The fundraising will last 18 days (2.5 weeks). When the minimum goal is reached here is what you can expect the timeline to be from there on. Immediate slight revisions will be made to the book that includes the added pages with the backers names, second printing date and any last minute grammar corrections, after which the book is electronically submitted to the press (week 3.5). Because I'm old school I prefer a physical proof which typically takes less than two weeks to receive from the press (week 5). If no needed corrections are needed, than upon my approval the press can begin which currently has a production time of 14 days (week 7). Shipping from then can take a week before I receive the fresh batch (week 8). Now the ball really gets rolling as my wife and I will be checking lists, printing labels, packing books, and checking lists again till all are shipped off. Conservatively if we packed and shipped 50 books a day we could be done in a week (week 9) or if we're just slow, then two weeks (week 10?). Add 3-5 days shipping time till you receive your book. So we can say from start to finish the whole process can take 9.5 weeks on the fast side up to 10.5 weeks or more on the long side.
