What are the proper number of words for a novelette, a novella, and a novel?
Magazine publishers and other commercial outlets generally have various number-of-words requirements for articles and short stories, but are there standard word-lengths for the above three categories?

Based on my won research each publisher has a different requirement when it comes to words count. When you contact them they will give you a submissions guidelines and in those guidelines there will be a section on minimum and maximum requirement for each book level. So it is better to get this info before doing any submissions.
