The only thing they have to do is waiting for their publishers to put a few things together, and they'll have a nice book in their hand.
And, it is the truth that if you choose to release your own manuscripts, you only have 1-3 month to await the delivery of your manuscripts and the receipt of a book in trade. However, if you are looking for a publishing job with a conventional publishing house that will pay you for the right to have your book published and take charge of all the detail, you can count on waiting a good 9-18 month before your book is on the shelf.

Many publishers will be proofreading for another round or two before considering the book print. Begin by having you and your editors send the typesetting pages to more prominent authors to have them covered.
