Best Answer
There are a number of books about getting free publicity for your book. A few titles are Plug Your Book! Online Book Marketing for Authors, Book Publicity through Social Networking by Steve Weber; How to Promote Your Book on a Shoestring Budget by Kathryn Darden; and How to Publish, Promote, & Sell Your Own Book by Robert L. Holt.

Each of these books has a load of ideas for marketing and promoting your book.

You have to get some buzz going by offering to speak before groups (for free) or to hold a discussion about your book at the local bookstore.

If you've authored a book, you would do well to build a Web site to promote it and then cross-promote it with other sites.

You can start a chat group or discussion group on Yahoo, too.

There are a lot of low-budget and free things you can do, but in the end you're going to have to have a marketing budget, however small. Marketing your own book is really tough work. You have to be tenacious and there are no guarantees.

FYI, you don't "use" Amazon. There are a variety of outlets for wholesale book distribution and you have to be tied into that system. The best way to sell your book is to create a Web site and then drop ship the copies as they are ordered.
