I've got a mention in The Bookseller! So excited that my short story will feature in this forthcoming anthology from Everything With Words alongside some of my all-time writing heroes!
Indie Everything With Words expands into adult books
Indie children's publisher Everything With Words is expanding into adult books this year with three new titles.
The press, set up in 2013 by Mikka Haugaard to bring authors into schools, said it was encouraged to make the move after releasing its first novel for adults last year, Inside the Beautiful Inside by Emily Bullock, which won praise from the Sunday Times and Observer.
Among the new books is The Tiny Gestures of Small Flowers by Emily Critchley, released on 15th July, billed as a navigation of family, toxic relationships, coercive control and independence. “Gripping" magical realist story Circles a Clover by Michael Egan follows on 26th August.
On 2nd September, Everything With Words will publish Same Same but Different with an introduction by Amanda Craig, a story anthology themed around solitude including tales by A L Kennedy, Stephen Thompson, Alison Moore, Amanda Huggins and Helen Simpson.
Haugaard, founder and publisher, said: “I enjoy being involved in the wonderful and crazy world of children’s fiction— lots of talent there— but my passion is for adult literary fiction with all its variety, from the restrained to the passionately outspoken. I am particularly drawn to those who know how to blend the lyrical with the vernacular and take the reader by surprise.”
