Jack Turner – Editor

Specialist indexer. Experienced, professional, affordable and quality-oriented. Let's discuss your project!


Hi, I'm Jack...

I've been a freelance indexer since 2018. I am open to a wide variety of subjects, with particular specialisms in the arts, history and biography. My aim is to produce reader-friendly indexes to you meet your requirements - from concise name indexes to comprehensive subject indexes.

Once I receive your manuscript I will read it meticulously, creating a detailed, thorough, and most importantly, useful index. I will also include, free of charge, an errata sheet listing any typos or errors that I notice while reading. Another pair of eyes is never a bad thing!

My fees are based on the Society of Indexers’ recommended rates, but don’t worry if you are on a fixed budget, get in touch and we can discuss a good price; I always look to adapt to the needs and requirements of my clients.

I produce traditional back-of-the-book indexes (from PDF proofs) as well as embedded indexes (from Microsoft Word files).

I will bring professionalism, efficiency and enthusiasm to our collaboration. I enjoy working with an author or publisher to produce an index that is right for them, and right for the reader. I love my job and nothing brings me more satisfaction than a quality index delivered on or ahead of schedule.

I look forward to discussing your project!

Jack was responsive, efficient and professional in all my dealings with him. He created an excellent index and identified errata beyond the scope of his job, at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend him for your consideration.

Highly recommended. Couldn't find a more attentive and professional person to work with. The index was perfect. Thanks!
