New to this site and stumbling through the forest. Also, new to serious writing. Am finding plenty of mixed interpretations of what is the expected and accepted word count for fiction in different genres.
Why do some books with an eight year old protagonist have 80K and some agents limit same to 40K? Some newly published novels repeatedly weigh out at 100K and other agents state they can not sell anything over 78K.
Appreciate some advice,
doozy
