Hi. I’m Bill Heron. This website is a counterpart to themandragora.com, my RPG “hobby” site as such. For the last few years I’ve been working as a freelance writer, editor, and proofreader for a number of role-playing games (RPGs). Much of my work is freelance although I’m open to long-term contract or permanent work.
I offer a number of services: not only writing, but proofreading and editing as well. I also offer an indexing service along with my proofreading.
Why does your book need an index? Something you’ll constantly hear RPG consumers complain about is a lack of a definitive index in many products, or worse: the infamous “p.XX” reference. As part of the proofing process I can find these after layout (or before) and create an index for you. A rule of thumb is to assume a 3-column index takes 1-side of a page per 100 pages of text. Rather than a text parser output, you’ll get an index tailored to your readership.
If you’ve got a question please ask – I can be flexible on rates or deadlines.
