Re: Re: Question about reading
I'm with Tobber! Finding a critique-focused group is great, and I heartily recommend it. You may even find one or more dedicated critique partners that way. I've posted more than one novel on the site (group-only access, because anything less restrictive can be considered "previously published" by most publishers and pro-rate magazines) and have gotten great feedback from multiple readers through critique groups. (Shoutout to WYRM!)

If you want to draw readers in and get a lot of great and thoughtful feedback, creating a static item with your first chapter and posting it to the "Please Review page is wonderful. I've had great results there! (I've personally had better luck with the Please Review page than "The Shameless "Plug" Page. I think it's because people on the former page know writers are seeking honest, in-depth feedback and are happy to provide it.) You can always link to the book item at the bottom and encourage readers to follow the link to the next chapter to read more, as well.

The occasional reader might read through a whole novel and review it chapter by chapter without prompting. There's such a wide variety of writers and readers on the site, though. If you want consistent feedback, finding—or creating—your niche is a good idea.
