How long should a novel be?

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

I've been thinking about this recently: how long do you like your novels? Epic 600-page monsters, or little 150-page novellas? And why?

And if you're a writer, how many words are your novels? Fifty thousand words? Seventy-five? One hundred?How do you figure out how long they should be?

I'm very interested to know!

(By the way... I just did a book chat with Megan at Literary Life about Melina Marchetta's latest novel The Piper's Son. We're giving away two copies of The Piper's Son, so head over and check it out!)
