I wouldn’t post too much of your novel if you can avoid it. Also if your first chapter is better than your prologue (if you have a prologue) I’d put that first. I think a lot of people on here just read the first chapter.

I’m afraid I haven’t cracked this nut either. I currently have 14 chapters posted but haven’t posted another in a long while because I felt I had passed the bow of the wave. I think it would depend on the particular project, the buzz you can create around it (in and outside of Inkshares), and, well, some luck.

Still, if you search through old topics in this forum there are others who asked similar questions and authors who were more successful than me in answering them.

Good question, I am also new and also interested in what people have to say. I just updated another chapter myself this afternoon and was wondering the same question. 

Also, any recommendations for how much of your volume to put up? Say you have 45 chapters, would 10 be an okay number or does anyone think this is too much?

Hello ladies, gents, and gentlethem! As a newbie around here, who just uploaded my third chapter (exciting!) is there any rule of thumb to how often you should update? As often as possible? Once a week? Month? If there’s a sweet spot I’d love to know.
Thank you!
