“I had stalked Dola over various writing and reading platforms before I approached her for editing my manuscript. She was extremely patient with me throughout the editing process of my debut novel. She invested extra efforts to understand the soul of the story. Our long discussions about several pertinent plot points helped me make my story better suited for readers. Her suggestions and opinions come from an honest place and she has the incredible capacity to never let pre-conceived notions color her understanding of the writer’s point of view. I would describe Dola as objective, diligent, and open with great technical understanding of her job. Best wishes to her for all her future endeavors. I hope to work with her again.” — Malvika Mishra, Author.
“I had the pleasure of working with Dola and I was very impressed with how she caught even the minute grammatical and structural flaws in the manuscript. She is detailed, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. I look forward to working more with her. More power to Dola and editors like her.” — Varsha Dixit, Author.
“It was a pleasure working with you. I won’t say all-the-way pleasure as you are a very tough nut to crack, though of course in a nice way 🙂 I am a stubborn writer and you are a stubborn editor, but we must have done something right together if Destined’s Amazon ranking is anything to go by. It won the honorable mention in the Pen to Publish contest by Amazon. I must thank you for the selfless nights you stayed awake for me, and not only for one but multiple edits and rounds. Anytime I had a problem (which was plenty of times) you were there for me. I am looking forward to working with you for many more books to come.” — Rubina Ramesh, Author, Founder of The Book Club.
“Dola has the unique talent to understand what exactly is the story you want to tell and help you tell it in your own voice. And she gets into her reader-shoes as easily to make sure the story is gripping and well-told. A total 360-degree approach. Being an editor myself, Dola is one of the very few people whose editorial feedback I trust, and my writing is all the better for it.” — Sonia Rao, Editor, Author, NaNoWriMo ML
“Dola is a genuine person and editor. She has helped me immensely with the manuscript “Yours to Love, Yours to Take”. Then I needed some line editing on my earlier published book “Blind, Certainly is Love” and she was sweet enough to squeeze in a few days to help with it. She has since then edited three more books for me. It is easy to feel comfortable with her and have a heart-to-heart discussion about the book. She quickly gets the pulse of the story and accordingly helps with editing. I really hope we have a long run together.” — Reshma Ranjan, Author.
“Thanks for taking my book on such a short notice and editing it with lightning speed. Your professionalism and detailed comments were highly appreciated. Your lovely nature is rare to find in this Indie world. I’d like to work with you in future too and hope we will soon one day.” — Shaira Chandler, Author.
“I wish to express my sincere gratitude to you for all your expertise and efforts to bring out the best in Happiness ki Khoj. I love your collaborative approach to enhance the content with ease and as effectively as it can be done. You were extremely patient to hand-hold me through the entire process of my debut book and your keen eye to detail has made HKK shape up the way it was expected 🙂 I had a great time working with you on a project most dear to me. Thank you and more power to you and your work.” — Rachana Gupta, Author, Happiness Coach.
“Dola Basu Singh came highly recommended. She was my first and only choice for editing my short story collection. She is meticulous in her work, starting from signing the contract to giving the edits on time. She is very patient. She didn’t shy away when I asked her to look in places where I thought some corrections were necessary. She even formatted the book when I asked so that all I had to do was upload it on KDP. She is very professional when it comes to her work. I am a happy and satisfied client.” — Janaki Nagaraj, Author, Blogger.
“It was a wonderful experience working with Dola and I wish to express my sincere gratitude to her for putting a second pair of eyes through my manuscript ABC Calling. She identified even the minutest errors and structural flaws and shaped the book to a much better level. It was a learning experience for me. Looking forward to work with her again for my next book.” — Vineeth Menon, Author.
