Where to post first chapters of my books?
I would like to start sharing the first chapters of my books and was wondering if there was a place on here to do that.
There is a creative writing section on this website. However it's very difficult to get readers on this website because each article should be stand alone so it would be very difficult to connect your chapters to each other. This website is directed more toward articles and your creative writing pieces may not become featured making it even harder for readers to find you.
I would strongly recommend writing your book in full and getting it edited. You will find you want to change a lot of stuff in the beginning once you get to the end. It's free to publish through Amazon's createspace (or there's a very small fee. I can't quite remember). You can then sell on Amazon and potentially make money.
If you really want to share chapter by chapter I would recommend the website Wattpad. I know there are other websites specifically for writers to share books piece by piece, I can't remember any others off the top of my head.
Either way you're going to have to do your own marketing to find readers.
Thank you for your reply. I have written my book, I just need to see what the reader's reaction to it is. And what seems to turn them off. I have spoken to the staff here and they have helped me on where to put it, as long as it's not for self-promotion. I don't need to connect the chapters for this. Sometime next week I will post my first one.

I started on Hubpages back in 2010. The biggest lesson I learned here was to create each post as a single, stand alone, magazine style article. I took that lesson and applied it to my own sites. My main website now gets around 350,000 views/month. The problem is, I talk to "bloggers" in...

I just came across hubpages today and joined. I went to post a photograph and saw the tips that personal blog entries and such don't make good hubs. When it comes to personal art and things like writing, poems and short stories is hubpages not a good site for posts like that?Thank you for your...

How well do poems and short stories do on HP?I noticed a while back somewhere that HP staff had mentioned that creative writing such as poems and short stories don't do as well as informational pieces. I'm curious to know about the earnings of some of the people who publish a lot of these. Do you...
