I am publishing a novel which educates westerners about Ethiopia's human rights crisis. Former Amnesty International director Jack Healey calls it the most searing account of contemporary evil since Uncle Tom's Cabin." I need an editor to proofread the advanced reader copy for grammar and typos. The 65,000-word manuscript is already clean. Hopefully, there will not be a lot to fix. Experience required. The volunteer must be able to start within a week and work quickly. The deliverable will be a marked-up draft, preferably pdf.

More information about the book is available on www.moneybloodandconscience.com
