Full-time, freelance back-of-the-book indexer since 1997, with over 1,100 books indexed. Experienced with using both dedicated indexing software (which automatically takes care of alphabetization and provides error checking) and the Word embedded indexing process. Member of American Society for Indexing. I have worked directly with both authors and publishers to create an index that reflects the content of each book. I create the index by reading and analyzing the entire book, not by using the Search function of Adobe Reader.
Rates available upon request, and vary with density of text per page, size of index requested (number of entries per page), and timelines for completion of index. Authors may be required to pay 50% of the estimated fee in advance.
