The Literary Consultancy is excited to be working in association with Staple Magazine on an innovative showcase for its writing talent, both online and live at the Free Word Centre. See TLC Showcase Introduction for more on this and showcase editor Wayne Burrows.

Once a month we will highlight the work of one author whose work we have helped en route to commercial publication, or whose work a reader particularly championed.

We look forward to reading your feedback or comments on our Facebook group page.

I didn't expect [Under Gaslight] to be professionally published. I was going to pay a company to proofread/design the cover cover/upload it to Kindle Direct Publishing etc., but first I contacted TLC ... It’s common sense to send it to someone in the business who knows how to improve it! Under Gaslight is available to download as a Kindle Single here


“Eli wrote every week from the Western Front, until his letters stopped arriving two months ago. His letters dry. His strong handwriting reminds her of his warm presence. Mary’s letters, however, are dotted with tears. Mary nurtures his memory in her heart but his memory lives in her tears. Birds fly overhead. Mary wonders if Eli will see those birds. Mary holds the hope Eli is alive, despite the lack of letters.” Extract from ‘Under Gaslight’—included in the showcase
