In the Apple

A busy week. So much to report, so little time.

I am spending a lt of my time over at Bantam, working with my editor Anne Groell on copyediting and proofing A DANCE WITH DRAGONS to get all the ducks in a row for the July 12 pubdate. A lot of work in a short time frame, but it's going well. Sill have the appendix to nail down, which becomes first priority when I return home May 5.

Watching some of the NFL draft in spare moments, but I've been in such a crunch this year I did not do any of my usual prep, so I have no idea who most of these players are. The Jets and Giants have picked some people. Hope they're good. The Giants got a prince, I see. Not the one who just got married.

Visited the HBO Store yesterday. Incredibly cool, and the people running it were terrific. I signed all the copies of my book on hand, so if there are any New Yorkers reading this who would like an autographed copy, head over to HBO post haste.

All four volumes of the series are now on the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller list. I've got a lot to celebrate and I've been doing a lot of celebrating.

Oh, and of course, there was the TIME 100 Gala, where Phipps and I dressed up like grown-ups and hung out with some amazing people. More on that when we get home.

Hello George, it's my first time writing to your blog although I've been reading it for some time.I am also new to your books.I read all of them 6 months ago.A part of me was "how could you wait so long to read something so perfect but another part of me is saying this is the perfect time to read Dance so you were lucky to read them now". I am going through my fifth reread and they get better with every reading. I am very happy for you and all of your latest success.Congratulations!!!You deserve every bit of it and much more...which I am sure will come.You also deserve a very good rest I think after the book is done but with so much coming I wonder if you'll get it.The TV series is also perfect, I watch that too, they really honour your work.

Can I ask you one question, no spoiler I swear:for those of us who perhaps have the crazy idea to read Feast for Crows together with Dance with Dragons as one in a sort of merge (imagine that reading, it will be glorious, one chapter from one book another two from the other...you get the idea) would there be some way for you to tell us the order in which the chapters from each of those books should be read to achieve the right chronological order. I suppose we could easily guess but you can never be sure....only you know best....I confess that the idea struck me immediately after reading Feast which I adored by the way.

I am very sorry for such a long message
Take care above all!!!!

Time insanity
George actually posted sometime ago that he felt sorry for whomever tackled the task of consolidating the time line of events in FoC and DoD. Because it would be a daunting task. >.
