"Leslie McKee did it again. Even after a professional edit to slap my novel into shape, she smacked it one more time. And the result? She caught things I'd missed far too many times, smoothed the flow, and fought me on pet expressions that I needed to leave behind once and for all. Leslie works hard to take an individual's writing to the next level."
"Leslie was an absolute joy to work with. She was highly organized, professional, and prompt. She did the difficult detail-oriented work and didn’t cut corners. I also appreciated that she embraced the story and didn’t try to change my voice. She pointed out issues that I’d never recognized before and put me on alert for those in the future. I highly recommend Leslie and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again."
"Leslie does her best to make the painful editing process actually enjoyable. She is a pleasure to work with, and her editing is impeccable. She is both knowledgeable and meticulous. When I asked her for a quick turnaround on my novella, Resounding Silence, she got the work done early, and the quality of the work did not suffer. I couldn't recommend her more!"
"Leslie did a fine job of catching the mistakes in my most recent book. I appreciate Leslie's attention to detail and enjoyed our working relationship, as she was very patient with me and the many questions on my latest project."
"I had a great experience working with Leslie on my MG/YA manuscript True Colors. She was both thorough and encouraging, and I felt my book was in good hands. I felt that she truly cared about the story, and she was as invested as I was in getting the manuscript into the best possible shape. I was grateful not only for her guidance in making the story better, but for her encouragement as well. I was fortunate enough to have that novel hit the best seller's list on Amazon. I hope to work with Leslie on future projects."
"I couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Leslie to come alongside me and edit my freelance work. Leslie confidently and expertly pointed out areas where my manuscripts could move up another notch. She works with me and understands and nurtures my voice. That is hugely important to me. When I need another freelance edit, you’d better believe I’ll be calling on Leslie L. McKee.”
"Leslie is an efficient, professional editor, and she takes her job to heart and cares as much about the story as the author does. She's a gem to work with, and she never misses a deadline. Truly an asset to any author needing an experienced editor."
"Leslie L. McKee is a great editor. She's patient, kind, and even adds personal thoughts about the storyline as she goes. She is very conscientious and careful with her edits, making sure all bases are covered, which helps to get the story in the shape it needs to be for publication. I highly recommend her."
"Leslie L. McKee has been the editor for books from my Ocean Mist series. She is professional, timely, and thorough. She finds things that never occurred to me! (The mark of a good editor!) Working with Leslie has been a great experience. I will definitely use her again, and I highly recommend her."
"Leslie has been proofing my 'stuff' for over a year and does a fantastic job! I have complete confidence my writing looks and sounds great and has been professionally edited."

"I have employed Leslie's editing services on five books to date, to include four fiction novels and one nonfiction novel. One of those books, The Boots My Mother Gave Me, was a Quarter Finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards and later ranked in Kindle's Top 100 Women's Fiction and Coming of Age categories. It is my belief that Leslie's editing and proofreading skills aided my novel in its success. I find Leslie to be professional, organized, and punctual...she can 'turn a book around' in a timely and convenient manner. Leslie is reliable, a self-starter, and has excellent communication skills. She goes above and beyond for her clients. I believe Leslie would be a tremendous asset to your writing endeavors."
