Problem: I want to release something that isn't a chapter (author note, recent news, illustrations) and I don't want it to show up on novelupdates advertising because it would be silly for people to click on it only to find I posted a picture. Is it possible to do this? I'll give an example down below.

I want to post a small update to my readers about my title illustration. I want to add some author comments and show my old and new illustration, but it's not an official chapter so I don't want it to show up in the advertising because it's just a little extra update.

For illustrations, glossaries are a thing. If you want to make an update that tackles a lot of stuff that you want to pass across but is not a chapter, just post it as a chapter. If people do come and click on your story from novelupdate, they'll most likely check out your first chapters before your later ones. If the people that clicked on your story for novelupdate are readers of yours, then all good, you want them to check out your update, don't you?

Right, right a glossary would work. It's true that I want views, but I don't wanna abuse it. >.<

Hmmm, but it might be an okay idea to suggest another option other than "ADD CHAPTER" in the "Suggestions & Bug Reports" section.

Thank you. Using a glossary is clever!

You can also try editing your previous chapter and add the News, Author Note etc (seen at the top of the text box). It’s also okay if you put up a new chapter but make sure to say in the title that it’s an author update or note i.e “A/N: Dear Readers, Your Attention Please” or simply, “Announcements”.

Hope that helps.
