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 TalonFyre Chronicles 

Shalinia is incredibly well-versed in psychological features. She was even able to pinpoint many things I didn’t notice about my own characters. And damn, she reads at the speed of light. Her insight is quite keen as well.
I think I’ll go for Shalini as a beta from now on, and have already hired her for my Alternate Timeline series.

I have recently contacted Dr Shalini G for her betareading services concerning my 80 000 words memoir. I must confess that I did not have great expectations, as I had previous unsatisfactory experiences with other betareaders. I was, however, far from imagining how our work together was to change my preconceived idea.

I found Dr Shalini to be an experienced reader and a versed betareader who grasped well the multiple layered themes and underlying communication. With her honest, detailed feedback, her in depth analysis, her competent and professional advice, she demonstrates a good mastery of the current demands in today’s publishing world.

More often than not we, authors, are suffering from that “blind spot syndrome” that doesn’t allow us to spot fatal weaknesses. Her skilled eye quickly identified the things that work well, but especially the things that aren’t, which, in my opinion as a writer, is crucial to the perfecting of any work. I don’t know how she does it, but, in an unexpected, short amount of time, she did all that, with competence, balance and appropriate distance, providing , at the same time, quality editing for grammar and punctuation, and I am even grateful for her vocabulary nuances that proved to be the solutions needed in that specific context.

Personally, I cannot express well enough my gratitude for her priceless contribution to my work, which, I am convinced, has much better chances to be seriously considered by agents. I am confidently looking forward to writing my next book, knowing that I will ask for her services again, if she will have me.

Thank you, Shalini, for adding so much value to my work!
