    Where can I share my novel, one chapter at a time?

    My boss was telling me about his daughters, and how they write and post their chapters of the novels on which they are working, on a website. They follow other authors which do the same, and are currently engaged in reading a few novels this way.
    Has any one else come across this or know what it is my boss is talking about? He couldn't remember what it was called, but I'm quite intrigued.

    Check out the Amazon Kindle website....there is a place where you can create and publish your books online.

    I'm pretty sure you can do this on www.fictionpress.com. It is the equivalent of fanfiction.net, where you can upload fanfiction chapter by chapter. On fictionpress, you can upload original work - it is unpaid though, whereas on Amazon, though you upload the novel all at once, you can make money.

      I used fanfiction (a VERY long time ago) and fictionpress is set up in the same way. It's very easy to use.

    You can also try TextNovel:


    I only tried it several times, but from what I understand, it's quite easy to use and manage your stories (which can also be posted one chapter at a time), and you can also enroll into various contests, if you fit the rules set on them.

    Otherwise, as far as I know, you can post original work at Archive of Our Own, too:


    Although, unless the terms of use changed, it may take a while to be able to set an account on Archive; I remember that I had to wait for several months, before I got the invite from the system, so I could join. But if you know someone who already uses AO, and has some free invites, you can ask them to send one to you, so you wouldn't have to wait.

    Amazon Kindle has a scheme at the moment on KDP 'Matchbook' whereby if you price your book at half the regular cost your Kindle book will be on a promotion. I've got my - so far - three titles on Amazon KDP.
    Upload your book after deciding on your cover image and which categories you want your book to come under, the title of your book and authorisation (i.e., are you the sole contributor and do you own the rights to your book. That applies more to those who've already published in printed book format - then again if you're the sole author the royalties are all yours).
    Set your global royalties and such after uploading your book, as well as setting the price of your work. You'll soon get the hang of it. Every time you finish your work you can 'go to press', so to speak.
    I usually get my books in hard format before uploading. Some folk prefer turning pages physically and you can autograph your book for them.

    You can try sites like YouWriteOn.com and Authors Den where you can create a novel blog adding a chapter at a time.
    For info, in the early days of printing, this is how Dickens and other early writers started. A chapter would be printed and sold on subscription. The subscriptions financed printing the next chapter. If not enough subscriptions the story was dropped.
