Lucienne Diver Discusses the Economics of Word Count

Lucienne Diver is guest blogging at Magical Words today about the "Economics of Word Count." Here's an excerpt:

"Simple economics: it costs more to print big, thick books than it does for thinner volumes. Shocker, right? This means more economic outlay for the publisher without a guarantee of returns on their investment. (And yes, I’m primarily talking about print publishing here, because while the audience for e-books is growing, their sales still only account for between 2% and 4% of the market and don’t yet pay a living wage.)"
