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.

Two years ago; I was at a low ebb. I realised to my dismay that I had to go back to the drawing board and revise my entire approach to writing. After some searching I came across TLC. The report that I received from the reader told me exactly where I was going wrong and what I needed to do. I was more than happy to pay for excellent feedback and advice. The service provided by TLC is invaluable because it can give you an insight into the structural quality of your work. This is what stands TLC apart from other literary consultancies. From the Introduction


Sidra stepped forward and looked out again. She looked around apprehensively. She knew she looked awkward but there was nothing she could do about it. Some of the more experienced operatives known as Uncles had the ability to blend in no matter what the circumstance or surrounding. They could switch from one persona to another the way you would switch channels on a TV set. But there was no way she could do that just yet. Everything she felt was mirrored in her face and when upset she tended to gesticulate like an excitable adolescent. Extract from ‘A Day to Die’ – included in the showcase
