What do I need to know about promoting my small online business using Google AdWords?

My copy editing business started off as just a casual, intermittent thing I did for friends -- friends who happened to be traditionally-published authors who were branching into self-publishing. Now it's reached a point where books I'm editing are getting onto the NYTimes bestseller list, and so I'm trying to take advantage of that to attract more clients. I've got a website, a FB site and twitter. My writer friends are spreading the word to their writer friends. I'm going big on a "back to school special" next week, and...what's this about Google AdWords?
I got a $100 AdWords credit from Weebly for building my website there, and another $100 from Google itself (for signing up for site analytics, I think). But I know next to nothing about what I should be doing, best practices, what to avoid, etc.
If it matters, my niche is copy editing and light developmental editing for romance, erotica and new adult fiction.
