Selling a book is never any easy thing to do.
There are so many other books for parents to purchase it’s not hard for an author’s book to become lost.
Susan, who managed this site, is no stranger to children’s literature. She has published over 20 books and enjoys illustrating them too.
She wanted to add something of great value to her books, so when she published the fourth book in the Astro’s Adventures series, she decided to add special links to webpages.
The only way you could get these links was to find them hidden in the pages of the book.
To add to the mystery and the suspense they were called Spylinks.
Many of the books in the Astro’s Adventures series have them.
When the links are clicked in eBooks or copied from print books, a page opens with special activities and games.
These games are related to the characters in the book and the storyline.
When Alfie decides to order 20 pizzas in Major Dakota’s Ghost the Spylink is a fun game that requires someone to draw the highest pizza in the world.
Neptune’s Trident is set in the ocean and promotes stopping pollution so, many of the activities are based around these themes.
