Anyone can create an index, right? Not exactly. It is true that anyone with the right software can create a concordance for a book. However, this does not mean that anyone can or should create an index for your publication.

Here's why. A professionally created, custom-made index offers your readers more than a concordance, which is only an alphabetized list of words at the end of a book. The custom-made index is an intuitive map for your readers; it helps readers navigate through your book quickly and efficiently. This is because a professional indexer anticipates the needs of your readers in a way that concordance generating software simply cannot do.

Trust a professional indexer. After reading your book, I can create a custom-made index to your specifications with my professional indexing software. This index will give your book even greater appeal in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace. The casual reader and serious researcher alike will return to your book again and again because it contains meaningful information that is easy to locate in its custom-made index.

Another published index...

Once again, I've been hard at work creating indexes. My latest index is for the book entitled, Mysteries of the Jaguar Shamans of the Northwest Amazon.  It was my pleasure to work with author, Robin M. Wright, through the University of Nebraska Press for this project.  Here is what Robin Wright had to say about my completed index, "GREAT JOB ! EXCELLENT ORGANIZATION, EXCELLENT CROSS-REFERENCING...."

Feel free to contact me with any questions you have regarding this index or any of my other published indexes. I look forward to hearing from you!
