About Me

20180922_172721_0001

My first love has always been BOOKS. I have always been passionate about reading whether it is a journal, text book, or novels. Though I prefer the novels. Thanks to ebooks, my favorite gadgets are my phone, kindle, laptop, and my iPad. 

Now I have started Digital Reads Library for providing various book and author services. 

I started with editing and critiquing non fiction work for my friends 8 years ago. Now, since the past 4 years, I have gone into beta reading and editing fiction and non-fiction for both traditional and self-published authors. Do go through the various testimonials and acknowledgments from budding and published authors. 

I offer various book publicity services on social media. I organize book blog tours for authors and publishers. I offer being a virtual assistant, mailing and marketing for authors, depending on our mutual understanding. I make simple banners and posters for book promotion. Ghostwriting for non English speaking authors. 

I have also started drawing on the request of a couple of authors. I don creative hat sometimes and write personal pieces and poems on my blog. 

So, now…. I am a beta reader, an editor/proofreader, a publicist, a blogger, a reviewer, a writer, an artist, and hopefully a lot more, as I discover my creative side.

It is said the sky is the limit, so now I want to explore my skies and go soaring…

Author of Hidden in Darkness

Shalini did an amazing job beta reading my novel. She was very quick and had it finished in a quarter of the time her website promised. She had a lot of useful ideas that I was able to incorporate into my novel to make it flow better. She supplied me with a detailed document on how she understood the characters, plot, and setting. She was very helpful on showing me which areas needed worked on. I also loved that she also told me when an area worked really well. During and after reviewing my manuscript, she was there to help me. She was very responsive and quick with her replies. I could usually expect to hear from her within minutes if I had a question. She was also willing to go over any additions I added. I will definitely have her look at my next book.

Author of Secret Heir

Shalini is the best reader I have worked with so far.

Her feedback is very detailed and she answered all of my beta reader questions thoroughly. She also provided a chapter by chapter overview which helped me to see the chapter structure from a reader’s POV.

Shalini’s insights and suggestions were on point and resulted in me adding two extra scenes to my book which I now think are absolutely key.

She reads fast (much faster than her quoted turn around time) although she takes the time to get into the story, really getting a feel for the characters. I feel like she is more than just a beta reader. She is a key contributor to my book and I definitely want to work with her again for the remainder of this trilogy and future books.
