Two more [short] chapters done. More to come.

Kong grows bigger and bigger. Past 1600 pp in manuscript now. Oy.

Certainly the biggest monkey ever to climb on my back.

(Okay, okay, the biggest ape).

Keep climbing, Kong. The biplanes are on their way. Listen? Is that their engines?

Looking forward!
Looking forward to it! That, and the potential seven-book hardcover box set with matching jacket designs. Fantastic series so far, loving it!

Re: Looking forward!
Hardcover boxed set? Do you know something I don't?

Not sure anyone does hardcover boxed sets. Boxed sets are usually for paperbacks.

I feel a strange urge to wave pom-poms and do high kicks while simultaneously spraying fire from a deliciously retro biplane.

Not sure why.

Great news on more chapters done George!!!

I was wondering if you know which cover the canadian edition of the book will have?

Thanks, and keep on going Mate!

Giant Ape vs Epic writer with an epic almost wizardly beard on a biplane

that monkey was doomed from the beginning
keep at it George!

(Okay, okay, the biggest ape).
Did I just see a Pratchett quote here ?

Biplanes will be successful, I'm sure !

Go, George, go! Between the releases of the latest Rothfuss and Erickson books, your HBO series about to premiere, and Kong being right around the corner, all us epic fantasy geeks are in heaven right now. I swear, it feels like the mid 90s all over again!
Mar. 27th, 2011 07:47 pm (UTC)
1600? Owch. ADWD is going to make even THE WISE MAN'S FEAR and THE WAY OF KINGS look modest in size.

Do you have an idea of how many chapters are going to be in the book? I'm going to guess between 80 and 90 based on the previous books :-)
Mar. 28th, 2011 03:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah, show them what a REAL book is. :D
Mar. 27th, 2011 07:49 pm (UTC)
Good to see you're off Skull Island and apparently at the Empire State Building!

I can't help but wonder how many chapters will be in the book if you finished two more!

Feast POVs
I was wondering... are there still some POVs from Feast staying for the Dance (like, let´s say, a certain Queen, who got in trouble with the faith?) or did they already fall from the crowded roof of the Empire State Building, blown away by winter winds?

Re: Feast POVs
Been answered before, many time. Yes--there will timeline overlap/continuation and the plan is to include some PoV continuations of Feast characters.

Keep up the hard work - you'll get there when you get there. :)

can you translate what manuscript pages would work out to actual book pages? a rough estimate maybe?

wow though!
Mar. 27th, 2011 09:21 pm (UTC)
The previous books were:

AGoT: 1,088 manuscript pages
ACoK: c. 1,150 MS pages
ASoS: 1,521 MS pages
AFFC: About 1,100 MS pages

The hardcover and paperback editions are somewhat inconsistent with this, though, due to formatting. In the UK editions, for example, ASoS in 920 pages in hardcover and about 1,300 in mass-market paperback (actually two 650-page volumes), but AFFC, which is substantially shorter in MS pages, is still about 850 pages in hardcover and 950 pages in paperback. I understand the US paperback is actually closer to 1,000 pages.

Based on all of that, ADWD should easily exceed 1,000 pages in hardcover and over 1,300 in paperback. But the publishers might choose to go with much narrower margins and a smaller font that takes that down.

Go, George. Go, George.

*sends sedative laced bananas in hopes of knocking the ape out*

As the song goes, 'this is the book that never ends...' but it will! You can do it! :)

Godspeed, good sir. We're all cheering for you.
