Shouldn't take too long, depending on how much your state allots for appeals. It'll probably take longer to get the record together.

* CA has the longest time to appointment, but only in death penalty cases because they don't pay enough to do a thorough job investigating and putting together an appropriate appeal - image spending hundreds of hours on a DP case appeal and getting paid less than $5K for it, and you have to do the investigations yourself because the court won't approve the cost of an investigator.

* Most states have court appointed appellate attorneys not just an Appellate Public Defender. They get paid decently, but you can expect at least a 6 months delay for every change in counsel, at least where I work, IL and IA.
