For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
Most print publishers seem to be insist that a novel should be atleast 60,000 words to merit publication, although one would have thought that, what with the pace of life everywhere becoming faster and faster, readers would be more inclined towards novellas which they could perhaps read through entirely over a weekend.
On the other hand, there are normally many interruptions in the course of reading through a long novel --- so much so that one may often lose the thread of what one's reading.
Is this common requirement of publishers, then, something they themselves have artificially created --- perhaps to serve their own production interests?
