Lulu Announces a One-Click Publishing App

The self-pub service Lulu got ahead of the pack this week when they announced their new publishing options available via Google Drive.

The Lulu One-Click Publishing App is a Chrome applet that, when tied into your Google Drive and Lulu accounts, lets authors and publishers collaborate on documents in Google Drive and then submit the documents to Lulu for sale and distribution. The app supports multiple file formats including PDF, DOC, DOCX, and TXT and can accept multiple files simultaneously from multiple creators, thus enabling large scale collaborations.

While this app might not have the sophistication of Inkling Habitat, the heavily hyped textbook creation tool, it does offer integration with a tool that many people already use.  What’ more, adding new contributors to projects is probably going to be really easy, given that nearly everyone has a Google account now.
