Moving On

The Scottish filming is done, and cast and crew are packing up today for the big move to Belfast and its Paint Hall, where the shoot will resume. So far, so good.

Parris and I are moving on as well. She'll be headed over to Ireland tomorrow to spend Samhaim with friends, while I linger here in Scotland a few more days to visit with Lisa Tuttle. We converge again in Belfast in November. Today we swung by the HarperCollins warehouse outside Glasgow, where I signed five hundred hardcovers of SONGS OF THE DYING EARTH. Ask for one at your favorite UK bookstore, they will be going all over the country.

Things are shaping up for the signing at Eason's in Belfast. Last night after the filming wrapped we stayed up late drinking with the cast, and I think we convinced a number of them to join us at Eason's. Should be a hoot and a half, assuming they don't come to their senses in the cold grey light of morning. I told them my readers were essentially harmless. Hah.

The cast is sensational, by the way.

George...
... Maybe this has been addressed before and I simply missed it, but given your experience with Beauty and the Beast, was it ever a thought that you would direct the Game of Thrones series yourself?

Re: George...
I don't direct. Even if I did, I have books to write.

A question about a question
One of the things that drew me into A Song of Ice and Fire was that the seasons occur over many years. I figured that it not only would be explained, but be even more integral to the plot than it already is. I am just wondering if it will ever be explained or if it will just be left at "Since the Doom came to Valyria."

Hiya,

I haven't posted on your blog before, but I've been a great fan of yours for years. I won't be able to make the signing, but hopefully I'll be able to come to the moot. Even if I can't, I'm very excited about seeing ASoIaF on screen =D The cast sound great so far!

Anyway, I was just wondering if minors (meaning a few days shy of 16) are welcome at the moot? McHugh's seems to be okay for it, which gives me hope, but if not, well... I guess I'll get over it eventually!

If so, I look forwards to maybe seeing you & the cast there.

Best wishes & hoping you enjoy your stay in sunny ol' NI

Everyone is welcome as far as I'm concerned, but I don't know the pub's policies, or the applicable laws.
