These stories follow the nation of Shandor through its colonial and industrial eras. Unlikely heroes chosen by a living land investigate the supernatural, reconcile cultural divides, and discover their own gifts.
The first book of Ruth Lampi's Blackfeather Chronicles, The Alarna Affair, is now posting on Wattpad! New chapters are going up weekly. Of course you can also read this fantasy adventure story right here on The Five Wits Press's website, but if Wattpad is your reading platform of choice, head on over there and check it out. And if you like it, don't forget to vote.
One of the more unusual Kickstarter rewards Ruth offered for backing The Tembelaka Voyage- book 3 in the Blackfeather Chronicles- was tea she made herself! If you missed the Kickstarter, or even if you didn't but are now out of tea, the Blackfeather Blend is back, and available to everyone! Check out the tea inspired by the Blackfeather books, as well as a whole library of teas invented and mixed by Ruth Lampi, over at The Five Wits .net!
It's the last day (June 24) to support Ruth's Kickstarter! This is the final interior illustration for The Tembelaka Voyage, and is actually a bit of a spoiler. This and four other watercolor paintings are available as rewards to Kickstarter backers. You can also get commissions, and of course this book and the other Blackfeather Chronicles novels.
Only a day and a half left to help fund getting this illustration and others into print!! Another interior illustration by Ruth for The Tembelaka Voyage. This is one of the five watercolor paintings Ruth is offering as backer rewards for her Kickstarter.

If you haven't checked out the Kickstarter yet, you can still donate (until June 24) and get a copy of this book once it's printed, and the previous two as well if you need to catch up.
