So, about a month back, I did a thread asking some questions on the Wattpad Books brand (not the poll, just questions). One of the staff members, @emmab, was able to answer them.
Here’s one of the ones I was asked and this was her reply
Here’s the thing: As of recently, there’s been a lot of Teen Fictions on this site that are around 60 to 80 chapters, over 100K words, all that.
I only saw one book under the brand that has 400+ pages, which is “The QB Bad Boy And Me”, and that’s at 416. Everyone else is at the 300s page count, which is the usual average for a Teen debut novel.
Here’s an example: The Bad Boy And The Tomboy. The book is 300K words, the author self published it and she cut it down to 295K words. It’s about anywhere from 800-1000+ pages, depending on where you purchase it.
If it would get traditionally published, then it would probably get rejected. This is because usually YA books that get traditionally published, especially for debut novels, are around 60 to 80K words.
Sorry for the rambling, but this is just my concern regarding Wattpad Books.
