Ways of pre-ordering Happiness is Wasted on Me

Just incase you don’t know I have a new book to plug (it’s in the contract that I promote it), then here’s a quick recap:

My first novel for adults is now available for pre-order. You can buy it in lots of places.


I use a lot of bookshops. Waterstones is one of them. Which leads me to…

The new Waterstones app

PreOrder Book from Waterstones App

This is great. Basically, I buy lots of books. Next on my list is Jeff Noon’s new novel Creeping Jenny. I get points for every book I buy and eventually get money off. Really, if you read a lot, you should get the Waterstones App. They are not paying me to tell you this. If they want to pay me, I’m fine with that. My Dr Martens boot fund always needs topping up. This app can be downloaded from any app provider.

The Edinburgh Bookshop

One of my favourite places ever ever ever. I know the staff well and they’ve made me a cuppa whenever I’ve popped by.

Glasgow’s queer bookshop allows you to pre-order your books and that includes this book. Honestly, there’s been a bit of debate amongst my friends about whether or not Asexuality falls on the LGBTQ+ scale. I say yes! It’s always good to support a local bookshop.


They have it too. How exciting!


They’re the easiest to use but take a huge chunk of profit from the book. Remember, I have a Dr Martens boot fund to keep high. Think of that before you pre-order!


Or alternatively, if you don’t want to do it online…just pop along to your local bookseller and order it from them.
