As each book is unique, the cost of drafting an index cannot be automatically determined. Before indexing your book I will provide you with a quote for your book that will take a number of factors into consideration:

  • project size / number of indexable pages

  • discipline / complexity of the material

  • space allotted for index 

  • audience

  • type of index(es)

  • and any unusual considerations. 

I use ​the word count of the text I will be indexing  (bibliography not included) to estimate the cost as you may be searching for an indexer well in advance of when your book will have been copyedited and typeset. 

Rush projects are considered if there is an opening in my schedule. It's best to schedule your index as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.  Many authors book me when they submit their manuscript which is about three months before they need the index.
