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.

“Maddy Sparks dashes around London fulfilling ordinary and extraordinary requests for a roster of demanding celebrity clients. A throwaway comment to Casper, a bitchy screen writer she looks after, sees him enlist her help on his failing TV series. She gets a taste of what she could be capable of, but Casper is determined to keep her in the shadows. After a brush with the law, Casper expects Maddy to smooth things over like she always does. Backed into a corner he pressurizes her into compromising her integrity for the recognition she craves. How far is she prepared to go?” From the Introduction


“Babe, its freezing. Can you get my parka? Such a straightforward request means I can turn over, keep dozing. This state of bliss lasts about a minute until I remember Dani is in New York and I’m in Muswell Hill. Getting the parka to her is going to take more than a sprint up the Archway Road. My mind starts whirring, working it backwards: Start with getting hold of the bloody coat, a mental scan of my bijou office for supplies and which courier will get it there by tonight, latest. What is abundantly clear is that I can kiss the rest of this morning goodbye.” From ‘Don’t Make a Scene’ – included in the showcase
