Something a little more on-topic--

I'm looking for a volunteer.

Specifically, I'm looking for somebody who can codeswitch proficiently between American English (Northeastern dialect) and West Indian English. I have a character in Whiskey & Water who has an American mother and a West Indian father, and I would very much like to recruit somebody who is willing to go over a ~650 page manuscript and make a few suggestions as to idiom and infection. I don't do the horrid spelled-out dialect thing, and he doesn't have what you'd call an accent and he doesn't speak patois--more a flavor, generally--so I'm talking word choice and so forth.

I can offer signed first editions of Hammered and Scardown in trade, or, if one is willing to wait until next year, Blood & Iron and Whiskey & Water.
