Here's a suggestion: I think it would be better if you give the each chapters their own chapter for a more sizeable read instead of complying them together in one part. For example: 1. Part 1: Prologue: A Summoning (Put blurb or anything that you want to say about this part) 2. Chapter 1 3. Chapter 2 4. Chapter 4 5. Part 2: Awakings And so on.....
@JamesBrokaw Personally, I haven't gotten into the first part of the novel so I don't know if it will be too tiresome for me or not. Nor I can guarantee that this new organization will work better or for worse for I'm an amateur at writing and I don't know much about marketing except on what I see. But I'll try to stick to this novel.
@JamesBrokaw Yes. I do see your strategy having the parts coming one after the other so the reader will see that there is more text after the chapter that and prehaps more engagement to the story as well as seeing that there is less chapters a book meaning it will appear to be a short and quick read. My thought process behind the change of the organization of the chapters and parts was that you could possibly gain more stars (votes) and reads that if the reader chooses to read on. Plus, I tend to see books on this website divide their chapters like so. If you do make the transfer, just try not to delete any pre-existing chapters (the website calls them parts) for it deletes all votes, comments, and read in them. Just move each of them over then create new chapters for the rest 34 chapters+parts.
@SleepyKoala05 Thank you for taking an interest. My experience is that nine out of ten people who look at the book read only one or two pages and refuse to read more. The ninth person reads the whole thing and is extremely impressed, which leads me to ask if you can read the prior comments. If you can, that might encourage you to continue even if the first part is a little dry or slow. As to your specific comment, the division in to parts with a brief description is to avoid the just mentioned problem and tell the reader that there is good stuff ahead. If the book was shorter, I would do away with the separation into parts completely, but I think your idea is that each chapter should be made into a separate part?
