6) Give a book by this author as a gift to a family member, friend, or co-worker. Include a rave review of your own. 

7) Do a video review and post it on YouTube or other video sharing website. 

8) Tell some book club members about the book(s) or organize a group of friends to read and discuss the book(s) together.

10) If you have a website or blog of your own, set up links from your site to your favorite author's site. 

11) Include a feature or interview on your blog about the book(s) or about the author.
