George R.R. Martin?s followers will surely be delighted to know this latest rumor about the release of Winds Of Winter. Instead of an early 2018 or late 2017 release, speculations state that it would arrive before the premiere of the Game of Thrones (GoT) season 7.
For the past months, fans of the book series have read a lot of false news regarding the launch of the Winds of Winter. There were some claims that it would be available some time next year. And, there were also those who reported that it would arrive after GoT season 7.
Now, a new rumor will contradict all the previous ones as it states that Martin will launch the book prior to the seventh season of the TV series. So, if GoT will premiere in April 2017, then fans should expect the book early in 2017. It will indeed be an earlier release from what was predicted in the past months.
Previous reports revealed that Martin is having a hard time finishing the sixth installment of the Song of Ice and Fire book series. He even mentioned in his blog that he is bad in meeting deadlines. On a good note, Martin promised that he will keep on writing and will not disappoint the fans with the content of the book.
Furthermore, there are also news saying that the Winds of Winter will be the basis of the Game of Thrones season 7. If that would be the case, then it is safe to say that the book should really arrive first before the TV series returns. Although Martin has not unveiled the content of the book yet, still it will be as interesting as the previous ones.
Meanwhile, rumors that Martin cancelled the publication of the book surfaced online after Donald Trump won the U.S. Presidential Election. According to claims, the author has lost his focus in writing the book as he is a huge supporter of Hillary Clinton.
As a result of Trump?s victory, Martin starts questioning himself if he could still finish the book or if he would even write again ever. These claims are certainly alarming for the fans as they have been waiting for the book to arrive for quite some time already. On a good note, there is no confirmation yet regarding the matter so let us just hope for the best.
