Great question. It depends on the timeline you give yourself.
My first book I presold via crowdfunding which finished on my birthday. I said people would have it by end of July. At that stage I literally had written only a chapter, so I wrote a few days a week for the first two months, and then every day of the final month to hit my deadline!
For my latest book I wrote it over a period of around 5 months. And then rewrote a lot of it this year over 2 months.
