Ah, to hold...  
Finally received in the mail today my novel, Guardian of the Sky Realms. The feeling of touching one's debut novel is indescribable. Very special indeed.

Total time?
How long from start to finish, Gerry?

gday BCG.

Depends in what context, so I will answer all.

About two years from writing the short story, to publishing the short novel.

I probably didn't start writing the novel proper until about mid 2009, so 18 months.

I did it seriously part time - had many other things to do. As a guess, in full time equivalent terms, it probably took about 3 months to write, and another month to go through the editing/proofing work.
