“The support and expert advice of the Literary Consultancy was outstanding and kept me writing and revising. The first stage was a report on my initial draft. This showed me I needed to take a Creative Writing Diploma which brought the novel to fruition. Without TLC Talland House would not be finished let alone published! For my second novel Rodin’s Mistress I am again drawing on TLC’s expertise, and again am so impressed by the reports and guidance. The TLC is a jewel in the literary landscape.”
