The Literary Consultancy is excited to be working on an innovative showcase for its writing talent, initially in association with Staple Magazine. See TLC Showcase Introduction for more on the inception of the Showcase and please see below for where it is now.

Once a month we will highlight the work of one author whose work we believe deserves a platform, whether simply because our readers felt it worth championing, or whether we have helped the writer on to commercial publication.

If you enjoy reading our Showcase, please feel free to share, and let us know on Facebook or on Twitter.

“I was lucky enough to have my book read by Sam Jordison for The Literary Consultancy. He understood exactly what I was trying to do in it and nudged me towards how I might improve it - while remaining, positive, encouraging and massively helpful throughout. My experience in all my dealings with TLC is that Sam and others haven't just gone the extra mile for me. They have run entire marathons. Without such support, my own journey would have been much, much harder and I remain hugely grateful to them. HOWUL: A Life's Journey was published by Elsewhen Press as an eBook in January 2021 and as a paperback in March 2021.” From the Introduction


“Simple time keep people simple. This, that, be happy, be sad. Take books away, heads have less clutter. Take food away, everyone do as they is ask. Well, not everyone. Not alway. All of next is only what Howul have tell me or write. What is true? What is billy bully? I still have not the foggyrest.” From ‘HOWUL: A Life’s Journey’ – included in the showcase
