If you wish to publish and sell it on Amazon it has to be 6,000- 7,000 words but I would think that an ideal Amazon e-book is something like 10,000 pages. Usually, they will first give out your e-book "free" as promo, but don't worry, if it catches good reviews, they sell it later for about 2-6 dollars. In fact, once I bought an ebook on the simple topic of Secrets of planting tomatoes.
I have not yet written an ebook, but I have bought several and it depends on the topic and genre. If it is a how-to book, as a reader I want it to be as succinct as possible. If it is novel, it just has to keep me engaged. I am all for publishing using ebooks because they save resources and space. If it is long, I will still read it as long as I continue to want to turn the page.
