I'm remembering reading an article where a published author described how he would sell his book ideas to a publisher through an agent. Among the details he would include is an approximate length of the work. Makes me wonder if there is an ideal length (pages, words) for a novel to be to make it more readily publishable. I know, there are books of all lengths and print size, but I still imagine as a business there are some industry standards they look for. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
