I love tackling a variety of subject matter, and I work on projects across a diverse range of genres and topics, with complexity ranging from professional-level texts, academic and research-based texts or handbooks, technical manuals, all the way to trade, self-help, cookbooks, or even family genealogy records created for personal use. My completed projects list includes approximately 900 published works! 

Why use a professional indexer?

A high-quality index requires a trained professional who can evaluate context, search out ideas, and anticipate how a reader will interact with the text.


"When you must have an index, it’s well worth the investment to go with a professional. The index Deanna Butler compiled has served my self-help book for teens well. And, it was a pleasure to work with Deanna, who eased the process of getting the book to print with her professional manner. Reliable, thorough, on time—I am honored to wholeheartedly endorse Deanna Butler."

"Deanna’s work was completed when she stated, helping tremendously with looming deadlines. She was precise, making sure that ALL the names, locales and events written about were included. Her indexes were so well-done that one local newspaper did a feature story in its July 23, 2015, issue. I highly recommend Deanna for anyone’s indexing needs."
