    Creative writers, how much of a novel that you're hoping to publish do you post to get feedback?

    Lora, personally I would not post any part of a novel on hubpages that I was hoping to publish elsewhere. Some hubbers may do, but I would think agents and publishers might be deterred by pre-published work, especially the most reputable ones. I'm not an expert though, and might be wrong, but that's my take on it.

    Thanks for the feedback, Polly! Chapter 3 may be my last post of The MirrorMasters, then, and I'll just focus on short stories and other things here.

    I'm posting all of Expletus and the Great Release. I put out a new chapter every wednesday and friday. It's a great way to prove to publisher's your work will sell, since you can always pull down the content if they're interested. You're protected against plagarism as well.

    I don't see any reason not too. If anything, it's a win-win, since word-of-mouth is the most important driving force of any sale.

    i would check with a few publishers and see what their take is, but posting little pieces of the novel i think the publicity will be a positive move, but not a complete chapter.

    I almost always publish about 25 percent of it. THis offers enough to the reader to give them a feeling on it and you can get some really good feedback.

    None at all. I would prefer instead to request a private critique.
