Writing Tip of the Day-Manuscript Formatting

No guidelines exist for the number of chapters in a book. This can vary from ten or twelve in a 50,000 word category novel to 20-25 for 100,000-word mainstream fiction, but 50 or more in literary fiction. Author vision and story requirements dictate how many chapter breaks are required.
