How to promote webfiction (2020)A good question, is it not?
When I began publishing my short stories on Tapas, I also began looking for opportunities for promotion and was unpleasantly surprised when I learned how few there were! My list of resources for promoting webcomics is long and full of options but a similar list for webnovels will be very short, I'm afraid.
So, let's take a look as what we have at our disposal.
3. Teksti(a sister site to Piperka that tracks webcomics) - a database of webfiction where people can subscribe and follow your stories.
5. Muse's success (list of webnovels and recommendations)
6. RedditThere are lots of writing communities there but few of them allow self-promotion.
Here's some that do:
r/writing (only in as a comment in a self-promotion thread)
7. TwitterBesides posting links to your updates and just being social:
Tags: #amwriting #writerslife #WriterWednesday #bookgiveaway #indieauthors #WriteChat #FreeDownload #FreeBook #IndieThursday #Storytelling
Accounts to follow:
8. ComicAd(banner network for webcomics and webnovels)
You can both earn money and advertise there, plus, there are free options, like banner exchange

9. ForumsWell, it's usually sub-for-sub or read-for-read, but you can give them a go. Almost every writing platform (RoyalRoad, Tapas, etc.) has a forum. --
Hope it helps!
