DRAGON TIME

Spain
[first posted at 9 am EST on my website]

No. Sorry. Not done yet.

I'm close, though. Watch this space. When the book is done, you will read it here.


original cover 2006

Meanwhile... there is news. Big news. The end is in sight, at long long last, and we're close enough so that my editors and publishers at Bantam Spectra have set an actual publication date.


revised cover 2007

A DANCE WITH DRAGONS will be in your favorite bookstore on

TUESDAY, JULY 12, 2011


new cover 2009

Yes, I know. You've all seen publication dates before: dates in 2007, 2008, 2009. None of those were ever hard dates, however. Most of them... well, call it wishful thinking, boundless optimism, cockeyed dreams, honest mistakes, whatever you like.

This date is different. This date is real.

Barring tsunamis, general strikes, world wars, or asteroid strikes, you will have the novel in your hands on July 12. I hope you like it.

((For what it's worth, the book's a monster. Think A STORM OF SWORDS))


final cover? 2011

The dragons are coming. Prepare to dance.

And hey... thanks for waiting.

First reaction: Bloody hell, you did it!
Second reaction: Bloody hell, you SURVIVED it!
Third reaction: Wait...you wouldn't joke about this, right?
Fourth reaction: No, no...of course not. You want to live.
Fifth reaction: Holy crap, I'm gonna have this book soon!
Sixth reaction: ...You're gonna kill my favorites, aren't you? *sob*

I'll learn to deal. Well done, sir. You may nap now. :o)

Audio Version
Hi.Still psyched by the awesome news.I'm just wondering about the audio version.Will it release alongside the book?If not is there any idea as to when it might be coming out?Most importantly any chance of Roy Dotrice as reader?I have nothing against John Lee but Mr. Dotrice did such an awesome job with the first 3 books I'd love to hear him do another.I hope that I'm not repeating some one else's question.Thank you again for efforts in tackling Kong.

Love the final cover
I love the final cover. Much better than the awful graduated color backgrounds.

Sweet! I really hope there's a kindle version for this. (I liked the original cover best, it has a sense of continuity)

There is not much that could make me happier than I am at this point in time. :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD etc.

The (possibly) final cover is win. WIN. In fact, everything about this post is win.

... except for the fact that the release date is six days after I start my PhD. HOW WILL I CHOOSE?

Contratulations!
Really happy for this milestone from a fan from Italy, btw you signed me a book in Lucca in 2005. I hope you can pay a visit to my country sometime in the future.

I screamed and danced around. No really. My sister couldn't figure out why I was so excited and apparently fangirl-babble is somewhat incomprehesable.

I'm ready to dance :)
From a french fan : thank you GRRM, yesterday you're announcement enlighted my day !
I'm sure I'm not believing that it's possible. Is this real ?
I wanted to scream "Victory" all around, like Johnny Drama !
Ond you're welcome for waiting, if I can read a new ASOS :)

One more time : Thank you !
