The Winds Of Winter” has been delayed for seven years already, which is why most fans are now very thrilled for its official release. Recently, George RR Martin has finally given a hint about the book’s launch date.

‘A Song Of Ice and Fire’ author hinted possible 2018 release

International Business Times Australia reported that George RR Martin has finally teased the possible release date of “The Winds of Winter” novel. Writing on his Not A Blog website, the 68-year-old author has admitted that he is currently working on the sixth book of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series.

Martin has also addressed the speculations claiming that he already finished writing the much-anticipated novel. He said that the reports are totally fabricated, adding that he is still months away before finalizing his draft.

The New Mexican writer did not disclose an official launch date of “The Winds of Winter” book. However, George RR Martin has shared that he is a bit uncertain whether “TWOW” or Westeros book titled “Fire and Blood” would be released first, UPI reported.

“I do think you will have a Westeros book from me in 2018... and who knows, maybe two,” Martin said. The “A Dance with Dragons” novel, which is the fifth book of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, officially hit the stores in 2011.

GRRM working very hard to finish ‘TWOW’

Meanwhile, KRQE News 13 reported that George RR Martin is now working very hard on “The Winds of Winter” book that he has no enough time to do other things. The brain behind the “Game of Thrones” series had previously complained about not being able to watch movies because he is finishing the long-delayed book.

Martin has claimed that he was able to watch only one movie in June, which he thinks is strange for him being a film lover. The veteran author even confessed that he, also, does not have time to read books as he focuses more on finishing “TWOW” novel.

The “A Feast for Crows” writer even expressed his frustrations on fans who keep on demanding him to publish the book the soonest time possible.

Martin, however, vowed to prioritize writing “The Winds of Winter” before he starts working on other book series.

Though George RR Martin teased that “The Winds of Winter” might come out in 2018, fans should note that nothing is final as of yet. Hence, they should take things lightly until everything is confirmed and proven correct. Stay tuned for more news and updates about the up and coming book!
