    I can't post links but it's called The Mu Rhythm Bluff by John Mitchell. Goodreads the site does book giveaways so he's doing one. Another option would be to mass-create goodreads accounts to boost the rank which are easy as they have no captcha but I'm afraid they'll find out when they see a bunch of disposable accounts.

    Plot: Some people are lucky at cards. Others are lucky at love. Drake Dumas is autistic and neither. He's a 49-year-old virgin who loves to play poker and usually loses. He finds out about an experiment involving brain wave training and a revolutionary technique called Transcranial magnetic stimulation in order to help mitigate his autism. Though it does not seem to help his autism, right after the treatment he finds himself a genius at poker, consistently winning and able to read other players due to charged up "mirror neurons", brain cells that intuit the actions and intentions of others, found to be deficient in autistic people. He gets into trouble and so on...

    I also plan to create a facebook event for it soon, so other low-cost suggestions in the meantime will be great.

    You have to be effective on public networking, not just facebook or myspace. And effective. link with other authors and self-published authors and interact socially with them online. Dont' make it always about your guide. People dislike that type of junk.
