I could not recommend Heather Pendley more highly. She was extremely competent, very thorough, and uncommonly patient. In addition, she made time for me no matter how inconvenient my request for help.
And amazingly, she was less expensive
than all of her competition.

🚫 I do not edit/index erotica, horror, religious, supernatural, or political material, nor do I review books I have worked on; the possible conflict of interest may weaken the value of the review. To see reviews of books I have read, go here.
Your indexing was superb ... Your turnaround time could not have been better ... Your responsiveness to various questions, iterations, and revisions was especially helpful ... Your thoughtfulness helped the finished product be so better than I had envisioned. I enthusiastically recommend your indexing skills and your fine copyediting work.
