Vanessa Wester asked Jojo Moyes:

What is your writing process? How long does it take to write a novel, edit, and take it to market? Thanks

Jojo Moyes Hi Vanessa. That's a bit of a piece of string question, but in general, it takes me between a year and 18 months to write a novel. The editing process can take anything from 3 months to a year, and then it has to find space on shelves. So the book you see, I may have begun work on three years earlier. And if you're seeing it from a different country to the UK, it may be earlier than that...
