Tweet, Post on social networking sites with appropriated sentence and keywords seems to e the best.
Secondly, tell friends to do the same.

I would suggest that you not try to only get attention in such a short time span.

Books and especially e-books have a very long lifespan.  Your book is going to be for sale for days, weeks, months, years.... I would suggest that you need to work on a more long term view for your books.  

With social media you can develop followers. You can work on your website SEO to get more people to find it.

I hope that helps.

I love this comment.

Hello, Rebecca,

I would dearly love to know how to get ANY attention for my books! As a social networker I'd make a good garbage collector. I tend to agree with E Gerds that a long-term strategy is perhaps more useful.

One of the great drawbacks to blogging and the like is that one spends so much time doing it that one's real work - the book - is left un-written, or at least the time to write it become so reduced that it takes so much longer to complete one's work.

If anyone has a solution to this and can share it, you would be doing a great service for us all.

Blogging once a week or two may be just enough to keep readers, if we want or have to give our time on writing books.
Not only on blog but other places where we are a regular member too.

I blog once a week and that too seems to be so much time consuming for me but I must keep my readers on reading at least once a week.

I am networking, locally and on websites like this one - talking with other likeminded people. I have done a selling/signing at a local library and advertised in local bookshops. Word of mouth is great - so talking to as many people as possible and slowly spreading the word. I only have so much control, so dealing with the splash, hoping the ripples will do the rest. x

Have you had a giveaway on Goodreads and/or LibraryThing? You could do a book tour, too. There are many ways including free days.

U may spread the word with bloggers .. send books for reviews.. get interviewed.. organize contests.. send the book as prizes...its gonna help
