George R.R Martin has revealed that his upcoming book, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ will release on October 2015. Following this announcement, it seems that the official release date of The Winds of Winter could be leaked online soon. The report by Comic Central City suggests that the writer divulged the secret during a press event.
Reports indicate that George R.R Martin had a lengthy chat with his interviewers during the Game of Thrones press event. He revealed that the finishing touches on The Winds of Winter are presently being applied. These statements indicate that the book might release alongside ‘A Knight of Seven Kingdoms’ on October this year.
At the same time, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays the role of Jamie Lannister in Game of Thrones, revealed that the next book is releasing soon. According to him, the show bosses know as much about the story as George R.R Martin does.
He revealed to the reporters from Men’s Health magazine that although he hasn’t written the books, he is aware as to how he wants it to end. Nikolaj further added, “I don’t know when it comes out, but I’d assume soon.’’ Fans are predicting that the next installment in the famous A Song of Ice and Fire series will release in 2016.
Jane Johnson from Harper Collins indicates that The Winds of Winter is a very big and highly complex book. It is quite lengthy and takes a massive level of concentration to write. According to George R.R Martin, the exact release date hasn’t been scheduled yet.
Martin recently made a declaration, explaining his views on the release and scheduling issues through his official blog. He has expressed his concerns, hoping that The Winds of Winter has not been scheduled by any of his publishers.
According to him, he spent three years trying to make sure that his books are not scheduled before they are finished and delivered. He further declared that the scheduling and rescheduling of books is a messy affair, and especially pisses people off. He thinks that no scheduling should take place until the original date has been made certain.
