What Clients Are Saying:

While repeat business is the best recommendation, it's always nice to hear feedback such as the following:
"You have done a fabulous job on the index. Not only have you picked out important themes, you have also revealed the book's veritable army of names. Thank you for a beautiful job." R.S., Author, 2016
"The index is fantastic. You did a great job culling out the most important themes. It was surreal for me to see my book disembodied but complete in the indexed words." A.L., Author, 2016 
"You're always my first-choice indexer..." A.B., Production Editor, 2015
"Thanks so much for your very careful organization and, especially, your review of the text for content, as well as terminology. Your close reading made all the difference." L.P., Author, 2015 
"In short, I like the index just as it is. I would not add nor delete anything; it is very thorough. In fact, it is an amazing job. Thanks so very much for providing such a well-structured, tailored, and professional index for my book." J.D., Author, 2014
"No changes on the index. I looked at it and decided I do what I do well. You do what you do well. For a novice writer to try to improve on a professional indexer's work would be the height of stupidity. Besides, I like it!" J.C., Author, 2014
"As you may have guessed, you have been my favorite indexer, and I tended to seek  your help first for authors who needed indexers. I knew that I would always get a well-balanced index--enough detail but not too much--that had a logical, consistent construction but did not slavishly follow formulae; and I knew it wouldn't require hours and hours of editing." A.W., Production Editor, upon retirement, 2014
