Butler's Book Indexing


My aim is to deliver an accurate, elegant, and detailed index to match the quality of your writing. I have more than five years of indexing experience; clients have said “the index is amazing; we love it”; “the index was excellent and I appreciate the fast turnaround”; “thank you so much for your hard, careful and quick work”. As someone with past professional work as a university instructor and writer, I have a keen eye for key ideas, concepts and structure – skills I bring to indexing. I specialize in academic texts, and am knowledgeable in the fields of African studies, critical race theory, international development, mining and resource extraction, food policy, law, history, gender studies, Canadian studies, Indigenous studies, etc.
