The newest entrant into the growing field of building online marketing platforms for authors and self publishers is industry veteran Neil Levin. Most recently senior v-p with National Book Network, Levin has launched EverPub, a new company that will help authors build their own Web pages that will include metadata for a title or titles, author bio, cover images, reviews, and contact information. The site will also include various social networking features such as Twitter and Facebook, and key words for SEO (search engine optimization). EverPub "is a tool for authors to reach more customers," Levin said.

Price for the service is $295 per book for 27 months, although Levin is offering discounts to self publishers who have more than one title. Down the road, Levin said he plans to open the EverPub marketing platform to traditional publishers.
