In reply to your question about editing, I do works of fiction for self-published authors.
Have you a list of the various resources you have researched? I would be very interested in looking into some of them. I appreciate all you have typed up and shared, but feel bad that you are just handing over your research to me. Don't get me wrong, I fully appreciate it! Perhaps you could mail me copies of what you have, and I can send a small fee to cover expenses? Also, as I mentioned before, I would be happy to collaborate with you in anyway I can. If you'd like, you can directly email me at leavesofheritage at yahoo dot com.
Thanks so much for the info and help!
