DRAGON TIME

[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.

That's almost exactly a month after my birthday! Best present ever? Best present ever.

Have a good time writing the rest of it, George! Hope it's the fun bits. :)

Wow! So happy to hear your good news!
George, I stop by every couple of days to check up on you. Imagine my surprise when I read this news on the Westeros page on Facebook, which I just started following after your "social media" post a few days ago. I almost registered on livejournal a week or so ago just so I could congratulate you on your wedding, so let this post serve as congratulations on both your recent marriage AND the announcement of the publication date. I'm so happy for you, and I can't wait to read the book!
