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…

Shalini is an excellent beta reader who helped me with a 55k word novel. She answered all my questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. She re-read parts that didn’t make sense and provided concrete suggestions for improvement, while also commenting on passages that stood out to her. She also found several grammatical errors that had slid by in my manuscript. This has been a huge help to my project and I both appreciate and recommend Shalini’s services. She is fast, kind and helpful. I will definitely contact her again for future projects.

FOR BETA READING 

Shalini did a beta reading for my short story submission and I was just blown away with the level of detail that was put into it. I had some really honest feedback, both positive and negative as well as some really strong pointers that I can work on with making this a really strong piece.

She was so quick with getting the feedback to me and read my short story very quickly and was so responsive. I had thoughts she had when she was reading as well as more thoughts when the story was done. Because of Shalini I know where I was weak on and where I was really strong, and know where I need to work on getting my story up to good quality reading to submit to my competition.

I really look forward to working with Shalini for the second and third draft as needed, as well would love to work with her on future projects. Just the best beta reader I have ever worked with hands down.
