Preorder Giveaway

Preorders really help books to succeed! They also help bookstores to know what books to order and carry in stock.

As our way of thanking you for ordering a copy of How to Build a Human before it hits the shelves, Souvenir Press and I have some special rewards for you!

A family activity pack full of exciting experiments to try on with your kids

A bonus episode of NonFicPod

A signed bookplate

Simply buy from the bookseller of your choice, then email your receipt to before July 1st 2021. It’s as simple as that. The book is already available on Amazon but if I could suggest some alternatives..?

  • Find your local bookshop here. Bricks and mortar bookshops are more than just retailers. They offer reading, community, and a chance to discover something new!
  • Buy at Bookshop.Org here (affiliate link) which offers all the convenience of online shopping but also helps to support local bookshops.
  • You can also preorder at Foyles and Waterstones

The activity pack and podcast will come via email, but if you’d like a signed bookplate you’ll also need to send me your mailing address. In the activity pack you’ll find lots of fun, simple, fascinating things you can try as a family. I’ve chosen the best research-backed experiments and exercises that will help spark creativity and build curiosity and compassion.

The NonFicPod episode includes the bonus segment (Shit I Wish I’d Known) which is usually reserved for the podcast’s patreon backers. In this segment I dive deeper into the process of researching, writing, and parenting.

And if you run a bookshop or library and would like me to appear in person or via Zoom, please let me know! You are heroes and I’ll do anything I can to help you stay afloat in these difficult times…
