    I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to struggle through typos and poor grammar. I had proper English, spelling, grammar et. al. beaten into me by nuns for eight years, Someone who is writing professionally should do that as a minimum, and as CG said, you wouldn't have to break the bank with a professional editor. Let the local English teacher take a look and clean up the mess. That would probably improve the work considerably.
    The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.

    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you are stupid, and make bad decisions.

          I loved that Survivors series, i watched it on my Roku, think on Netflix, the other year. The BBC does some great production and series. I also love that it's not a 30 minute show with 12 minutes of show and 18 minutes of commercials. Sad to see they ended the series where they did and it didn't continue.

          Kind of off topic but BBC did a Sherlock series that is really great too.
          I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!

            sounds like you watched the newer revised Survivors series - only a couple of seasons and PCed to death - but still good ...

            the original series (1975) has more episodes/year and lasted like 4-5 seasons - I think alot more realistic overall ...

            weird little BBC series The Last Train - Dr Who meets The Walking Dead - could have been a great long running series with some push ....

                what I like about Lucifer's Hammer more than anything is the character development - great pre-SHTF insight into the novel's main characters and then their survival ....

American. There are three or four books in the series, and they are all quite good. IMHO all of these capture the end of life as we know it.
                  The Home series by A. American is excellent! There are 9 books in the series with #10 in the works.
