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 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 Paradise is Not Forever

Shalini has just completed the beta read on the first book in a series that I am writing. I have nothing but good to say about her work. Thorough and efficient, she provided a full report plus inline notes which were fully justified, explained well and extremely useful. We all know that stage when you really can’t see the wood for the trees in your own creation and having an intelligent and thoughtful reader like Shalini is essential. She is brilliant. Thank you, Shalini.

And on this site

A real gem of a beta reader. Shalini is thorough and detailed, providing a full report and inline notes on the ms. The notes are clear, justified and very helpful. I have been writing for a few years but this current project is the largest I have ever undertaken and Shalini has really helped to clarify my thoughts on the beginning of a really big project.

Budding Author 

Shalini did a great job on the chapters I sent her.

She gave very clear and detailed feedback, both in comments on the text and in a separate document. She also edited a problem section for me, which goes above and beyond the remit of a beta read.

Well worth the money, I will be using her again.
