What do you think is the best way to really boost new sales?
I mean you see and hear about all sorts;
Cover ads, Reviews, Trailers, Banners, Contest, Myspace/Facebook Ads, blogs, interviews...

but in th long run which of these really produce the best bang?

I think the reality is that first books seldom make a big bang. What really sells books (regardless of size of publisher, or form of publishing) is word of mouth advertising. That takes time. You ahve to build a following, and have people love your work enough that they encourage other people to look at it.

Long term, I think one of the most effective things you can do is give work away. If you can get people to fall in love with your stories, you can get them to maybe pay for them.
