I am finishing up a draft of a guide book that explains the controls, operation, and features of an advanced compact camera. The book will be roughly 400 pages long when finished, with about 400 photographs. I estimate there will be slightly less than 100,000 words in the final version. This draft will be ready for proofreading by about September ...

“Working with Jill was my first experience using Elance, and she went beyond my expectations in getting the work done on time and to my complete satisfaction. I was extremely impressed with her responsiveness to all of my questions, both before I selected her and during all stages of the work.
For this project, Jill proofread a 100,000-word camera guide book, which required extremely close attention to detail. She accomplished the work on time and with great thoroughness and quality. She made many improvements to the text in terms of consistency and accuracy, and she followed my directions absolutely.
I think what may have impressed me most about Jill is that she always carefully reads my messages and responds to every point, so I am confident that she fully understands what I am asking or saying, and we are on the same wavelength. I have already selected Jill to work on another phase of the production of the same book, and I am looking forward to additional excellent work.
I don't know if I what I wrote above really got the idea across, but, in a nutshell, it's hard to imagine that you can find another freelancer who is more diligent, reliable, committed, and capable than Jill. ”
