Soldiers of the East

Title: Soldiers of the East (and its following novellas)
Genre: ,
Draft: Prewriting
Release Date: To be determined

This one is in the worldbuilding stages. It came about thanks to studying ancient history for school, wanting to write a country run by the military, and a random dream. The continent I'm building - Kersir - is based on Middle Eastern cultures, with two main countries and about four smaller countries. One of those two is run by priests while the other is run by the military, and they really don't like each other. I'm trying to keep to worldbuilding for now so that I don't get myself starting a new story just yet, but it's interesting to work on. It's been mentioned by several of my characters in their interviews because apparently it's a pretty popular book on Themar.
