I started out with KDP in 2019, making some low-content products to be printed on demand as paperbacks. You can see the revenue earned in the charts to the right.
I tried Amazon and Facebook advertising at one point, but advertising spend and I are still not good buddies, so that did not last but a few weeks and was years aog. I am more than willing to let this one grow organically and by making more content. Time is on my side.
Weekly planner notebooks, published under W. Rose Gray. I sold one to myself to send to my mother (Hi Mom!), and one other sold. I redid them for 2020 and sold three. After that, I discontinued them. Reformatting each year was rather a pain, even though it only had to be done once a year, so I have elected to stick with evergreen content.
Ceramics trackers, published under Pigasus.Studio. I created these as “things I wished I’d had when in ceramics courses.” There’s a testing tracker, a glaze recipe tracker, and a kiln maintenance tracker. They’ve been selling; not in great quantity yet the trickle continues each year.
.Gridder notebooks, published under W. Rose Gray. These are so low-content as to be almost no-content. They have a dot-grid pattern on the pages. That is all. The grid is there to help guide in drawing, tabling, journaling, and most anything the owner’s heart desires. I made these in response to seeing similar things in art stores and, quite frankly, being aghast at the $40-$50+ up price tags on them. They haven’t sold, yet. I’m keeping them live because, well, you just never know.

Habi-Tracker notebooks, published under W. Rose Gray. Simple “what I want to do,” “what I did,” and “how do I feel about it” trackers. I created three versions: 30-day, 60-day, and 90-day. They haven’t sold any copies. I have archived down for now, but only because I need to change their cover art. Then I’ll republish.
