Any Ideas On Book Promotion?

I am a first time author. My book is titled "I was a Mistake." Using social media to get the word out on my book is not easy. I have one really good review in Amazon, but hope to get more people to read my story on my abuse and how it shaped my life. It was written to help others too.
I would greatly appreciate any ideas.

Outside of reviews and social media; I would recommend growing your email list and then starting a virtual book tour with a promotion. Find out exactly what specific demographic you are writing to and then research threads on various online sites what they are interested in and where they are going so you can perhaps go there to speak or simply attend and hand out a business card or small promo item once you have made a significant connection with a potential buyer. Try to also get you around 1,000 copies of your book to give out for free with the promise that you will sign it if they enjoy it for discount of what the retail price is. This to also give reviewers and event organizers for speaking opportunities. Blessings..
