“AE has been my go-to gal for manuscript critiques for years. Her feedback has been invaluable to my growth as an author, and as my proofreader she regularly catches things that multiple editors have missed.”

“Over the past three years, AE McKenna has critiqued three of my novels. Her input on character and plot development, pacing, and emotion have been instrumental in my growth as a writer. She’s always thorough, honest, and polite in her feedback and respects my writer’s voice.”
