About the book

Set in the fantasy world of Athennia, “Empires Rising” is a setting about
two new empires: the Commonwealth of Atalansia and the Grydorlan Empire.
Both are beginning to take root and expand, and making a mad grab for
territory, consuming smaller nations within reach and waging war on their
neighbours. In the middle, a group of terrified nations have decided to
band together to form The Alliance, a loose confederacy whose sole aim is
to make a stand against the ambitions of these two empires.

Yes, Lulu first then DriveThru 2nd (they have a longer approval process)

Also I will have copies at Continuum for sale, and you should be able to get them directly from me within the next couple of weeks.

Lulu are having an 18% off sale on until Friday 13 (see the coupon on the home page). If I get the proof I’ve just ordered before then and all is good I will make ER live and folk can get the discount. I’ve just done a big order for my Continuum stock and it paid for the postage 🙂
