    1. Re: Question about new paragraph about 'Trending' in the Support FAQ

      So, reading the site's Support FAQ yet again, and I notice this, which I think is new: If you have an existing reader base, we highly recommend batch releasing 5-10 chapters on the first day as Trending (...)


    2. Re: My first patron!

      I've snagged a patron! It's not even someone who knows me as I only post under a pseudonym; it's a reader from online! I am now earning a monthly income from writing, however miniscule! I am so excited (...)


    3. Re: Help me work out why my story tanked?

      Regarding the hiatus fictions:  Am I understanding correctly that you already have finished them and could update them at any time?  If yes, is there a particular reason for not doing so, say... once (...)


    4. Re: Help me work out why my story tanked?

      Ok dudes, thanks for all the advice. Here's what I've done so far: 1. Deleted two of my other hiatus fictions which I had just added so that I could schedule chapter releases for them ahead of time. (...)


    5. Re: Help me work out why my first story tanked?

      So I spent a while researching how to game Trending on RoyalRoad, and then the Trending algorithim got changed just before I started posting... However, even if it hadn't, my first story is not doing (...)


    6. Re: What are the best amounts to charge for tiers on patreon?

      Does anyone here use Discord roles linked to their patreon? I have a question if so: Do you make it so that higher tier roles can also see all the message of lower tier roles? Or is each role an exclusive (...)


    7. Re: Has there been any changes to how the Trending list works?

      Ok, so I opened a support ticket about this and got referred to this thread... Here's my final question, I think the most important one, which I think is worth answering: Does number of ratings as (...)


    8. Re: Has there been any changes to how the Trending list works?

      I believe that this was the reason that the trending algorithm was updated - to decrease peoples' ability to game the system in this way, giving them a leg up on authors who don't. My recommendation (...)


    9. Re: Should I start daily posting my stockpiled chapters for multiple stories all at once, or sequentially?

      Just resurrecting this thread to ask: Has anyone's advice about this changed now that we know that the Trending algorithm has changed? Does anyone on RR Discords have any more info about the Trending (...)


    10. Re: Has there been any changes to how the Trending list works?

      Don't worry about schedules or whatnot affecting your chances with trending - it won't Many thanks for all the information and for all your hard work on this website. So I spent a (...)


    11. Re: What are the best amounts to charge for tiers on patreon?

      To be honest, you should not expect any noteworthy amount of pledges if your planned monthly production is 5-10k words. Even per-chapter authors have a pretty high monthly output. As other posters (...)


    12. Re: Published RRL Authors

      Anyone know any RR authors who have been commercially / traditionally published?  A few, yeah. Coco_P is getting published soon, for example, and Wandering Inn has gotten an audiobook and everything. (...)


    13. Re: Question about what to do with pre-written chapters

      Double post sorry, just tagging this so I get email notifications for my question above about how the formula for Trending has changed.


    14. Re: Question about what to do with pre-written chapters

      Word of warning, the Trending requirements seem to have changed. If you check Trending right now, there are Writathon novels that haven't even been out for 30 days. Not sure what the current Trending (...)


    15. Re: Question about what to do with pre-written chapters

      Dude, I have discovered what you want to be doing is getting onto Trending. I'll post about this as I have been researching how to succeed on RoyalRoad prior to posting my stuff here. Go and read (...)


    16. Re: What are the best amounts to charge for tiers on patreon?

      Ok, so I've done some deep-dive patreon research now. Here are my findings: It seems most of the highest grossing authors release 5-7 chapters a week, and have monthly tiers of $1, £5 and £10 (sometimes (...)


    17. Re: Published RRL Authors

      Anyone know any RR authors who have been commercially / traditionally published? 


    18. Re: How to get Isekai'd

      My story 'The Chronicles of Mashal' has lots of variations on this. It's basically Narnia + Final Fantasy (but no stat tables). There's only one chapter up at the moment, but I'll start posting the rest (...)


    19. Re: What are the best amounts to charge for tiers on patreon?

      As someone who buys a lot of patreon chapters, $1.50 per chapter is about right to me.   The price should be directly related to reader loyalty.   If you have a really interesting fiction like (...)


    20. Re: What are the best amounts to charge for tiers on patreon?

      Yes, you have to start at zero patrons initially, but (personally I think) the shorter that time period is, the better. Potential patrons can see the history of your posts, which will give them a pretty (...)
