I was considering publishing my novel on here a chapter per hub (because the chapters weight in at 1000-5000 words. Has anyone made any adsense from this?
The reason I ask is that I'm probably going to post it anyway, but if there is no possibility of revenue then I will chose to post it without ads.
So, anyone here float on this river yet?
There's always a possibility of revenue. Though the chances are slim.
You may be better off publishing it as through a Print On Demand site such as cafepress.com or similar. Post a couple of sample chapters, and link to the book.
Yoshi, creative writing doesn't earn that well, and I also don't think HubPages would be the place to do it, anyway.
Remember, to earn money, people have to come to your Hub looking for something. If they come to your Hub to read your story, they have no need to click on ads - and the ads may not be that relevant, anyway.
The only way to make money from your book is to get people to buy it, and they're not going to do that if they can get it for free on the internet.
Personally, I would be taking Darkside's advice and publishing with Lulu.com or some other POD publisher. Then post the first chapter here (with a link to the book) and perhaps on other sites, too.
Obviously for this to work, you need a killer first chapter - but then, you need that anyway.
Here we go, www.createspace.com is owned by Amazon.
Check them all out. It would be interesting to see how easy (or hard) it is to get such a book listed in Amazon. I wonder if you could very well get the revenue from the book and a commission on the sale.
If you follow the POD route be sure to keep notes. And then publish a hub on "how to get published"! (27,100 global searches per month, $3.77 estimated average CPC.)
I already wrote the hub ... problem is ... it also takes a very long time and a lot of 'this isn't right for me' messages to get there. I was looking for some quicker exposure on this book and Lulu might be the right place to find some love ... plus they have an Amazon connection. I just kinda forgot about them because I sorta got angry with them when they said they shipped me a book and I signed for it, but I never received it ... and then they sent me a copy of the signature and it was not from anyone who lived here.
Best part ... the shipper showed they were contacted to deliver the book but never picket it up from Lulu. lol! What a zoo!
Just a little hint, on CreateSpace, once your title is listed, you literally lose all control of it. It cannot be removed. Amazon will always keep a listing for it. This is a total pain in the ass if you ever decide to publish the book with another publisher.
I'd go with Lulu.com, where you actually retain control of your book entirely.
I have one short story hub - it gets some views, but has not had a single Adsense click in 5 months. Post fiction if you want it read, not for revenue.

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April...

Okay, I've tried both firefox and google chrome, which usually work with redgage, but for some reason it's not allowing me to post up links to it regarding my current hubs. I don't know why. Has anyone else...

I recently signed up for a TripAdvisor.com account. The thought of using it to promote any of my travel hubs didn't initially occur to me when I signed up. My husband and I like to read reviews of potential travel...

Hi guys, If you have written a book(s) and are selling it on Amazon.com, I would like to know what you think of the process? My sister has self-published a book and is a little overwhelmed about how to sell...
