What marketing works for you?

I have noticed many authors reporting their sales and wondered what marketing tools/actions they used.
I know these to be varied, but thought we could swap notes.

What have you done that showed significant interest in your book or an increase in your sales?
Or even what did you do that was a waste of time/money?

For example, was it Book Blogs, discussions, social net working, like Face Book, a paid advert, price promotions...etc.

I really hope some authors will share their experiences, good or bad!

What makes a good children's picture book?

One thing I've learned through writing and selling is, children just seem to love rhyming books.

Out of 6 picture ebooks I have on Amazon, the two rhyming ones outsell the others by around 3 times!
I think really young ones can pick up on the rhythm, and enjoy the musical feel of a rhyming book. 
Put with simple ideas, thet children can easily relate to, and clear colourful illustrations help make a good picture book.
What do you think makes a good picture book?

At last my new ebook for teenagers! 'The Message'

At last, at last, it's ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please have a look at my newest teenage/young adult novel.

The trilogy is called 'The Message', with book 1 called 'Discernment'.

I've had so much fun doing the cover art and the extra pictures and maps inside.
It has character profiles too.

You can see quite a lot on the free sample 'look inside' feature on Amazon.

I'd love to hear what you think of the cover art.
