How long does it take you to write a book?

Ideally it takes me 9 months to a year to produce a book of 50,000 to 75,000 words (250 to 300 double-spaced pages). This may or may not include the time spent writing the book proposal, which is often the most difficult part of the process as my partner and I are structuring the book, planning where each piece of content should go, and developing a marketing plan. However, in emergency situations where the deadline is imminent, I have written “crashed” books in only 2 months. For projects that are this stressful and intense, my compensation is adjusted accordingly.
