The Winds of Winter is not coming anytime soon but George R.R. Martin’s commitment to complete the book must be applauded. During a recent Q&A session on his blog, Martin was asked:
Q: “Hello, Mr. Martin! Sorry for the off-topic question, but will you be writing an episode for Season 7 of Game of Thrones?”
A: “I am not writing anything until I deliver WINDS OF WINTER. Teleplays, screenplays, short stories, introductions, forewords, nothing.
And I’ve dropped all my editing projects but Wild Cards.”
GRRM recently revealed that he has missed the deadline for finishing the sixth book in A Song of Ice and Fire Saga. He also received criticism from some fans who accused him of procrastinating but an analysis of Martin’s pace revealed that he isn’t behind schedule at all and we can expect the author to release The Winds of Winter in 2017.
