Annoying Friends, Neighbors and Absolute Strangers

I have a book coming out. In 2 weeks and three days my first novel/ebook will be released to an uncaring and unconcerned public. I'd like it to sell because I'd like people to read it and honestly, a few extra Benjamins are always appreciated in my household but I don't want to be one of those annoying Facebook/Twitter writers who acts as though the world should stop because I gots a book to sell.

So what does a writer do?

We can offer a release day give-away. We can... um, sacrifice a goat to the writing Gods for good fortune. And uh...

What have people done to get the word out but not annoy others? I want to have some fun with this truly and give away some copies as well as generate a little interest.

Ideas needed. The crazier the better.

  1. Crazy is my middle name...

    How about people create an 'ad' or poster type thing (doesn't have to huge or obtrusive) to place on their fb or other sites (if htey want of course) or something that will have people want to click on it, and have it link to your story.

    Sorry, that's all I got - it's after midnight, it's still steaming hot and I'm fresh out of ideas lol

    Let me sleep on it...
