    I think it depends how much backstory is needed. My last novel needed to set things up for the reader, so a prologue was necessary.

      Thanks for dropping in. There are those cases, without a doubt. I recently proofed a book with a very long prologue. I suggested he take most of it and make it a new chapter one. He did and it flowed better. It was non-fiction.

        I agree with you there. It shouldn’t be painfully long.
