Seth Dickinson, author of The Traitor Baru Coromant (Tor 2015)



“Maya Chhabra worked as a subject-matter expert beta-reader for my most recent novel, focusing on issues around ethnicity and immigrant experiences, as well as other subjects within her competence such as musical performance. Her feedback was direct, honest, and immensely helpful. She had no hesitation about pointing out questionable or problematic language, yet always with the aim of improving the underlying story. I would be delighted to work with her again.”

Heather Rose Jones, author of Mother of Souls (Bella Books 2016)


brilliant death cover“I was clamoring to work with Maya as soon as we connected. Her amazing eye caught an important change to my novel–without even having read it yet! When I got her the manuscript on a tight publisher’s deadline, she was lightning-fast and yet thorough with her read for Italian linguistic and cultural details. Having a back-and-forth conversation with her has been fun, informative, and definitely improved the finished book!”

Amy Rose Capetta, author of The Brilliant Death (Viking, 2018)
