Initially I felt sorry for authors who strive to write so many pages when they can get away with less words. But I have realized that the big book promoters and the big magazines /newspapers /editors are allergic to short books. My longest book is 74 pages long so you can call it Almost Short My next book will have to be at least 103 or 153 pages long.
hi everyone. I'm still sort of new. I have written a short story of about 7,000 words. could someone tell me how to make this ebook into a 100,000 word book?
If you told the story in 7,000 words you would have to pad it with 93,000 useless words. It will look like a padded book and the reader will stop far short of even the 7,000 word mark. A story is finished when it's finished.
I agree, If you padded a 7K word book to 100 and sent it to an editor, he or she might would probably cross out all those extra useless words. Just make up a new story and expand on it until it no longer become interesting..
