Buying the Books

How NOT to Build a Boat, A Family Outing in the Atlantic, and Two Gulls and a Girl can be ordered via us – and if you buy the books through us rather than from a bookshop such as Amazon, we make more money without it costing you any more. (In fact, since some bookshops seem to be charging more than the RRP, it could easily cost you less to buy the books from us!)

To order copies please send us a message using our contact form. Be sure to include your name, address, and phone number. We will send you a PayPal invoice by email, and when we receive the payment we will tell the publisher to send the books out.

If you buy directly from us, prices will be as follows :

How NOT to Build a Boat £19.99 €22.99 $24.99
A Family Outing in the Atlantic £16.99 €19.99 $20.99
Two Gulls and a Girl £12.99 €14.99 $15.99

Delivery costs vary slightly according to the destination country and which book you order (How NOT to Build a Boat and A Family Outing are considerably heavier than Two Gulls and a Girl), but within the UK and Europe it will be about £3—£5 for a single book, and slightly more for two.

After we have processed your order the wheels will be set in motion and the book should arrive within 7 working days in the UK, or 10 working days in the rest of Europe.

(Alternatively, if you don’t mind paying an additional 60p per book, it is possible to expedite the order, reducing these times by three days.)

You can pay in any currency, using PayPal or Google Wallet. (We prefer pounds sterling, as PayPal and Google charge us a bigger commission on other currencies.)
