With the release of my new book just around the corner, I have been on the lookout for interesting and unique ways to market my book and to start a buzz. Here is a list of websites that I have stumbled across during my search. Perhaps you, too, can use these tools to your advantage.

Interested in conducting a virtual book tour? This site is awesome! http://www.shindigevents.com/#
Want to start an online raffle to get people excited about your book? http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/instructions-tweetlink/

Market your book through Goodreads. Organize a book giveaway to generate pre-launch buzz. http://www.goodreads.com/author/program
Looking to host, or to be featured on, a book tour? This website links authors with bloggers. http://www.blogtour.org/
This new website allows you to easily upload and store files online. Great for sending large files on e-mail. http://www.ge.tt/
