Meet Our Writers
Editor & SEO Consultant
A writer for a dozen years and an SEO at heart, I’m an avid book lover. I’ve been studying various genres of books for quite some time. This is what encouraged me to take this project on. I work as an editor and SEO consultant on BookVibe.
Among other things, my goal is to polish the blog posts that go live on the website. I am responsible for advising William, Shams, and Riaz on the PR side of things. I reach out and talk to other writers and webmasters about the things we dish out. This helps us in getting authentic publicity and a decent shoutout for Bookvibe when we need some.
Zarin Tasnim is an aspiring researcher and an engineer in the making with a knack for exhibitionism – largely occupied by writing pieces – presumably, an author in the making too. For the past twenty years or so, the alleged author has been navigating her potential – a demographic she usually refuses to consort with – or at best, making peace with her strengths (read shortcomings).
When the earthly-mortal combat feels too heavy on her tiny shoulders, Ms. Tasnim happens to have two tinier shoulders to share it with – her two cats – spreading it to her stray lovers until gravity refuses to exhaust her. She prefers reading to mortal companions – her family has a mixed version of reality on this, till then, up to the reader’s imagination.
Hey there. I am Maliha Afrin, another one of those geeky nerds who replaced her friends with books. What’s better than having books as your friends? Talking about books, of course!
Can you imagine a childhood without defeating the Dark Lord or defying the gods and goddesses of Olympus? Me neither. As a believer in the quote, “Speech has power. Words do not fade. What starts out as a sound, ends in a deed.” by Abraham Joshua Herschel, I chose to use my words to spread the joy of reading books.
If you love books as much as I do, join me on my quest to never let the art of reading books perish.
Hey, I am Maisha, an engineer by chance and a bookworm by choice. You’ve probably heard that quote, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.” If life is giving away immortality for free, why not just take it? So I did. I mean, what could be more fun than switching characters?
One day, you can fight You-know-who with your magic wand, and the next day, you are Sherlock, solving murders. Books have always been my safe place; talking about those pages has never bored me. What do I aspire to be? A storyteller, maybe? Until then, why don’t I put a smile on your face with all those quirky stories I have read so far?
