Hi there! I'm an aspiring author who wants to try building a website for my novel but is a total noob at it. I read some advices here and there, although I might just resort to royalroad or... wattpad or... scribble hub if I'm not able to make one. I'm planning to do some beta to people I know before trying to somehow publish my "novel." As I am also a noob at writing, that isn't my concern for now as I'm still practicing with it. How could I possibly publish my own novel for free? Is there a platform where I can publish my own novel safely while also being taken seriously? Advance thank you to who will response to this thread!
