For Authors: Post your story promotion as a reply to this thread.
You can get creative, or you can just post the description, image(if available), and your word count. But most importantly your Royal Road fiction link.

Note: This is somewhat of a first-come, first-served basis, as the earlier you reply, the more likely your description will be read first. This is why this thread for self-promotions is monthly based(to not overflow it). At the start of next month, we will have a new thread, and you can promote your story there again.

For Readers: Did you want more lists to find stories from? well... here is another one, give the stories a shot!

You can also use this subforum for fiction promotion https://www.royalroad.com/forums/5689

Cheers~ peolove

My fantasy novel: The Forgotten Universe. Please go ahead and read it, and then send me your feedback. I will try to improve it as much as possible. Your comments and feedback will be appreciated. I want to improve, and this cannot be done without the help of you readers. I know that my writing skills are not the very best, as I am a new author, but will really appreciate it if you read it. Hope you read and enjoy. And remember to read the prologue, which is after 3 chapters. 
Thanks.

I would like to promote my LitRPG hybrid, named The Stained Tower, for those looking for something unique, yet familiar.

This is a story told through the eyes of a forgotten archaic woman as she struggles to learn and understand the mysterious world she finds herself in as well as her own unique monster-esque existence. Everything is made more challenging by her own physical limitations, ignorance, and post-traumatic stress.

How will she manage to eke out a place in such a world before it inevitably crumbles around her?

Seeker of the lost

Fantasy with dark themes, a lot of secrets and a little bit of romance on the side.

Seeker of the lost is a story about Lianne and Amra, childhood friends that had to leave their peaceful life behind and start traveling up north, to find a town hidden in haze. Lianne lost a part of herself, the empty space within her now occupied by something dark. The friends have to find the town and redeem what Lianne is missing before she is entirely lost to the Shadows.

The story is still in its early stages, but if it feels like something you would enjoy reading, give it a go <3

Red awakens with no memory of his past inside a dangerous mine. Previously resigned to his fate, he discovers the power necessary to escape these caves and finally grasp his destiny with his own two hands.


Accompany Red as he grows from a mere slave into a man who will forever change the world around him. Gods, devils, and much worse things await to face him as he struggles to reach the pinnacle of this world.




What to expect from this story:

- Intelligent, determined, and independent MC.

- Detailed worldbuilding involving western and eastern influences.

- Broad but deep, strategy-oriented power system.

- Cultivation mechanics.

- A steadfast focus on the MC's quest; a story enriched by mystery and memorable side characters.






Hey, this is my new story I just started posting yesterday on here. This is my first time writing anything in a story format after many years of reading all kinds of webnovels, so I hope you can hop along as I finally try my hand at it.

I update the novel daily with a new chapter, each one around 2k words on average, so come back every new day and catch the story right at its roots!

Oh hi there. So if you aren't already aware, Heroes of The Collective (formerly The Enhanced Beings Collective) is a character driven superhero web-series following the lives of The Enhanced Beings Collective- heroes who protect the United States against threats to their interests locally, nationally and globally. And galactically...

Featuring an ensemble cast, we explore the trials and tribulations of the 9 team members as they fight against bad, against each other and occasionally against their own inner demons. 

The start of the series introduced us to Kimona Jones, and it was through her and her new alliances' experiences where we learned about enhanced beings and the world they belong to. There are now 27 episodes out and 9 weeks left to go of season one, and a Woodland Warriors spin off announced for after the finale. 

New episodes out Friday evenings BST.

I have two fictions to propose for readers of varying tastes. The first is an alternate history, “muskets and magic” fantasy modeled after traditional literature while incorporating contemporary tropes such as a protagonist who must live a second life, while the second is a dialogue driven, soft sci-fi slice-of-life. Rather than flail about for the right words to describe them myself, I’ll instead provide a few extracts from the kind reviews of fellow authors MichaelSilverV and Jahnes.

Selena's Reign: The Golden Gryphon | Royal Road

When you start reading Selena's Reign: The Golden Gryphon, it quickly feels like you’ve been permitted to look through a window into a real world. At first, you need to catch your bearings – the story starts at the end, in a sense; a possible ending in any case. The reign of a powerful but controversial Emperor is at an end, the nation at the mercy of its rivals, the heir to the throne on his deathbed. But then, a reincarnation, and the story starts afresh – the archetypal hero rises from a humble upbringing with a twist – the neophyte has already lived a life, albeit a short one, and must use what he knows of the history of his own Kingdom to make a difference and change how that history progresses.

Amie, Android | Royal Road

"Amie, Android" is, in its purest form, a story about humanity. The meaning and definition of humanity, and what makes someone human, or a person, for that matter, are central topics in this fiction. Set in a distant, but very familiar 23rd century America, the android Amie's dialogues and interactions with the technophobic Ely Brennan form the bulk of the story so far. Heavy with symbolism and dialogue, this fiction is certainly not your usual RR fare. There are no hot-blooded vows to be found here, no contrived vengeance stories or even whirlwind romances. What remains is, in its own way, a coming of age story of the unusual kind. It is a story about discovery and changes, of personhood, religion and humanity. It is not for everyone, that is certain. But everyone and anyone that would like something more thought-provoking for a change is more than certain to find their fill here.

I'm writing a story about a girl at magic school who gets a dragon! But, she doesn't really want to be a dragon mage, and there was a violent takeover, and chaos threatens, so she's kinda angsty and depressed about the whole thing at the moment until she learns to adapt.

It updates every ten days, since I'm in this for the long haul. I anticipate the saga being somewhere in the 1-3m range and taking most of the decade to complete. Come see an epic fantasy in its infancy. :)

Check out my story, a Fantasy Mystery Adventure tale - Ilhen's Seventh Deathtrap. Blurb below:

A trail of clues... a political conspiracy...

Enzo and Leonardo are renowned adventurers who specialize in Rare & Esoteric Artifact Recovery. With their guild on the brink of bankruptcy, they embark on a quest to locate Ilhen's Seventh — a legendary deathtrap brimming with occult treasures.

But complications abound. Rival adventurers are also on the hunt, and Enzo suspects they're being followed by the Empress' shadowy spy ring, the Black Cabal.

And worse, Ilhen's Seventh is not what it seems. As they race to solve a trail of cryptic clues, they are drawn unknowingly into a sinister conspiracy...

For fans of THE DA VINCI CODE and DUNGEONS & DRAGONS — or fans of attunement spires, bewitched libraries, floating academies, mad dukes, forged art, clever disguises, enchanted swords, eldritch sea monsters, vengeful gods, & much more!

Hi! If you're looking for a Royal Road story that's highly polished, more reminiscent of a traditionally-published novel, check out Nomads of the Sea. It's a complete novel with a discrete beginning, middle, and end. It's 185,000 words of multi-POV, epic fantasy that's comparable in style to something like Joe Abercrombie "First Law" trilogy. The story follows three characters on two different continents and two vastly different cultures. There's warfare, romance, and everything in between. Three chapters are released every week.

Thank you, @Wing !!

Hi all, I humbly invite you to come, read my story. It is an original BL fantasy fiction based on Indian mythology, specifically Hindu mythology.

Short summary:

Golden prince, Surya, kind and brave, bright as the Sun. But a darkness lurked in his dreams, eroding his soul, his fate "unforeseen by the gods, a path converged by the paths of the past, present, and future."

Vidyut, hardened by the cruelties of life, embraced the dark art of Tantra, for which he was both rejected and coveted by the people of the five kingdoms.

Would their love endure the wrath of forces, both good and evil?

Princes, Spells, Gods, Spirits, Heaven, Mythical creatures, Wars, and Reincarnation, and so much more. It is based on Indian mythology, specifically Hindu mythology. But it is an original fantasy and focus is character arcs. It is 57 chapters so far and I post about 3-4 chapters every week.

***It will have LGBT, specifically BL/Gay content. Romance is slow burn.***
