I will publish it! Definitely. Right now I'm also doing research for two novels, the beginning and the sequel, that I think I want to set in Mali or Ghana back when they were at their peaks. I'm not sure if I'll set it in that time or place, or if the protagonist will merely be from there but living elsewhere. It's a fantasy, too. To tide you over, check out Octavia Butler's Wild Seed.
Part of it is set in Africa, about this immortal woman named Anyanwu who can shape shift, and a dangerous man named Doro who can do that and more. It's the first in a series.
How far along are you, Leigh? Are you completing the first draft, or have you reached the revisions yet? I think it's about time those stories (about the Egyptian pantheon, and other pantheons) got told, that Celtic-based fantasy I see so much of gets tiring after awhile.
