Writing Books/book length

Question
What word range should a fiction book typically fall within?  

Answer
Dear Randy,
Thank you for your question. I'd say somewhere between 30,000 and 60,000 words (120 - 300 pages). It can be longer or shorter, of course, depending on what you need to say in your story. Usually authors add subplots and that gives the book more volume.
I hope this helps.
Sincerely,
Nori
