Andrea Hatley, Word Tapestries Inc.


Do you want a job well done, delivered on-time (or before) and at a reasonable price? Add to that hands-on, personal, and prompt service, and you’ve ensured value for the money spent.

I offer back-of-the book indexes for a variety of trade books aimed at non-specialist audiences. With an academic background in publishing, botany, ecology, sociology and aviation, and real-world work experience in both for-profit and not-for-profit (affordable housing/homelessness, zoo) sectors, climate change action plan development/implementation, and wilderness/land-based activities (operating a remote lodge/hunting/fishing camp, professional trapper), the range of subjects I index is rather broad.

Need more than one service? Word Tapestries Inc., using a team-based approach, offers a full range of services including editing, copy-editing, proofreading, fact-checking, and print/digital/ebook layout and design.

Please use the form on the right side of the page to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
