Improve the marketability of your book with an index.

Indexing rates are arrived at in various ways; however, I tend to quote on a per-page basis. This allows for an easier estimation of cost to complete any given project. Other factors taken into consideration when quoting for a job include:

  • The density of the subject matter
  • The complexity of the subject matter
  • The time schedule in which the index is needed
  • Rush jobs will attract higher fees
