“Paul was responsive, worked with our time-frame and met the deadline. My book ‘Love Me, Feed Me’ is fairly technical, but also for parents and needs to be user-friendly. Paul accomplished what I was looking for. The index is robust and thorough. I was very pleased with the process and the results, and would recommend Paul for any complex indexing task.”
