HBO Casting Continues

Casting on the HBO pilot of A GAME OF THRONES continues, but there's not much I can say about it, except in generalities. Another of the supporting roles has been filled, I am told, and offers have been made on several more. Now we're waiting to see if those deals will close, which of course depends on things like schedule, terms, money, and such. If all the pieces fall into place, we'll have some exciting and talented additions to the cast.

No, I have no idea when HBO will make their next cast announcement.

Two major roles and some small ones remain unfilled as I write.

Looks like I will be flying over to Ireland to watch some of the filming. Still trying to figure out the dates. Since I will be over there anyway, it seems like a good opportunity to meet some of my Irish fans, so I will likely be doing a couple of signings while I'm there. One in Belfast, almost certainly, and maybe a second in Dublin. We'll see what arrangements can be made. Details will here and on my Appearances page, once I know 'em.

I know politics isn't your main concern, and I hate to ask, but it'd be great if you could do a signing in Dublin in addition to one in Belfast. My family is split 50-50 when it comes to Irish politics, but you're the whole family's favorite author. It might be a lot to ask, but I'd be personally very grateful if you showed a little love to both sides of the border.

Re: Dublin
I would certainly LIKE to do a Dublin signing, and my publishers are trying to arrange same. It's a question of whether they can find a bookstore that (a) wants to have me, and (b) has a suitable open date. We're only about five weeks out, and many bookshops schedule their events months in advance, so the scheduling is tricky. Most bookshops try to avoid having two writers in on the same day, and my window is quite tight, so the number of possible dates is very limited. But we'll do the best we can.

Re: Dublin
Martin, If you're over watching the filiming at the end of next month (possible I believe with the dates) then there is the larget games convetion in Ireland (and the larget independent games con in Europe) on the weekend of the 24th - 26th. - http://www.gaelcon.com/gaelcon/

It's an awesome convesntion and probably a great place to do both a signing and publicise other stuff.

I promise you the con is real gem. The people there are friendly beyond belief and it is the home of the original Irish Gaming Charity Auction that has won a Diana Jones award for excellence in gaming for just beyong generous to charity to the point of madness, all in the name of gaming - http://wapedia.mobi/en/Diana_Jones_award

Give it a thought!

Re: Dublin
I know a guy who organises these things for one of the biggest bookstores in Dublin. Do you, or your assistant, or publicist, want his contact details? He put together an amazing event in his bookshop with Neil Gaiman a while back...
