    Can we publish full-length fiction novels (above 200 pages) on hubpages, chapter by chapter?

    Can we publish full-length fiction novels (300+ pgs) of our own creation on hubpages, chapter by chapter?

    Yes, provided that the material has not previously been published elsewhere online. Duplicate content is not allowed. Experience shows, unfortunately, that full-length novels seldom attract many visitors or comments, so you may want to take that into consideration.

    Website Examiner is right; though you can post an original book on HubPages, the chance of it succeeding here is pretty slim. Successful hubs are usually ones that can be found through search engines (usually as an answer to a question). For example, someone is much more likely to find "How to make a garden" when they search for "How do I make a garden" rather than searching for "what are some good books" and getting "vkwok on hubpages". That's just not how the internet works. If you're only looking for feedback from fellow writers then you could try a few samples and solicit comments from hubbers that you respect.

    I don't see why that would be a problem. There is nothing in HubPages TOS that suggests otherwise.

    Go ahead and do it, but make sure that it's not already published online.

    You have to consider how comfortable someone will be reading a full length novel at their computer.  Very hard on the eyes.  Why not publish it thru Amazon Kindle?  It is not hard to do.

    You could do it in theory, but it would be a really bad idea.

    For one thing, it would be very hard for readers to find their way from one chapter to the next.  Although you have your own sub-domain on HP, all our Hubs are mixed up together.  Take a look at a random Hub, and you'll see that related Hubs by other people are featured in the right sidebar, but there are no prominent links to other Hubs by the same author.

    If you must publish a book online, create your own blog and publish it that way.  The blog posts follow one after the other in chronological order, which makes it easy for readers to follow.  But you're unlikely to make any money.
