Smashwords Interview

What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have an old-style 3G Kindle (with the keyboard) which I bought back in 2011 under the somewhat flimsy justification of aiding in my revision. It's served me well for the past few years, the key advantages being how light it is and the convenience of grabbing the next book in a series. I haven't tried any other device so it's my choice mainly through being the one I was most aware of when deciding to buy an e-reader. However I have been considering getting a paperwhite for some time now.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
So far my sample size for "effective techniques" is rather small, I've only sold a handful of books, although most of them were through the Read and eBook Week promotion at Smashwords. One of those lead to my first customer review for Colossus so I have marked it as a success.

Even monsters fear the dark... Nobody believes young Alice Kenworth when she claims a monster saved her life. To her parents, Colossus is merely the conjuration of a child's over-active imagination. To her, he is a stone giant with great strength and a greater heart. Away from the eyes of others their friendship blossoms, but it cannot remain a secret forever.
