Social media has been touted as the next big thing in marketing for the last few years. Only natural that it now extends to book promotion as well. Personally, I think it's a great way to connect to a fan base and have a back and forth with them. People will want to support an author more if they feel they've had some input into his decisions.

“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
