I would also recommend that you not publish your novel on hubpages. The nature of this website really doesn't compliment a novel. The writers are too busy with their own stuff to read every chapter, and search engine readers would never be able to find it. Plus, with HubPages's idle/featured hub mechanism, many of your less popular hubs would become inactive, making it possible to only find bits and pieces that have no cohesion. If you're interested in self publishing your novel, there are a number of services on the internet that will help you do so, and market it more efficiently than a scattering of hubs. And, if you want to post fiction on HubPages, I recommend doing short stories. However, even with short stories, they tend to receive few comments, views, and become idle quickly. If fiction is your passion, this isn't necessarily the place to explore it.
