Welcome! That sounds like the kind of story that could do quite well here. Though, because RR takes plagiarism very seriously, you do have to prove you're the same person when cross-posting. Normally adding an author note on the original or putting links in both profiles will be enough. If it fails the initial approval process, I believe the FAQs suggest raising a support ticket, but don't be disheartened if you have to jump through a couple of extra hoops.

Here's my usual copy-paste advice. A lot of it is related to visibility on RR, but there's some other useful things too.
  • Get your fiction link(s) into your signature (when approved). There's an auto generate but also some guides if you want to customise it. Also every forum post has a tick box to click to show it.
  • Visibility in RR is pretty decent, but don't expect lots of readers straight away. Readers here like longer works so the longer you've been posting the more readers you'll pick up.
  • Don't dump any backlog all at once, really you probably don't want to post more than one chapter a day, because that gives you maximium exposure via the latest updates page. But honestly you want a release schedule you can keep up without burning out. Readers like a consistent schedule. So be realistic about how much you can write, it doesn't matter how fast/slow that is, being consistent is most important imo.
  • Readers tend to be pretty quiet as well. So if you're specifically looking for feedback maybe head over to the reviewing subforum to organise some comment swaps.
  • Otherwise just nosey about the forums. Lots of social and writing discussions. Also the recommendations subforum has lots of good reads narrowed by specific tastes. Also there's a subforum within it for self promo.
  • Here's Gej's handy guide to RR's rep system. https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/109297
I hope you enjoy RR and your fiction finds an audience.

Welcome to Royal Road. I'll second Cinn's advice about posting rate. 1 chapter a day for a week or so helps attract readers and then you can cut back to whatever you're comfortable with. The FAQ's under Support provide a good overview of the site. Being active in the Forums and commenting on stories you read are the best ways to interact with the community. Hope you enjoy your experience here and that your story attracts many readers. Good luck.
