So, whacha think of our video?


  1. Some of my rough drafts for romance novels have been around 120,000 - 140,000. Needless to say, I needed to chop out a lot of extra words! But my novels still average more than 50,000. I guess you could say they're more drama/contemp/romance than plain romance though.

    1. I can see that, plus, this is an average. Think about all the mass market paperback romances out there. There's nothing wrong with being above average.


Go on; give us your two cents.
