Jessica MacLeod, Clear Type Solutions


Clear Type Solutions offers indexing, editing, and writing services in a variety of subject areas.  I specialize in back-of-the-book indexing.  The work I provide is clear, thorough, organized, and reflects strong analysis and attention to detail.  I completed indexing training through University of California, Berkeley. I hold an Editing Certificate from Simon Fraser University, and degrees from Queen’s University and the University of Ottawa.

“If you want top-drawer professionalism, dedication, and value brought to your indexing project, then you want none other than Jessica MacLeod at Clear Type Solutions.”  –Robert Stephens (To Make a Killing: Arthur Cutten, the Man Who Ruled the Markets)

“Jessica MacLeod created an index for a book we recently wrote. Her work was timely and efficient. It is an excellent index – detailed, comprehensive, and user-friendly. She provided useful advice and thorough reports on changes. We were especially impressed with the way she engaged with the subject matter of the manuscript. This allowed her to identify issues for our attention, and thereby she added value to the book over and above a fine index.”   — Richard Hinchcliff and Patricia Jasen

“Working with a professional indexer has been an eye opener. The skilled work by Jessica MacLeod has added immeasurably to the value of our book. Ms. MacLeod communicated clearly at every step in the process – it has been a pleasure to work with her.”                   — Allison Hall

“I think what you have done is a very fine job and will suit the book and my intentions for it very nicely. I have checked its accuracy and find it to be consistent in form and balanced in its treatment of the various parts of the book. Thank you very much for your admirable work.”  — Jack Martin
