Guidelines for Story Length

Here's a couple good sites that give word counts for various works, from short stories to novellas to novels, by genre.


And for works intended for children:


And, finally, the word counts for my books. These include total word count, including research, appenxdixes, and chapter listings.

Bryony: 104,148

Visage (special edition): 132,926

Visage: 130,995

Staked!: 149,167

Before the Blood (projected): 330,000 (current word count is around the 90,000 mark, and I am not yet a third of the way done).

Hope this helps! :)
