4. Advertise your book online with a one-on-one approach by setting up informational and slightly promotional pages on Facebook and Myspace. Make contacts with book clubs, authors, publishers, owners of books stores, etc

5. Join online book clubs, writer’s groups, and community forums. Actively participate in groups that might be interested in your book genre.
