I apologise if this is not the right board, but I could not see any other boards that were more appropriate. Please move it if I posted this wrong, and I apologise if I did. Thank you. So I have almost finished a full 80,000-word novel, and I have been looking at options for how to make this available for free on the Internet. However, despite the fact that I do not wish to publish it "for real" - as I am quite convinced that it's simply not good enough for that - I would still like to give the maximum amount of people access to it. I have been looking at websites specifically for this kind of thing, such as writing.com, however it seems that that particular website does not allow any kind of formatting or likewise unless I pay at least 50 $ for a premium membership which, quite frankly, I find ridiculous. Therefore, I would like to know if anyone here might have any ideas for how to upload it online and still get at least some readers? The cheapest option currently seems to be starting my own website and just paying for hosting, which I am getting increasingly tempted to do. I am aware that publishers dislike vanity publishing of this kind, but I quite frankly do not think that I will ever get the chance to work with one, so that is a rather moot point. I am simply looking for the best way to release my novel, born out of my boredom, to the largest amount of potential readers willing to read my story without paying a dime for it. That is, I wish to pay as little as possible, and they should pay nothing, in case I wasn't clear there. Thank you in advance. And again, I apologise if this is not the right board.
