I have a 159,000 word Historical fiction manuscript that I would like to have edited. It's pretty tight grammatically, would like to have edited for content and readability. The subject of the book covers the Muslim invasion of Syria in the year 634 from a variety of points of view. Lots of fighting, a love story and a crisis of conscience.
