  • Quality
    Olakunbi Korostensky, ND, Author
    "Rose is an excellent proofreader and indexer who has provided my book with the final polish it needed. I greatly recommend her to anyone who wants a wonderfully heart-based and to-the-point proofreader. She has an openness which goes beyond the basics of simply doing the job. I love her naturalness and direct ways. In the past weeks of working with her, she made me realize beyond all doubts that my book is truly needed out there. I suggest you take a look at her services and see how truly supportive she can be."
  • Clarity
    'o-Dzin Tridral, Publisher, Aro Books Worldwide
    "A skilled indexer is able to understand the purpose of a book and draw together the main themes of the writing in order to create an index that provides access to the heart of the material. In working with Rose it was immediately evident to us that she not only had the perspicacity and skill to find the common themes and ideas but also truly understood the author's intent in writing the book. As a result, we have an index which provides the reader with a clear guide to the main topics of the book and enhances their experience and understanding."
  • Dependable
    Chris Smith, Author
    "Rose did an absolutely outstanding job on indexing my book, 'Securing Your Financial Future.' The project required versatility, as the book features some fairly technical content mixed in with pure narrative. It also required productivity, as the manuscript was about 130K words, 330 pages, and had a short deadline. From start to finish Rose was responsive, professional, diligent, and utterly dependable. But she did more than just the pure indexing task—she offered suggestions, she helped me better understand the perspective of a typical reader, and she was always available to to offer pros and cons of various indexing options. I put a lot of work into the manuscript and wanted it to have a high quality index—thanks to Rose, now it does! I can't recommend Rose more highly—if you get Rose to index your work you're getting the rock star of indexers!"
