#WednesdayWisdom Google Docs Saved My Sanity #WritersLife #MarketingTip

Happy Hump Day!

Today, I wanted to share something I learned about last week...

Google DOCS!!

While I've been using the sheets for a few years for blog tour sign ups and all other sorts of sign up events in need of spreadsheets, I hadn't browsed any further than what I'd needed. 

Well. Enter some random marketing blog post in my inbox. Google Word Docs? Seriously?!? I jumped over to my Google Drive and what do you know...I could create a Word Doc to share with the world. I did a serious head desk.

Why was I SO thrilled? Because every time I make up a media kit for a new release and email it out, I have to update it a few times. No biggie, but when said doc has already been sent to blitz / tour hosts, I need to RESEND the stinkin' thing to every host. I also have to send out a separate mass email with purchase links once they're available.

Now, while this might not seem so big of a deal for a little old author like me with a half dozen or so releases each year (my alter ego's releases, that is), I also act as the marketing director for Roane Publishing. Yeah. I send out a couple of these suckers a year to say the least.

Also, these docs are accessible to you regardless of being home on your PC or laptop. On vaca and someone needs your media kit ASAP?? Send them the link. Easy peasy. 


How 'bout you? Use Google Docs? Are they new to you?

Check them'll be glad you did.


  1. I learned something new. I've never used them for anything. Thanks for the tip.
