What Options Are Open?

What avenues are open for a writer like myself, with no backing and no resources, who's pissed off a few important personages, yet who seeks to get word out about his ebooks?

Playing the politely submissive hat-in-hand game like a million others doesn't cut it.

The two elephants in the room are
1.) The Big Six book companies-- themselves owned by megaconglomerates like News Corp-- who have unlimited resources to promote their Approved pets like Egan or Lethem.
2.) The Ivy League/New York buddy system, from where most of the Approved come.

A combination of monopoly and elitism, cronyism and privilege.

The only problem with my noise is that I'm not making enough of it.
