Lulu.com's New Google Drive App Takes Documents from Collaboration to Published in One-Click
Raleigh, NC [April 25th, 2012] - Lulu.com, the leader in self-publishing, today announced integration between the new Lulu One-Click Publishing app and the newly released Google Drive(TM), Google’s cloud storage and collaboration service. The app will enable anyone with Google Drive to create and collaborate, and then use Lulu.com to publish and share their documents with readers anywhere in the world with just a single click.
“Integrating the Lulu One-Click Publishing app with Google Drive is just another way Lulu is working to remove limitations for creators and making publishing easier than ever before,” says Bob Young, CEO and founder of Lulu.com. “Now people can edit content or collaborate on a project with a friend or colleague, then seamlessly publish it so we can all benefit from their remarkable works. Lulu is excited to work with Google and be part of Google Drive.”
The Lulu One-Click Publishing app lets creators collaborate with anyone on Google Drive, then easily publish content as a PDF eBook that can be sold or converted to a print book on Lulu.com – home to over 2.5 million unique buyers. The app supports multiple file formats including PDF, DOC, DOCX, and TXT and can accept multiple files simultaneously for creators who choose to upload individually saved chapters. Creators keep up to 90% of the profits they set when their works sell and they keep full creative and copyright control. Integrating the app with Google Drive ensures that anyone will be able to access Lulu.com’s great self-publishing tools right from their Google account - all absolutely free.
Lulu.com is already working on expanded content creation and distribution options for the Lulu One-Click Publishing app to be released later this year that will enable creators to also publish print books and EPUBs directly from Google Drive, as well as sell works through premier retail channels like Amazon.com , iBookstore(SM), and NOOK® Bookstore.

About Google Drive
Google Drive is a cloud storage and collaboration service from Google. Drive allows people to store their files online and access them from any device: in desktop folders on Mac or PC computers, in mobile apps on Android or iOS devices, or from any web browser by visiting drive.google.com. Google Drive is available with 5GB of storage for free, and additional storage may be purchased.
Google Drive also allows people to create, edit and share files with one another. Google Drive applications are third-party applications that work seamlessly with Drive. By integrating with the user account and file data stored in Drive, these web applications provide a simple way for people to open files from Drive, make changes or edits in the application, and then save the updated file in Drive. Google Drive applications are available in the Chrome Web Store.
