Some people say Word Count doesn't matter, but I read an Article where an Agent said anything between below 50,000 or above 100,000 was not worth considering (for a first time writer). But the word Count depended largely on the Genre of the book. Register to remove this ad My books are always short because I get to the point I've never written anything above 60,000. But I'm planning on starting a Fantasy/Action/Romance Young Adult novel. I have never Published anything before, so how many words should I aim for?
