Should I post online?
If you mean put the entire story up online, that's never a good idea. If you mean a chapter, or a few hundred words of the opening for feedback, that's okay.
The reason for not posting work is that if you're giving it away and it's mildly popular, you're "poisoning the well," so to speak and eliminating customers. And if it's not popular why would they want it?
Hi @wordburner--you should definitely post an excerpt here on Book Country! Would love for the community to be able to get a sample of your writing to read here.
Hi @Tsunamitiz--what makes you say that? On Book Country we find that sharing your work and getting feedback helps members to revise their work into a better book.

I know there are risk on posting online, but if the source is reliable, I guess its worth the risk. Is good to have an opportunity to publish and to have your options open. Is good to have others to review and read your books other than just an publishing agency that might reject your book, not because your book is bad, but because your not famous.
I think posting an entire story or manuscript online is not a good idea. It's a risk you have to take. However, I think posting a chapter or a short summary is fine.
