Hi everyone. Do any of you have time to do an easy proofreading favor for
me? In October, I submitted a book called The Fifth Man (Sequel To Oxygen),
by John Olson and Randall Scott Ingermanson. I try to keep my print books
until they're approved. I borrowed this one though, and I have to give it
back on January 21. Does anyone have time to work on it before I lose access
to the print book?
This should be an easy proofreading job. I've stripped headers, adjusted the
fonts for chapter headings, ran the spellchecker, and read the book
completely. I think the only thing that needs done is reading the book to
see what I might have missed. I'd appreciate any help you can provide. 
The book is a combination of thriller, romance, and realistic science
fiction of what it would be like for four of our astronauts to go on the
first space trip to Mars. The prequel is already on Bookshare. Here's what
the book is about.
The sequel to the award-winning Oxygen. Courage and self-sacrifice have
finally brought the crew of Ares 10 safely to the planet Mars. They
enthusiastically begin the mission they were sent to perform. Though working
under dangerous conditions and experiencing strained relationships, the
astronauts are encouraged by fascinating discoveries that seem to point to
the presence of microscopic life on the planet. But their work is disrupted
when frightening sabotage, like that of the trip to Mars, begins again. Is
the "fifth man" alien or human? In this exciting sequel to Christie-award
winning "Oxygen," high-stakes action, fascinating characters, and exciting
romance will captivate both male and female readers.
