Dianna Haught

Book Indexing Expert

I offer quality, professional book indexes and proofreading services to meet your deadline and budget.

Indexes make good books into great books. They function as a map to the book, guiding the readers to where they want to be. Indexes increase marketability of books, as libraries and bookstores won’t shelve non-fiction books without an index. Let me create your index.

Indexing is a unique form of writing which requires a specialist- a person with knowledge not only of indexing itself but of the subject of the book. Authors know their book better than anyone else but are very seldom trained in the rules of indexing. Let me create your index for you.

I have been indexing since 2004 in the fields of history, social studies, Native American studies, psychology, language arts, biographies, fiber arts and crafts, nature studies, English language studies, multicultural education and early childhood education.  I have extensive experience with trade books as well as textbooks and scholarly texts.
