Oh, about the dictionary, Karl: I found the January edition you mentioned. Turns out I had failed to download it from my email. It is now downloaded and filed in my Hebrew folder on my Mac.

Some have used the POD (Print on Demand) publishing mode with Amazon and Lulu for print books, then offer the digital form as free PDFs. Several scholars have done this with Greek and Latin works. Perhaps you might want to look at doing that method.

If you're interested in teaching for free, you can set up a Moodle through moodlecloud.com and advertize on Facebook. Using Zoom, you can record your sessions and keep them on YouTube, for instance. That saves it for posterity. There are constant opportunities for teaching, especially outside of the standard venues.

If you look at the dictionary that I wrote, I have a basic grammar written as an appendix to the word lists. It even includes charts of verb forms, as they appear without points.
I've just sent off an email requesting a copy of your dictionary.

Notice that anything that is heavy with Greek or Hebrew will need to be created as a PDF for Amazon. I would make sure that you're not setting your paper size as A4 or Letter, since text would come out small for viewing. There's an application called Kindle Create that is supposed to help you set up books for uploading to Amazon.com.
