Why have an index?
 
 

Indexes are for readers who want
quick access to information.
The index is the map to to the book:
the gateway to the authors ideas.

  • Book buyers know that an index provides quick access to the author's ideas and information, and so they prefer to buy books with indexes.

  • Amazon.com's "Look Inside" feature gives potential buyers access to the book's index on-line because they
    know from experience that the index
    is a key factor in book sales.
    Librarians, book reviewers, academics and educators all prefer to buy books
    with indexes. Studies have repeatedly shown that books with quality indexes have increased sales.

  • What is required to write an index?
    Book indexing is frequently under-estimated as it involves meticulously detailed work, long hours of concentration, and an ability to quickly identify key ideas and concepts in text on virtually any subject.

  • Book indexing is more like playing
    the violin: most people get totally stressed out by the complexity of the task; some people learn how to do it reasonably well; but only a few master the art and science of book indexing.

Book Indexing Services

Clive Pyne Book Indexing Services is a freelance book indexing service for back-of-the-book indexes.

The book indexer has written over 400 indexes during the past 9 years, on a wide range of subjects, for academic, reference, and trade non-fiction books, for authors and publishers in 12 countries.

The book indexer writes a concise and thoughtfully structured index to accurately reflect the wealth of ideas found within a book. The index is the map to the book and the gateway to the author's ideas.

The book indexer uses Cindex indexing software, and the Chicago Manual of Style. His indexes have consistent parallel construction; double-posing of relevant index entries, and appropriate cross-references to help readers find information quickly.

The book indexer will write and format the index to your specifications and style guide. As with any well-written document, the index needs to be edited to ensure consistency, clarity, accuracy, and completeness. The book indexer will also flag any typographical errors or inconsistencies that he finds.
