    1. Re: Simple question - how's my cover?

      Weird font, looks like Paint. Too thin  I immediately connect mermaids with romance, so I would probably skip it. The merman is a bit small. But it looks pretty good all-in-all. But, very modern. (...)


    2. Re: How do completed stories work?

      It might be a case of where the line is drawn re: monetization. If you aren't trying to find patrons or asking for donations, if you make it plain that you're just drafting a story, not marketing one, (...)


    3. Re: How do completed stories work?

      I'd expect that the trad publishers's stance is at least partly legal. There are so many sites to post fiction on the net. No one can be sure that what they've posted hasn't been ripped off. The risk (...)


    4. Re: How do completed stories work?

      It might not apply - or it might. If you haven't already, maybe check out this recent thread https://www.royalroad.com/forums/thread/109312 People keep on bringing up Amazon - that is not what (...)


    5. Re: How do completed stories work?

      All of the small presses I know personally are well and truly swamped with demand, so I can't point you to anyone in particular in that regard. And remember, I'm here because I'm looking into the web (...)


    6. Re: How do completed stories work?

      You're certain of this? Even if what I took down was a first draft that's very different from the eventual result?  I'm going to come back to respond to other posts here later, but for now: yes. (...)


    7. Re: I need an honest opinion here.

      Most modern fantasy that isn't written for children should suffice as reading material, but I'd particularly recommend epic fantasy (epic as in long fantasy, not high fantasy). Epic fantasy series tend (...)

    9. Re: How do completed stories work?

      Interesting... I hope to have some of my stories traditionally published at some point - right now I'm drafting them, putting them on sites like this to get feedback during the process. Then I'm (...)


    10. Re: How do completed stories work?

      popular in traditional publishing, notably fantasy and sci fi, Royal Road has oodles of fantasy. As to sci-fi, not so much, but there are several very good works I recommend, including: Post (...)


    11. Re: How do completed stories work?

      One thing I want to know is how a completed story does when the author is still writing, just on a new story. In trad pub, readers who like an author will very frequently sample or complete that author's (...)


    12. Re: How do completed stories work?

      Yes - 1000 views? I'd fall off my chair! Ten is a good day. Depends on the genre - and what I post isn't in popular ones. But I agree. If writing a series, it's best not to split them. The readers never (...)


    13. Re: How do completed stories work?

      Finally, when you say the views stop dripping in, do you mean that the views on the old chapters stop dripping in (which would only occur with new readers)? Of course, if you get a thousand views per (...)


    14. Re: How do completed stories work?

      I had a large number of people read book one, leave a comment saying "Wow, I loved this book. Wish there was more." I would reply letting them know I was writing a book 2 and I would even leave the link (...)

    16. Re: How do completed stories work?

      But, yes, for most books, marking them complete does slow the action down to a fraction of a trickle. Yes, unfortunately it seems like on most writing sites, it slows down to barely anything. I (...)


    17. Re: How do completed stories work?

      So I hear it from readers sometimes "I don't read a lot of ongoing stories. I have picked up stories before, gotten really into them, only to find that they've been on hiatus for two years. It sucks. So (...)


    18. Re: Hello, a new noob Unvisible writer.

      Hello all, I'm new to Royal Roads and also a new noob writer. I'm extremely shy and insecure, I usually try to stay as unvisible as possible, only as a reader. Yet with the support of my significant (...)


    19. Re: I need an honest opinion here.

      Don't mind me, I'm trying to jus figure out how to unsub to this thread. 


    20. Re: Simple question - how's my cover?

      That triple shadow on your name at the bottom is making that part a bit hard to read, it kinda makes my eyes twitch a bit because it feels like I'm seeing blurs, but again it's not as bad in the smaller (...)
