Can I write a Hub sharing the first few chapters of my novel or would that be self-promo?
Of course, I would only share the first few and if enough people were interested in more, I would share the rest. Would that be frowned upon in the Hub community?
The hard part is getting someone to publish the book if you upload a large fraction of it online.
Personally, I've put one self-contained chapter online to promote my books "Norn Born" and "Sirat", resulting in some sales.
I've also posted short stories on Hubpages with links to my books for sale, as a "for more by this author".
I am currently writing a romance novel. And I have the first four chapters of it posted here on Hubpages in four separate hubs. I probably won't post anymore of it here, because I would like to get it published, but I would love for anyone to read it.

While I understand that hubbers might occasionally want to share some of their own hubs with their followers, it can be frustrating to see multiple 'old' hubs shared by their owner when looking at the 'feed'. I'd like to suggest that HubPages limits the ability to do this to a certain number...
