FYI: Only the fiction books will be in paperback version. All my guides will be available only in ebook format
I sell my books on Amazon because it has the largest market for books, be it paperbacks or ebooks. And its Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) service works very well and provides self-published authors like myself not only a large platform to sell my works but an easy way to do so.
Recently, I chose Gumroad to sell my guides because that platform is more suited to products in the self-help/how-to guides. While Amazon has those categories too, I feel my guides can be found easier through a site like Gumroad which is dedicated to helping independent creators find and build an audience.
I am currently writing nothing. Due to selling my house and moving back to my hometown to help out family I haven’t had the motivation to write. And I’m currently working a day-job for some cash (and to have a W2 job so I can buy a new house). Thus, I don’t have as much free time as I did last year. Until I get everything settled I’m taking a break from creative writing. I will continue to write blog posts but I will not write anything else.
