Can I borrow her? That sounds awesome!I told her I wanted to get ambitious with our third book. Some things you shouldn't say to your plotter. lol She delivered, and then some.
That's just called "the stormlight archive". Those are over 400k words each. It would be more profitable to split them up (easier to sell, and more to sell). But, in his own words, Brandon Sanderson was in a position where he could refuse a very lucrative offer to split them up and instead follow his artistic vision.What if it's over 300,000 words? I had to turn it into a trilogy.
Of course, if you indie-publish, and want to go Amazon exclusive and get your book into KDP select, then 300k words is actually great, since for borrows you get paid per page read.
500 words is actually still pretty long for flash fiction.Hmmm... would be interesting to play a mini-game where points are awarded for the best story in as few words as possible (how you would determine "best" I don't know). 500 words anyone?
