As a first time author, I too was looking for an illustrator who could help guide me through the self publishing process. In addition, since I have a Christmas book I was looking for someone who would be able to have the book completed in a timely manner. It was the end of May that I contacted Richa. She said she could have the book published by August 20th. I hired her for illustration, layout, and publishing on Createspace and through Ingram Sparks. Well, here it is November 27, and publishing has just been done on Createspace which I finished myself but I am still waiting for the ebook and Ingram Sparks.
I received an email saying that these tasks would be completed the net day and it is now three days later and they are still not done.

I will say that I made a lot of changes but not so many that it cost me three months of additional time. Needless to say, I have lost all my marketing time and cannot even get books in time for signings that I had set up. I was able to get 20 by December 1, and had to pay the priority shipping rate to get them by that date. And how did anyone talk to her on the phone? I never even received a phone number from her and sent her mine several times! Unfortunately, my experience has not been good. I was looking for an illustrator that would capture my vision for my series of books and be patient and understanding throughout the process.
After sending Richa my first story and speaking with her on the phone once, I knew she would be the illustrator to bring my books to life. Thank You Richa for sharing your talent with me and the many readers who will be reading my books.

I have no hesitation in recommending, Richa, in all or any projects. We have used her illustrations in both watercolor and computer-colored drawings. She has a solid knowledge of both art and technology. As an added bonus, we have found her rates to be very competitive. Work is always turned in on time and we make sure pencil sketches are approved before coloring so we have the most flexiiblity. In rare cases, we will ask for a touch-up afterwards in perhaps maybe 1 in 10 drawings. Regards Victor R.

Then I found Richa. We communicated by email and Skype, and it was a pleasure getting to know her as well.

They are unlikely to be unmasked any time soon, she says. Bollywood and other Indian film industries have no appetite for controversy. She raises the recent furore around Padmavati, a film about a legendary Hindu queen whose release was indefinitely postponed after protests and death threats against the cast. It is a non-confrontational industry. It is not a context that breeds solidarity. Actors who call out their harassers must also contend with a culture that still shames victims, and which eyes female stars with awe and reverence, but suspicion too.
