"Working with Stephanie took me from just another writer with a self-published book (about relationships) to writing a book that has garnered 4 book awards, a ton of press coverage (even as far away as China and Australia) a unique brand, and much more besides. And I wrote my book in 30 Days."




"Since launching my book two weeks ago, I have received 47 newspaper, radio and magazine reports -  this Wednesday a TV show. YOU HAVE BEEN A GREAT HELP AND SOURCE OF INSPIRATION!"

John J May,




Stephanie Hale is a fantastic literary consultant: not only can she advise on how to improve a manuscript, but her knowledge of the book industry is second to none.  Last year, I had a novel but no idea about how to get it published.  Within weeks of speaking to Stephanie, I was taken on by a top literary agent.  The Oxford Literary Consultancy is the best in the UK - don't go anywhere else."

LOUISE SORAYA BLACK, winner of the Aurora Metro Prize,  



“Having started the year as an unpublished writer with not much more than the germ of an idea for a children's book, I now have a finished book, an agent and at least one interested publisher.  I genuinely could not have got this far without the advice and support I've received.  Oxford Literary Consultancy has a great deal of expertise and knows its business very well, and I'd recommend its services to any new writers who really want to know where they stand."  




“I had my book campaign for 'Broken Oath' yesterday... I am at the top of the chart of book sales marked #1, which means I am now a bestselling author. I am so pleased and over the moon. Thank you for all you have done for me in making this real.”

Dora Martin,




“Well, I have to say, your synopsis has worked wonders. Four literary agents – two of which had previously sent blunt rejections - are now reading the entire manuscript.”





Thank you for all the advice you gave me [especially the changing round the chapters and keeping the "historian" out of the narrative]. I have had an offer of publication from Hales. Once again thank you for being my ‘editor’.





"Kate’s got her first interview tomorrow with BBC news. Also, SKY News to follow and maybe GMTV. Without your help, this would have been much harder. You’ve been an inspiration. I'm so grateful to you."
