Home Again

A long, long day of travel yesterday, Barcelona to Atlanta to Albuquerque to Santa Fe. Followed by collapse.

But it's a new day, and I am back at my desk in the land of green chile. Just finished getting caught up on my email. So much work to do.

Thanks for all my friends in Spain for making our visit so much fun.

Why was the US mass market paperback and paperback version of A Dance with Dragons pushed back to March 2013?

At the request of booksellers.

OHHHHH! Thank you! I had been searching online for the answer and couldn't find it!

A Dance With Dragons
It has been in the top 20 of the Hardback list for just about an entire year. That hardly ever happens. Congrats on that, George. I hope it stays around in hardback for some time to come. It continues to climb the all-time hardback bestseller list.

It is now one of the best hardback bestsellers in the US during the history of the list. And I loved it. Beautifully written novel.

Thank you.

Yes, DANCE's run on the NYT list has been extraordinary. There are days I still don't quite believe it.

The only hard part is, now I have to do it again...

Re: A Dance With Dragons
I eagerly await your attempt to do it again. Winds of Winter is the book I anticipate more than any other since...well...A Dance With Dragons.

I was waiting at the bookstore the day A Feast For Crows was published. I know my contribution helped it hit #1 that week, but your fan-base is now enormous. I was rubbing shoulders with many fans back then, but now the world has discovered these books. It's about friggin' time.

Thanks to HBO for signing up and opening it up to millions of new readers. My copies of all the books have made the rounds in my family. After preaching to my family like The Damphair for years, finally some of them have listened and become huge fans in their own right. I won't be the only one in my family, now, standing in line on publication day of The Winds of Winter. And if it takes another 5 years before that day, so be it. I've been here before.

So what about the bonus chapter from "The Winds of Winter" that was promised to appear on "Dance" paperbacks?

Maybe will your loyal fans be able to read it on your site?

We were sure to read something new in this summer... ;)
