For those of you who don't know, The Colliding Empires is a collection of short stories that take place in Weirth. The known world has been conquered by the Trimak and Grynithian empires, who predominantly hold all their prospective landmasses except for a small isthmus that is known as the Freelands. The two empires meet and fight within the Freelands, chipping away at each other's armies with the people of the Freelands often caught in the middle. The Colliding Empires series will have ten short stories that chronicle a different person's life within this world. The final story in the series will conclude the series with many of the characters making an appearance. As of right now, A STORM OF CHAOS and A CHOSEN PATH are currently available in the Amazon Kindle Store. Work has begun on FRIENDS & FOES, the next story in the series that features Mandaru, a thief in the Acquisitions guild of the capital city of the Grynithian Empire, Holdentara. Stay tuned as the story and series progress!
