The Winds of Winter release date is constantly in flux. Meanwhile, author George R.R. Martin dropped some hints about the current status of the book.  Reports have it that the veteran novelist is gearing up to release the book before Game of Thrones Season 7 hits the small screens.

Fans are starting to worry that the sixth installment of the epic fantasy series, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ will not be released ever following cancellation rumors. However, the good news is that The Winds of Winter isn’t going anywhere, and it definitely hasn’t been canceled.

The real issue is just that Martin’s writing pace is relatively slow. In fact, his involvement in various other projects is keeping the author busy.  Possibly, his commitments to conventions, theater and the HBO series itself have left him with limited time to concentrate on The Winds of Winter. According to sources, the American novelist really wants to have the book ready before Game of Thrones Season 7 premieres. In fact, he is sparing no efforts to get it done.

Martin updated his “Not a Blog” today as he heads out to the Guadalajara International Book Fair.  He addressed his fans in a post, confirming that this will be his last public appearance of 2016. Year 2017 is going to be a busy year for him because he is all set to finish the book on time, learned CB.

The post reads:

“This is my last scheduled event for 2016. My appearance schedule for 2017 is very limited and will remain so until WINDS is completed. So if you want to meet me or get a book signed, this will be the last chance for a good few months.”

The Winds of Winter cancellation rumors seem to be all over the Internet right now. The ridiculous notion is that George R. R. Martin lost the manuscript for the book, which is identified as a hoax.
