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 Caught

FOR BETA READING

One the the many things I value about Shalini is her honest feedback. Her candid comments make me want to up my game and when she likes something I know she is sincere. As an author getting constructive criticism is a crucial element if you want your writing to evolve. It isn’t the job of a beta reader to do more than state their opinion but she does so much more than that.
Not only did she comment on my story chapter by chapter, pointing out missed spelling mistakes and word repetition, she provided a detailed report I receive from my editor and her feedback really helped deepen my characters and my story. I greatly value how quick she is to respond to e mails and also her ability to meet and exceed deadlines. Count your blessing if you are lucky enough to work with Shalini I know I do. Thank you Shalini.

FOR BETA READING OF LGBTA+ ROMANCE

Shalini’s feedback was honest and constructive and such a great help to me! She said things I needed to hear, which I now know will make my story better when edited. She did such a good job of pointing out both good and bad equally. Her work was thorough and delivered in the promised time. I couldn’t have asked for a better beta reader!
Thank you so much for your honesty Shalini!
