Why hire an indexer?
You will, naturally, want an index that is worthy of the book you have spent all those months (years?) crafting. It is possible to do this for yourself - book indexing is not rocket science, but it is probably trickier than you'd think. (An index is not just a list of which words you see on which page!) But, like so many other DIY jobs, if you're inexperienced and don't have the specialised tools for the job, you will take far longer than you expected, possibly cutting corners just to get it done, and you will probably end up being thoroughly fed up with the whole venture. So doesn't it make sense to hire a professional? It will probably cost less than you think - and think of the time you are saving yourself to do other, more enjoyable and productive things.
Why hire me?
I take pride in the quality of the indexes I produce. I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society of Indexers (SI) and was the joint winner of the SI Betty Moys Prize as the 'most promising' newly-qualified indexer, in 2013.
I am reliable, will always deliver on time, and won't give you any nasty surprises with the bill. (See my Rates for details.) I am happy to produce embedded indexes in Word or InDesign.
See my Subjects to check whether I specialise in the right subject area for your book, and About for a bit more about me.

Having worked in academia and being a published author (see About), I have experienced the realities of shifting publication schedules and urgent deadlines, from both sides of the fence. I meet these with good humour, and will be as flexible as I can to accommodate your needs. I am happy to produce embedded indexes in Word and InDesign.
