These days, speculations are rampant about The Winds of Winter release date. In fact, the novelist George R.R. Martin has been keeping mum on this matter, which has provided endless grist to the rumor mill. However, lately, Martin took some time out and gave away a few updates about his forthcoming book. According to him, he is adding more content to the book making it more interesting. Does that mean, The Winds of Winter release date will be extended for additional pages?
Backstage at the Emmy Awards night, the 68-year-old veteran novelist dropped some hints on what the fans can expect about the future has for the hit franchise. He also indicated towards a potential successor of A Dance with Dragons.
To keep the fans excited, George R.R. Martin opened up and shares some interesting facts about The Winds of Winter. In his words:
“I do have thousands of pages of the fake history of everything that led up to Game of Thrones, so there’s a lot of material there and I’m writing more.”
Martin further clarified:
“At the moment we still have this show to finish and I have two books to finish so that’s all speculation.”
What should we make out of his statement? There is no denying that it is certainly exciting news as he was promising for a potential prequel. On the contrary, adding more content might take the writer a little more time to finish off the book. In fact, earlier he confessed that his writing pace is considerably slow this time. So will more content push The Winds of Winter release date further?
Some days earlier, Martin was busy addressing the fans of the series through his live journal. Since Game of Thrones earned nine trophies at the Creative Emmy Awards, the author appeared completely distracted. He’s been putting all his energies to celebrate the thumping success of GOT so his writing has had to take back seat. He was too distracted to concentrate on finishing his already long-overdue book The Winds of Winter.
The Winds of Winter is the most awaited sixth novel in the epic fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire by author George R.R. Martin. For now, we can be hopeful The Winds of Winter release date will be in 2017 before HBO’s Game of Thrones Season 7 returns to the small screens. For more updates stay tuned.
