Marketing your Books using Social Media

So, you’ve got your book published. You’re proud of your writing or illustration. If your book is traditionally published, you expect the publisher to advertise and market it? If you published it yourself, you expect your audience to find it? No. Your work is not yet completed. You have to advertise, to market, to mingle with your readers. How do you do this?
