Representative titles

My work in the editorial aspects of book producing and publishing has encompassed everything from start (concept development) to finish (index compilation), and many projects have included just about every element entailed. Some even included design and/or layout, which points to my fascination and capabilities with whole-book development.

The following list of titles, arranged alphabetically by author, represents roughly 15 to 20 percent of the books on which I have worked. For each, the nature of my contribution [in brackets] follows the publication data (see key to abbreviations below).
