I meant to post this before the following one. I want to make sure you see my new link under Tilden Editing Services and Most Visited. The link is BookRix; read free books online. I have written and “published” four “books” here; two complete, two still not finished. Please read them, rate them, and make your comments.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
While you’re there consider joining those of us who are members of the group.

What you’ll see posted on this page will be directly related to my business, Tilden Editing Services. I started this business to help defray any unforseen cost shortfall related to my retirement July 18, this year.
I have 30+ year doing proofreading and editing beginning in high school, continuing through college, and even up to this day.
I have already begun proofreading a children’s multi-volume novel, and also a personal memoir. I am also in negotiation with a colleague on LinkedIn to proofread her upcoming novel.
All that being said, I am still very interested in expanding my client base. If this is a service you – or someone you know – could use contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also read my professional resume at http://www.linkedin.com/in/tildenediting.
This is my very first try at blogging, and it probably shows. I hope to be able to make more favorable and intimate connections in this kind of format.
I have over 35 years experience in proofreading and editing and I hope to be able to make a little money at it after I retire in July. (Five months can be a very long time!)
I have been married to my wife, MaryJane, for 30 years and we have two grandsons, and a daughter-in-law. Our son took his own life this past June. One never gets over that. They are currently living in Bothell, Washington.
I have been involved in teaching, acting, theatre directing, writing and playwrighting. I was a pastor in a very small church in south-central Idaho for 13 very long months.
We now live in Vallejo, California – east of the San Francisco Bay area, and about a mile to “the Gateway to Napa wine country.
