How many words are there in the average book?
There is no simple answer to this question, the answer is dependent about the genre or type of book you are writing.My solution is this, I went to Amazon.com, and purchase five books similar to the first book I am writing. I then converted it to format, that I could copy, and paste into Microsoft Word, then took the average of the five books.
However, take care, it seems reasonable, to ignore this, and try to make a beginning, middle and end, with the proper amount of words to tell the complete story.
My concern is this, people buy books for spontaneous reasons, a book that is too big, may be too big of challenge to the reader, and a book that is too small appear as a bad deal for the money, not enough size to warrant buying.
