I thrive on variety and have enjoyed working with many publishers in an enormous variety of disciplines.
Below is a partial list of my clients, illustrating the variety of disciplines and publishers with which I’ve worked.
- Computer and technical manuals
- Microsoft Press has been one of my biggest clients since the mid-1990s. I index books for a wide range of skill levels, from beginning software users to IT professionals. I’ve indexed a number of their books geared toward people working on Microsoft Certifications.
- Peachpit Press has been one of the leading publishers of technology books for decades. I’ve been working with them since the mid-1990s.
- Gateway Software Corporation
- Visio Software, before Microsoft purchased it, was a wonderful Seattle company that I enjoyed working with.
- “And our indexer, Kari Bero, seems to inhale the soul of a book and magically exhale an extensive index.”~ from the Acknowledgements of the At A Glance series for Microsoft Press. (Before 1998 I indexed under the name Kari Bero.)
- Fire Protection Publications is another of my biggest clients. (I’ve learned more about fires and firefighting than I ever thought I’d know. All a part of the fun of doing freelance indexing!)
- Health Sciences
- Sage Publications is one of the best known publishers of scholarly, educational, and professional texts.
- Human Rights
- Kluwer Law International is now part of Wolters Kluwer Law & Business, which publishes in-depth, expert-authored, English language texts mainly about international law and business.
