Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle, iPhone.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?

I believe social network sites (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) are a fantastic tools for marketing, as well as personal websites. As a first-time author, I am finding word-of-mouth among family, friends, and acquaintances is a great way to start. I also utilize my alumni connections from the university.
