Amber DeDerick - Editor

Port Angeles, WA, United States

I compose thoughtful indexes that meet user needs using author language to create pragmatic access points.

Overview

Rates vary and are charged per indexable page. Factors influencing rate include:
• complexity of text
• density of text
• desired depth of indexing/index density
• space available for index
• intended audience
• turnaround time
• indexable material (front/back matter, illustrations, footnotes, etc.)
The most effective way to contract with a freelance indexer is to provide a sample chapter from the middle of the book. I work from final page proofs of manuscripts in pdf format deliverable via email or ftp.
I use Macrex indexing software to meet your specifications, whatever they may be. If you don’t have a style guide, I can help you make decisions about formatting such as alphabetization (letter by letter or word by word,) indented or run-in, capitalization, punctuation, cross reference placement, and locator style (in full or conflated.)
My calendar currently offers some availability. Contact me today to discuss your project.

Filled with the Spirit: Sexuality, Gender, and Radical Inclusivity in a Black Pentecostal Church Coalition

Ellen Lewin

In 2001, a collection of open and affirming churches with predominantly African American membership and a Pentecostal style of worship formed a radically new coalition. The group, known now as the Fellowship of Affirming Ministries or TFAM, has at its core the idea of “radical inclusivity”: the powerful assertion that everyone, no matter how seemingly flawed or corrupted, has holiness within. ... read more
