I treasure the manuscript assessment which TLC did for my Viking novel RAVEN: Blood Eye back in 2005. Nine pages detailing what my manuscript lacked and how I could improve it, which was worth more to me than any creative writing course. I drank up that precious advice like mead, and just over a year later Transworld signed the RAVEN trilogy. When you’re starting out it’s as though there’s some magic key to the publishing door that others know about, but you don’t. A good agent helps, so too an editor/publisher who can see the value in your work. But it all starts with the manuscript. TLC was my magic key.

My writing journey skyrocketed after I won the TLC Pen Factor Writing Competition in 2019, as it was through this Godsent opportunity that I met my agent. Since then, Aki, Joe and Nelima have been great champions of my upcoming debut Yinka, Where is your huzband? I am so thankful to TLC. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.
