I'm so sorry! I think I sent all of you a message rather than posting this as a discussion here. My question was, as a first time novelist, I wondered if there was a word count limit that agents and publishers look for in a manuscript. Could a manuscript be too long?

I find books that are over 100,000 words to be daunting. But I am not sure if that holds true for novels. It will depend on the story. There are always extraneous rabbit holes that can be tightened or eliminated, however, if the story calls for the length go for it.
