    Q. How about promoting my book in formats like podcasts, streaming media, or video trailers?

    A. You know how display sites are constantly being reinvented, and never work? Multimedia promos are display site entries you have to sit through.

    Do you go to YouTube to shop for books? You do not. You go to watch funny pet videos and compilations of Russian traffic accidents. Don't expect anyone else to browse for books there.

    A rule of thumb for exotic book promotion schemes: Has it led you to buy a specific book? Has it led anyone you know to buy a specific book? Do your friends or friends-of-friends mention using it to find books? If not, it won't sell your book either.
