The first thing you need to do, if you really don't want to sell your book, is to sign up for every social networking site on the Internet and, if your book is about Haddock fishing, for example, befriend everyone you can find who reads historical fiction. Once they have accepted your friend requests, email them and post on their profile pages, extolling the virtues of your non-historical non-fiction book about fish. When you prepare your email, make sure that it is as impersonal as possible; never address the recipient by name, make it absolutely clear that you have no idea who they are or what they like, as you didn't read their 'about me' blurb, and don't be afraid to refer to your 'two volumes sold the last time you checked Amazon' tome as a 'worldwide bestseller!'
Next, visit discussion forums and, after having joined six seconds previously, butt in on a thread about book trailers, knocking it totally out of whack, to talk about yourself, your fish-loving exploits, and your book about haddock. When nobody responds to you, take this as an encouraging sign and proceed to post the same information - with no word altered - on every thread on that forum. Do this again one week later. Or, if you're really determined not to sell a single copy of your book, do it every three days.
Please remember to refer to your readers and Internet friends as 'fans.' Do a re-run of the first emailing exercise, but this time thank everyone (again, no names) for supporting your writing efforts by being your devoted followers. Don't treat fellow writers as equals or engage them in intelligent discussion... this might inspire feelings of camaraderie, and that might lead them to purchase a copy of your book. Instead, when one asks a question about the publishing business, pretend that they are butchers and explain what a real writer (one who has sold two books) experiences in the cut-throat world of getting into print.
I absolutely guarantee that, if the advice above is followed to the letter, you will not sell your books. There is one small side effect... you may be murdered in your sleep when you least expect it.
