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.

Still keeping busy with Concordia Publishing House!

Between family obligations and ongoing indexing projects for Concordia Publishing House, I've not had much time for updating my business blog lately. My excuse-- I am an indexer and not a writer ;). 

Current jobs that have been keeping me steadily busy for CPH include Concordia Commentary Series: Matthew 11:2-20:34, vol.2   and Luther's Works, vol. 79: Church Postil V . 

I am privileged to work with editors Julene Dumit and Dawn Mirly-Weinstock on these current projects, and I look forward to working with them on future projects.

P.S.--I'll be sure to update my business blog as soon as plans for these future projects are finalized ;).
