1. Twitter, Tweet and Facebook. Put your name out there and do what you can to make sure it keeps popping up in a positive way.

2. Your Website - make it appealing and provide valuable information to your visitors. Most importantly, make it easy for people to buy your book no matter what page they are on. In other words, have a 'buy this book now' button on every page!

3. - leverage this site by commenting on and reviewing other like-minded books. Make sure your comments are positive and thoughtful - customers who read your words in a review of another author's book will start looking for your book, too!

4. Blog to make a personal and emotional connection with your audience.

5. Promote your book to the important influencers - the book reviewers - through The Critic's Bookshelf, and to librarians and bookstores through the monthly Review Direct newsletter.
