George RR Martin has still not revealed the release date of “The Winds of Winter”. Is he saving it for after the end of Game of Thrones?
George RR Martin clarifies on Winds of Winter release date
The seventy-year-old author is yet to write the last two parts of the GOT book series. His last book “A Song of Ice and Fire” released in 2011. Martin is reluctant to share the release date of his next book as he doesn’t want to raise fans’ hopes. He said,
I have no date. I’ve given up giving dates because I give one and then I miss it and everyone gets mad. It’ll be done when it’s done.
Is this the reason why Martin has been waiting all this while? Or is he waiting to surprise everyone with the release date next week? It may not turn out to be good if the fans are not happy with the show’s finale. It sounds like a good publicity move, but what if it backfires?
There are rumors that George R.R. Martin has already finished writing “The Winds of Winter” and the final book “A Dream of Spring” as well. But these rumors have been strongly denied by the author. He said that he has not even started working on the last part.
It seems that Martin has not finished writing the next part, forget about starting the last one. But he can always set a reasonable release date and a deadline for publication. His team is after him to finish the work. He said that he was literally chained to his typewriter. Martin has been kept in isolation, away from the outside world. His loyal staff is making him eat healthily and focus on completing the books.
