations for this excellent book and I just received my "illustrator copies" and a few book cover flats as well, so I thought this would be a nice time to do a giveaway. One lucky winner drawn at random on May 1 will get a copy of The Witch's Cauldron, a collectible book cover flat, and I'm also including a 5x7 print of the chapter opener, signed and personalized just for you. You can frame it or add it to your Book of Shadows!


I had a blast with these illustrations for the book, Laura, being an artist herself, gave me great direction on what she wanted to see in her book, she was really great to work with. 

You'll notice that the cover doesn't look the same as the other covers in this series, there's a very good reason for that, Llewellyn Worldwide has decided to re-design all the covers of the Witch's Tools series.  I'm delighted to report that the new covers will be featuring my line art from each book! Whooo-hooo! 




These will be the first Llewellyn book covers to feature my art that were not companions for my oracle/tarot decks! As you know, I really thought the original covers were fun, but I do think these new covers are super witchy and really reflect the material inside. wonderfully! The art department did a great job with the vision and design. I wanted to make sure to tell you about the other books getting new covers so you can snatch up the books in this series (Including my book The Witch's Mirror) with original covers while you can, I'm squirreling away a few myself since they might just become collectors items!

Laura did a great job with this book, one of the perks of being a book illustrator is that I get to read them first! The Witch's Cauldron is full of lots of great information about cauldrons, including history, folklore, traditional and innovative ways to use them for all kinds of magic, caring for them, and includes many different kinds of cauldrons you may not have considered. As always in this series, you'll find fantastic contributions by other witchy writers that share their perspective on magical cauldrons including Jason Mankey, Gwion Raven, Meredith Spies and more. Be sure to follow Laura Tempest Zakroff on Facebook for updates on her book tour, and visit her website http://www.lauratempestzakroff.com/

    1. MY EX IS FINALLY BACK TO ME

      I was so depressed when my ex left me for another woman. it made me felt like i was not relevant and my heart and love life was seriously destroyed. i could not concentrate in anything i was doing. i went online and searched for help but could not find any genuine spell caster until i went to Ocala Florida to visit my aunt to ease the depression and loneliness. when i got to Florida, i explained to my aunt who then felt pity for me and told me the secret she have not told anyone about the success in her marriage with her man. she then took me to the temple of powerful Dr. Ugo Wonders whom i met and explained my problems to. he promised to help me because of my aunt. i trusted his words and provided him with the materials needed to help me get my ex back and to my greatest surprise, after 48 hours of casting the spell, my Ex cam back on his knees begging for me to forgive him. i was shocked and surprised at the magic. we are happily married now and everything is working fine with us.I promised Dr. Ugo that i will never keep this a secret because he brought back my life and my world and that i will hare my testimony to the general public.
      My advice goes to any one out there who is emotionally depressed or having any similar relationship problem, to contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his direct email generalspelltemple@gmail.com or call his temple line on +1 386-336-9876 he is the best in Florida....

I'm excited to see your illustrations and to add this one to my collection. The Witches mirror was so wonderful and even if I don't win the contest, I hopened you'll offer some signed copies on your etsy site!

  3. I love the cauldron in Brave! Especially the scene where Merida has no idea what she is doing and accidentally blows the whole place up! The idea that the cauldron could act like a phone or place to receive messages instead of just a place to conjour spells.. I love when books or movies make it a device to scry as well. ✨

  12. My favorite cauldron magic is from the Black Cauldron or Sword in the Stone (they are blurred in my brain. I just remember things dancing and singing). I loved that as a kid. Also Bewitched had at least one episode. I love Bewitched, it has been my favorite since I was four. I also love Hocus Pocus! :) Love your stuff! I have a few of your things. You're AWESOME!! :) <3

    1. Oops, did that wrong and can't edit it. XD
      My favorite fictional cauldron magic is actually from Nightmare Before Christmas. Sally has a massive smoking cauldron, to which she adds nightshade, wormswort and frogs breath. It's actually dinner for Dr Finklestein,the wormswort and frogs breath are favored ingredients, and the nightshade is the magical sleeping element. Lol.

  21. My favorite cauldron is the one from the original Clash of the Titans movie. The three witches around their cauldron brewing up trouble. Being very young when it first came out, it made me scared of witches but also enchanted with them and started researching greek mythology and realizing there were other paths outside of Christianity. As always a great fan of your work and pay tribute to my Triple Goddess statue daily on my altar as well as when I wear my dyrad necklace.

  37. Hands down, Macbeth. Nothing like this one. :) ~ Shea Morgan
    Song of the Witches: “Double, double toil and trouble” by William Shakespeare

    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
    Fillet of a fenny snake,
    In the cauldron boil and bake;
    Eye of newt and toe of frog,
    Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
    Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
    Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
    For a charm of powerful trouble,
    Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn and cauldron bubble.
    Cool it with a baboon's blood,
    Then the charm is firm and good.
    Macbeth: IV.i 10-19; 35-38
    Source: The Random House Book of Poetry for Children (1983)

  40. I love the "Witch's Tools" series, and will be thrilled to see your art on the new covers! I'm an old Crone Witch, but I find that even after almost 40 years, these books can still teach me something. I would be head over hills to win this, especially with the autographed print. As a daughter of Cerridwen, I have many cauldrons, my favorite is the one I use for scrying.

    Being of Scottish descent, I loved the cauldron magic in Brave!

  42. I love the Witches Mirror and I'm sure I will love this one too. My favorite cauldron from fiction is the blender that Aunt Francis and Aunt Jet use to make Midnight Margaritas in Practical Magic! Anything can be a magic cauldron! :)

  43. When I think of fictional cauldron magic the first thing that always comes to mind is the 90’s television show “Sabrina the Teenage witch”. There was this one episode that Sabrina was having trouble with a school teacher and her aunt help with some spells cast around a Cauldron, which in normal comedy fashion the Cauldron gets larger as the issue get worst. There are many great movies and shows that have more serious Cauldron magic but this is what always comes to my mind first when thinking of fictional cauldron magic.

  66. Hi all, Read my testimony! Getting ex back after a breakup. My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call/whatsapp: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  69. It was an amazing day for me two weeks ago today as Bob came back to me. My husband has been away with another women for the past 3 months and he neglected all his responsibilities as i had to pay for bills and the burden was too much for me to carry alone with my 4 year old child. I came in contact with eduduzadsontemtemple on line and i saw reviews of how he helps bring back lost love. It was just 48 hours after he had told me he casted the spell to bring Bob back and it came to pass as i was promised . What ever situation you may find yourself don't give up but contact eduduzadsontemtemple@yahoo.com and get quick results and positivity
