Indexing projects about cynicism and the ocean

7 March 2024

Right now, I’m working on two books – one on cynicism and one on the deep blue ocean.  Sometimes topics between two book will co-mingle, but I don’t think that will be the case with these two!

March is turning out to be the month of trade books. I have to say, I’m enjoying the shift from graduate-level textbooks to lighter subjects. In December, January, and February, I did very little trade book indexing.

However, this doesn’t mean that indexing trade books will necessarily be less challenging. Length limits and book structure often make analysis and indexing of concepts more difficult than the highly structured layout of textbooks with chapter headings and subheadings.
