In today's awesome world of technology, it seems that the whole world is literally "at our fingertips" the computer screen being the world and our fingertips being the vector of travel. I have found that Google is quite fascinating in that if you can think of it, Google will offer it. It seems that Google has covered all aspects of internet voyaging from gmail to Google chrome, Google drive, Google blogger, Google reader, Google Cloud, Google music, Google Books, Google Books Partners, Google Play, the list goes on and on.

As an Indie author I found these many avenues to be quite interesting. I enjoy the idea of inter-connecting well basically everything. I was very pleased about Google Books. What pleased me even further was Google Books Partners. Let me talk about the latter.

Google Books Partners is much like Lulu or Create Space, Smashwords or any other self publishing website. But the thing that struck me as gold was the opportunity to upload a book you've written to Google books and have your book featured in the Google search engine. As far as I'm concerned Google has to be the most popular web browser with Bing right behind it. What could make for better overall free advertising?  It costs nothing to upload a book you've written to Google Books through Google partner. All you have to do is sign up for Google Book Partners, which is easy.

In short I'm very excited about everything that Google has to offer. Rock on super savvy internet Queen. You are truly the awesome future of the internet's.
