Great news for you Kindle lovers out there. The first three Shirley Link books are now available in one box set!
$2 for 300 pages of adventures!
This boxed set includes:
Shirley Link & The Safe Case
Someone stole thirty thousand dollars, which is bad enough. But the thief also took the one-ton safe that stored the cash! How is that even possible? Shirley and friends need to find out if they want to save their favorite school principal from getting axed.
Shirley Link & The Hot Comic
Someone is after a mint copy of The Avengers #1, worth over $100k. He’s taunting the police with notes about when he’ll pull off the heist. Whoever is behind the notes also wants to pull Shirley into a battle of the brains. Can she outwit a brilliant, determined criminal and save Thor, Hulk and Iron Man from his plot?
Shirley Link & The Treasure Chest
Shirley proves how rewarding it is to get out of the house and explore. During a casual stroll through her town’s sewers (don’t ask) she stumbles on evidence that Shelburne Falls’ underground is hiding something. But what? As she digs deeper she finds evidence that a pirate’s treasure is waiting to be found. Can she work through the clues and unearth the fortune?
Shirley Link & The Party Poopers is here! Well, almost. On August 20th, you can head on over to Amazon and snag Shirley’s FIFTHadventure.
What’s the book about?
Our favorite amateur detective is worried about her friend, Jacob. He’s been acting odd lately. Okay sure, he’s usually odd, but he’s also being unfriendly which isn’t like him at all.
When Shirley and her friends, Wylie and Marie, discover that Jacob’s difficult cousins are in town they begin to see why he’s in such a bad mood. But when police reports start to flood in about missing items, the team suspects something else may be going on in Jacob’s household.
Join Shirley for the most perplexing case of her career as she tries to solve the case of The Party Poopers!
And here’s the cover, by the talented Robin Hoffman!
This post has two goals.
First, GIVEAWAY! You can win a copy of The Camelot Kids softcover by going here.
Second, this contest is being run and fulfilled by Amazon, using their new Amazon Giveaway service. It took about three minutes to set up. Their instructions need to get ironed out a bit, but it’s live (after waiting for an hour).
The cool thing is that you simply buy the item you want to give away and they take care of landing pages and fulfillment. They also made the process a “Click on the box to see if you win!” deal. Those are fun. And, maybe best of all, they allow you to require a Twitter follow to enter the contest.
I’ll let you know how it goes.

We’ll be taking a peek at the characters of The Camelot Kids over the next several weeks. Ian Greenlee is doing a spectacular job of yanking the Fantasy series cast out of their comfortable nests in my head.
Today’s peek is at the main character, Simon.
If you ask Simon Sharp how his parents died, the 14-year-old New Yorker will tell you King Arthur killed them. Obsessed with Camelot, the two scholars perished in a plane crash en route to an archaeological dig in England.
Simon spends two awful years in an orphanage before his uncle surfaces. He offers Simon residence at a creepy mansion in Scotland where every shadow hides a surprise— including a girl, Maille Rose, who flickers in and out of view like a ghost. Maille warns Simon he’s in danger and, oh yes, he’s a descendant of King Arthur’s powerful knight, Lancelot.
That’s Simon’s response too.
But she’s right about the danger. Simon’s life becomes a battle for survival when his teacher is killed in front of him. Accused of murder, Simon escapes into the wilderness…
… where he gets kidnapped by a drunk troll. At this point, Simon’s tired of surprises. Which is too bad because then he’s saved by a 7-foot elderly man claiming to be Merlin. Maille Rose, Merlin’s apprentice, arrives swinging her bat-wand and leads them to a hidden castle. This, she says, is New Camelot.
Packed with surprises, The Camelot Kids is a fresh take on the beloved myth.
Come back for more peeks later this week.
Who’s up next?
