Five Days...

... till Kong is loosed upon the world.

Feels strange, after so many years. I know that some of you thought I would never finish. Believe me, there were dark nights of the soul where I had my doubts as well. But now the day is almost at hand, and the dragons will fly.

In fact, they are already taking wing. Bantam informs me that DANCE has just gone back for its 6th hardcover printing, and it isn't even on sale yet. The first reviews are breaking today, and so far (knock wood) they have all been great. And in the UK, Waterstone's in Glasgow has put up a brilliant window display:

Exciting times.

This is all so exciting! Some people get excited about movie launches, but I get over-the-moon excited about book launches. I can't wait to get my copy of A Dance with Dragons, even though I have to read the other books first!

I hope you have fun on your tour!

Audio version?
Gratz on the release George! Can't wait. Can you tell me if there are plans for an audio version, and when I might be able to purchase it (via a service such as Audible, for example)? Thank you!

Re: Audio version?
I don't know about a downloadable copy, but Amazon is showing the Audio CD version as shipping on the 12th, same as the books. I imagine it will be available at your local book store on Tuesday as well, if you'd prefer to get it in person.

Woo Hoo
I'll be reading mine on kindle when it comes out. Then I'll get a hardcover for you to sign at Redwood City. E-readers are great, but they aren't any fun for book signings. Yes, I'm a rabid fan! See you at the end of the month, sir.

Re: Woo Hoo
He'd probably sign your kindle...

I'm starting to get twitchy. I did my re-reads. I've avoided the spoilers. Now that we are in the home stretch I'm excited about what wonders await and apprehensive of what horrors will be lurking to break my heart.

Jul. 7th, 2011 04:52 pm (UTC)
I feel the exact same way. Squeeeee!!
Jul. 7th, 2011 03:50 pm (UTC)
Honestly, these five days are feeling like forever. The waiting is harder now I know it's only a few days until I get my hands on it.

:D I seriously can't wait now.

That's one hell of an awesome display. Pity I don't live in Glasgow, lol.

I've got my copy on order from Amazon, can't wait to get stuck in!
Jul. 7th, 2011 03:52 pm (UTC)
That display looks awesome! I eagerly await my copy of the book, though sadly I have to wait longer since I pre-ordered it along with another book that is not released until August. Maybe Amazon will take pity and ship it first.

I took time off of work for this
I have never taken time off of work to enjoy entertainment mroe immediately. I've always thought it was dumb to sacrifice vacation time to get to something faster.

This is different. Cannot wait until my Kindle downloads the book as I feverishly re-read the series up to this point. Took two days off just in case.

But that is a fantastic display. :D

Ah, I am envious. In this little corner in Asia *sob Philippines* we have to wait a bit longer.
Jul. 7th, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC)
so excited to get my hands on a copy! though I'll have to find someone to hold it for me while I go and graduate university that day, only something very important could take me away from reading!
Jul. 7th, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC)
Nice display...

But you realize this means in 6 days people will complain the next book is taking too long! :) :) :)
Jul. 7th, 2011 03:56 pm (UTC)
The wait for Dance was definitely worth it...
I've finished reading yesterday and now it's off to waiting again for Winds :(
Jul. 7th, 2011 03:57 pm (UTC)
Pre-ordered on kindle, and harcover. Plan to take my time and enjoy it <3
Jul. 7th, 2011 03:59 pm (UTC)
Can't wait
6th printing already? Fantastic news and that display is gorgeous. I am excited to see the noise and buzz that Kong will unleash. Colbert interview? Jeopardy category? National ASOIAF Day? The best thing about this Kong is he has wings! :)
