@UweStenderPhD How many words is too many for a historical?
Do you count the prologue or the historical facts list at the end?

Replying to @JulietteGodot

You should count everything. Essentially, there is never a correct answer on word count, but I'd keep it -ideally-below 100K for a debut. And reconsider the prologue, put it in the plot.
