Higher Loyalty, A (Comey)

Originally posted on Jen Weers Indexing:
I just had to take a look at A Higher Loyalty’s index. A politically important and newsworthy book like Comey’s makes my imagination go wild. Who indexed it? What was that process like? I kinda even want the indexer’s autograph. I did the same thing when Hillary’s book came…

Multi-authored book indexes

Potomac Indexing blog from 12 April 2018 has a great article on working with multi-authored books.  I do a lot of those and the post really puts it together well.  Thanks, Meghan Brawley.

In memory of David K. Ream

The group (The Friends of David Ream) has established a scholarship aid for new indexers to attend an indexing conference. Details of the scholarship can be found at DReam to Index.

Indexers Rock!

Twitter chat on e-books

Even though I’m a real novice with Twitter, the chat session on e-books ( #eprdctn ) was really good. I came away with lots of links to learn more about embedded indexing. I hope there will be more of these.

Remembering David K. Ream

David Ream’s family have established a Tribute wall with information on services and remembrances.

Dave was an active and valued member of ASI. Most recently, he played an instrumental role in the selection of his beloved…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you all a day of good food, wine or other spirits, and friends for good conversation.

Crash, refresh, and resume. . .

I love what I do. Even when dealing with deadlines. Even looming deadlines. But that still doesn’t stop me needing a “crash” day after I meet a tight deadline. Since I had a very long workday, this crash day was mostly doing nothing–also known as quality time with the cat, or maybe even getting into…

Dealing with deadlines…..

Deadlines are inescapable when you work in publishing and related areas–like indexing. I read Meghan Brawley’s blog post from Potomac Indexing on Tips for Focusing on a Tight Deadline.  There’s some good information that does, indeed, help focus.
