It could be worth your while. For example, my new book Undercover: Operation Julie – The Inside Story will be made available both on Amazon Kindle and Gumroad.
The beauty of Gumroad for both you, the customer, and me as a self-published author is that I can set discounts in Gumroad. I can’t do that in Kindle unless I sign an exclusivity deal with Amazon. I don’t want to do that as it restricts my book sales to the Amazon platform only.
By following me on Gumroad you will be able to take advantage of offers and discounts on my books. What you waiting for? Sign up now! 🙂
I didn’t know what Gumroad was until recently so please permit me to enlighten you if you are also in the dark. Wikipedia has this to say about Gumroad:
Gumroad is a platform that enables creators to sell products directly to consumers. Designer Sahil Lavingia founded the company in 2011 with the intention of making selling as easy as social sharing. The company has received more than $8 million in funding.
Creators of all types, such as authors, comedians, designers, filmmakers, musicians, and software developers, use Gumroad to sell products directly to consumers, mostly digital content like albums, comics, ebooks, films, games, music, or tutorials. Gumroad is built as a plug-and-play product that offers payment processing, file hosting and delivery, marketing and communications tools, and consumption experiences for a diverse array of verticals. Lavingia has stated that his product philosophy is to ask what creators spend their time on making things, and then build features for Gumroad that do those above-mentioned logistics functions for them.
Gumroad’s model is notable for the decentralized nature of its marketplace, placing the product emphasis on the relationship between the creator and consumer, instead of discovery. It is also notable for having a substantially lower fee than other commerce platforms (5% + 25¢).
Now, a word or three about How To Drive Like An idiot In Bacolod (see below). The only three places you can buy the original version are here and on my blog or through Gumroad.
It is deleted from all other catalogs including Amazon. The plan is to rewrite the book entirely and turn it into a kind of Rough Guide to Bacolod. The existing book and the title give an unfair impression of the city, my adopted home.
I intend to redress that imbalance and write about the good things associated with Bacolod, the City of Smiles.
