Home Again

I'm back at home in Santa Fe, after five days in LA for the TCA and Vroman's signing.

The LA trip was great for me. Yes, it was tiring, and I faded a lot faster than before my hospital stay... but it gave my spirits a huge boost to become George the Writer once again, after the dehumanizing experience of being George the Patient. The TCA was an amazing experience... seeing the new trailer, doing all the interviews (many on video, clips from which you'll doing be seeing in the future of CNN, E, Sky, and all the other channels that sat me down for questioning), and of course the big panel. That last one I did with David and Dan, Sean Bean, Emilia Clarke, and Peter Dinklage. What a rush.

The Vroman's signing was also amazing. I've heard various estimates of turnout... but considering that it was sort of a last-minute thing, the number of readers who showed up was staggering. I'm sorry we had to cut off inscriptions halfway through the queue, but it was the only was to make certain everyone got at least one book signed.

And all the readers were so kind. I have the best fans in the world. I appreciate all of your good wishes.

Anyway, I'm much stronger now than when I left, and getting better every day... but the work has piled up as well, so tomorrow my nose goes back on the grindstone. For a few hours, anyway. Parris and my docs agree, no more twelve-hour days for a while. So posts here may be less frequent than before. Kong comes first.

The TCA was an amazing experience... seeing the new trailer
Great news that LA was uplifting. Sounds like fun. Does the "The TCA was an amazing experience... seeing the new trailer" comment pertain to ANOTHER trailer besides the "Inside Game of Thrones" release? If anyone reeading this knows of a new trailer can you please post a link? I would love to see it!

Best

Best wishes. I can't think of a better town than Santa Fe for recovery. Let's head to the Shed for soup and bread!

Looking good, and so are you George, can those angels kick ass like the other lot?
In case we haven't said so before, we all love you, in a manly way in my case.

Hi George Martin:

I'm so glad you know that you're better health. No doubt I have asked the seven you get better soon. I'm a fan of your series A Song of Ice and Fire. These are undoubtedly some of the best books I've read. I'm from Chile, and here the books have not arrived, but ordered it overseas and I literally devoured them, every situation, conflict and character you get caught. But now I've been empty, and anxious much you can launch the 5 book A Dance with Dragons. And not just me I have some online friends that we've gone crazy with your story, do not stop to comment, as now with the HBO series. It's been a long wait, and I think it's request and has received much, but despite the time elapsed since the last publication of a book, and here we are looking for new fans, hopefully this year is that we know what happens by Westeros.

Much success, power inspiration
From a fan of the end of the world.

Off the hook.
Yes, Kong must fall. But you are not quite off the hook. We hope read an exuberant post when the Jets, and specifically Rex Ryan bring down "evil little bill" on Sunday!

Looking forward to that delayed announcement about aDwD! Since you (thankfully) only lost a short amount of time with your hospital stay, I know that we can look forward to the announcement shortly! Glad you're feeling well, and happy writing!

Glad you're ok and enjoyed the trip... as far as fans are concerned, maybe we're the best because YOU ARE THE BEST! Hope to read Kong as soon as possible... to keep being one of the best fans of the absolutely best writer on earth ;)

I am a little jealous about the ones who could see you in person because I guess that my country is not on the list of your destinations.
I will be in Britain and Ireland sometime in the summer, and if you are there at the same time by chance, I will surely go whereever you make a public gathering.
Get well soon. And let the winter come soon.

And IIiiiiiiIIII was one of them! The place was packed. Two story book store, the signing was upstairs, and line went down to the first floor and to the back door. Well worth the hour and a half wait.
