George R.R. Martin Gives Updates on ‘Winds of Winter’

We’ve been patiently awaiting the arrival of George R.R. Martin’s next book in his A Song of Ice and Fire series. In early 2015, Martin released an excerpt from the book, but since then, fans have been wondering where the finished product is.

The next book, Winds of Winter, was rumored to release this March, but we’re not so certain of that anymore. On his blog, Martin responded to an inquiry by a fan saying, “Not done yet, but I’ve made progress. But not as much as I hoped a year ago when I thought to be done by now. I think it will be out this year. (But hey, I thought the same thing last year).”

Well, March isn’t looking like the date if he’s behind on writing! Winds of Winter will definitely not be ready for Season 6 of Game of Thrones, but maybe before Season 7! Fingers crossed!
