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 Golden Skies 

I took a leap of faith hiring Shalini to beta read the second book of my trilogy. My traditionally published novel, Golden Skies, debuts June 12th, and I wanted to find absolute quality. I found a diamond.

Shalini delivers extremely detailed feedback – she responds quickly to author inquiries via email and has no problem answering a writer’s endless tirade of questions to be able to fix mistakes (we probably had like 70 emails between the both of us). But what is most striking about Shalini is her willingness to sit down and brainstorm with writers to find solutions to those mistakes.

I feel that Shalini strengthened my book with reinforced concrete. I will definitely be mentioning her in my acknowledgements and hire her for all future projects – her insight is too valuable to ever throw away. This woman is marvelous <3.

Author of Knowledge series

Shalini was a proper god-send.

After anguishing over a series of books that went well beyond my initial estimate she pointed out swathes of prose that had little or no bearing on the plot; she exposed actors that were either unnecessary or too stereotypical and all wrapped up in a very detailed summary.

Shalini is very analytical and above and beyond, the most helpful individual I could have hoped for with beta reading. She caught many things that put my writing in the perspective from any reader when it comes to backstories, plot holes, actor inconsistencies, pace and many more things that had become lost to me as the my writing had taken so long.

I would recommend Shalini to anyone who less than extremely accomplished writers.
