Should you index your own book? Or hire an indexer?

Frequently Asked Questions

Remember, it’s ok to ask for help. I really mean that.

Do you know the ins and outs of indexing conventions and how to adhere to the indexing specifications of your press? Do you have the time to figure all this out and write the index?

You don’t want your index to detract from your book’s credibility. And if you write the index by yourself, it just might, in spite of your best intentions.

I respect that you know your book best. I can either work closely with you to ensure that the index I create is a convenient representation of your book’s concepts. Or I can help you navigate the indexing process as an indexing consultant and indexing editor—your choice.

I’m here to help.
