Everything with Words is an independent publisher of literary fiction

Everything with Words publishes literary fiction for children and adults. We began publishing fiction for children in 2017 and literary fiction for adults in 2020. Our books have been picked as books of the year by The Times, Sunday Times, Guardian, FT, Observer, Spectator and Telegraph, and won or been short listed for prestigious prizes.

We only publish fiction. We publish high quality, innovative, engaging fiction for both children and adults. We are open to submission from both agents and authors. We do NOT publish PICTURE BOOKS, children’s books with a strong moral or didactic aim, adult fantasy or crime. We do not publish chapter books for children or children’s books that are less than forty thousand words. We try to respond to every query but we do receive a lot of submissions.

Eve McDonnell

The Chestnut Roaster

October 22nd 2022

Eve comes from Wexford in Ireland. She’s a painter and writer and has a very special way with words, a fine lyrical, painterly touch. She’s a writer who immerses herself in her subject so that the reader feels that they are on an exciting sensory journey through Paris in 1888. ‘Fancy a weekend in Paris without having to leave the sofa? Well, voilà! Although this is not a mini-break with Monoprix and macarons, but a ticket to the dark heart of the belle époque. Rather than the bright City of Lights, expect a magic-realist underground where gifted children are stolen and locked in the airless tunnels that lie beneath. Eve McDonnell’s intriguing story is less of a Time Out guide (although she takes us from one arrondissement to the next), more The Hunchback of Notre-Dame meets Labyrinth’
