About Me


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 my blog and social media. I organize book blog tours for authors. I offer being a virtual assistant, mailing and marketing for authors, depending on our mutual understanding. 

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…

  1. Hi Shalini,
    I have written 2 chapters of a Victorian crime story. My main question is would a reader want to continue? And are the characters credible?
    Can you help?

Author of Spoiled Waters

I was very pleased with Shalini’s work. She did a thorough job beta-reading my short story, answering the questions I had sent with the story, rereading certain lines (which were potentially problematic), and suggesting alternatives. It was done in good time and in a professional manner. I would definitely go to her again for my future manuscripts.

I couldn’t be any more pleased with Shalini’s work. She blew me away with her in depth analysis and encouraging, but honest feedback. Without her, I don’t know where my novella would be. She was even quicker than I thought she’d be and impressed me with her thoughtful words and excellent, clean edits.
I highly recommend her!

You’re most welcome, Shalini!
It was a pleasure working with you!
