I am writing my own science fiction thriller. It is not my first attempt at writing, but, I would like to see if there would be an interest in my work before I try to publish.
Would it be against the rules to spread one story over several hubs, as in chapter being a seperate hub? Or, would I be better of publishing it to my own site? (Still debating on that one.)
I may just go with self publishing, but, I figure this would be a good way for me to develope a fan base. Any comments?
Yes, you can write a chapter per Hub, it's not against any rules.
I'm not sure it's the way to build a fan base, though. You'll get Hubbers reading it, but are external readers going to find it through search engines? It's doubtful, and they won't come looking for sci-fi on HubPages.
Publishing a few chapters would be a good way to get some feedback from other Hubbers, but after that, my advice would be - wait till you can publish the completed work, then set about promoting it through HubPages and other avenues.
Thanks for the responce Marisa. That is kind of what I figured.
Maybe I will just do a summary, and see how that goes.
I have several chapters of the story ready, and could probably quickly achieve 10 hubs with what I have so far. My main worry is someone latching onto it, and claiming it as their own.

For some time (a year or more), I've had an intermittent problem when attempting to place a new Hub into a Group. Simply put, the "Orphan Hubs" button would not show up at all, and the new Hub could not...

I just read an article on the Mythic Scribes forum that was complaining how many new writers want to jump right in and write an epic novel (this IS a sci-fi/fantasy writer's forum) with no experience... suggesting maybe...
