Pretty much the title, I finished a novel about a year or so ago and have been on and off of motivation to write or really do anything. On top of that, I haven't really been able to find anyone to actually read it and let me know what they think, so I'm planning on publishing my novel for free online somewhere. Whether it's in stars or comments, I think it'd be nice to see what people think about it while I mull over my second novel attempt.


Only problem is...I don't know a good place to publish it.
Can anyone help me out, by chance? :)

There's Wattpad and Inkitt. (I like Wattpad better, though.)

I would still try and find a way to get it published; short stories are one thing, but a novel represents so much time and effort that you're just undercutting yourself offering it up for free.


Unless it's fanfiction, and then that's a different story altogether. :smile:

One thought is to use it for building up your mailing list. You can give it away to folks who sign up for emails from your blog or site. Building your list can be one of the most important things you do for your writing career, as it is vital to building your audience.
