How big is a 50000 word novel?
A 50,000 word manuscript is about 165 pages. That feels sooooooo short to me, for a novel, but YMMV.
Is 50k a novel?
50k is technically a novel, but only technically. Youre going to have difficulty publishing anything under around 70-75k, and most publishers are looking for 80k-120k, again, depending on the type of story.
Can a novel be 60 000 words?
In general, the Safe Zone for adult fiction is 70,000-100,000, and the Safe Zone for adult nonfiction is 60,000-90,000 words. Less than that and your book is probably too short. More than that and your book is probably too long.
