Hahha. I've been guilty of a couple of those marketing douchebaggery tactics. Thanks for the reminder to create great content!

I do not mean to be crude or nasty but Facebook "likes" do not amount to dog poop in terms of book-sales! This is why FB has lost half its market value since their IPO.
Your books will sell if you have a nice title that is search engine (SEO) friendly along with a super-friendly sub-title - this makes Amazon tick. You can have a nice book trailer on youtube - that may help or have some radio interviews.
Facebook - forget about it.
Would like to make your book look book-store quality?
