Thank you for your interest in getting published by Agbalumo Stories. If you have a story categorised as an African genre fiction, with an engaging narrative and compelling characters, then there’s a good chance you have an Agbalumo story, and we can’t wait to read it. By ‘African genre fiction’, we mean genre fiction that is set anywhere in an African country—this country can be real, like Nigeria, or it can be fictional, like Wakanda—with, at least, one main character who is also African.
