Many Genres - One Theme: Keep It Clean
The number of pages in a book depends on the size of the book, the font type and size and other factors, so page count is not an accurate way to determine book length. That is why publishers use word count.
Books are divided into categories by word count and audience. This varies from one publisher to the next, but general standards apply. The standard for adults and children vary, as well as genre. Below are the general standards and terms used by HomeSpun Literature Publishing.
Flash Fiction - Up to 1000 words
Short Story - 1000 to 7500 words
Novelette - 7500 to 17,000 words
Novella - 17,000 to 30,000 words
Short Novel - 30,000 to 50,000 words
Novel - 50,000 and up
Children - up to 8 years
Youth - 8-18 years
Adult - 18 - 40
Mature - 40 and up
Glue Bound - standard paperback binding
Comb Bound - Best for hands free reading
Staple Bound - Used for booklets
Most HomeSpun Literature books have slightly larger text than normal, though not considered large text. Arial font is used for the text of a book, because it is larger and easier to read. Shoppers say they find this combination much easier to read. Of course, that increases the pages in a book, but does not affect the word count.
