Probblehem to go into second edition

Heard that the Probblehem, the first book about our adventures in Bowen Cove, sold out again last week. So rather than another reprint it's going into a second edition with a new spanky bright cover. Still tells the story of how Plug found Sydney the Smuggler in a drawer in his grandparents cottage and met up with us smugglers back in Queen Anne's time.

Smuggling in the Storms

Had some interesting landings last week, what with those storms and everything. Thing is, the Revenue Cutter won't go out in that weather, which means we do. Almost lost The Windycutts down at Mupe Bay. Lot of rocks there and she got blown right in. Bit of damage but we managed to anchor her up. Quite a job getting the cargo off though. Ever tried rowing a boat in a gale and five foot waves? Sometimes wonder why I do it. I don't even drink brandy! Don't want to leave Isabel without a Dad. Or me without a me, come to that. I think it's just the excitement after you've been mending boots all day!
