History-inspired epic fantasy with intricate, detailed worldbuilding. I'm talking Hannibal's march on Rome, the rise of Shaka Zulu, Sultana Shajar al-Durr of Egypt, etc.

Look to history and give me some new epics! #mswl

I'm hungry for a fantasy that incorporate American folklore: Appalachian, Mississippi Delta, Gullah, etc. Our stories are rich and vibrant and we don't see enough of them in the speculative space. #mswl

I started watching The Rise of Phoenixes last night and I'm in love, which means I now want a intricate political fantasy with siblings vying for dominace, revenge, false smiles, and a love burdened by past decisions. #mswl

I think this is my final one of the day, so... black women writing ADULT fantasy and science fiction. I know y'all are out there. #mswl

Unusual fantasy creatures (trolls, orcs, goblins, etc.) as the MC in an adventure fantasy. Let humans sit on the sidelines for a bit. #mswl.

Secondary world fantasy in an urban setting. I love books like CITY OF STAIRS and THREE PARTS DEAD. #mswl
