I remember reading the earlier draft a while back, love to see how it has evolved and whether we can make it fit. If you don’t want to make it public then feel free to email it to me directly

I have a translation of Amos for you. Email me for a copy.
I submitted a draft of this translation once upon a time. I have polished it since. It is a literary translation, that is, it aims to be as accurate as possible while giving the tone and flavor of the original. It is not a literal or an idiomatic translation, it is both. And so it has its own tone and diction that do not match other Biblical books exactly. Amos does not sound like Isaiah or Luke. That is deliberate.
Please look it over and see if it fits with the OEB. I would be glad for you to use it but no worries.
