I am getting ready to send my novel to DAW next. Unlike Tor they want a complete copy of the manuscript. Manuscript format is in Courier font and with one inch borders and single-sided printing. That means that it is a lot of pages. This one was 721 manuscript pages, which is about 153,000 words. That’s a little bit long for most novels but still in the average range.
Luke Skywalker is there for scale.
