Odyl Launches Facebook Tool For Book Marketing

For authors looking to connect with new readers on Facebook, a company called Odyl has released a new social marketing platform designed for you.

The platform lets you post excerpts from your books, music playlists and trailers among other things. It has a metrics tool, so you can track your readers. There is a poll and quiz tool and there is also a tool to give out promos like books and galleys. It also has a setting to let you import content from other places on the web, like Goodreads reviews Scribd docs, Twitter feeds, as well as YouTube and Flickr pages.
